Henna is the only natural alternative to chemical hair colorings that are controversial to health considerations and harsh on the hair. Rainbow Henna is 100% natural plant material- no additives, chemicals, preservatives, metallic salts or metals. Worldwide use of Henna has been practiced and documented for over 9000 years.
Red Henna comes from small shrubs, called Lawsonia, that are native to the Middle East, West Asia, and North Africa. The leaves are dried and then pulverized into a fine powder. We also use the plants: Indigoferra, Cassia Obovata, Marigold & Chamomile Flowers to make the different shades. We choose only the finest botanicals from around the world to be used in our Hair Color.
Rainbow Henna coats the outside of each strand of hair. The shade of Henna is reflected through the hair while enhancing your hair's natural color. The cuticle is smoothed by Henna's sealing action, giving hair a polished look by making the light reflect off providing shine. Regular use of Henna can texturize the hair, giving it extra body- this becomes more evident with each application.
Rainbow Henna color will last approximately 4 to 6 weeks but is safe to use more frequently.
Rainbow Henna may be applied on wet or dry hair, but it is important that the hair be clean and free of any hair sprays, gels or conditioners. If you wish to shampoo first, towel hair dry before applying.
Pour Rainbow Henna Powder into a glass or plastic bowl. Use enough powder to cover the areas it is being applied to.
*Do not use a metal bowl or utensils*
Boil 8-16 oz of liquid (water, coffee or tea). Add the liquid gradually, using a wooden or plastic spoon mix thoroughly to reach a creamy yogurt like consistency. More liquid can be added if mixture is too thick or thickens up during application. You do not need to use all of the liquid prepared just enough to reach the right consistency.
To help cover grey or white hair mix powder with coffee or tea and 1-2 tbs of apple cider vinegar
*See below for specific instructions based on desired results
*Special Recipes and hints for use on grey hair to customize results:
Coffee or Black Tea (English Breakfast, Darjeeling, Ceylon): To help tone down red tones, deep brown-red tones, or cover grey/white hair, substitute coffee/tea for water. Use brewed, black coffee not instant.
Coffee alternatives can also be used. Can be used with black, red and brown Henna shades.
Red Teas (Rooibos, Raspberry Leaf, Red Zinger): To help enhance red tones makes them more vibrant. Can be used with all Henna shades.
Chamomile Tea: To help enhance and bring out golden blonde highlights. Can be used with Blonde, Marigold Blonde and Strawberry Blonde Henna Shades.
For Dry Hair:
Add 1 egg, 2-4 tbsp olive oil, or 2-4 tbsp plain yogurt to the Henna mixture. Only select one of these options. These natural ingredients not only condition, but can help with the application and rinsing processes.
Neutral Henna: Use as a conditioner to help add body and shine to the hair. Neutral or "Clear" Henna does not deposit color. Mix with boiling water to desired consistency and apply to hair the same way as the color shades.
You can wear plastic or rubber gloves to avoid staining your hands, although Henna does not typically stain or scalp. Henna is heat activated and we recommended using it shortly after it is mixed.
*Henna does not typically cause a reaction and does not contain any known allergens, however if you have sensitive skin or chemical sensitives a patch test on the skin is recommended before applying the full application.
- Section hair. Sections should be about 1" thick.
- Once Henna mixture is at a safe heat (warm to hot) begin at the scalp and paint on the Henna with a brush, applicator bottle or hand from roots to the ends.
- Continue until all the hair is thickly coated with the Henna mixture.
- Place a cotton or tissue band around the hairline (optional).
- Cover the hair with a shower cap, plastic bag or plastic wrap to keep Henna on hair.
- Wrap towel around the head turban style to keep in heat.
For best result, use a Salon dome dryer, Heat lamp, or Thermo Heat Cap

When timing is completed, rinse thoroughly with hot water, then rinse with cool water. Follow with Rainbow Henna Shampoo and Conditioner. Rinse thoroughly and style. To see full results hair must be completely dried.
Timing may be increased if hair is resistant.

