The only people I think look a bit odd with dyed black hair are those with nearly white facial hair, and too red skin/blotchy skin. No offense to anyone, I just mean only in those few cases I could think it looks overwhelming.
    Thank you! That's quite reassuring, I'm very minimal with makeup (no eyeliner or lipstick etc) and even my black dresses are more victorian than what I'd think of as gothic (steryotypically at least!).

    I did think it was a bit much! That was the cheapest one on there too! Perhaps it's because of where I am, but even then.

    I found this, too, but don't know how reliable the website is. I'm guessing it's the same stuff as the box though? https://www.myhenna.us/zenia-indigo-...era-tinctoria/
