Video: Trying to lighten my henna’d hair

I love hair colour. Been addicted ever since I left high school and started processing my head. It’s mostly been some shade of blonde, I’ve never really liked red, wasn’t bright enough and trying to get it bright started to look clownish to me.

I decided to try red while my hair was short to see if I’d like it and you’ve seen the results if you’ve been following my hair story. Not enough impact so I decided to try and lighten my hair first and then henna over it again to get that bright red henna result. Hopefully.

The problem is that henna stays on your hair. It grows out, it doesn’t wash out or anything. I should have just gone to my stylist and allowed her to bleach my hair but nooooooooo miss DIY that I have become I’ve been applying box colour to my hair and I haven’t been getting the best results. Watch the video below…

So what direction do you think I should go? Sigh…
