Henna powder comes from the dried and crushed leaves of the shrub Lawsonia inermis. Our plants are organically grown in northern India. 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.
Henna colours hair by coating the hair shaft and binding to the keratin. It is a red dye, but as it contains no chemicals 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.
• Seals the hair cuticle, helping to prevent breakage and split ends, making hair stronger and increasing shine.
