USING HENNA TO COVER GRAY HAIR




What makes hair turn gray?
The cells responsible for giving your hair color stop producing melanin. Hydrogen peroxide sometimes builds up in the follicles and bleaches your color. A deficiency in B12 can lead to premature graying. Pituitary problems and thyroid  problems also cause premature graying. 



UNDERSTAND THAT ANYTHING TAKEN TO PREVENT GRAY HAIR WILL ONLY AFFECT NEW HAIR GROWING FROM THE SCALP.  THE ONLY THING YOU CAN DO ABOUT YOUR CURRENT GRAY HAIR IS COLOR OVER IT WITH SOME TYPE OF PRODUCT, WHETHER THAT IS HAIR DYE, HENNA, BLACK TEA, ETC.

Covering your gray hair naturally
Most people resort to using hair dye to cover their gray hair. But hair dye can be really toxic. A healthier alternative is to use henna to cover your gray hair. Henna can be tricky so do a thorough research before you start applying henna to your hair. When using henna you are limited to red coloring. The red tones will vary depending on your hair color and the quality of the henna you use. 


Important tips about henna
  • Henna does NOT lighten your hair like hair dye can. 
  • Henna adds color to your hair 
  • Choose a henna which is certified high pure lawsone content. Lawsone is the only ingredient you want on your bag of henna. 
  • Pure henna is a green color, if it is any other color you do not have pure henna.
  • Henna is permanent. Once you get your desired color, only touch up your new growth. Applying to many layers of henna, can lead to chronic dry hair. 


Using indigo 
  • Indigo is used to cover your gray hair. It will make your dark hair shiny black with reddish highlights over the gray. 
  • Henna and indigo are two separate products, from natural plant sources.
  • To get a rich black color you first apply henna, then go back and apply the indigo.
  • Indigo is a two step application process. 
  • In general most people do this over a two day period.



Cassia Obovata will turn your gray hair a yellow color.
