Henna hair color for men and women is a great alternative as a natural dyeing product compared to the chemical dyes.
To apply Henna hair color, start with wash and dry your hair before applying the henna paste. Our Select Harvest™ Henna makes a great base for this color, while indigo and added herbs taper back the deepest red and leave a warm, auburn finish. By mixing extra natural conditioning agents (alma and shikakai), we can stabilize the red & brown pigment release to make a vibrant rusty-brown hue. For more application instructions, how to spot test, and gray root process go to our detailed application page. My hair feels amazing, I decided to use this product because I have gone shampoo and conditioner free for the passed year and I didn’t want to smear chemicals all over my head when I was feeling sassy and wanted a change (it would completely defeat the purpose of going shampoo free) so I tried this and it gives rich color and highlights, the only thing is that it is a lot darker than I expected.
Okay, first off my hair is naturally ashy blonde but I always thought I looked better with darker or red hair. For as longs as I remember I’ve had scalp issues dandruff, itching, and greasy hair within 12 hours of washing.
If you section your hair into small sections with sections on the back and each side and start with the back. Wait at least a few days before you bawl your eyes out because you hate the color and either shave it off or run the the salon for them to get rid of it. I am by far no expert so I suggest you talk to one if you have questions concerns or problems relating to henna before doing anything too drastic that can’t be undone. I used the proper temperature of water and made a paste that was about brownie batter consistency. I suppose it is mostly my fault because I did choose to apply this dye to my hair, and it did add more red. I’ve been chemically dyeing my hair red for probably 20 years, and I HATE how fast the chemical color strips out of my grays around my face.
My gray roots are a LOVELY shade of bright auburn, but it turned the rest of my hair a dark brown, almost black. I ordered 4 packages of auburn in the Super bundle along with a single package of the ginger blonde. Until now, my hair stylist (a family friend of mine) hadn’t seen henna in a while, and I’m glad I could take my henna to her, because it definitely reduced the mess!!
Every couple of months, I spend $1.98 on two boxes of henna plus the price of a paltry bottle of lemon juice. Despite how spiffy henna is, there are surprisingly few English tutorials available online, so I’ve decided to present you with my tried and true methods. This step is by far my favorite, as I happen to consider myself quite skilled at looking funny.
Your hair will be bright red for the first couple of days after dying it, but it will deepen in color afterwords.
I haven’t heard about the paprika addition, but if you have luck with it, let me know. I have naturally dirty blond hair, but have been dying it for what seems like thousands of years.
I have been dying my hair any red from light auburn (which I prefer best) to as dark as Irish Red Auburn, thanks to my stylist who seems to think it should be darker every month for reasons I can’t sink my teeth into! Ingredients: natural henna, natural indigo, alma gooseberry, false daisy, neem leaf…(that’s it).
I have blond hair and it came out very red…which I don’t mind, just not what I was expecting!
I am allergic to hair dye, which used to really make me mad until I started researching how bad commercial dye is for your hair & body.
Super easy to use (more so than the Lush blocks I’d previously tried), mess notwithstanding! I started out with a dark strawberry blonde with a few highlights in the front and I came out with a brown color with red undertones.
I thought it was a little odd that there were no negative or mediocre reviews on the site, but then I tried the product. I waited a few weeks to write my review because I wanted to see how the color developed, and I couldn’t be happier.
After washing out and blow drying my hair, there was a lot of bright red (I didn’t notice any green as some people mentioned, but I have a great deal of red in my hair naturally and I was coloring over bleach so maybe that explains my color). Within a week, however, my hair was a gorgeous light brown that looked perfectly natural with minimal red. I researched a lot of different companies before deciding to order from here and I am so glad I did. If you're looking for a natural alternative to chemical hair dyes, you may want to consider henna hair color. Have you ever wanted to change your hair color but been nervous about the chemicals in hair dyes? Henna will stain your hair red-orange; but this stain is translucent and will combine with your natural color. Of all the many LUSH inventions, we always get the most questions about our Henna Hair Dyes. A feisty blonde hair booster, this subtle pigment blend warms blondes to a golden-ginger blush, while adding all the nourishing benefits of a traditional henna-herbal treatment.
