I tried using a mixture of henna and indigo this time. I used 300g of indigo and 200g of henna. I was going for dark brown. It still has a lot of red in it, but it’s not quite as bright as just henna. I was a little afraid the first day or 2 because my hair had taken on a grayish tone, but after the color set in it looked much better.
These pics were of course taken almost 4 years apart and obviously not in the same room, but I tried to get the lighting as similar as possible. You can hardly tell the difference in color, which is pretty true to reality. The main differences I can see are the grays are more of a blondish-brown instead of orange, and the ends seem much darker. The over-all color isn’t very different. If my hair were naturally lighter, it would probably be a more obvious difference.
