Perhaps the acid of the second application leaches out the dye from
the first application?? I say this because once while i was getting
ready to henna, i had let my bowl of paste sit overnight, and all the
dye had risen to the top, you know what i mean? I realized that it
was a little too thik, so i put in a few drops of lemon juice. And
what should happen but the areas that the lemon touched turned bright
green, and the dye was carried away with the lemon...
just a thought..

: I'm really frustrated by this... I tried to do a fresh overlay of
: henna part of a design that didn't turn out as dark as the rest. I
: left it on just as long as I had the first time, figuring a little
: darker would be less noticeable than a little lighter. When I took
: the paste, the spot I had hennaed was even lighter than it had been
: before. Now the rest of the design was a mahogany color except for
: milk-chocolate patch! Has anyone else seen this phenomenon? Got any
: ideas on how to correct it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
: Thanks!
: Sophie
