The leaves of the henna plant is traditionally used in Northern Ghana as body art, as a natural hair dye, to help strengthen the hair resulting in luxurious hair. It can also be used to condition the hair.
The intensity of the colour depends on how long the mixture is left to dry during application. Henna is not a permanent hair dye
Locally known as "Lelle", it is pure - NO CHEMICALS, NO EXTRA ADDITIVES - just 100% plant goodness.
We import this directly from Ghana and recommend this .pdf book for further information

Our henna is:
* body art quality [BAQ] * pure
* unbleached
* sifted
* contains no additives

Your liquid has to be warm:
* to release the dye, you need to add acidic liquid [lemon, vinegar]
* brewed coffee or tea will help achieve dark brown

* For grey strands, we recommend adding amla to your henna mix
* You can also add hibiscus tea to help boost shine.

Always wear gloves when working with henna to avoid dyeing your fingers :)
