Natural hair dye henna

Our Henna-Based Hair Dyes Are Your Best Choice: Award-winning herbs are freshly harvested, milled, & sealed—remain rich & potent. Botanicals nourish longer. Pigments saturate deeper.

Always wearing plastic gloves, apply the indigo to your previously hennaed hair. I have my indigo ready to use immediately following rinsing the henna from my hair in a back to back process. You can do it this way or wait and apply your indigo later. Apply the indigo to your hair making sure to cover hair from roots to ends. Separating our hair into smaller sections will aid in this. When your hair is covered with the indigo, cover your hair with a plastic cap. Then cover with a towel or scarf. Allow the indigo to remain on your hair until desired color is achieved. Performing a harvested hair test will help you determine how long this will take.

Apply it to your dry hair and ma ke sure you cover all of it, from root to end. Cover your head with plastic wrap and leave it for 30 minutes

These are natural colors and as such will create natural hues on your hair. They will not create artificial colors like hot pink, completely platinum blonde, or jet black (ok, so that isn’t a fake color, I just haven’t figured out how to do it…) The blonde/light recipes will actually permanently lighten hair since they naturally bleach it but the red and dark hues will leave a temporary tint for a few weeks (depending on how often you wash it). The sun will help set all the hues.

Below are photographs of natural hair strands showing how they colour with henna, and how they intensify to darker shades after the indigo application. I'm afraid the photos don't do justice at all to the final end result colour - scroll down to the real life photos see what I mean. Also, please bear in mind that the henna used for these strand tests was mixed with part lemon juice and part water and therefore the henna colour is lighter than it would have been with a straight hot water mix.

Who decides that men look distinguished with grey hair and women don't? This article just seems to validate that stereotype by saying that women "don't have the luxury" of being able to get away with grey hair. You could easily have presented natural hair color options without making assumptions about why someone would want or "need" to use color, that's an unnecessary angle.

Factors affecting the colour result of a natural hair dye
Different hair structure and chemistry such as acidity levels in your hair effect the resulting colour.  For example some peoples hair goes coppery more easily than others. So one particular colour is not the same on everyone.
 
Because natural hair dyes are semi-transparent the colour you have underneath is going a show through to some extent. For example if your hair is bright red and you apply a brown colour on top of it - some of the red is still going to show through on the first application. Or if your hair is white or blonde and you put a dark colour on top of it may not immediately go dark. If you have stripes of grey the grey may still be a lighter colour. (Also grey hair has a unique structure which renders the colour differently to your none grey hair). Colouring your hair 2 or 3 times allowing at least 12 hours between each application will strengthen the colour.

All hair is different and may take longer to soak up color or maybe no time at all. Some hair grows faster while others just plug along slowly. Some colors of hair react differently to different colors. Here’s a list of herbs that work best for each hair color type.

The most beautiful thing we possess is our body and soul. Our body requires regular care and maintenance to keep looking healthy and beautiful. We all have to live through some ailments and other health problems from time to time. However, nature has created a remedy contained within in plants and herbs -for every health problem. Whether it's fresh produce, dried herbs, essential oils or extracts: the key to beautiful health is using pure botanical rich ingredients derived from nature.

I had heard great things about Lush’s henna line , so while on a vacation in Palm Springs, my good friend and I decided to have a little hair-dying party in our hotel room– where no one could see us make fools of ourselves!
