@Saltwater Thanks! When I was young there were rumours about those Henna powders giving other colours than red contained some nasty substances. I know real henna is red. I'll read about suitable additives at hennaforhair. Due to the length of my hair, I'm scared to end up with a disaster.

Forgot to mention that my hair is dark blond with some reddish highlights and I got a wonderful auburn colour with Red Henna. Now I'm in my sixties and have very long hair reaching below my buttocks. I'd love to get rid of the grey. Anyone out there with long dark blond hair using Henna? I don't want my hair to turn red. Any colour of Henna that would just add some red highlights? Any other tips?

@Saltwater You could try and mix Henna with coffee it is perfect for dark hair if you want to avoid any red accents.

Hi! When I was young I loved to use red henna and it made my hair look wonderful. With gray hair you should be cautious, as it can turn your hair an unpleasant greenish hue. Just make a test before trying any kind of henna if your hair is gray. Your hair looks fab. I used the ordinary powdered henna like the one you bought at Rainbow.
