I believe she did. I recall several episodes in the "I Love Lucy" series where it is mentioned, by other cast members and Lucy herself. Henna is just a fancy word for hair dye.

Is henna bad for your hair?

No, real henna is not bad for your hair. But be careful, henna only comes in one color - reddish orange. If the product claims to dye your hair any other color, it's not pure henna - so read what else is in there. And avoid black henna at any cost. It's not henna at all, but a very nasty chemical that can be toxic. But if you want to dye your hair in the salon it can be bad. Henna contains metallic salts that react with other hair dyes. If you went to the salon and failed to mention that you use henna colours and the stylist put an ordinary colour on your hair the hair would be destroyed so don't forget to mention it in the salon.

What does henna do to your hair?

Henna is a great conditioner for hair, it does dye your hair, so you need to make sure it will be about the colour you`re looking for. You can use henna only or henna mixed with Indigo to achieve the tone you want. Henna alone on light hair can be orangey red on black hair you will get a red "halo" effect. Always test your henna mix on a couple of hairs that you took out of your comb or test it on a small strandd first. Check the web or ask your local henna artist for a henna hair recipe. Depending on your starting colour, you can get almost any tone from a bright red to even black (with Henna and Indigo in a two step process).
