Real People, Real Henna: "Elaine"

Elaine's gray hair, after several henna treatments

I am a big chicken when it comes to things like this. I have developed problems with contact allergies in my "older" age and have been afraid to use hair coloring of any type. Your informative site answered all my questions and allayed all my fears.

This is after my 3rd henna treatment. These pics were taken the same day after I washed it all out. I used the following recipe:
100 grams of henna powder and a mildly acidic liquid mix.

Don’t have fruit juice on hand? Keep some fruit acid powders in your cupboard.
