Instructions

What you'll need:

  • Small glass bowl to mix paste in
  • Tint brush or fine tooth-comb
  • Thin gloves to protect hands
  • Apple Cider Vinegar (recommended for best results)

Skin Sensitivity Test:

  • Cleanse small area of skin behind ear or inner surface of the forearm
  • Apply small quantity of paste to the area and allow it to dry
  • After 24 hrs wash the area gently
  • If no irritation is apparent, it may be assumed that no sensitivity to the dye exists

Strand Test

  • Mix 1/2 tsp. Henna with 1/2 tsp of hot water.
  • Apply to 1” section of hair or enough to wrap around a finger
  • Leave on until dry
  • Rinse off
  • Shampoo
  • Dry

Preparation of Paste:

  1. Mix powder (entire contents) gradually adding about two ounces of Apple Cider Vinegar.  Hot Apple Cider Vinegar is recommended. 
  2. Stir paste thoroughly 3 minutes. While stirring it will become a gel like paste
  3. Do not use the remaining paste. Discard Immediately.

Application:

  1. Wash hair before applying.  Hair must be clean and slightly damp or dry before applying paste.
  2. Use tint brush or thin-toothed comb to apply the paste
  3. Use plastic gloves
  4. Part hair into small sections and apply paste from root to tip, working one section at a time.
  5. Do not massage paste into the scalp
  6. After applying Henna it is important to wait for the color development.  Wait until the paste is completely dry (usually about 45-60 minutes).
  7. For best gray coverage leave product on for 90 minutes. A heat cap is not required.  A HydraCap or heat cap can help the color adherence.
  8. Rinse your hair with water until the excess dye is removed and water runs clear
  9. Between color treatments use Baka Max Moist Shampoo and Silk Protein Conditioner for best color retention.

Container too Small
November 1, 2016
When I received my purchase I was so disappointed in the size. I had to postpone my dye job to purchase 3 more 2 oz containers. I pray this time it would be enough. I bought henna before and never had this problem. It's unrealistic to expect a person to use that little henna on a full head of hair. I bought 3 more containers from Amazon and if i like the results will buy it from them again.
Merchant Response:You should look into Treasured Locks Gray Away Enhanced Henna if the Natural-Colors container are too small.

I totally recommend this product if you want complete and lasting color. I was wearing my hair natural (salt and pepper gray) but I wanted a new look so I tried this product. This product covers my gray completely and it is very easy to use. I use the entire jar but for touch-ups, I was able to use just a half jar. I am ordering the dark brown next since the black is very black and I want a softer more natural hair color.

So happy to have discovered this!
September 13, 2016
I found this product online after thorough research. I absolutely love it! I have medium length long brown hair. I chose the light brown (as it does come out darker than one might think) and am thrilled. Normally my hair is tangled and unruly. This brings out my natural waves and evens out my color after years of using harmful peroxide dyes. My hair is very easy to brush now. For me, it lasts about 4 weeks. I buy it in large quantities now. I would recommend this to anyone.

Just what I was looking for!
August 14, 2016
I discovered this product online. I have mostly medium brown hair, but do have very visible gray hair. I have used products in the past with the damaging peroxide ingredients and finally quit using them a few use ago as it was damaging my hair. I decided to give this natural product a try and absolutely love it. I went a shade lighter based upon some of the reviews. I am really glad I did. The inclination was to do a medium brown, but instead I chose light brown. I am very happy with my decision. I would rather have subtle red highlights than gray hair and I love the color it made my hair although it made it slightly darker. My hair was so soft and manageable and easy to comb (I have mid-back length hair). For me, it has lasted about weeks and I am getting ready to re-do it. I love this product!

