I know henna is permanent. I wish I could do henna on my roots and highlights, but I know they don't mix. Maybe your grays weren't noticeable because you have lighter brown hair, but with my black, they do! You're lucky that you didn't get many for that long. I've had them for only four years and I keep getting new ones every once in a while, so you were lucky to stay with a small amount for so long. I wish mine would take a break and quit bringing new ones on for a year or two.

You do realize henna is red and permanent?

I was 30ish when I got my first greys, but no one else noticed unless I pointed them out (hint, hint ) I'm now 56 and it's only in the past decade that they became enough to do anything about them. Now I just do henna glosses - makes my greys look like reddish gold highlights and deposits little color on my natural color, which is a warm chestnut brown already.
