 Best Mixing Practices

Henna Supplies

50-75g for short hair, 100-150g for medium length, 200-250g for long hair.

  1. Mix Henna, indigo and cassia in a bowl with lukewarm water to make a paste similar to a ketchup consistency.

  2. For resistant grey, premix Henna with water and 15 g of Amla. Let sit for 6-12 hours before application.

  3. Apply the henna paste to a section of clean wet or damp hair from roots - ends.

    4. Wrap hair with plastic wrap or shower cap to keep moist.

    5. Let sit for 1-4 hours. The longer, the deeper the shade. Rinse                                       thoroughly.