Pros and cons
April 27, 2016
I have used the dark brown 3-4 times and the medium brown mixed with mahogany once. I have very stubborn curly gray hair which I have been coloring for years with salon color. Using less harsh and more natural products has been an ongoing part of my natural hair journey which led me to this product. For the most part, I have been very pleased with my experiences with this product. Pros- Leaves my hair soft, only takes 2 hrs start to finish, easy to do yourself, rinses easily, convenient. Cons- only a week or 2 before I start seeing grays poking through, I only get complete coverage with dark brown, loosens curl pattern, cost when include shipping. Overall, I would definitely recommend if you're like me and don't want red hair while also needing something stronger for your grays than all natural henna.

Can I use this product along with the Natural-Laxer MIX?
1 Answers
Yes. Natural-Laxer MIX works great with henna coloring. The key is to remember the order. If you're going to use both on the same day, make sure you use the Natural-Laxer MIX before using the henna coloring. If you're going to apply them on different days, make sure to wait at least one week after doing henna coloring to apply Natural-Laxer MIX.

1 Answers
If you Google "removing henna from hair" you'll find some techniques. We can't strongly recommend them though. Some can damage your hair. Some call for using "warm" oil. Oil can get hot enough to severely burn you. We'd recommend just allowing the henna to fade naturally.

from Bellevue, WA asked:
February 3, 2016
Hello, I have purchased this color, the Black and Dark brown. I mixed the two to achieve soft black color that I was successful with. However the color only lasted two to three weeks the most. I am a guy and have been using traditional colors all my life. My wife gets Henna applied at a salon, she waits for 6 hours before she washes off but her color works for longer than a month. I have tried sitting for two hours with the color on before washing it off but it still lasted for 2 weeks. I have also tried using Cider instead of water and still no difference. What needs to be done so the color stays on for at least a month? Thanks
1 Answers
Of course we have no way of knowing what the stylist is putting on your wife's hair or the process she is using. Most people get 4-6 weeks with our henna, but your mileage may vary. If you follow the directions and use Apple Cider Vinegar (not Cider), that should give you the best results. Using something like our HydraCap to keep the moisture and heat in longer might help as well. Our product only uses a minimal amount of dye to be as safe and close to natural as possible while still providing gray coverage. Even at two weeks coverage versus a month or a little longer with a salon treatment, our product is probably a better value. I hope this helps.

from TN asked:
July 10, 2015
If the Henna was applied and it did not take as I was expecting it to can I re-do it immediately or do I have to wait for a period of X amount of time? Can I add more Apple Cider Vinegar or water then it mentions on the container to liquefy it more or does it have to be more pasty? I ask because it becomes real cakey on my hair before I am done applying it and I thought if it was more liquefied it could be applied easier.. I have noticed in other videos of showing how to apply Henna they wrap either with saran wrap or a shower cap to let Henna set longer, is that necessary with your product? Should I leave the Henna on my hair for several hours?
1 Answers
Yes it is safe to re-apply immediately. Please add enough liquid to make the product a thin, soupy paste. It should not be chunky or too thick. You want it thin enough to smooth through out your hair evenly but not to run down your face and neck. A shower cap or something to keep the product from drying is highly recommended. You do not need to leave it on for several hours. 90 minutes is enough.

I want to use Henna to color my gray that is in my hair.(I'm tired of using chemical hair coloring and want to go natural) I read where this is natural, chemical free except for about 3% dye that is not chemical free. Is this product in a jar ready to use or is similar to this product where I have to add stuff? http://www.mehandi.com/shop/graybundles/index.html I have never used Henna and a bit hesitant because I have curly, half way down my back length hair and how does one accomplish doing this alone? Is this product for all hair types or basically only for african ameircan hair types? The salon locator on this website, do those salons use the Henna hair coloring to do someones hair if I do not feel brave enough to use the product myself? Is the hair coloring for dummies, meaning could I really mess it us being a newbie and if i have to do it myself? I went to an Indian Henna Hair Salon in my area and they told me that the Henna does not cover gray well and it would turn red, I thought if anyone that nationality would know their Henna. HELP!!! :-)
1 Answers
The product is all inclusive. You will need to use water or apple cider vinegar to make the paste. You would probably need at least two if not three jars to cover that much hair. You need to be able to get the paste throughout all of your hair. The product is for all hair types. The salon locator on our site is salons that do natural hair. It is likely that they would be willing and able to apply henna, but you would have to check with them individually. It pretty much is hair coloring for dummies. Henna will not damage your hair or scalp. You can't over process it. It's very easy to do. Our product, for Gray Coverage, as you noted has a small amount of dye. It does cover gray very well.

