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 take up colour with the same passion as a full head of hair. Many strand tests give disappointing results which are  nowhere near the results from a full hair colour application which give stunning hair colour. 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. It’s a beautiful coat of many colours. 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 and if you never try it, you’ll never know.

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 2 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 100% pure henna and 100% pure indigo, PPD free hair dyes, additive free, ammonia free, and chemical free. They are not the same stuff your hairdresser is talking about ! Our 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.

Finally : A Truly Natural Plant Hair Colour !

The Renaissance Henna Plant Hair Dye Kit comes with full instructions. Look through the plant hair colour galleries to give yourself an idea how it’s likely to turn out. Bear in mind that you’ll only get shocking red / orange tones or highlights on grey or white hair , which you can  mute to 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; any odd greys will look like reddish highlights. The difference between lowlights and highlights? Highlights brighten your hair  and can be shocking ! Lowlights tend to deepen your hair colour and are more subtle.
