What is Henna?
Henna is a plant native to the Middle East that has been used to decorate the hair and body for thousands of years. Lush Henna blends the finest Persian henna with Fair Trade cocoa butter and ingredients like indigo herb and fresh organic lemon juice to create bricks of organic hair dye. They’re simple to use and give wonderful, lustrous color.
There are a few things that are a must when choosing any henna powder:
- Fresh– You must always buy fresh henna powder. If you want a great stain, don’t just grab henna off the shelf.
- Body Art Quality-This means that the henna powder is the best quality since they take the leaves from the top of the plant with the most dye content. It also means that it is 100% pure and natural.
- Finely Sifted– None of that dirt, grit, sand, nor sticks help with getting a great staining henna paste.
- Pure- Must contain no pesticides or chemicals. No PPD nor any other powders or ingredients. Only get 100% pure henna powder.
How do you use Henna?
Applying henna can get a little messy, so getting a friend to give you a hand is, well, pretty handy (but going solo is fine too).
Henna is an efficient and long lasting natural hair dye.
What effect will henna have on very curly or afro hair?
The overall result will depend on your hair colour and how thoroughly you apply your henna: curly or afro hair may need more henna and more time, depending on the length. Curly hair drinks up henna much more quickly than straight hair because the kinks open the cuticle slightly, meaning it tends to be more thirsty. Adding a little more water to your henna makes application easier; if you have straight hair, stick to a thicker henna mixture as this will adhere to hair more easily.
Does henna cover grey hair?
Using henna on grey hair should be approached in a similar way to colouring blonde hair. This is because ‘grey’ hair is an impression made of a mix of hair that contains no colour and coloured hair.
