So I would like to dye my hair with henna, but I do not have a market that sells any locally.

What is a good brand to look for online?

I use Henne Henna powder in auburn. I usually get it from ebay as it is the cheapest usually. Have you dyed your hair before henna or otherwise and what colour is your own hair?

Interested in Personal Swaps..

I'm incredibly loyal to Light Mountain brand. The "red" is the only one I can find that has just henna, nothing else in it. It has a fox on the box. Unless your hair is super super thick or long, you should have enough in a box for several batches. I can usually use one box for three or four dyes, and my hair is thick-ish and about waist length.

I started using the one from Lush-I didnt look where you were from and if you have one near by..I started using that one just because it was convenient..but have gone online since the one from Lush was super duper expensive :/

Thank you for the replies!

Have you dyed your hair before henna or otherwise and what colour is your own hair?

I have not dyed it with Henna, but I've been dying my hair for a decade now, give or take. I kept it burgundy for a long while, then dyed it dark brown. Around Easter last year, I bleached the majority of it and dyed those parts pink with Jerome Russell Punky Colour; the pink stayed vibrant in it until I had it cut and overdyed it with Herbal Essences dye in dark brown. I would like a burgundy-ish color with the henna, but am not sure what the range of colors available are. I will probably lighten my hair before I use the henna, so it's not just brown with red highlights.

If you need help deciding how to do your henna for whatever colours/shades you're looking at, the first resource you need to check out is the link for henna4hair listed above. It's an EXCELLENT site with a LOT of useful information, including a ton of recipes contributed by everyday henna users and before/after pics.

Personally, I've been using henna brought from Dubai by my sister in law for the last bunch of years when I lived in Sri Lanka. Now that I'm in Auckland, I'll be using whatever the Indian shops have - I've already checked 'em out, and they carry pure henna, so it's no problem.

I like From Nature With Love http://www.fromnaturewithlove.com/product.asp?product_id=HERBHENNA&searchflag=1 because they're quick, reliable, and generally local to me (same coast). This is what I use on my hair.

They have a Canadian and US store. I love that site. I have used Jamila as well as Yemeni. I don't bother trying to buy mixes. I prefer just plain henna.

I also suggest NOT lightening your hair before coloring or else when you colour your roots they will be a different color than the rest of your hair.

www.thehennapage.com  Ive bought their indigo dyes.  They are very flexible with payment methods and are great for communications.  They also have a TONNE of tutorials

be careful using henna if you have recently dyed your hair with other products--it can react differently and produce odd colors.  the websites listed here will mention that though.
