Henna is the oldest haircolor known to man. It was used extensively in ancient Egyptian times,but there are some long term effects that you should think about before using! Henna can improve the appearence of your hair(make it shiny and color it. However it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to completly remove from your hair once it has been used on it except for cutting all affected hair off! It also prevents any other chemical services (ie perms other colorings to be performed) on your hair EVER, until it is cut off. There are many good products on the market that will do as good of a job coloring your hair, such as Redken Shades EQ and do not have any restrictions on your hair styling plans for your hair, now or in the future. Shades has a wonderful color selection and can be intermixed to customize a color for any application and with the use of "Shades Above" gentle one step lightening can be achieved on most colors. william

A friend of mine uses henna too and I do agree it is permanent. But she seems to be able to straighten and perm her hair several times a year with no problem with the henna on.

One should think carefully before using any permanent color for that reason.> It also prevents any other chemical services (ie perms> other colorings to be performed) on your hair EVER,> until it is cut off.Really? I hadn't heard this. I've certainly done other permanent colors (including double process bleaching) over henna on my hair and not had problems.-jennifer j
