can indigo be used on level 9-10 blond to create grey?

after many years of using henndigo, I decided to let my grey go and I am really enjoying the process. I've had my hair that was dyed bleached all the way to a level 8,  9 or 10 and have tried different blue tints to get it to grey. I'm wondering if indigo can be used in this way. I'd be so psyched if it could! Anyone out there tried this?

Oiliness after henna for hair

HI I've been hennaing my short fine hair for a few months. Is it normal for hair to become super oily? I need to wash it every two days now due to the oiliness. If it were longer hair I probably wouldn't need to but it looks awful if I don't wash it. Also when I do wash it, the longer parts of my hair feel very course and crunchy. However once it is dry it appears very healthy and shiny. Does anyone have a solution to the oiliness. I don't use any other product in my hair for styling. Just use a no cone no sls shampoo and conditioner. Thank you! Kaybee

Amla "Solo"

Hi everyone.   I have a question about amla.  

If I use amla only on previously dyed henna hair, will it tone down the orange/bright red?  If so, how do I do the application?  And what is the most likely result? 

(I'm looking for a light auburn-brown, but I'm currently VERY red.)

Thank you!

Where to buy buxus?

Hi.  I checked Mehandi's website for buxus, and I couldn't find it.  Am I missing it?  Could someone please post a link to purchase?  

Thank you!

How to color 90% grey to brown/black NOT Jet black

Dear forum,

I've been using the two step method to cover my greys to black succussfully for over 5 years.  But lately, I want my hair to look more natural meaning black/brown but not jet black.  With 90% grey, I don't think a one step method will work (ie. 60% indigo/40% hena mix), since you will  see unnatural red tones that that I want to avoid. and with 90% grey, I don't think the dye will be strong enough to take up and the coverage probably won't last.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Maybe vary the second step? 

Many thanks!

Histamine Intolerance

 

Hi

Since last year I have been getting urticaria/hives, mainly when I am outside in the cold (cold urticaria) but have occassionally had them in the house.

I have seen an Immunologist who says the hives are cuased by having high histamine in the body (the cold casues the histamine to raise)

I used henna and cassia on my hair around the same time all this started and have not used it since. I have still been getting the hives.
