Henna powder comes from the dried and crushed leaves of the shrub Lawsonia inermis. Henna has been used for centuries for its anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antibacterial properties, as well as its well-known ability to colour, condition and strengthen the hair. Henna helps to seal the hair cuticle, thus preventing breakage and increasing shine. It also helps to prevent hair loss.
Pure henna is an orange/red dye. It cannot lighten hair, so black hair will develop some red highlights in sunlight, blond or grey hair will go orange/red and brown hair will go deep auburn. Henna can be mixed with indigo to dye hair in shades of brown to black.
Our henna can also be used on the skin for henna art. It can be mixed with the pure indigo powder to create darker colours.
- Seals the hair cuticle, helping to prevent breakage and split ends, making hair stronger and increasing shine.
- Improves scalp condition by unclogging pores thus boosting hair growth.
- Balances oily hair and pH levels by restoring normal function to sebaceous glands.
