Which kind of hair dye should I use?

Would you do Naturtint or henna? I have never died my blonde and white long wavy, healthy, happy hair. The problem is, I'm tired of my face being framed in white, while the backside is honey gold. I'd like to get some of the gold back in front again. But the question is how?

With henna, it seems like you've got to have a degree in chemistry to approximate blonde. You add a little cassia, a dash of amla, a teaspoon of indigo, maybe yogurt, lemon, chamomile and whatever the heck else in mix 'n match proportions to achieve, in the end, a dubious or lustrously beautiful but always unpredictable result. And yet, henna devotees seem to love the effort and result. My only problem is trying to figure out how to replicate a henna elixer to touch up those fast-growing roots.
With Naturtint, which people seem to love, you've got a chemical product that proclaims to be natural that's permanent. By permanent, I guess this means you're stuck with the color whether you like it or not. The only way to get back to your real hair again is to grow it out and cut off the died ends.
With Naturtint I'm afraid of committing to a permanent hair color. With henna, I'm afraid of being able to match my roots to the rest of my hair when it comes time to touch up.
I'm wondering what experiences other ladies have had. Would those of you who have experienced either product please weigh in with opinions and likes/dislikes? I have read through the previous posts on the subject. I still want fresh opinions.
