    I think cassia also has strengthening effect but with no color change. You could look into it.

    Your progress pictures in this thread were the final push to quit dyeing my hair. It was so helpful to see the different stages of growing out dye and made the journey seem far less daunting. So happy to hear that you still enjoy your natural colour, I think it looks wonderful on you!

    My plan is to slowly trim away the dye as well. A big chop will probably be really tempting when my virgin hair reaches my shoulders. Hopefully I'll be able to remember that I prefer the length over the colour, as long as it's still in decent condition.
    Thank you!
    I am very happy that i could inspire some people. Growing out is tough, especially first few months.

    My hair color now is actually pretty different from how it was a few years earlier and that's probably the only reason i like it more. And i also got a compliment from my hair dresser. She said a lot of ladies come in and ask her to dye their hair my color. It was a great encouragement to keep growing out.

    I like all the different tones and shades you get in your natural hair, no dyes can replicate that.

    Keep your natrual hair. Henna is a commitment it's almost impossible to get out

    That is very true, and also one of the reasons I have grown to like my ashy tone. It looks one solid block of color, but it isn't, and it especially shows in the sunshine. Love that!

    I made double buns, and the picture really shows how the henna grow-out is going. Some strands at the top are growing slower I think and so I have red random strands that don't fit into updoes. Most of my fringe is dark blond now.

    Honestly, thank you guys. I think I'm deciding off henna for good. When I have damage I'm just so finicky about it; I usually chop it off without a care about how short it'll leave my hair, but I'm obviously trying to keep my length so I wanted to do something with it. Whew. I had no idea it would be so hard to just leave my hair the heck alone.

    If I do decide to do something besides sit on my hands I'll order cassia, and only apply to the damaged parts. I have amla and fenugreek in my arsenal currently, so I'll use that sparingly and just hop on over to the benign neglect thread and take notes .

    How do you all make it through the first 6 months? I just found a old splat bleach kit and immediately put a soap cap on my head.

    After six years, I think I'm finally going to try and give up using henna on my hair. I want a change, and it feels so dark to me after so many layers. No regrets, but it's time for a new chapter.

    My big problem is leaving it alone once I start coloring. I was fine until I colored it blond last month. Now I've had blue, pink and bleach in it.
    It is a really nice blond now. Looks like the color I had as a teen.

    I had no idea that bleach was there. I found it buried in my hoarders closet while looking for something else. I do need to toss out the last little bit, still enough for another soap cap lol.
