1. Pour the henna into a glass bowl. Mix the henna with warm, distilled water until it forms a yogurt-like consistency.
  2. Once mixed, let the henna sit to activate for 8-10 hours (if the henna hardens at the end of the 8-10 hours, just add a couple drops of water to loosen it up again). We suggest mixing the henna the night before you plan on applying the henna.
  3. Divide your hair into four sections. Apply the henna from the root of the hair to the tip, making sure all your hair is covered. 
  4. Once you are done applying the henna, cover your hair with a shower cap (or saran wrap). Let the henna sit on your hair for 3 hours (the longer you leave it on, the better the color will be).
  5. After the 3 hours, rinse the henna out of your hair using cool water until the water runs clear. you can use a sulfate free conditioner to help remove the henna. Do NOT shampoo for 48 hours after henna-ing.
