Want to enrich the tone of your hair, with out the harsh chemicals?
Dying your hair with henna is a natural process that can transform your hair safely and organically. While the act of applying henna can be a very messy, if done carefully it can be a rewarding process, producing a vibrant natural shade.
Most 100% natural Henna dyes are found in a diverse array of tones to suit any of your coloring needs. In addition to achieving a great color, it can alsoimprove the texture of hair that has been treated with a chemical relaxer. It only coats your hair with color and doesn’t alter the true color of your hair. Because of this, it is a perfect option for people looking to change their look without using anything too harmful. One thing to keep in mind as you plan your first adventure in using Henna is that these powders or blocks of dye will require you to devote an entire evening to coloring your hair.
The first step, as with many hair dyes, is coating the skin on your face close to your hairline with a petroleum product to prevent unwanted staining.
On the same note, wearing gloves may be helpful to insure you stay clean and ready for the next day. Next you have to mix your pigment. If you buy a ready made Henna, all you have to do is add water, mix, it coat your hair with the henna, starting at the roots and expanding down to the ends.
Wait for 2-4 hours to let the color fully penetrate each strand of hair. The henna will harden and feel like a hair helmet, but this is expected and is not cause for alarm.
After the proper time has elapsed, rinse your hair carefully over the sink or bathtub to eliminate possible messes.
Once the water runs clear, you can shampoo and condition your hair as it will more than likely feel drier then normal. Brush your hair thoroughly to remove any remaining particles of Henna. After several washes your hair will feel softer and stronger.
With these few easy steps you will have a sultry, deep hair color that you will love!
