From what I've learned about henna, black henna isn't really even henna; it's actually indigo. That being said, don't bleach, or it can turn your hair green!
Someone mentioned using L'Oreal Effasol Color Remover to get it out, but that sounds pretty unsafe. The first henna I tried suggested using mineral oil to get it out.
However, both of those do sound kind of unhealthy for your hair. Luckily, I don't think henna/indigo is permanent, but I may be wrong. You could use honey and lemon juice because those are both known for their lightening qualities. How to Use Lemon Juice to Lighten Hair: 10 steps - wikiHow
