Herbal Hair Colour: Start Your Herbal Hair Colouring Journey with a Natural Hair Dye Kit

Herbal hair colour Natural Hair Dye Kits  are made from crushed henna plant leaves and indigo plant leaves.

All our boxed Renaissance Henna Herbal Hair Colour  Kits come with a detailed instructions booklet to help make your  first time herbal hair colouring application easy. The way it works is you mix henna powder with water to create a mid paste and apply that to your hair. The henna paste application will darken your hair colour towards reddish brown.  And it will give  shocking red and orange tones on grey or white hair when you wash it out. You can change the colour  to auburn, brown or black with indigo. If you have dark hair, the henna will add deep reddish tones and make your hair look like it has natural red lowlights  and any greys in your hair will look like reddish highlights. The difference between lowlights and highlights is that highlights brighten your hair  and can be shocking. Whereas lowlights tend to deepen your hair colour and are more subtle.

How to Get Brown Hair with Henna Indigo : Indigo after henna will give you brown hair colour, even on 100% grey hair. For best results,use separately – henna first,then indigo to get brown hair. The lighter your starting colour, the more vibrant your resulting stage 1 auburn henna hair colour will be. You’ll get a shade of fiery auburn on lighter colour hair,and deep auburn on darker  starting colours. Stage 2 indigo after the henna will then turn your auburn to chestnut brown hair, through to chocolate brown hair, through to black, depending how long you leave the  indigo in your hair for.

Henna Hair Colour Plant Dye Strand Tests

The  hair colour strand tests don’t always give you an accurate prediction of your end result hair colour. And they don’t always reflect the intensity of colour you will get on a full hair application. Many strand tests give disappointing results which are  nowhere near the stunning hair colour results from a full hair application. Maybe it’s the body temperature that makes the difference; it’s hard to say. Also, do remember that your strand test hair may not be a true indicator of final hair shade because the strand test hair may have uneven colour saturation, especially if you’ve previously used hair dyes. Also remember that  hennaed hair can look like a different hair colour shade depending on the light so it’ll look different  indoors compared to how it looks outdoors.  Henna and indigo should be used by every person on the planet at least once in a lifetime. It’s too incredible to miss out on !

A Reminder about Previous use of Chemical Hair Dyes and Henna

If you’ve previously used chemical hair dyes, although you can go straight ahead and use henna / indigo, we recommend you wait as long as possible. We recommend a waiting time of at least two weeks, especially if you’ve just permed your hair. The longer the better. This is to allow time for your hair to offload chemical hair dye build up, and to detox. The wait will also ensure you get the best hair colour uptake from henna/indigo. It’s the compound “metallic salt mix” hennas which hairdressers moan about and say you can’t use before or after hair dyes. Our henna and indigo are not mixed with metallic salts. They are  one hundred per cent pure henna and one hundred percent pure indigo. They are PPD free hair dyes. They are additive free, ammonia free, and chemical free. They are not the same stuff your hairdresser is talking about. Renaissance henna and indigo are safe to use both before and after chemical hair dye, but we advise that you wait as long as you can before using hair dyes either side of henna.
