How to use
The exact amount needed depends on hair length and thickness.
If you have short hair or for root touch-up, use 50 g henna powder.
For shoulder-length hair, use 100-150 g henna.
Mid-back length: 150-200 g henna.
Very long/thick hair: 200-300 g.
Mix the exact amount needed in a porcelain or glass container and add warm water or chamomile/hibiscus tea; if you wish, you could add a bit of vinegar as well. To reduce the smell of henna, add 1 tsp cinnamon or a few drops of essential oils. Cover the container and leave for dye release for 12 hours (6 is enough during the summer). Apply on clean and dry hair and leave on between 1-3 hours. Rinse thoroughly with water and use hair conditioner if your hair is dry.
If you are affected by favism: henna could cause a hemolytic crisis. Please consilt your doctor before use.
