Henna tends to stain your hair orange-red! So unless you have dark hair, using Henna will leave your hair stained. On the other hand, if you have dark hair – brunette, black or brown, you will have orange-red tints that will shine bright when you head out. If you have lighter hair, opt for other remedies that won’t stain your hair.
