    I’ve been where you are multiple times, in terms of struggling to find henna/indigo suppliers I like. I live in an area where Indian stores open every couple of years, last for a few months, then close up. I’ve never been able to get a consistent local supply of either. Even online shopping has had its frustrations. Currently I Amazon subscribe-and-save my henna and indigo, but I’ve had to change brands multiple times as certain ones will go on and off the list. Ugh there’s always that scary trial period where I’m not certain I’ll like the new brand. At the moment, I love the indigo I have subscribe-and-saved, but my henna just went off the list. I bought it in bulk so I can stay in my same routine for a few months, but once that runs out I’ll be scrambling again. I really like the aspect of automatically having my color sent to me when I need it, so it’s frustrating when there are disruptions to that.

    ——

    Current color varies between a cool black and a warm black/dark brown, depending on how long it’s been since a henndigo. This is what it looks like during the middle of the cycle:

    Yes.
    After this go I think I might switch to pravana. I’ll have to touch up more often but it’ll be consistent.
    I won’t have to search and search.

    Rebeccalaurenxx I'm also at a loss not being able to buy what I usually used where I'm living now... switching to something easier to buy might be a good idea. It's looking long, though, and very curly in that pic.

    C_Bookworm the colour looks great, bluish black, at least in the photo. It's what I'm always aiming for

    Thanks! Bluish Black is my dream color as well. Iíve played around with lots of different henna/indigo combinations, and different glosses like manic panic, pravana, Arctic Fox, etc. I keep hoping for that magic combination that gives the right color but isnít an untenable amount of work. Havenít found it yet though.

    My only issue is I know something else, will create the green-blue hue I don’t like.
    I prefer to either have a red or purple hue, as my natural color doesn’t look great with that green undetone.
    I don’t know what else to try, other then a straight up purple, but I don’t want purple hair lol

    I'm thinking of trying pravana in blue, because what I saw from piggy was that using blue or purple wont make it fade to green like say arctic fox will. So i'm gonna go for blue and god I hope I dont mess up my hair lol I really dont want blue hair but blue black will be nice. I'm really tired of this maroon color I got from henna.

    How can I control my life when I can't even control my hair!

    You should be fine! I've been using Pravana for the same effect (i have a fresh tube of Violet bought yesterday!) and it holds better against black than other brands for my hair. Manic Panic is so-so but Arctic Fox washed out/dropped out in about 4 washes (?!).

    For several years I've been creating "raven feather" hair that has a bluish/purplish/greenish effect in sunlight, but looks normal black in regular light/indoors. I adore the blue-black color too, and freak when it looks even a little "brown".

    4 inches of my roots are virgin hair. The remaining length has been bleached and box dyed brown so the length is a lighter brown with reddish hues in the light. My virgin hair is a dark brown with red undertones.