Excellent for my Chemotherapy-Treated Mother's Greys!!!!!!!!!
Excellent for my Chemotherapy-Treated Mother's Greys!!!!!!!!!
It was really hard to convince my Mom to go with a henna product for her grey hair, which turned from a dark, chocolate brown, from chemotherapy, for breast cancer. I have been using the Rainbow Research henna, Persian Red for about 3 months, and it's been doing a really good job of making my greys look like red streaks, which I don't mind at all. I've tried other brands in past, and it was at-first very, very difficult to convince my Mom that this wouldn't make her hair red/orange. She had been using a commercial semi-permanent color, and I was really afraid for her to keep using it. My Mom was adamant about not wanting to do anything more to her hair, I had asked her many times about our having a "spa day" with henna for her greys, and she was too tired or non-believing to accept the offer. When I was ordering some other products at Iherb.com I ordered this as well and had the box sent to my mother's house. She was then able to look at the innocuous jar, and decided she would try it. She was very, very nervous throughout the whole process, but I knew I wouldn't get her to cooperate if I had purchased a 2-step process for grey hair. My persistence and like of my own experiences with this brand of henna paid off, big time! I followed the directions for use with grey hair, vinegar and coffee, no water, for mixing. I don't make a fuss with my own henna concoctions, and just use an ordinary old towel, let it "bake" for about an hour, and I'm always happy with my Persian Red. Well, her hair came out so so close to her natural chocolate brown. I knew the fibers would also help fill in a bald spot on the top of her head. That's why I gently pushed her toward this product as it's a very simple, fast mix, application (I just basically glop it on myself and my Mom with plastic gloves, newspaper on the floor and old towels). And then like my wn process, we just wrapped her hair in an old towel for an hour. Ok, it's a bit messy, but honestly, the results were just gorgeous!!!!! We only rinsed it out with water and then conditioner, and this is an important piece, do not wash it for 24-48 hours. The dye sets in during this time, and the conditioner you use during your rinse will make it very soft. I am really happy and impressed with this henna brand. It's affordable, reliable, and just fantastic! BTW: her grey was about 20-30%. And the bald spot looks a little more filled in. It was also really fun to give my Mom something that she at first refused, but which allowed us to bond, and which had really, really great results. Her hair had lovely dark brown highlights instead of the greys, blended so naturally, my Dad even complimented! AS+++++++++
Did not work for me
Did not work for me
I have dark hair with a few gray. I have tried it twice following the instruction. It is messy and the gray coverage is about 10% for me. It still looks gray. I am disappointed. It does give my hair a good shine. But that is not the purpose I purchased this product. Will not buy it again.

Very very bad, i didn't get any color grey hair stay gray bad experience
Best, natural hair colour for sensitive scalps
Posted by iamsupermum on Dec 26, 2016
I have been dyeing my hairs for years and have always hated the stinging sensation of commercial brand hair dyes on my sensitive scalp so Rainbow Research Henna is a dream! If you follow the instructions carefully, you'll find beautifully rich hair color (Sable covered my grey hairs and I left it on for 2 hours+), softer and shinier hair. Will be trying Persian medium brown next as Sable turned out rather dark. Go for it!

I followed instructions to the letter! Used black coffee, one egg, apple cider vinegar, used only plastic container & wooden spoon. Covered in plastic with heat for 60 minutes.... it did absolutely nothing to my hair except make it smell bad!!! I have only a little bit of grey hair and after washing from my head I could tell even before drying my hair that it did nothing. I will never buy this again.
Vale la pena

Me teñí el pelo de color pelirojo con un tinte convencional y me dañó mucho el pelo, y decidí volver a mi color natural. Uso la henna para teñir el resto de mi pelo que tiene una tonalidad rojiza para que el color de mi pelo sea uniforme. En mi caso el color no suele aguantar más de dos semanas, cae poco a poco en cada lavado. Es la primera vez que uso henna así que no sé si realmente es duradera o no. Su olor no es desagradable, es un olor natural, como a campo. La cantidad que viene en el bote da mucho de sí Así que volveré a comprarla, es una buena alternativa a los baños de color.
Great ingredients, but really not friendly to put on the hair + didn't colour my hair
Posted by asourroubille on Dec 03, 2016
While I love that the product is fully organic and has only natural ingredients, it really is a mess to apply on the hair and it didn't colour mine. I tried it several times, but the result was always the same: a messy bathroom, and a hair colour that stayed the same.
