    Henna in Hair: Any bad reactions to chlorine?

    Does anyone here dye their hair with henna and more importantly, had the henna react to chlorinated pool water? I’m thinking about trying some henna on my hair and wanted to know if others have had success or bad luck with hair coloring with henna. From what I can find online, the hair color seems to react to the chlorine only if there are mineral salts or other chemicals in the henna so if one purchases a good brand of henna with no other additives, it should be safe in the pool. Can anyone else weigh in on this?

    I can. I have been using red henna from Lush for years and have been in salt, fresh, and chlorine water with no color change. I'm careful to rinse or wash my hair after swimming and I'm sure that helps lol
