Choosing the Right Henna Hair Color for You

Picking a henna hair color can be tricky. Unlike traditional dyes, which simply coat the hairs in harsh chemicals to achieve an exact color, henna hair dye works like glosses of paint, in that the end-result color is largely a combination of the dye color and your base hair color. For example, medium brown henna on red hair will produce a different result than the same dye on blonde hair.

So how do I pick a henna color that’s right for me?

The color result of any henna application will be highly individualistic due to differences in base hair color, thickness and texture. An important henna dyeing tip is to always select a shade lighter than the color your are hoping to achieve, especially if you’ve never done henna before.

As an example, if you wanted dark brown hair, then the best color to start with is medium brown henna. The reason for this is because you can always go darker with multiple applications; you can’t, however, go lighter.

Sometimes to achieve the right color, or to get rid of henna’s inherent red tint, multiple applications are necessary. You can reapply henna as often as you like, giving at least 72 hours between each application.

The 72 hour window is there so that the henna has enough time to oxidize in your hair. Henna rapidly oxidizes following the initiation application and will often deepen in color during this time window.
