Plus, my hair got a little dryer because of the red dye, so now it's finally getting better. Dilemna : trying black henna or not. Why black henna? Apparently, it's not a dye it's natural so it doesn't f*** up my hair.
What do you guys think ?

Henna is GREAT for your hair, in general, it's very conditioning. The only issue here is that you can't use it on hair that's already been chemically processed with other dyes, until it grows out and you cut off the dyed part. I'm not sure exactly what it does, but I've always read that it's a really bad idea to use it on processed hair. The coloring I mean. I still use other non-coloring henna products on my hair to keep it healthy. If you do use it, you need body art quality henna specifically, to use on processed hair. Certain henna colors you buy have metallic compounds that react with the chemicals in regular hair dye, and will f.uck up your hair big time. Body art quality henna doesn't have those additives, so you can avoid that problem. Also, there's no such thing as real black henna. Those are made with indigo, and you'll likely have the same issue with metallic compounds. But I'm sure there's some kind of indigo you can buy that is pure, and will give you the color you want without the nasty side effects of chemical reactions, lol, I just couldn't tell you where to find it.
