The henna plant has been used for thousands of years in the Middle East and India to naturally dye hair. Due to its natural properties the result may vary from a bright red to a deep burgundy. For those who use henna solely for conditioning purposes and do not have grey hair, you will notice a very translucent red tint, under the sun. For those who use henna for covering grey hair, the grey will turn into a very distinct bright red, red, or deep burgundy. We recommend that the henna is applied to only dark hair or those who want a natural alternative to hair dye, due to the color your hair turns once it is applied. For those who have naturally dark hair to apply henna, henna is the best hair conditioner of all. It will make your hair heavy, thick and silky.
