Just so you know I've no problem with gingery people at all, infact i'd love to have natural red hair and I'm sure my mother still holds it against me that I wasn't born with our family's giner gene...

A little while back In my second year at uni a mate was throwing a good old fancy dress party and one of my housemates decided he wanted to go as the scarlet Peter Pan.

All fine and well, costume was fabricated complete with shorts covered in red leaves etc and far too much of him on display for most of our liking. Wanting proper red hair I (foolishly...deviously..) advise him to use henna. Hell i've never had a problem with it, we even followed the shop's advice on colour.

So I henna-fied the boy, suggested wrapping it in cling film overnight to intensify the colour and washing it out the next day just as I do. Sadly for poor, once blonde Olly this condemmed him to about six months of bright moreorangethananorangething hair until his girlfriend ordered him to get it cut off.

I'll never forget waking up to "err...is it meant to be this colour?" and secretly pissing myself laughing while attempting to reassure him. Ha! Serves him right!

I nearly became homeless because of henna
I kid you not.
The landlords wife of the house my flat was in used to turn up out of the blue to inspect the place, check out the shared kitchen and bathroom etc.
That morning i had hennaed (SP?) my hair, and wrapped it in an old towel.
That crusty red stained towel was draped over the bath.
She went ballistic, shouted it was disgusting to see that in a bathroom men also use, and the likes of me werent welcome.
I sussed she was thinking it was something else and played the bemused innocent ;)
After a while I said , whats so bad about red hair dye?
You could see the cogs whirring as she realised.
Then she blustered, well its disgusting and flounced out.
I guess she couldnt cope with the idea someone would actually want red hair ;)
