I put black manic panic over my hennaed hair. It's now black that
reflects a beautiful red. Love it!

M

: Henna is an acid and chemical dyes are bases. Remember the
: elementary science class where you made the volcano from baking
soda
: and vinegar? You don't want that happening to your hair. However
: awful the henna color is, it's better than the sewage-green to
black
: you'd get, unless it just falls out.
: Some other options are to redye with a darker henna mixed with
coffee
: to darken it further. The more you henna hair, the darker (less
: neon) it gets. You could also try an acid dye like Manic Panic.
: It's temprorary and I don't know if it comes in normal hair
colors,
: but it would cover the henna color.
: In a few months, try some chemical color on the hair from your
: hairbrush to see if the acid level has gone down enough to make it
: safe.
