    Default How do I get this color?

    What proportion, mix henna? Cassia? Cinnamon? Or What kind of henna?

    A pic of your colour would be helpful!

    I'd say do one full head henna with a lower lawsone content,to give your hair a coppery base and then build up the intensity with glosses,or henna/cassia applications.Or not,if you'll like the colour.

    ETA:You're hungarian?
    Is hennécolor henna sold in your country?It is here in Slovakia,and their copper shade gave me a very similar colour on ash brown hair.

    I have pictures in my blog, but not as dark as it looks in the picture. Hennécolor there, but not like it because it is not entirely natural.

    I pretty much have that hair color and I achieved it with 33% henna and 66% cassia mixed with some chamomile tea and lemon, but my natural hair color is lighter than yours. In other words, I've no idea. Maybe you should experiment around a bit first.

    believe the powdered ones,especially the copper shade is pure henna I don't think it's BAQ,though.

    Your hair colour is very beautiful!But I'm not sure if I can help you any further.It seems to me that your colour is actually lighter,but less warm and coppery than the colour you wish to achieve,so,in conclusion, I'd still use just pure henna...and build up with glosses.

    I'd do a full henna application, and leave it in for not so long. Max. 1,5 hour. See how it gets. Then build up with glosses.

    And this... Good, pure henna, has a copperish shade already.

    Yeah.Pure henna is coppery,so it's just logical for a brand selling pre-mixed henna/indigo/cassia blends to label the box with pure henna and nothing added as "copper" ...
    I was just suggesting it as something I tried,got a good result with and what might be easily available to the OP -as you know,there are hennas with lower lawsone and higher lawsone content,and the one in the hennécolour copper seems to have just the right lawsone content to get this colour

    ETA: To be truthful,some of the hennécolour shades contain sodium picramate,the ones that promise redder results,because that's what sodium picramate is used for.
