Herbal Hair Dyes by Lady Henna

Herbal Hair Dyes by Lady Henna Dried and shredded leaves of the henna plant have been used as a natural hair dye in India, Pakistan, North Africa and many Arabic countries for centuries. Henna allows to achieve different shades of read, but it can be mixed with other natural dyes such as indigo for a wider range of shades, from blond to brown and black. And you don't even have to mix them yourself! Lady Henna offers herbal hair dyes in several shades.

The henna powder is made from dried leaves of the plant called Lawsonia inermis. It's also known as the henna tree, the Egyptian privet and the mignonette tree. Henna is native to western and southern Asia, northern Africa and northern Australasia. Leaves for making henna are collected during flowering. They are dried and ground into a powder which is immediately packaged in a vacuum sealed bag to protect the dye from humidity and oxidation (natural hair dyes are more sensitive to storage conditions than chemical ones).

It might be interesting to know that henna powder made from upper leaves is typically used for mehndi (traditional body art) because these leaves have a higher concentration of pigment. And powder made from lower leaves is used as a hair dye. Henna powder for hair can be ground less fine than henna powder for mehndi, but that's not always the case. The finer the powder, the easier it is to make a lump-free paste and apply it to your hair evenly.

As we've already mentioned above, pure henna powder helps to achieve different shades of red. The resulting hair colour may vary from bright orange to dark copper depending on several factors such as the quality of henna and the original colour of the hair. But if you mix henna with other natural dyes (indigo, hibiscus, cassia, coffee, etc.), you can achieve a wider range of hues, from light red (practically blond) to dark brown and black.

However, mixing different dyes in the right proportions to achieve the colour you want isn't an easy task. One mistake, and you have undesirable hair colour that you can't cover using chemical dyes because the results of mixing chemical hair dyes with natural ones can be unpredictable. Luckily, with herbal hair dyes by Lady Henna you don't have to experiment. All you have to do is buy one of the brand's dyes, apply it and enjoy the result.

The main advantage of henna and other herbal hair dyes as compared to chemical dyes is that henna not only doesn't damage the hair but also helps to take care of it. Colouring with henna helps to make your hair softer, stronger and shinier. Lady Henna's hair dyes are additionally enriched with other Indian herbs such as amla (Indian gooseberry), China rose, shikakai, soapnut, Indian madder (manjistha) and bhringraj (false daisy). These Ayurvedic plants enhance the conditioning effect of henna. Besides, natural hair dyes are free of ammonia, hydrogen peroxide and other aggressive ingredients that might damage the hair, irritate the scalp and cause allergic reactions.

Hair dyes by Lady Henna are packaged in small, tightly sealed sachets. The number of sachets you need to use will depend on the length of your hair. If you have short hair and only need one or two sachets, the rest of dye can be stored until you need to colour your hair again.

There are several more things you need to know about henna based hair dyes. Firstly, you need to leave them on for a bit longer than chemical dyes.
