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!
Light Blonde Henna is ideal for creating a natural
sun streaking effect. This natural hair color contains chamomile and marigold
flower to naturally bring out highlights and/or blend graying roots. Please
note: Henna will not lighten naturally dark hair, but can bring out any natural
highlights. Blonde henna will not bleach your hair.
"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.
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.
LIGHT BLONDE HENNA
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
- Plastic Sealable Baggie, 2
- Mixing Spoon (wooden
- Measuring Spoon (wooden
- Gloves (vinyl/rubber)
How to Do a Strand Test:
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 Light Blonde 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.)
- Blonde Henna Kit (1 bag Blonde Henna powder, 1
bag Blonde Tea)
- Warm Filtered water, 3 cups
- Lemon Juice, 2-8 tablespoons
- OPTIONAL: Euro Oil, 1-3 teaspoons
*One Henna Kit is enough for shoulder length
hair. Longer hair may require additional kits.
Mixing & Application
- Boil water and add Blonde Tea. Let steep for
15-30 minutes. Strain out flowers and let the tea cool to room temperature.
- Put Blonde Henna powder into a mixing bowl and
mix in lemon juice. The more you use, the better dye, but the more drying it
can be for your hair.
- Add the brewed Blonde Tea 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
all 3 cups of tea to achieve this.
- Add Euro Oil to mixture, if using. Use more
Euro Oil if you added a lot of lemon juice. Do not use more than 3
teaspoons, as the oil can prevent the color from sticking.
- Cover with plastic wrap, pressing to remove
any excess air, and let sit 8-12 hours. If the environment is cold and/or
higher amounts of lemon juice were used, we suggest letting it sit the full
- 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 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.
- 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. Do not shampoo your hair until 24 hours after
the henna treatment. The full color will appear after 72 hours. This color
will last 6-8 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.