From hard water to daily pollution to styling products, blonde hair needs a boost to get back its luster and unique hue.
Ingredients: cassia obovata, lawsonia inermis linn (natural henna), turmeric leaf extract powder…(that’s it).
Cassia obovata, lawsonia inermis linn (natural henna), turmeric leaf extract powder…that’s it. My hair is naturally strawberry blonde, so this ginger blonde henna really only accented my color. I’ve had dreadlocks for almost 2 years now and I was very reluctant to chemically dying them so I just held off, even though while I had my regular hair I dyed it constantly.
BUT I noticed that the green undertones come out when I use the Ginger Blonde during the summer, probably because Of the sun exposure. So I bought the starter bundle which included the treatment, shampoo, and then I chose this and the light brown colors.
My only dissapointment I had was I had emailed this company a question before I ordered and they never answered me. After deciding I no longer wanted to bleach my dirty blond hair, but wanting to keep my hair looking healthy and vibrant(I am not the biggest fan of my dirty blond hair after having beautiful bright blonde hair for so much of my life), I decided to try henna again. Henna used for hair coloring has no side effects, and is hence opted for by people who are looking to dye their hair without using any harmful or harsh chemicals.
Wear some old clothes and cover the floor with some newspaper to protect from spillage of the paste. One of the benefits of henna over other hair color products is that it is natural and is beneficial for the hair in many ways.
Once mixed, the two bold colors are resisted just enough by the added conditioners to bind at slightly different rates. I’ve been using the mahogany color for about a year now, and was basically happy with it.
I am 30 years old and have been dying my hair since high school (just because I like change and also shiny, healthy looking hair). About 4 years ago I switched to sulfate free shampoos and the greasiness and most of the itching and dandruff went away. To make it darker I know all I have to do is another layer of henna and it will build up, which is another wonderful plus. If you expect it to be EXACTLY the color it shows and are going to be an unhappy camper and complain you should just leave your hair alone. Then twist all the hennaed parts into a dreadlock state doing it yourself is no problem at all. I didn’t want to try to do this myself so i took it to a professional to have her do the coloring.
I have been dying my hair for almost ten years and the most recent bleaching, color oopsing left it with tons of split ends, unmanageable and a very awkward yellow blonde.(Also in the past my hair always grew fast and it literally stopped growing for like three months) The Auburn covered my hair perfectly and reinvigorated it with shine and thickness and by the third or fourth use my hair was growing fast again.
I also accept that henna is unpredictable in the way it reacts with every person’s hair color. Lately I’ve been having a reaction to chemical dyes and went in search of a natural alternative.
Unfortunately, the only time i attempted to dye my hair with conventional chemical dyes, my hair became brittle and fell out. I had previously dyed it last month with the medium brown and loved it, but I’m now in the mood to add some red hues. I have nothing but good things to say about this product- I used 2 auburn for myself and my mum used an auburn mixed with the ginger blonde. Ive never dyed all of my hair before, but previously before I used the henna, I had light brown hair with blonde ombre tips.

You’ll also need to let the dye set for several hours (typically around five) before washing it out.
My hair currently lies four to six inches past my shoulders and I have been using two 100-gram boxes (200 grams total) of henna powder, which always results in leftovers. Spread the henna mixture all throughout your hair, making sure to get between every crevice.
I typically wait about five hours for the henna to work its magic, but have waited as little as three and as much as seven with fine results. My friend is african american and have been dying her hair with mehndi for little more than a year now. It results too quick die release and after you have let the mixture sit in your hair and wash it off you rarely get lasting colour. I initially dyed my hair with henna several weeks after using box dye with no negative results. I first started applying it when I visited Morrocco and was told to mix the henna powder with two raw eggs and warm water.
