Henna can be used as a permanent hair dye, it does not wash out although it will gradually fade over time. Because of this, and because the dye works like a varnish over your natural hair colour rather than chemically changing it, emerging roots are far more subtle than after using alternative synthetic dyes.
Henna covers the cuticle of the hair, varnishing it with rich colour, all while maintaining the natural structure of the hair shaft. Unlike chemical hair dye, henna hair dyes do not penetrate the inner layer of the hair (called the cortex) which means that the hair retains its moisture and flexibility.
Henna can stay rich and vibrant for up to 4-6 weeks, and you can layer the colour as much as you want. The colour will build after every application, making for dense, multi-dimensional colour.
During the application leave for at least one hour; up to two hours is recommended. Rinse off your henna with shampoo. The colour will continue to develop for up to 24 hours.
Henna restores the acid-alkaline balance of the scalp without affecting the natural balance of your hair. Henna is a very good conditioner for your hair.
