How fast does henna fade?

I've been wanting to dye my hair red for a while, and I think I'm going to go with henna regardless because peroxide does a number on my hair. That said, does it tend to last longer, shorter, or about the same as regular hair dye?

    It doesn't fade, it's very permanent. However, I've found mine has become a tad lighter in the sun, because it allows your natural highlights to come through.

    Keep in mind this is Body Art Quality henna I am talking about. BAQ henna is the only henna you should use on your hair.

    Oh wow, that's great to hear! My hair is already naturally kind of red, I just want it to be a more intense shade of red.
