I found ONE thing you can add to the henna paste that keeps henna from
ever hitting the orange phase!
(other than heavy steaming and the ammonia trick which are complex
With terpinol, the Jani henna I did at the link below stayed deep
redwood until the last fleck. Honest to god!
The demise is relatively quick, like Earth Henna and Mehndi Mud ...
and for that matter, the color is very similar to those two ....
so, do some work with terpines (go through that link) and see if that
might be an answer for you.

Also .... you'll probably ALWAYS have some limb or other in a
fade-down phase and show them that as an example.

Have a look at the link below to see what terpines can do!
