Henna - copper hair color and hair treatment (by weight)
Indian natural henna is a powder obtained from the dried and crushed leaves of the traditional Indian plant Lawsonia inermis, which contains a purely natural substance lawson, which binds to hair proteins and creates a copper hue.
In addition, the leaves and seeds of this plant have healing effects. They leave the hair shiny, soft and protect the scalp from dandruff or other skin diseases. Henna thus gives the hair a natural shine and a characteristic red-brown shade. It has a lasting coloring effect without containing ammonia, peroxide, parabens, heavy metals or other chemical additives.
Notice! Before using henna and other natural dyes, it is not recommended to use shampoos and conditioners with silicones, which prevent the penetration of natural pigments into the hair structure. The hair should be clean and free of fixing hardeners and sprays.
Store in a dry and dark place.
