Not to be boring , I have a really bad history with dye and hair fall, so dyes are out of option. Any advice? I really can't stress enough how ridiculous it looks when I'm outside.
    Do you remember the name of the product? Henna shouldn't be black, that makes me think that it might have indigo or even some fairly nasty chemicals in it.

    I'm pretty unknowledgeable about henna but I bet knowing what product it is would help others help you.

    If it's "henna, indigo, and some chemicals" it is NOT henna, it's a 'henna compound' which is pretty much a chemical dye mixed in with henna powder for posterity's sake. Proceed with extreme caution when removing it and strand test everything first.

    Agreed, I would be extremely cautious about anything referred to as "black henna." One of my best grad school chums is a professional henna artist and has told me absolute horror stories about the scarring and burns people often get from using "black" henna powders. My understanding is that it's generally more dangerous to use for body art than for hair, but if the stuff you used had PPD in it (which "black henna" typically does) it may leave you with a sensitivity/propensity for allergic reactions that you didn't have before. Trying to cover it with another chemical dye could be a recipe for a very bad reaction.
