Hendgigo different red base and different stages


Firstly I have found this forum to be amazing at assisting me in restoring my greying dark brown to a youthful glossy dark brown with a variety of trial and error. I had an anaphylactic shock reaction over a year ago having had my hair semi-permanently coloured dark brown at the salon which I had done for years. Two paramedics, a hospital visit, a near coma experience, body on fire and breathing three times faster than safe, definitely brought it home to me. I am allergic to PPD and its sister chemicals in dark hair dyes.

Need some red in my orange henna hair

I have on my hair twilight with nightshade. I put it on about a year ago.  Saw the photo someone else took of my hair recently and don't like how orange it is.  Recently I put on some more of the same product to blended my roots. I left it on for ten hours. How what product can I put on to add some red or auburn in my hair? Thanks so much for your help. Signed, unhappily a carrot-top!

Hendigo not covering grey/ 2 step too dark help please

Hi, I started using henna and Indig 2 step method  on my very dark brown hair which had some highlights in it and for the first couple of uses I loved it. I got a lovely chocolatey brown. However, after time, when my highlights had grown out, the two step mix (even though I was only doing the roots) started to make my hair a blue black. I then switched to hendigo but it makes my grey an orangey colour. I am using premium quality henna and indigo.

A Little Gray in the Hairline

Hello,   This is regarding an article that I found on this website dealing with covering gray in the hairline.  Somebody on the site was talking about  (Situation) they had great henna coverage on their hair, but, Not the hairline area. And, One of your people (Hennaforhair) Made a point, they use,  I believe, suggested that they use Conditioner, and Henna, I believe there was more to it.

Expense of cassia

Is there something inexpensive to use in place of cassia?

I generally use 100g of cassia with 2 teaspoons of henna. This gives my naturally light auburn hair a nice reddish boost and gives my 20% white/gray hair a very natural-looking strawberry blond color. I don't like the pink/rosy tint that henna can give white hair on its own, but diluted in the cassia, I get the color I want. However, the cassia had no discernible effect on the color of my hair at all when I used it on its own.

Dye release time for copperberry

I've lost my instructions. I have 1 packet of copperberry and 100 grams of henna. If I mix with distiller water, how long for dye release? Thanks! 

Henna/Indigo disaster

 So I order LUSH Caca Nior, not knowing much about henna or indigio. So I followed the directions LUSH gave me and ended up with green tipped ends. This is due that my Mid-hair and ends had been chemically bleached 6months prior. I later found out chemicals cannot be placed onto the hair after hennaed. So I did it again (LUSH Caca Nior), actually I did it four times Twice in one week, Twice in the following week (which was last week). So with these applications I got the green to turn BLACK like PITCH BLACK.

Where and What Shikakai and Cassia to Buy

Does anyone know reputable brands  for cassia and shikakai? I have used Zenia and Hesh shikakai and Zenia cassia. Should cassia always be fresh...2015 or 2016 crop? Is 2013 ok? I have read to buy these products at local Indian shops, not online. I live in MA. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you!

Hi I would be happy if somebody could help my with my henna application please. I´ve got some guestions:

Cassia and dye release



I have purchased some cassia and want try this to see if it will cover my greys, now that they are appearing more, and wondered what is the best to use as a dye release.

I have been reading adding lemon to cassia can cause some people to have sensitivity on the scalp as the lemon is too acidic and orange maybe a better option.

I have quite a few fresh oranges that have not been eaten so can I squeeze and use the juice from these to add to the cassia or would I need to buy orange juice in a carton to use ?
