Neutral Henna is completely colorless and
is perfect for anyone looking to add shine and definition to their
hair. Neutral Henna will bring out the natural brilliance of your hair
color by conditioning deeply and treating the hair follicle. The neutral
henna is also a fantastic curl elongater for people looking for more
definition and length.
Use as often as
desired to maintain healthy, attractive gloss of your hair.
Morrocco Method Neutral
Henna (also known
as Cassia obovata, Cassia, or Senna) is used strictly for the conditioning
benefits of henna, minus the coloration. However, if you leave it in longer than
directed or use other ingredients, Neutral Henna might leave a subtle yellow
tint. To best avoid this, explicitly follow the instructions below. Dyeing your
hair with chemicals after using Neutral Henna might yield unpredictable results
if you do not wait 6-8 weeks after a Neutral Henna treatment. This is because
Neutral Henna makes your hair less porous and less susceptible to dyes.
How to Mix & Apply Neutral Henna
- Mixing Bowl (wooden or glass preferable)
- Mixing Spoon (wooden preferable)
- Measuring Spoon/Cup
- Gloves (vinyl/rubber)
- Plastic Wrap -OR- Plastic Shower Cap
- OPTIONAL: Fabric Cap (beanie, ski cap, etc.)
- Neutral Henna Kit
- Filtered Water, 2 cups
Mixing & Application
Put Neutral Henna powder into a mixing bowl. Stir in filtered water a little at a time while mixing, until it is the consistency of yogurt. The mixture should not drip from the spoon but should still be easily
spreadable. You may not need 2 cups to achieve this.
Do not let sit. Apply immediately to your hair after mixing. Section your hair, put a towel around your shoulders, and apply Euro Oil to your hairline and ears to prevent skin staining. Using gloved hands, apply henna to clean, dry hair. (It can be applied to towel-dried hair but not wet).
Wrap hair with plastic wrap or put on a shower cap. Optionally, put on a fabric cap over the plastic to trap body heat. The key is to keep the paste moist and warm.
Leave in your hair for only 1 hour. Do not leave it in overnight.
Unwrap your hair and rinse with water only. Use a drain catcher to prevent possible clogging. Use Pearl Essence Creme Rinse or a few drops of Euro Oil to aid in the henna rinsing process. The Morrocco Method Scalp Massager may also help in removing the henna.
For optimal results, repeat monthly.
Important Note About Chemical Dyes
Our Light Blonde Henna Hair Color is 100% pure plant dye. There are no chemicals, metallic salts, or PPD. Our henna hair color is the safest form of hair dye you can use, and it even has healthy benefits for your hair. You can safely use henna on previously chemically dyed hair, but we suggest waiting 6-8 weeks after your last dye job to allow for
But if choose to continue with chemical dyes after applying henna, you'll need to wait 6-8 weeks until it fades. It won't "burn" your hair, which is a reaction to chemically-adulterated henna, but it can give you unpredictable results. Plant dyes don't lift easily out of your hair, leaving the end color unpredictable, and it fades faster because henna makes your hair less porous.
Going lighter cannot be done with a box dye, and the amount of developer you will need to lift the henna (in Light Blonde, it is actually Cassia
obovata) will damage your hair to the point where it won't take dyes well. When dying your hair with henna and indigo, it will only lift the henna, and not the indigo, giving you green hair. The amount of chemicals you need to remove indigo from your hair will make your hair too damaged to hold any dye at all. You can, however, dye your hair the same color or darker.
