I've been ginger since the beginning of September courtesy Adore Cajun Spice mixed with Adore Sienna Brown.  I love it so much that I've decided I want to keep it on a more permanent basis.  I took the henna plunge, and I am so very chuffed with the result!!!

This is LUSH Caca Rouge over my bleached hair.  I didn't fade the Adore dyes at all, I just plonked the muddy mess right over top.  I mixed it with boiling water in a bain marie, applied it with a tint brush and wrapped my head in cling film.  I wore a beanie over the cling film to keep the henna warm (I read this was better for more red colour development).  I left it on for about 3.5 hours before I couldn't stand the mud leaking down the back of my neck.  The smell of LUSH's henna wasn't completely off-putting, but I did start to get a little bit of headache after this amount of time.  Of note, I am typically sensitive to any strong smells anyway.  After I rinsed, the colour was quite a bit lighter than my Adore dyes started out... but after the course of four days, the henna developed into this rich ginger.  :)

I am torn on whether or not to continue bleaching my roots, or to let my natural brown come in and henna over top of that.  I am so in love with the ginger that I'm afraid I'll be sad if it's too dark... I need to think about my roots soon... so I'll see once in a few weeks how I'm feeling on it.

Thanks for letting me share!  :D

Ginger suits you very well :)
Always remember to consider what your hair is going to feel like after processing it BEFORE you do it! Test strands, treatments/oils are important when it comes to hair, but the most important thing is patience!

That's lovely. I might be tempted to use Henna when I've got a decent base, but I'm afraid of how permanent it is! It's so pretty though.

Cheers for the lovely replies!  :)

I don't think I'll have trouble with boredom since I was bright red for nearly 10 months before I started changing up my colour.  If I was one to bore easily or fancied a change often, I wouldn't be as tempted by the henna.
