    Henna leaves a reddish tint.  It is used by many people instead of a red hair dye.  I wouldn't think it would suit African American hair; but, it would be up to user.

    I would definitely pay close attention to the henna product that you want to use as many of them contain metallic ingredients and if you also relax your hair it can be a disaster. Just make sure the products you are using coincide with one another. Hope that helps.

    No, henna is just covering and leaves the hair sort of sticky feeling.  Consider seeking a salon professional that uses Organic Color Systems as this works wonderfully on ethnic hair.  I have posted a video specifically about coloring ethnic hair at this hub http://hubpages.com/hub/Professional-Hair-Color
