Henna, henna, henna...

Henna is truly a mess. You have to be so committed to avoiding chemicals to even fool with it. This product is a henna kit. First you apply the bright red henna undercoat (Step 1) to cover gray and give the second step something to bond to.
Next you apply the Step 2 indigo/henna blend.
Finally, you rinse for a long, long time.
But this DOES actually cover gray. If you have gray roots, henna alone does not cover them. It is twice the work, but you need to use a kit like this to cover gray effectively.
Medium brown is a good color, not too dark. I once used the dark brown version of this and ended up with black strands. So I stick with medium brown.
INDIGO is impossible to remove. Do a strand test.
PS You cannot go into chlorinated water once you have hennaed your hair unless you wear a bathing cap. Chlorinated pool water WILL turn your hair forest green. Word to the wise.

It was time consuming and yeah a lil messy, but after years of using store bought colorants and frying my hair it was worth the time!! I have gotten nothing but compliments on my hair and people asking where I had it done. I tell em it was not a salon, did it myself and it was all natural ingredients and they are shocked! You have to follow the timing for step one and two EXACTLY or the color wont set right.
If you are in a hurry, this is not for you, but if you want something GOOD for your hair and covers the gray *very well I might add!* this is for you!
A great alternative to chemical hair coloring products

I just colored my hair yesterday. I have learned to really condition my hair prior to using this product and leaving the henna step 1 and step 2 to cure for 2-3 hours before using it. I leave it in my hair for one hour and cover with a plastic bag, It is a very messy process but it works. The more you use it the better it takes and I find that using conditioner to rinse the last step helps get most of the henna out.

After an alarming neurological reaction to a home hair color kit, I decided to switch to a safer alternative. Because my hair was dry from the chemicals and inherently dry by nature being curly; I followed the advice given to first use neutral henna. I am incredibly pleased with the outcome. I have a significant amount of grey at the temples and under my bangs and assumed it would be a challenge to cover it. Although I was aware neutral henna could impart blonde/yellow tones to grey hair I was only expecting to prepare my hair for a brown henna. I'm really pleased that the neutral henna has done a beautiful job blending in the grey with blonde tones.
I will be experimenting in the near future with the box of medium brown henna cover the grey but might try it as a gloss to avoid any unwanted red tones. I will follow up with those results. I am a happy convert to henna. I didn't find the process as messy as many people report and because I have short hair, it wasn't too challenging to rinse out with the use of some conditioner. I will most definately be a regular henna user.
