: I have been a hairstylist myself since 1989, but henna is one of
: things that we never touched on in school, or any place I have
: at since school.

Are you in the US? Perhaps henna use on hair isn't as prevalent in
North America as it is in some other places so it wasn't deemed
necessary to include since relatively few people asked for it. I
should also rephrase my comment about most North American stylists
saying not to use henna over a perm. That was much too broad. What
I SHOULD have said is all of the North American hairstylists that I
have discussed henna with have said not to use it. Only one of
those hairstylists has been American, all of the others were in
Canada and they all had a negative opinion about henna, although
most didn't say they'd had direct experience with it.

I prefer to do the cuts and perms though and leave
: the coloring to the other stylists. Had a bad experience in
: School when the instructor gave me a formula to do a lady's hair
: ash blonde. Wellll, I questioned whether or not I should do a
: neutral blonde, but the instructor insisted on ash because the
: did not want any warm highlights to it at all. - Welll, now I can
: say I know what frog-butt green looks like on hair - blech!

Poor woman. I can really sympathize with her. I used a henna
hairspray over a chemical hair color when I was in my late teens or
early twenties and very gradually my hair turned green.
