: My aunt has tried it and it does work to highlight black hair. It
: a little subtle but it will work. Also you might try adding a
: tea tree essential oil into the henna paste mixture and do multiple
: applications of henna for it to really take.

You can also try using a less red shade of henna packaged for hair
first to help deepen the color so it won't look orange. Unlike skin,
the color will not get darker after a couple of days. I had to do
something like that when I found a source of henna again after
resorting to chemicals. I did test first, so I knew I wasn't going
to get green hair. The chemically dyed hair was lighter than my own
color so I darkened it first with brown henna and then applied high
quality straight henna over the top. It looked much more even that
way! A double process is sometimes recommended for light or grey
hair to avoid the pumpkin color.

Another thing about henna on hair - it's supposed to fade so you
don't see roots growing in. That may be true on some people but I
can definitely see MY roots growing in. It doesn't fade much on me.