My hair is naturally black . Can I use another color besides black?
1 Answers
If your hair is (still) naturally black, you can use any color henna to get the effects of henna- smoothing and softening of the hair and general conditioning. You will probably not notice any change in color if your hair is truly black. Many people have very, very dark brown hair which appears black in some lights. Our black is truly black. When applied to dark brown hair, it will make it black. Using any color other than black will provide a slight tint or highlights that may be visible in some light. Henna does not lift color. It will never make your hair any shades lighter than it starts off as.

Henna coats the hair and is a temporary color. It can be removed by certain chemicals. So, depending on what is in your face cleanser, it could remove henna. Our Natural-Colors for Gray Coverage contains a small amount of dye, so it is possible it could last longer.

Natural-Colors for Gray Coverage does contain a small amount of dye to provide coverage for those stubborn grays. Those who are sensitive to hair dyes should be aware of this fact. We recommend a skin test before applying this product to your hair and scalp. If you are particularly sensitive to dyes, we recommend Natural-Colors (the one that does NOT say for Gray Coverage).

As I am trying to stay away from chemicals now and allow my hair to grow back would this product be harmful to my hair? With my current hair length I have approximately 75% gray coverage.
1 Answers
This product is 97% natural henna. There is a small amount of dye which helps cover gray. It is as natural of a hair color you can get that will also effectively cover gray. Henna can actually be helpful to the texture of the hair, particularly gray hair which tends to be more coarse.

Hello, I've read so many reviews about the color being too dark. I'm not sure what color to get, my hair is dark brown. I don't want my hair to turn out black with the dark brown henna. Suggestions please?
1 Answers
The dark brown will not make your hair black, it will make it very dark brown. The black color will make your hair black. Some people who have dark brown hair actually think it's black until they dye if black and realize it is actually very dark brown. You could try starting with a lighter shade and if it's not dark enough, covering with the darker color.

1 Answers
1.) You can apply Natural-Colors immediately after a permanent color treatment. No wait time is necessary. 2.) After applying Natural-Colors, it's best to wait several shampoos (or co-poos) before applying a permanent color. The reason for this is to allow the Natural-Colors to wear off of the hair shaft so that the permanent color can break through and penetrate the hair shaft.

Are there any chemicals in Natural-Colors for Gray Coverage?
1 Answers
Natural-Colors for Gray Coverage contains less than 3% of a dye (after preparation). Recently, there have been reports that some chemical hair dyes might be linked to ovarian and breast cancer. This link is controversial. And, you know we don't like to perpetuate unproven rumors. It appears that at least some reputable professionals are concerned about this link. It looks like the greatest risk is to hair care professionals (who handle the products on a regular basis) and, if there is a link, it's weak at best. Darker colors and black are considered more risky because the chemicals in them are used at higher concentrations. Use of Natural-Colors for Gray Coverage minimizes potential risk from the use of the chemicals in permanent hair coloring products by using the dyes at a very low concentration.

Will shampooing and conditioning your hair after right after applying this inhibit the color from covering gray hair? And what do I put in the henna? Some have suggested an egg, olive oil and apple cider but what amount? And how long do I leave it in? Is 90 minutes enough? Thanks! My hair in thin fine caucasian.
1 Answers
Please shampoo before the application of the henna, not after. After the application you will rinse until the water runs clear, then condition. Using apple cider vinegar in place of water will give better adherence of the henna. 60-90 minutes is sufficient time for the product to set properly. All other ingredients are best not used when applying henna. No eggs or olive oil please.
