Topic: Green Tinge after last henna treatment
After my last henna treatment, I had a green tinge that rubbed off on my neck and hands and anything that got close to my hair. I wasn't sure if this was a result of not successfully rinsing out all of the henna. I have long, thick, curly hair or if I messed up the mix. I did not measure the mixes, but used a combination of dark brown and black henna. I have dark brown hair with greys. I got henna shy after this most recent attempt and haven't tried since. Any advice anyone can offer about how to prevent this from happening again would be greatly appreciated, and if anyone has any advice to share that would help the process of using henna on thick, long hair more manageable, I would love to hear it. I really want to adopt a healthier, more natural approach to care for my hair, but I'm too vain to keep the greys.
Also, I've noticed that when I use the henna after mixing and waiting, the mixture is much thicker than when I started. Is it okay to add more tea to the mixture at this point to make it more manageable?
