    Default Henna users! How do you prefer your red?

    Just wondering ! Us hennaheads will often lift mountains in order to achieve the "right" shade of henna red, so... what kind of results do you try to obtain?

    Also, also: sorry for my grammar, as usual. I should have probably written as close to a True Red it can get

    Coppery red for me - but I don't need to lift mountains for that, I get that quite easily due to my middle brownish natural color

    Im naturaly fair, so the coppery colour isn't too difficult for me. I do pop a dash of cinnamon and honey in most of my treatments to keep it from the burgandy realm....

    I've stopped using henna now, but when I did, I mixed it with cassia to get coppery red. (About 60% cassia I think, but I haven't done it for over a year, so I can't quite remember)

    I love dark red henna, it wasn't hard to get last time I did it I just mixed my henna up with tea with hibiscus flowers in it and left it in my hair for 6 hours.

    I prefer my henna on the warm side -- even though I think I may be cool complected, it suits me better than the burgundy tones. I would love to have light, coppery hair but my natural color is too dark. However, the grays I am starting to get are that color.

    I am always chasing that gorgeous dark wine color.

    Isn't it weird? I'm more on the cool side when complexion is involved, but burgundy looks terribly unflattering on me. Always wondered why this happens...

    I prefer a copper red, because I think it suits my complexion and age better, but I'm happy as long as it's red. (I was strawberry blond until my 20's when it turned ash brown, so that might be another reason I'd like it lighter.) Still, if my hair is copper, bright red, or auburn; I'm happy as a clam. Currently, my hair is auburn with bright copper temples. Thank you God, for the gray on the sides to break things up.

    Henna keeps it red, and red makes me happy.

    Looks like I'm in the minority wanting a true ("Ariel") type red. That perfect shade that lies between copper and burgundy. I was overzealous in the past and over-hennaed and got myself to burgundy. But I'm trying to phase that out by only doing my roots now.
