Just this week I heard of someone who suddenly became allergic to PPD and had a huge reaction.

I stopped using brown hair color two years ago for the same reason--I was scared :sad11:. I use henna...

The henna will go right over the top of your natural hair color. With medium or dark brown it probably won't show much, except as a red sheen in sunlight. Speaking from experience, here :icon_smile:...

Sounds like you need a hairdresser you can trust

Since your hair has been through a lot, you could get unpredictable results with almost anything. Maybe talk to people whose hair you admire (even strangers) and ask them who they go to? Once you...

I am still doing this

And it works better each time and lasts longer. I now leave the henna on for 3 hours and the indigo for 1 hour and 15 mins. It's a very dark ash brown. I can see how you could get black, even a blue...

Indigo

Indigo is a natural color, that when used over henna makes a black that is as permanent as you can probably get. It will fade over time (in my experience), but not as badly as chemical color does. If...

It's all about what works best for you

I am not CG as that doesn't work on my hair. It gets limp and greasy and isn't any more curly than if I use a very moisturising shampoo and conditioner. If CG is working for you then maybe you just...

I think the straw like feeling is because henna opens up the cuticle to deposit the color inside the hair shaft. (At least I think that's how it works). I've foudn that rinsing with loads of...

Thanks Kayrae. I wonder why so many websites say it will be black and permanent! Weird. Still, it does look good and doesn't fade any worse than dark brown chemical color (which also fades and leaves...

I am still experimenting with this

On my third attempt I used henna for 3 hours and the indigo for 1 hour. As always I got a really nice dark ash brown and it's still looking good after 3 washes. I'm not sure I believe I could really...

Thanks for the ideas

I haven't tried Amla, but I've read about it over the years. Maybe I'll give it a shot. Does it fade out, or does it make the henna bond to the strand in a different colour? I notice that henna never...

It's already faded a bit

And has a reddish tone. Then again, I didn't leave the indigo on long at all. Next time I might be braver and leave it on longer. The results are still darker than when I applied the henna and indigo...

Could it also be build up?

Of product, oils, etc on hair. That can cause similar problems.

Revlon has a highlightling kit

called Frost and Glow and there's one for dark hair. It actually works pretty well. There's a cap that you pull strands through to highlight. That might be a good way to dip your feet in the world of...

Hopefully it's just a two year old tantrum type phase and she'll grow out of it. I don't think dry shampoo works on any type of hair--I remember my mom trying it out--mmmm, greasy hair with powder on...

I love his curls

And I like the first pic better :p You could smooth a teeny bit of coconut oil over it with your palms to give it a more "conditioned" look. My hair gets greasy with the CG method so I shampoo...

We always used the adult ones

Since they're very adjustable. You could trim the strings shorter if they seem dangerously long.

And it worked out great. I left the henna in for 3 hours, and the indigo for about 15 minutes. I got a really nice dark ash brown and it covered my gray well. If it doesn't fade this will be my new...

Question 2 step henna + indigo--anyone done this?

Hello,

I used henna and indigo mixed 50/50 for a long time to cover gray in my very dark brown hair, but it bothered me that the indigo faded quickly and my hair ended up very red. The color was...

gray in dk brown

The problem with dark brown hair is that once you start coloring it, even a darker color, it will get lighter as the color fades. I know this from harsh personal experience :confused1: My hair has a...

You'll figure it out

If you just keep reading and experimenting. I found the most helpful thing was to look for hair that looks similar to yours and try those people's routines. Everyone's hair is different so some...

Sounds like the top layer is dry

The curly girl method of washing with conditioner instead of shampoo might help, and leaving in a conditioner instead of washing it out could be good, too. Herbal Essences has some very moisturizing...

She has gorgeous hair

But I guess it's hard to have Large-And-In-Charge hair when you have a retiring personality! I don't see any problem with letting her keep it in braids until she grows into it. You could experiment...

She's adorable

There's a book called "It's All Good Hair" by Michelle N K Collison that I found really helpful at that age. It has detailed instructions on how to do different braid and twist styles. It's well...

Glycerine

When my DD was little I used to fill a spray bottle with glycerine and use that on her curls. It attracts moisture from the air and made them curl up nicely. (Though if you live in a really dry...
