If you ask us, henna is the ultimate hair treatment. Coating the hair shaft, it helps protect, condition and give a lot of shine. It also cleanses the skin from bacteria, microbes and fungus, which helps limit dandruff and refresh the scalp.
Henna powder is made from the leaves of a flowering plant called Lawsonia inermis. Surrounded by legends, beliefs, and millennia of use on hair and skin, the powder is first and foremost used as a gentle natural dye.
To properly colour the hair, henna should be heated and mixed with water, then kept warm on the hair for a few hours with a cloth or towel. Applied cold and rinsed off after twenty minutes, our henna infusion doesn't leave this dyeing effect. It is intended to give shine and eventually highlight the natural hues of the hair.
