Topic: Finding Right Henna/Indigo
Hi! I have porous hair that readily takes on red and black colors. That said, when I tried the Light Brown with Amla (no indigo) my hair took on a nice light brown color but didn't last long.
Without the Amla, the Light Brown henna made my hair turn orange.
When I tried the Light Brown with Indigo, my hair came out nearly jet black.
When I tried the Medium Brown henna with Amla (no indigo), the orange color became more intense.
I cover the "mistakes" with Aveda's Black Malva color conditioner. This helps but I cannot afford the time and aggravation to experiment. Can someone help me find the right amounts? My natural hair is medium brown -- it's more brown than black.
