Description Ingredients Testimonials

Morrocco Method Henna is an all natural hair color with only the purest natural ingredients that provides a deep, rich color while also conditioning your hair and scalp. Morrocco Method is a leader in the henna hair color industry with ZERO chemicals additives or irritants. While many henna hair dyes are marketed as “natural,” they contain harsh metals and toxins. We all know that the term "natural" is being used very loosely these days by many top companies. Morrocco Method continues to use only the purest ingredients in their products to ensure you are receiving a top quality product. Each shade of henna hair color is created using two natural plants: henna (Lawsonia inermis) and indigo (Indigofera tinctoria), with the exception of Blonde Henna. All are 100% plant material and completely chemical free: no metallic salts, no ammonia, no PPD!

"I have tried many henna products over the years and from my personal experience Morrocco Method Henna is the highest quality henna product on the market. Many of the henna products I tried turned my hair orange. If you want the best henna product on the market, you have found it. It's time to switch from hazardous chemical hair dyes to all natural henna hair color. I know you will love Morrocco Method Henna as much as I do". Tanya M Beck. President of Advanced Alternatives Center.

Red Henna is the perfect color for people looking to add subtle red to their natural shade of dark brown, as well as those looking for a natural “redhead” color. This color of henna is particularly beneficial for people dealing with grey coverage. Applied before the brown, this red henna will help the brown color to better adhere to your grey roots. Using a specific ratio of the henna leaf and bark, Morrocco Method offers the finest in chemical-free hair color.

Morrocco Method Henna is 100% chemical free and contains no harsh metals, parabens, or toxins that irritate the hair and scalp. No matter the color of henna, it is deeply nourishing, conditioning and the perfect alternative to harsh chemical hair dyes.

Additional Uses: All Morrocco Method Henna color can be used to safely dye any light-colored natural fabric that you want to subtly darken. i.e. doilies, handkerchiefs, muslin, etc.


Strand Test

A strand test is a good indicator of what to expect when using henna. Apply henna to a hair sample, gathered from your brush or a previous haircut. Unlike regular chemical dye, henna works as a gloss, resulting in a color that is a mix between the dye color and the base color of your hair. Keep in mind, henna takes several days to oxidize, meaning that the final color may become darker in the days following application. Lighter hair types may need to do multiple applications to achieve a darker color. You cannot lighten hair with henna.


  • Small Mixing Bowl (glass or wooden preferable)
  • Plastic Sealable Baggie, 2
  • Mixing Spoon (wooden preferable)
  • Measuring Spoon (wooden preferable)
  • Gloves (vinyl/rubber)

How to Do a Strand Test:

  1. Please read the "How to Mix & Apply Red Henna" instructions below to judge what liquid to use with the henna. If you are using apple cider vinegar or lemon juice, use only 2 tsp worth.
  2. In a small bowl, take 1 tbsp of Red Henna and stir in enough liquid to achieve the consistency of yogurt. Cover the bowl in plastic wrap and let sit for 8-12 hours at room temperature.
  3. Use hair removed from your hairbrush or clippings from a recent haircut. You can snip a lock of hair from the middle of your head as well. Ball it up or attach ends to a piece of tape to hold them together. You need enough hair to be able to discern color difference, so half a handful should be fine. While wearing gloves, coat the strands with the henna mixture, thoroughly saturating them.
  4. Store strands in a plastic bag. Then double bag to prevent dye from seeping through. Keep it on your person, in a pocket for instance, to include body heat as a factor in dye release. Leave in bag for 1-4 hours.
  5. Rinse henna from hair strands and inspect the color. Let strands sit for 72 hours to get the most exact result. View test strands in artificial light and sunlight, as the color does change with the light source.

How to Mix & Apply Red Henna


  • Black Tea, 2 cups strongly brewed and cooled
  • Apple Cider Vinegar, up to 3 tbsp (use raw, unpasteurized for best results) -OR- Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice, up to 3 tbsp
  • Red Henna Kit (1 bag of Red Henna)*
  • OPTIONAL: Morrocco Method Euro Oil, 1-3 tsp
  • OPTIONAL: Clove, Ginger, or Cinnamon, powdered 1-3 tsp (To lessen the smell of henna)

*One Henna Kit is enough for shoulder length hair. Longer hair may require additional kits.

Other Liquids: Black Tea with Apple Cider Vinegar/Lemon Juice is the most common liquid used when mixing henna. However, you may replace it entirely with:

  • Apple or Orange Juice, 2 cups
  • Herbal Tea (chamomile, rosemary, etc.), 2 cups strongly brewed and cooled
  • Filtered Water, 2 cups warmed
  • Filtered Water, 2 cups warmed with 3 tbsp Lemon Juice

Mixing & Application

  1. Pour Red Henna powder from packet into mixing bowl. Add clove, ginger, or cinnamon at this point to lessen smell of henna. Add apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. The more you use of either ingredient, the deeper the end results will be. However, it will also increase the time needed to release the dye and may have a drying effect on the hair and scalp.
  2. Slowly add black tea to Red Henna 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 all 2 cups of tea to achieve this.
  3. Add Euro Oil to mixture. Use more Euro Oil if you added a lot of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. Do not use more than 3 teaspoons, as the oil can prevent the color from sticking.
  4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, pressing to remove any excess air, and let sit for 8-12 hours. If a generous amount of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar were used, we suggest letting it sit the full 12 hours. If the temperature is below 60 degrees, it may take longer than 12 hours. Check the surface for color change from the original green/olive/tan to a darker brown-red, which will signal the dye release.
  5. 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).
  6. 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.
  7. Leave mixture in hair for 1-4 hours. The longer it is left, the more dye will saturate into your hair. Do not leave it in overnight.
  8. 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, especially if you used a lot of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. The Morrocco Method Scalp Massager may also help in removing the henna.
  9. Do not shampoo your hair until 24 hours after the henna treatment. The full color will appear after 72 hours. This color will last 8-12 weeks.

Important Note About Chemical Dyes

Our Red 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 detox.

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 will damage your hair to the point where it won't take dyes well. When dying your hair with henna and indigo (using any of the Browns or Black), 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.
