It is a blend of 35% natural Henna Powder and 65% natural Indigo Powder, a natural way to deepen natural shade of dark reddish brown while adding shine and intensity to hair color. Henna is a hair conditioner of all, acts as a hair-vitalizer and promotes hair growth.
Approximately 1/2 cup (4oz) of henna powder may be enough for shoulder length hair, 1 cup for below the shoulder, 2/3 cups for waist length.
Suggested recipe to make Henna paste & use it:
Mix in warm water to natural henna powder (may use tea or coffee brews & add a splash of lemon juice) in a bowl until it is the consistency of tooth paste, cover & let it sit at room temperature for 8-12 hours. Apply the paste to a cleaned & dried hair until all the hair is covered with henna paste. Cover hair with plastic wrap for 3-6 hours then rinse henna with warm water until the water runs clear. Henna takes about 24-48 hours to develop the color properly.
Using henna paste for hand & feet:
Put the paste in a henna cone or applicator bottle. Apply henna oil to the cleaned and dried skin. Apply the paste to the skin as per the lines or shapes you desire. Keep the paste on the skin at list for 3/4 hrs before wash out the paste.
