    Default What does many layers of henna look like?

    It's been some years since I've used henna, and I remember 6 layers into using red raj, I turned my almost black dark brown hair a natural shade of red that others commented on. I just can't remember what it looks like anymore, does anyone know of some pictures of what dozens of layers of henna look like? I'm not talking about applying henna every weekend, but someone who uses it for years and follows the typical 4-6 week cycle.

    I am curious about this as well

    I have never henna'd my hair so I cant offer any info but I too have dark brown hair and am curious as to what color can be achieved with multiple layers.

    I've been henna'ing mine for 3 years now, so I can take a pic tomorrow when there's better light, and put it up for you. But my hair is significantly lighter than yours, so it might not be that helpful for you.

    For me, several (3-4) henna applications made my dark brown hair very noticeably lighter outdoors (by several shades, not just a "halo"), but it looked dark indoors... as I am starting over and going to be using henna again, I would also like to see how much it can change over longer time!

    You mean you have no pictures at all of your hair before henna (that's odd), compared to now?

    I would try and collage a few photos together; then see for yourself.

    littlestarface, what henna are you using, just pure henna or some mixed variation? This is very close to the colour I would love to achieve, but my starting colour is brown and your appears to be black..?

    I was using yemeni henna and then I switched to celebration henna and then red raj for like 10 years so not a mix of henna always just plain henna every application which was every month or twice a month sometimes. Now I'm slowly cutting it out, my hair is a natural brown black, like this.

    Wow littlestarface, I love both colors. Your natural is striking though.
