how to use oVertone

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 at least six times. 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 Deep Treatment and Vibrant Orange Deep Treatment. 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 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!”

And Sophia isn’t the only one who has used oVertone over henna with success:

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

    How long would purple for brown hair last over auburn henna?

  • Alee says:

    Hey Gwen! Thank you for your patience. As soon as you stop using our conditioners, your color will start to fade. How long it takes to completely fade out depends on a few things like the health and natural texture of your hair, how often you wash it, how much time you spend outside, etc. but most clients find that a single use lasts about as long as a semi-permanent color would.
