Real People, Real Henna: "Kim"
Kim's gray hair covered with a henna and indigo mix
This is a picture of my gray roots after my second, half henna and half indigo. This is just what I wanted, a cool brownish-red!
On the darker parts of my hair I got a dark auburn / dark ash brown depending on the lighting. On the gray roots I have streaks of a light copper/brown color.
