    I've read lots of things and been told by lots of people that you need to leave henna on for several hours in order to have an effect. But I bought some henna today and it says to leave it on for only an hour...

    Should I stick to what the packet says or leave it on for longer? I'm pretty sure it's real henna and I don't want to take it off too soon and end up with the same colour hair I started with. Can anyone help please?

    Have you put the henna on your skin or hair?

    If you've put it on your skin, leave it on until it becomes dry and crumbly and starts falling off itself. Then if you want it darker still, sprinkle some water over the henna to dampen it.

    If you've put it on your hair follow the instructions on the packet. Henna usually continues to get darker even after having taken it off.
