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

BROWN HENNA INSTRUCTIONS
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.

- Plastic Sealable Baggie, 2

How to Do a Strand Test:
- Measure out: Light Brown: 2 tsp Henna, 1 tsp Indigo;
Medium Brown: 2 tsp Henna, 2 tsp Indigo; Dark Brown: 1 tsp Henna, 2 tsp Indigo
- Please read the "How to Mix & Apply Brown 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, empty the Henna powder and, if applicable, stir in apple cider
vinegar or lemon juice. Then stir in enough black tea (or other liquid) to achieve the
consistency of yogurt. Cover the bowl in plastic wrap, pressing to remove any excess
air, and let sit the mixture for 8 - 12 hours at room temperature.
- Empty the Indigo powder into a clean bowl. Mix with
warm filtered water until it is the consistency of yogurt.
- Add Indigo mixture into the set henna mixture. Mix thoroughly and use a little water if
needed to get the yogurt consistency again.
- 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 light source.
- To achieve Brown, mix in Indigo after letting the
Henna sit with enough water to get the right consistency.

Mixing & Application
- Pour bag labeled LT/MD/DK Brown Henna 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
- Slowly add black tea to 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.

or lemon juice. Do not use more than 3 tablespoons, as the oil can prevent the color

- 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 color to a darker brown
- red, which will signal the dye release.

bag labeled LT/MD/DK Brown Indigo into a clean bowl and stir in enough filtered warm water to make it a

hairline and ears to prevent skin staining. Using gloved hands, apply Brown Henna to
clean, dry hair. (It can be applied to towel - dried hair but not wet).

over the plastic to trap body heat. The key is to keep the Brown henna moist and

henna rinsing process, especially if you used a lot of apple cider vinegar or lemon

Important Note About Chemical Dyes
Our Brown Henna Hair Color is 100% pure plant dye. There are no chemicals, metallic salts, or
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, 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
