I would condition first and then apply the henna

If you have stripped your hair and removed all the hair color in your hair it is best to wait about a week before applying the henna to your hair. You should make sure you use a lot of conditioniers on your hair to make it healthy before applying the henna.

Are you asking when to use henna if you bleached the color out of your hair? Most stylists say wait 1-2 weeks, but it depends on your hair health in the first place. If you hair is at all brittle you may need to wait longer--up to 4 weeks.

Also, be sure to do a strand test with henna to make sure you get what you want. Even though henna is supposed to be safer than dyes, it is still a treatment and you want to get it right the first time.

Yes, you can. But, unless there is some reason you can't use regular hair color, I don't see any advantage of using henna. I do see a lot of disadvantages. And too, there's no such thing as black henna. A product with that name probably contains indigo dye along with the henna to produce the black shade.

Henna is called a 'progressive' dye. It may take several applications to produce the desired results. Applying henna can be very messy.

Henna is more likely to stain the skin and is used in some cultures to dye the hands. Google 'Hands dyed with henna' and you will see what I mean.

Henna does not penetrate the hair shaft as do regular oxidizing colors. Instead, it coats the top layer of the hair shaft. This coating can make any other hair treatment such as perms or color changes very difficult. Also, henna is difficult to remove.

This latter disadvantage is why I never used henna. If you do choose to use it, it is important that you do a strand test first.

One more thought. Regardless of how shiny hair looks in ads for henna, you wont get those results. As it coats the hair rather than penetrating it. natural translucency is lost.
