Now I would like to go to the hairdresser to get some highlights (blond streaks) in my hair. Is it safe to apply highlights on old hennad hair, or will it turn green? I've heard that Lush henna is safe to use with chemical dyes, but since the caca brun had indigo in it?

Some henna blends contain metal salts that don't react well with peroxide in box dyes/ persulphate bleach.Best thing to do is run strand tests with shed plughole hair at the same time as the patch test is done.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG, growing out mechanical and chemical damage = breakage and very high porosity. Past armpit length heading for waist.
