Covering white hair is always a sore point so since I'm also talking about it in the video, I invite you to read the dedicated article: Why doesn't henna cover white hair? Here's what you're doing wrong!

One last piece of advice that I happen to give more and more via email concerns the coverage of gray hair found on the temples, sideburns and forehead. White hair visibly less porous and thicker than other white hair that has difficulty coloring either because due to the position where it is difficult to find the batter remains moist, or because it is more color resistant. But there is a trick that WORKS!

Try using pads on the temples and forehead where the batter is likely to dry out Of cotton (that the ones used to remove make-up are fine!) moistened. On pp place them under the shower cap / film on the forehead / temples where you have noticed that your white hair is struggling to color. The cotton pads help keep the area moist, promoting color release. Try it and let me know! ;)

And since green hair dreads run high, here's what not to do if you don't want to end up with weird highlights in your hair!

And in case you missed it, I leave you the link to the INDEX of the blog where you will find a list of all the topics covered and which, after careful reading and study, will allow you to make a conscious use of henna and herbal dyeing and more.
