Anyway to get to the point, I'd been mixing Chestnut and Blonde self-mix henna dye the last few times to make my grays more golden blonde. It was looking good, but towards the ends of my hair it was pretty red from using straight red henna self-mix (the Candy Apple). I do love the red, but when you want a change...hmmm.
So tonight I mixed 1/2 cup of Blonde and 3 heaping teaspoons of Brunette (gasp!) into another 1/2 cup container and filled that with Chestnut. I put it on all my hair, let it sit an hour or so and rinsed. I used the Brunette because of its high indigo content, to tone down the red. I worried a little bit that it might make it a lot darker but hey, hair grows, right?
Success! My base color is a great light brown with blonde highlights. I tried to snap a pic of it but my camera needed the flash indoors and on fresh henna about all you can see is shine!
