You cannot fully remove henna, but don't worry - it will fade over time. However, blonde and very light hair types might still have a dark gold tone. In the meantime, the best way to try to lift Henna color is with a homemade, overnight oil treatment.
Try Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, or Argan Oil.
- Start by creating the oil treatment. Mix enough oil so that you have an ample amount to cover all of your hair, with a bit left over for touch ups.
- When you have the right amount, apply the oil to your hair from root to tip. When your entire head of hair is covered, we recommend that you leave the oil treatment in overnight using a protective towel to cover your pillow.
- In the morning, to remove the oil treatment, first thoroughly saturate hair with an undiluted MM Shampoo and massage in well.
(Since oil and water do not mix, wetting your hair first would require more shampoo). Rinse. Shampoo normally.
This process will cause the color to fade. Multiple applications may be necessary. The number of applications varies from client to client depending on individual hair type, color, and length of time henna is in your hair. And for some, Henna is very sticky and will not fade well.

A note on green hair: This simply means that the indigo has not been washed out completely
