Love the henna. The burgundy mixed with a little extra indigo makes a beautiful deep dark color. I have used other hennas and The Henna Guys is great quality for the price!
Excellent experience, I can’t use 'over the counter' hair color, Henna provides a rich deep color. Prepare the products the night before use, be sure you are available for at least 3 hours the day of the application. The rich color last for weeks.
Excellent color and quality henna
I've been using henna two years to colour the white hairs at the roots of my natural dark red hair. I previously used boxes and salon hair dyes. After developing an allergy, I explored my options for my hair. I nearly freaked out until I discovered natural henna (natural is the KEY). I used another company prior to ordering from the Henna Guys, and it was great but I needed to receive it quicker. I'm not a plan ahead person. I was nervous switching. I tried the plain henna dye first which I loved. Then I decided to be fancy and purchased the Natural Red which is more fiery, more like the colour of my hair as a kid. I like both and would highly recommend them both. Don't go into using henna with any misconceptions. If you have gray, this lasts as long as any regular hair dye. Your roots start to show in 3-4 weeks. It's a process but not hard. My routine: For root coverage, mix half a pack with one capful of "The Mother" cider vinegar and some filtered H2O. I mix in a glass bowl with a rubber spatula. Mix to a thick but slightly loose consistency, too watery might not adhere as well. I let it sit while I wash my hair with a natural clarifying shampoo, then wring out hair and pat with a towel. Wearing nitrile gloves, I cover my bathroom sink and counter with an old dark towel. I apply this while wearing no clothes. If you're clothed, wear something dark. I part my hair and work from the part smearing henna from front to back down partline. Then either taking a comb or your fingers flip that layer over towards the other side and repeat. I put it on heavily at the temples, my nape (by feel), and where any grays are the most prominent. Once one side is done, take that half and put it back over and clip it. Repeat on other side. Make sure you work it into back roots as well. When I'm done with this (takes 10 min and my hair is wavy/curly and thick), I take my hair clip from the first side and twist all of my hair up to clip it up at the back. I then put a decent sized plastic shopping bag over my head, pull it tight and pull the loops up to the top of my forehead and clip with an alligator clip. This is important, because you are keeping your hair in a moist environment, kind of like a greenhouse effect. I apply some henna to my brows after that. I throw away my gloves and take wet paper towels and carefully remove henna that may have gotten on my skin (neck, face, shoulder). I wait 1 1/2 to 2 /2 hours before I remove the bag (over tub because there may be some dry henna flakes floating down). I get into shower and gently rinse my hair for at least 15 minutes in lukewarm water. I use conditioner after that and work it in everywhere. Then after a few minutes, I flip my hair forward and rinse with very cool water (important!! even after washing hair days or weeks later). When color stops running out, I get out and style hair as usual. I let it air dry. There may be some color running. Just wipe with paper towel. Typically towels and clothing (dark) that have gotten henna on them come clean in the wash. Henna on skin fades within 2 days. This isn't a tattoo. After you become accustomed to using henna, it's much easier than this story sounds. I highly recommend it. I get compliments daily, and I'm 48 yo. I don't know how this will be in the future, but henna is way better than hair dye. The colour payoff is worth it to me. Good luck to any new users and be practical in choosing colours which suit your natural hair by reading reviews or calling for help.
Happy wife, happy life.....lol
