Does red henna work on dark brown hair?
Like all hair dyes, henna shows up differently on different shades of hair. If you have blond hair, it’ll show up as a vibrant red. If you, like me, have dark brown hair, the effect is more subtle — more of a rinse or highlight than pure color. This allows plenty of time for the dye to release.
Can you mix henna with just water?
Low pH (acidic) mixes are rich in hydrogens, which keep aglycones relatively stable until it is time to use the dye. Mixing henna without an acid (such as using only water) will cause the paste to have a weaker dye release which demises faster.
What can I mix in henna for GREY hair?

Can you dye your hair to look like a natural redhead?
