    Nah, in all seriousness... I have ginger hair and I was thinking of using henna to make it a bit redder... Over the years my hair has had blonde highlights, brown streaks and dyed brown fully, so it's a bit gruffy looking... Especially at the front of my head (where my fringe would be, if I had one lol) you can see there are lighter streaks where the blonde used to be, even though it was literally lke 6 or so years ago that I got them!!

    The dying my hair brown was a bit of a disaster... The first time I didn't use enough dye because my hair is sooo thick, so there was random ginger streaks still in! Then I got it done again for my formal, had to use 2 packs of dye (got it done at the hairdressers to avoid dodgyness!) and it went realllllly dark. So then when it started to grow out it looks ridiculous. This was last year and it's only gotten back to the original red colour now!! :eek3:

    So, I thought, chemical dye is a bit harsh on it. Then I saw henna on the lush website!

    So has anyone ever used it? How long does the colour last, and is the colour as harsh as chemical dye?? I just want my hair to be slightly 'redder' , not completely fire truck red, and I'm afraid if I use chemical dye it might be too strong a colour!

    Any advice or comments would be brilliant, thanks
