LMAO i was in the same position as u a few years ago, sorry to break it to ya but henna wont do anything to black hair esp if ur using a brown henna. i used a vatika red henna hoping for it to somewhat show up and people only noticed it in the sunlight it would look red but that's about it :/

Hi I would not recommend as it turns the hair ginger and looks horrible on Asians with black hair. Being an Asian ginger is a very strange look!

Nope, it'll only show up on white hair or lighter colours.
It'll just bleed out everywhere every time you have a shower and dirty your towels.
If you want dye your hair generally, you'd have to bleach it (not household bleach, just FYI) and then dye it.
And as someone else said, it comes out orange.

Hi! Where I’m from we use henna and to get rideof the bright orange ginger colour we use Wusme. Now I have no way to translate it for you, but when you use henna you should have another product to darken the orange colour and make it look pretty. That’s why henna shouldn’t be used on its own.
