Topic: Mixing light brown and dark brown henna? Best idea for bleached ends?
Hi, I ordered 1 bag of Medium Brown Henna. I saw on a blog by someone who uses MM Henna and has similar length and textured hair as I, and said she needs 2. She had canisters, I think it was over 2 years ago she posted the video. I'm assuming it is the same amount in the bags and canisters? I will be buying a second bag before I take the plunge. But I am wondering... About 3-4 inches of the end of my hair is a orangey, blonde yucky color. I had been doing semi color glazes ever since the awful experience of my friend just graduating hair school doing my hair and then going to the salon to get it fixed. The seasoned hair stylist bleached my hair without my consent! All of a sudden I asked her why it smelled so bad and she told me it was from the bleach and she would only be using a little on certain strands!
So my question is, should I use dark brown on the ends? And what would mixing the medium brown Henna and dark henna cause? I do not want black hair. I was just afraid that I may end up with that if I bought the dark brown. I would rather have it be darker vs lighter. Will the medium brown make my hair lighter? Or would it cause my hair to become red or orange at all? I certainly do not want that. My hair is a dark medium brown and sort of ashy. I do have a lot of natural highlights as well.