Since the henna is sort of thick and sticky, use foil and a tint brush to separate it from the rest of your hair. The exact shade of red varies from person to person, but the general rule of thumb is that, at first, there will be a more orange tint to your hair, making it appear brighter than the final dye color. You can mix it with other similar ground-up plant material (such as indigo), but I’ve never done that. Like in the morning when it has that sheen of red across the top- yep, happens in 30 minutes or so. I recently stopped putting chemicals of any kind in my hair and wanted to try henna hair dye. Nice earthy smell, makes me feel like a greenwitch as I’m slopping the paste all over my head. I am all about products that are cruelty free, animal friendly, save the earth- products, and love.
Typical story, damaged hair from years of chemical lightening, and I wanted to be able to color my hair but not damage it with chemicals. Widely known as a dye used to create body art, this plant-based dye has long been used as a hair dye in India, Rome and Spain for centuries and is gaining popularity here in the US. Its leaves have been dried, ground, and used as a dye for the skin and hair for thousands of years in India and the Middle East. It turned my dull, ashy blonde hair into a subtle strawberry blonde that glows in the sunshine!
I started adding about a TBS of the natural red henna to a bag of the ginger blonde and haven’t looked back! I had subtle blonde highlights added about six months before I started using the Ginger Blonde henna from this site on my hair. With the henna dye i knew my dreadies would be safe ?? However, I did have to leave it on for a little more than 6 hours! It doesn’t come out, I just have to grow my hair out (and keep using the henna dye when it fades and the green undertones comes out).
I was extremely nervous to try henna but as a natural redhead I needed to cover the little bit of gray starting to come in around my hair line and temples but I didn’t want to not have red hair.
In the past I didn’t have the best of luck, but this time I decided to try it again with a bit more preparation.
Henna hair color also has an effective, natural method way to color you hair and make it stronger. If you are applying henna for the first time, then you have to do a strand test to check whether you are allergic to henna hair coloring. And then you have the rich chocolate base, with the rusty auburn-red henna hugging the outside.
I am so glad that I decided to purchase from henna color lab (instead of trying lush’s bars) because my hair turned out wonderfully perfect, and my curls couldn’t be happier! However, there is a lot of indigo in that mix, so my hair has been getting blacker and blacker. I was hesitant to try this because I was fearful that the years of dying would turn it a funky orange (not what I wanted). The color bleeding and fading I’m guessing is connected, once the bleeding stopped so did the fading. My hair is a natural light brown with red highlights that I had never dyed before in my twenty one years of life. When buying this product remember that it is not an exact science and funny looking, cool toned red (cool is a description of shade of red). I had my hair chemically dyed a light auburn, so I went with the auburn, figuring better too dark than too light. Recently, I went vegan and in changing over my beauty products to cruelty-free options I learned that henna is vegan and all natural! Even after leaving henna on for a long period of time, your hair will immediately be more orange than red, but it will deepen in color afterwards (a few days later) to form a richer red.
This is because orange henna remnants will still coat the outside of your hair strands until this coating is fully washed out to reveal the internal hair dye (i.e. After three, it shouldn’t matter terribly much since most of the dye has bound — just make sure to mix it a day ahead. I was going to dye my hair with henna powder but I wanted to get a little more information on it. Neem oil and additional herbs blend into the mix enough to hold back the darkest color expression, allowing a light, balanced color that’s equal parts gentle and rich. My intention was to improve his head of hair and go back to my natural color (or at least close as possible) which is a medium brown, but with a little kick qnd spice.
In my late teens and early 20’s I had colored my hair every color in the rainbow but I know how damaging that is––not to mention all of the chemicals. It smells bad (reminded me of a horse stable) and took me about an hour and a half to cover my whole head (my hair is about 4 inches past my shoulders and one package was plenty) but I LOVED the results.
If you want a true chocolate brown color I’d try something a little darker (especially if you have light hair), but overall this is beautiful! This conditioned my hair (somewhat damaged from years of dyeing) beautifully — feels shiny and strong! The smell is kind of hard to get out of your hair and I didn’t have any blue or green undertones at all. Recently my hair had been falling out and breaking off so I had decided to stop using chemicals of any kind on it which meant no more coloring. I started with past shoulder length chemically treated level 9 blond hair with about 2.5 inches of dark dishwater blonde roots.
