Natural henna colours the hair in reddish hues, depending on the initial hair colour and the exact recipe used. Combined with other herbs such as indigo and amla, you can achieve brown and black, or with cassia for just a slight tint and slight warming of the hair colour. Apart from hair colouring, natural henna has strengthening and conditioning properties; will leave hair shiny and voluminous.

Recipe 1: Basic recipe for intense colour - henna is mixed with warm water to achieve paste-like consistency; cover and leave for dye release (between 2-12 hours). Divide hair into sections and apply the mixture evenly and throughout the hair; cover with plastic wrap and towel, and leave on between 2-8 hours. Rinse well with water.
For faster dye release, as well as to achieve cooler colour and less reddish hue in henna-indigo mixture, add 2-3 tbsp to henna. For more information on hair colouring with henna and indigo, please visit the indigo detailed information page.
For short hair use 50-100 g henna; for shoulder-length hair – 100 g; for mid-back to waist-length hair – 200 g.
Expected result: on white and blonde hair - orange-red colour; on brown hair - dark red; on black hair – no change in colour; slight reddish/warm hue in sunlight.
