"Henna" powder is a natural alternative to chemical hair tints. It comes from the leaves of a North African shrub.
How it works: Henna covers each strand of hair. The shade of Henna is reflected through the hair while enhancing your hair's natural color. Henna is also a wonderful natural conditioner, the cuticle is smoothed by Henna's sealing action, giving hair a healthy glow look. Because the cuticle is tight and flattened, the hair is protected from atmospheric conditions such as sun damage. Regular use of Henna will add texture to your hair, giving it more body ... and the longer you use it on your hair, the more evident the changes will be.
You may apply Henna every 4-6 weeks. Because the color blends so naturally and fades gradually, there is never a noticeable regrowth area. The color will last approximately 4 - 6 weeks.
How to choose which type of Henna to use: Select your natural hair color below to see what this type of Henna will do for your hair.
