be very careful to not get a metalic based dye. I would suggest going to a salon to dye over your hennaed head! The chemicals in haircolor can react adversley to the henna dye, the same with veggie based dyes. At the very least PLEASE do not use drugstore boxed colors. They are terrible for your hair and are sure to react. Go to a salon store like Sally's and get the color you want and some developer! The lady's there will be sure to help you out!

Does anyone know anything about dyeing over henna. I dyed my hair with henna about 4 months ago and now I want to dye my hair dark brown. I know I've read you can't dye over henna but I was thinking since it's been 4 months and it's faded a lot and also since I'm going darker it might be okay.


Some types of dye will work on henna, some won't show up at all, and some will react strangely with the henna color and turn a really strange color (I've seen toxic-sludge green).

It's pretty hard to predict what's going to happen, so definitely do a strand test.  Get some stray hairs from your hairbrush (or trim a little off your head somewhere it won't show) and test the dye on that.  If it comes out the way you want, go ahead and do your entire head.

It is a good idea to go ask someone at a salon, but make sure they know what they're talking about.  Sometimes there are chemical dyes that are marketed as henna (and only contain a small amount of real henna mixed with other dyes) and the stylist might think you're talking about that, or not know the difference between chemical henna and pure natural henna.

Here's some links about using henna on your hair.

I've had my hair every color under the sun... and all kinds of styles. This is my most recent. Not the best pictures.. but I think you get the idea. Cheesy





It's kinda mullet/ziggy stardust. I can also put the top in a faux hawk. Sweeeeeet dude.

The picture I showed my stylist (who is also my customer.. as I manage the beauty supply store she shops at) was a lot longer... she got sissor happy I think. But, I like it. At first I kinda hated it because my bf was a little shocked... but he then came to love it, and so did I. Cheesy

I'm going to be bleaching my hair soon.  My question: what are the foils used for highlights made out of?  Is it just regular aluminum foil?
I don't want to pay extra for hair foils if I could just use the kitchen stuff.  Then again, I don't want the bleach to react with the aluminum and fry my hair if it's the wrong thing.

Thanks in advance!

it is just regular foil. some professional stores sell a specific kind but you can just use kitchen foil for it. in fact i worked at a very high class well known salon in boston and they used kitchen ones. they got the half size sheets and ripped them in half for a piece big enough for a foil.

Thanks!

Also, I'd be bleaching over hair that's already dyed.  How can I tell if it's safe or if it will damage my hair?

I'm just updating....

Today I dyed my hair! I'm really happy with it..and the fact that I did it all by myself!...It was my first time. Oh and I did the cut myself too, not that it looks any good.


This is the post I made a year back
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=30298.msg788599#msg788599


I have dyed my hair since then including having it dark blonde on top and red at the bottom, and I also had darkish brown with orange/red streaks.


And this is my hair now...

I love it now...I like the whole dark red colour..but mt mom says it dosen't suit my skin tone. I like it..and personally I think it makes my eyes look nice. So, nah!  Grin

The colour looks very natural, and I agree with foreversandals it really does make your eyes pop! I think it suits ya well.
