1. Pour the henna into a glass bowl. Mix the henna with warm, distilled water until you reach a yogurt consistency.
2. Once mixed, let the henna sit to activate for 8-10 hours (if the henna hardens up 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.
Tips and Notes
Helpful Tip: Use a color-safe, sulfate & paraben-free shampoo after 48 hours of rinsing henna. It helps with getting the color stick to hair better and helps prevent color bleeding.
Important Note: Henna hair dyes are different than conventional hair coloring products, as it does not contain chemicals that lighten the color of your dark hair, or quickly develop color. With that being said, it takes around 2-3 hours minimum for the application process. Please reach out to us BEFORE placing an order if you have any questions about the application process.
Allergy Warning: Although our Natural Red henna hair dye is made with 100% natural & plant-based ingredients, some people may still be allergic to plant-based products. To rule that out for our Natural Red henna, please do a strand/skin test before doing a full on application.
- Henna Guys
My natural hair color is dirty blonde/light brown. I've been dying my hair various shades of ginger red for years with chemical dyes but I needed an alternative with the lockdown. I used 1 & 1/2 packs of the Natural Red (1 would have been enough though) and a couple tablespoons of the Cassia (for shine/gloss) all mixed with water. The underside of my hair was undyed but the color turned out pretty consistently throughout. I'm so happy with the results, wish I had done this years ago!
This was my first time using Henna and I had taken a lot of time to do research, read reviews, watch YouTube videos, look at various Henna companies, and to pick a color that I thought would give me the best end results based on my original hair color. I came across the Henna Guys in my searching for the best product and decided to buy from this company based on all of the great reviews from customers. My hair is a medium brown that gets golden highlights in the summer, but is a darker brown underneath. However, I had dyed it a permanent purple boxed color October of 2019, then again in January or 2020 a semi-permanent cranberry pink/red boxed color. Most of the dye had faded out but you could still see some purple/pink in the right lighting. Needless to say my hair looked very dingey and kind of a splotchy brown/purple/pink mess. I was really worried the Henna wouldn't cover my hair evenly or that my brown hair would be too dark to achieve the bright, natural looking, copper orange red head color I desired. I have long, nearly waist length, thick hair, and I ordered two packs of the Natural Red. It was suggested to me by customer service to use a pack and a half, but I decided to use both packs, and I'm extremely glad I did because I had exactly *just* enough to finish. (I did decide to use some lemon juice as well to try and achieve a brighter color so I used the juice of two lemons.) It was an extremely messy, frustrating, time consuming ordeal, but the results were everything I could have hoped for and more. I know they say Henna will darken more over the next few days after you dye it so the color in the photos may not be what my true final end results will be, but you can see how bright, vibrant, and rich the color is!!! That being said, I really wish the instructions were more clear as far as how much water to add to the Henna powder. Anywhere I looked online, as well as the instructions included with this Henna, and from The Henna Guys customer service, the consistency of the Henna paste was very vague. A "cake batter like consistency" or "pancake batter" is very vague in my opinion because, as someone who bakes very frequently, there are many different cake batter consistencies... I believe next time I will add slightly more water so the paste is a bit looser and just slightly less "spreadable". It was rather hard to work into my hair which was very frustrating, and ended up taking me 5 hours to finish. (I live in New Mexico and it is extremely dry here, so I was having to combat that as well while applying the Henna paste to my hair.) I also noticed when I mixed the Henna powder with the lemon juice and hot water that it was slightly lumpy, and I was worried it would stay that way. But after letting it sit covered in a warm area for 8 hours and then stirring it again, all the lumps were gone and it was a very smooth paste. I decided to let my Henna process on my head overnight, so I wrapped my head in plastic wrap, put the shower cap on over that, and covered my pillow case in a towel. The next morning I rinsed it out using the garden hose outside (it is a VERY messy process) for a very long time to get as much out as I could, and then brushed it, wrapped it in a head towel for awhile, then let it air dry. Overall, I will definitely be ordering from the Henna Guys again as I was very, very happy with the product and the results it gave me, and I hope my detailed review helps someone else who wants to try Henna dye for their hair.
