Henna is best known as a natural dye for the hair. Henna not only colors hair, but its conditioning properties help bring body, life and vibrancy back to dry or damaged hair. Henna permeates the hair shaft to strengthen and enrich. It is well-known for its capabilities as a conditioner for hair and its versatility.

Henna also increases the functionality of scalp by removing the wastes and impurities that have accumulated on it. Its rich content of necessary ingredients makes your hair stronger and it can also give your hair gloss and smoothness.

Our hibiscus is organic and from Egypt. In Ayurveda, Hibiscus (Jaswand) is known as one of the best secrets to beautiful and healthy hair. Hibiscus promotes hair growth, stops hairfall, gives hair a healthy luster with bounce, and delays premature graying. Its cool effects stimulates hair growth, increases hair thickness, and is an excellent natural conditioner. For henna color treatments, hibiscus is used to achieve a burgandy to black cherry color on hair. It is also slightly acidic and helps to aid in a faster henna dye release. Great as a tea rinse for hair! Taken internally, Hibiscus aids in weight loss, is high in Vitamin C, aid in healthy glowing skin, lowers high blood pressure, helps control cholesterol, and an antioxidant. Hisbiscus tea has a cooling effect in the body, delicious and has pleasant smell.

I personally don’t use shampoo on my hair right after I henna. It just adds to the drying effect that sometimes happens after using henna. If your hair is clean before the treatment its really not needed. RINSE RINSE RINSE the treatment out then follow up with a deep conditioner :0)
