“Chrysophanic acid and Emodin are two anthraquinoid dyes that are present in the roots of Rhubarb. As a dye (Chrsophanic Acid) can be used to make yellow, orange and red shades with suitable mordants and is sometimes used as a dye for hair, since Chrysophanic Acid will bind to the keratin in hair……Physcion or Parietin is another anthraquinone found in Rhubarb. It has anti-tumour and anti-fungal properties and is orange-yellow in colour.”

Rhubarb Root

What this means is that rhubarb root dye is absolutely fantastic for hair health, regardless of whether you’re blonde or not. On blonde and lighter hair colours Rhubarb Root Hair Dye will enhance your natural colour tones and naturally highlight your hair. On darker hair colour tones, a couple of tablespoons thrown into your henna means that, just like cassia obovata,  you won’t notice any colour, but you will notice the hair conditioning effects.

The botanical name for Renaissance Henna’s rhubarb root dye is : rheum officinale. Our rhubarb root hair dye comes from India.
