Henna

 Henna dye for hair

Have you decide to become bright ginger ? And have your been surfing the web to find out all about cons and pros of various dyes? So why use the chemical dye when there is an option of the perfect natural colour. This article is about HENNA.

Henna is powdered leaves of a plant called Lawsonia Inermis L. This plant grows in the form of a bush in such countries as India, Iran, Egypt and Africa. The lower leaves of the bush are used for hair dying and the upper leaves that give out the brightest colour are used for body art mehendi.

The miraculous properties of the plat have been known in the 16th century BC.
Traditionally henna has been used as disinfectant. By the way Lawsonia is a great remedy for dandruff and can be used for tanning the skin.


A few things one needs to know before dying hair with Henna

  •  Henna makes your hair heavier - it is best not to reapply henna dye on the lengths of your hair more often that once in 2-3 months. You can still apply it on roots only as often as they need to be done.
  •  Henna dries out the ends of the hair - however it might not be true for every individual.
  •  Henna drifts from ginger into red over time if it is not desirable for you, here are a few steps you can take to avoid it:
               reduce the application time to 5-7 min for light and dark blond hair, to 15 min for                            brown hair, and 20 min for dark hair.

               if you are dying your hair with henna for the first time start with  shorter periods of                        time, remember with each new application the pigment  accumulates in the hair
               use something to "dilute" lawsonia (like cassia powder or conditioner)
