You must know by now that henna stains in the orange-red-brown range
and never black on its own. Most hair dye that stains black is made
from PPD, which is seriously dangerous. However, I would guess from
your post that what you used is not PPD but henna mixed with indigo.
It is known to turn green, but usually blackens afterward, or after
multiple applications. I would definitely check to make sure, though
as PPD-based dyes have been known to kill, or at least cause
permanent damage.
As to removing, I remember back when I was using Rainbow henna there
was something about using a mineral oil soak to remove it from hair.
Never tried it, and honestly I'm not sure it would work, but that's
all I can think of.
Just don't overdye it with commercial dye without doing a test on
your hairbrush leavings or you may have permanent green color!
Please let us know if you find something that works.
