I just wanted to clear something up, since I see a lot of people seem to confuse body art quality henna for compound henna. A lot of box henna for hair dyes you might find at the store are compound hennas, meaning they contain added chemicals or metallic salts. Their labels will often say “brown henna”, “blonde henna” or “black henna.” These are not pure henna!
Pure, body art quality henna has only one color dye, red-orange, that will show up differently on different hair. Body art quality means it is the henna powder used for henna tattoos, which is the finest sift higher quality henna, with no added compounds. THIS is what you want to use on your hair.
A lot of people, even hair stylists, will tell you that if you use henna, then you cannot use chemical dyes, or do perms on your hair. This is only true if you use compound henna dyes. If you use body art quality henna then you are safe to treat your hair chemically!
If you are unsure whether you have used pure natural henna or compound henna, then just harvest a sample of hair from your hair brush and test the chemical dye on it to see if anything weird happens.
I hope this clears some things up, as many people seem to be afraid of henna for this very reason! Good luck everyone and happy hennaing!
