Hennaed hair

I am 36 with a toddler and pg again. My hair was blonde until a couple of years ago and now it's mousey.

Aibu to henna it? It just seems such a cliche. I don't want to use permanent dyes for health and pg reasons, also my hair is already quite dry and dyeing won't make that any better. Whatever I do it's got to be something I can do at home. Feel like I might get banned from S&B for this but my husband cuts it.

the 'problem' with henna is that you are limited in your colours. but if you want some red or brown then henna is fab. I have been using it for ages. it is also a brilliant conditioner.

I would stay away from lush henna but get some good quality henna powder (I tend to get it from hennaboy).

Henna is lovely, just remember you will have to grow it out.

Isn't it a bit cliched mid 30s thing to do though?

Thanks for the henna boy tip I might get my mum to be my guinea pig, she has shorter hair..