There is an alternative to chemical hair dyes that can give you the hair color results you have been looking for. I did a test strand and found that the Ginger Blonde dye had very little effect if I just leave it on two hours. I decided to order anyway and the henna came very fast and I am glad I ordered and plan to order again. With some excellent advice from the customer service team (They are FABULOUS), I decided to take it slow, and start with the ginger blonde.
From rich coppers, reds, and auburns to cinnamons and burgundies, henna helps your hair acquire the color your want while at the same time can increasing hair volume. This can be done by applying it on a few strands of hair, starting from the roots to the tips. Apart from dyeing the hair, it is also a good conditioner, which imparts a brilliant shine and a smooth texture to the hair, and is effective in removing tangles.A  Henna hair color is a natural product, free of the side-effects and the allergic reactions sometimes caused by commercial hair dyes, and you can apply it yourself. Undertones can range from light red to green to blue before fully maturing—very normal (most blend within hours).
The color is beautiful, although mine ended up much darker than in the picture shown, so make sure you look at the color result chart before you pick your color.
Due to the extra redness, I actually washed the original hair treatment out with conditioner, as advised, mixed with a nickel worth of shampoo, which lessened the red some what, and made it look more like this picture. There is also something about the buildup of indigo that makes my over-40 hair dry and frizzy. However, after i was rinsed and styled according to the instructions there was no color change :-(.
At first I was very nervous to put it in my dreads, I was fearing that I was not going to be able to get all of the henna dye out, but it wasn’t all of that difficult. You can use shampoo if you don’t appreciate the earthy smell of the henna, but I usually wait until the next day to do so. Be sure to still use at least 60% henna when mixing so your hair maintains the red henna tint.
I leave my henna in for hours because, in theory, the henna-juice paste is so thick that I want it to shift and spread out underneath the shower cap. I had also tried different types of henna over the years but had never been fully satisfied with the color.

First, I was nervous that I would end up with colored hair which still showed my roots but that did not happen, the color applied completely evenly on roots and colored hair and looked so natural, I love it! Organic hair color can offer a range of different shades and tones while making your hair look and feel smoother and healthier in the process.
I can’t wait to do it again and deepen the color, or maybe try something darker like the copper brown this winter. It added a beautiful ginger sheen to my lightly bleached dirty blonde hair, and brought out my green eyes even more. Hair that has been treated with henna is also softer, stronger and more resistant to split ends. It is also believed that henna has antifungal properties, which helps in controlling dandruff. However, the original color is also very pretty and I would recommend this product to anyone!! I had a demarcation line between my old and new growth that was about three inches or maybe four inches.
I have hair a few inches past my shoulders and I mixed half a pack of Auburn color with one pack of medium brown. The auburn has indigo in it so the more you use it the darker it gets, so I switched to the copper which is a little more orange, but nice too. I am now going to spend the remainder of my night Googling ways to remove henna in a timely fashion. Definitely going to experiment with some of their other colors this fall, namely the mahogany, and probably the wine red to add even MORE red goodness to the hair!
I would love some help because this is new and I don’t want to waste a whole day doing it wrong.
I thought I was just going to have to live with at least a years worth of bad hair until it all grew out. The ONLY complaint I have is that the gloves it came with were horrible, but everything else was great!
I found that my first application was a very delightful change for me to strawberry blonde — my family could definitely tell the difference, but in some lighting strangers thought I was still blonde. I have about 2 inches of darker blonde roots showing, and the color helped to blend my roots a little, as I was hoping. Then after your dry, dump henna powder into a mixing bowl and turn it into a goopy paste by adding equal parts water and lemon juice. The henna I was using (purchased elsewhere)turned my new growth a pretty medium to dark auburn, but the old damaged hair was a very bright coppery color. The auburn turned my medium dark brown hair a rich auburn with vibrant red hues in the sunlight. I would recommend checking your neighborhood Indian grocer instead of buying henna online, since it is much more cost effective (and easy!) to buy locally. After application, my highlighted hair had a green tint (I believe his can be attributed to the indigo), the rest of my hair was a dark bark brown. After the application and wash out last night, I really think I will never use another brand on this hair. On me, it was a dark auburn for the first week, and with time has gradually came out to be a very warm reddish brown.
