I don't know much about the Body Shop's products but I can tell
you that henna is a transparent coloring, so light colored hair will
go orange, where as dark hair will have a kind of sheen of color
when the sun hits it. I wouldn't suggest using chemical dyes
over it unless you want hair to match your green eyes!

Henna does fade after repeated washings so you can try that.
The grey will still be orange but not quite as vivid. The other
option is to repeatedly henna your hair to get a darker shade. I
suggest that you use henna that is used for body art as this will
give you better color and will likely darken your hair in fewer
applications. This, again, will take a bit of time, maybe a week or
so of repeated applications.

good luck! and just think, maybe your daughter will think that you
are the coolest person ever!
