Henna and oVertone

We couldn't believe our luck when we got a quick email request from friend and Tribal Fusion dancer Sophia Ravenna offering up her hair for some oVertone testing.

As you can see, Sophia's hair is LONG.  Very long.  She's been using Henna (Lush's Caca Rouge) since approximately 2011, and estimates that her ends have been henna'd approximately six times at least.  She was curious to see what oVertone could do for her ends, and we were eager to see as well!

We decided to test two colors - Extreme Pink Go Deep and Vibrant Orange Go Deep.  We split up about 6 inches of her ends into two parts, and applied!

Sophia's ends LOVED the oVertone.  The Vibrant Orange added a punch of color to her coppery strands that made her hair look fresh and happy, and the Extreme Pink gave it a lovely sunset-y tone.  Together, they gave her a look that we dubbed "Raspberry Sunset".

Here's what Sophia said about her experience with oVertone:

"I totally went into this expecting that it wouldn't work at all and would just leave my ends looking weird. When we rinsed my hair out and saw the gleaming orange and raspberry highlights I got really excited! Turns out henna and fantasy hair colors aren't mutually exclusive. I'm looking forward to showing off a full head of raspberry sunset hair at my next bellydance performance!"

Henna Heads everywhere rejoice!  oVertone is for you, too.  What color combos are you mixing on your head?  Let us know in the comments!
