I need help getting henna to work as a hair color. I went to a salon recommended on these pages (Elixer) and had henna applied. It looked good, but I can't afford to go there regularly. (It was $180 for cut and color, which I'm sure is reasonable, I just don't have the money.) The stylist wouldn't share information on the source of her henna. Then I tried it at home, with a product called ''Mountain Naturals'' (I think) from Whole Foods, purchased for about $5. Purportedly pure henna, nothing added. I followed the same procedure as the salon (hot coffee, wait an hour) but I don't have a hot hood to bake my head in for the hour, so I couldn't keep it as hot. The color was much weaker and ineffectual. Do I have to give in to gray, or can someone point me to the magic product? Thanks washed out
I am looking for a hairstylist who can apply henna to cover my grey hair. (I'm allergic to chemical dyes.) Preferably, this person would be in North Berkeley/Albany/El Cerrito, and would not charge an arm and a leg. Thank you very much.

Why not do it yourself? Here are some resources:
