HENNA COLOUR - HERBAL COLOURING MIXTURE
Colouring mixture, in addition to dyeing - strengthen, brighten hair, returns its shine! Its use is beneficial for the recovery of an oily scalp with dandruff formation tendencies. Depending on the original colour of the hair, it colours it into copper, bronze up to maroon! Henna is a thorny-like shrub, whose dried leaves have been used since time immemorial for colouring the skin and hair, nails as well as textile fibers and fabrics. Not only does it return hair its natural colour, but also strengthen, refresh and brighten it. Thus, they are more durable, much easy to mold! The henna has antifungal and antibacterial properties, thus it contributes to the reduction of dandruff formation and regulates sebum production. When mixed with other types – neutral or black henna – a wide range of colours and shades can be obtained. This high quality product is chemical additive (preservative, synthetic dye), metal salt and lead free. Animal additive free.
There are incredibly lot of application methods, the following are the two basic:
Application in the form of a rinse solution: the macerate is prepared by diluting the colouring with the diluted water (warm boiled), in a ratio 1:10, which we leave brew for about 24 hours. Subsequently it is used as a rinsing solution or added to a shampoo and hair conditioner.
Application in the form of a mask/wrap: we let the boiled water cool (to about 60 degrees). In a bowl mix hot water with the colouring and mix it into a homogenous paste (in a ratio of approximately 70% water and 30% mixture). Cover the paste and let it act for about 30 minutes. Into the resulting paste other additives can be added, listed in the table below. Then gently put on disposable rubber gloves and with a brush or hand only, apply the mixture onto clean and dry hair until it is hot. The paste is applied from the roots towards the ends, your strands. Apply the mixture generously over the entire length of your hair using your fingers and massage it into the hair and scalp. After applying the paste, wrap your hair with a foil or plastic cover (cap), then with a towel, so as the colouring effect could better develop. We let the mixture act for at least 30 minutes, but not more than 23 hours (best results are achieved after only 3-4 hours, but it is best to leave it wrapped overnight)! After achieving the colouring effects of the mixture, mold in a usual, normal way.
