    I have been applying henna to my hair since I was 18 for conditioning. Now I have a few grey hair which I hide using henna. Till now used to keep henna in hair for 4 hrs. But I read somewhere that if you keep it for 8 hrs it is better. Since last 3-4 times I have been keeping for 8 hrs without any hassle.
    Experienced ladies pls hlp, will this have any long term side effects like drying out of hair etc. Also how muich time should I keep on henna in hair.

    Hello,

    Longer you keep henna, darker the red coloring.

    If you leave it for 1 to 2 hours, you get the orange red and as you keep longer for 6 to 8 hours you get auburn shade. So if you are comfortable keeping for 8 hours, that would be idle.
