    Default Has anyone ever used henna to dye their hair?

    I was curious about using henna to add some color to my hair. Has anyone ever used it before? I'm hoping that perhaps this would be something I could use sometime in the future (when I'm old ) to cover up gray hair since they say that it looks really natural and it doesn't use harsh chemicals. Thoughts?

    I have not used henna, but i know many people who have, including my sister.
    henna is a herb. it is the powdered leaf of a plant. The application of henna is very tricky depending upon the original color of your hair. My sister had light brown hair, and when she applied henna, it turned a carrot orange

    When I was a a little girl my mother was using henna to my hair because it's useful for the hair not because the color but when I grew up I didn't use it because I hate it but my mother still use it to her hair untill now to cover up her gray hair.
    My mother's hair color looks beautiful. It is not a specific color, it's ranging from brown to burgundy you can't imagine

    I don't like the henna to the hair but I actually love it on hands like the pic below

    I've never used it so it's interesting to note other people's experiences.

    FU~ I bet your sis wasn't thrilled with the results
    lo0 whisper 0ove~ When I got married, I had similar henna drawn on my hands and feet. I was lucky I had a cousin who did it for me and it turned out beautiful

    frbspa, no my sister wasn't thrilled. she was horrified She ran to target with a towel around her head to buy brown hair dye and recolor it before my BIL came back home!!!

    I laughed so hard that day. Every time we see someone with distinctly orange shade hair, we start giggling!!

    I too had henna done on my hands and feet for my wedding. It is traditional. loved it!!

    I used henna and got good results. It probably depends on what kind of henna you use. I have naturally dark brown hair and henna made it a shade darker (chocolate hue). I also used regular hair color after a few months and there were no complications.
    Some henna is used to turn your hair a red hue, but some is also for other colors. I used Morocco Method (you can google it :) and my friend did also-we got great results!

    So are you saying that it's a lot harder to use that it looks? They have a video on the product's website. They make everything look so easy.

    I would definitely say it is a "tricky" product.

    I am positive it will improve hair health and give it a beautiful shine, but be prepared for dramatic colors

    If you are felling adventurous, go for it

    I used henna many years ago to achieve a reddish tinge. It looked nice. I have a big block of Lush henna to use soon.