You can still see where the demarcation line is… but for the time being, this is definitely an improvement.
Henna has many other healing effects and it is advisable that you always check for original henna powder, to achieve the best results.
I tried the dark brown, and that didn’t seem to work on my hair at all (very poor gray coverage). The color looks even better than what I would pay in a salon; natural, glossy, and healthy looking. I’m trying the medium brown this week cause I want to return to my natural color, and the henna treatments for the summer.
Instead of a natural looking auburn I now have an extremely unnatural cool red coloring to my hair. Its all on your preference,It contains pure indigo with herbs like amla and other ayurvedic herbs to help nourish your hairs and give them the natural look and color. Now I look at the color chart and it does look more copper than the hair on the model, so therefore it was my fault. After 1 week my hair is a gorgeous light brown color and I just ordered 4 more packages of Light Brown! I did notice the slight green tint initially due to the indigo, but it was gone within 24 hours. Did my hair today and left it in for about and hour and 45 mins not including the amount of time it took to apply it. Henna colorlab is easy to use, inexpensive, has fast delivery and is really an all around great product.
I will repeat again that I have never dyed my hair before and did not expect this result to be so far from what was advertised. People who wash their hair every other day and with 100 percent herbal shampoo and conditioner tend to hold on to the color for a longer period of time. The quality of this henna is the best I have ever used and we will be buying this shade again.
I recommend doing that your first time since it made applying the actual color easier since I had practice. Personally I love the red tones, and I think next time I will mix half a bag of this light brown shade with half a bag of pure henna to bring out even more red but still temper it with the light brown tones. Sally told me to be very careful because henna could be unpredictable and this auburn may turn out dark or not take depending on if my hair had hit the saturation point. Yes, the earthy smell and pasty application take some getting used to, but it’s so worth it! They also constantly have great deals-so much cheaper than salon or even drugstore hair dye and sooo much better for your hair. It smelt like a tea almost ?? after dying my dreads with the henna, my hair got redder throughout the next day.
Color should start fading within 4 weeks under these conditions.It is 100% natural and herbal and free from any chemical interventions.
The funny thing is, I was never really able to achieve a color that I was happy with until now.
The color is rich and natural looking, and my hair felt stronger, its been a couple weeks now and my hair still feels strong.
I am really optimistic and looking forward to finding something that I want to stick with for a long time to come! Apply petroleum jelly along the hairline and ears, and anyplace that might come into contact with the henna-soaked hair. I decided to give the auburn a try, because my demarcation line was getting really tacky, and I refuse to use anymore hair dye and chemicals. If you want a change go for Henna and don’t be scared by the clay, it’s kind of fun to think women have been doing this for thousands of years! If anyone is on the fence about trying this product, let this review be the one that makes up your mind. Auburn turns my gray hairs an Irish Setter red, and gives my dark brown (and indigo black) hair a reddish glow. I just dyed my hair with the pure Henna yesterday to cover some spots I had initially missed. I love this color but now I only wonder if just go full force and let the red in:) I love your product and look forward to experimenting with a few colors.
I am already getting my next order together and taking advantage of the special so I can try the shampoo as well. There is no hard line between the indigo dyed hair and the auburn colored roots, so the red seems to flow naturally into the brown and black. If you have a lot of gray, I do warn you that your hair will be a whole lot redder than the example photos.
Just for the tips; Always remember that application of pure henna can change the hair color to natural red only. The black and brown versions available in the market may either contain some other natural dyes or chemicals. It took about 5 shampoos to completely rinse the excess henna, and it took about four days for the color to develop completely.
