Hair still shiny, and more healthy weeks later!
OK, this takes much longer than the hair color I’ve used for years, however, it’s worth waiting two hours for it to take. You can tell the difference when coloring without chemicals: Your hair doesn’t dry out; it stays shiny. and it lasts for weeks — albeit as with all of the hair dyes I’ve used, the gray doesn’t stay colored until your next scheduled coloring. That said, because there are no chemicals, I had no problem in applying a touch-up half way through my next coloring.While dark brown is too dark for me, I do like my hair a little darker than the medium brown, so I ordered the dark brown. When it arrives, I plan to add a little of the dark powder to the medium brown powder I already have.For people like me with thin, baby-fine hair that really suffers from chemical dyes, it’s the best option. All in all, I now plan to keep using chemical-free hair coloring, and would recommend others try it. After all, you have nothing to lose but the chemicals.Update 2/25/13: Got the dark brown, and mixed it with the medium brown (1 part dark to 3 parts medium). The color turned out perfectly, and my hair looks better than ever. The color is a darkish brown, but not too dark. This time I left the color on for nearly three hours while working on my computer, so will see if it lasts longer.
I can’t really tell the difference
I mixed this henna and let it sit for about 12 hours to let the color develop. I mixed it with dark tea, sweet almond oil, and a little bit of apple cider vinegar. I applied it to a section of my hair and let it sit for 3 hours. I applied it to a section where I have a lot of gray action. After I washed it out, it didn’t seem to cover the gray at all. I really wanted to like this product, but it doesn’t seem to do what I need it to do; blend my gray hairs. I will update my review after I do a few more experiences with the product.
New to this
As the title says, I’m all new to this! I’ve gotten highlights in high school, first time was odd and I had to tell them I wanted streaks from then on. For a total of 3 times. Then I wanted to go blonde, I have medium brown hair, store bought box dye well it turned gold, yeah not pretty and then I had to wait and went for dark brown, which turned my hair black inside and red out in the sunlight. That was the last time I ever colored my hair with box dye!! So when I started getting white hairs at 22/23 yrs old I plucked them, then I found out, not a good idea, so I would color them with mascera when going out. I kept finding more of them and I got natural highlights from white hairs, so I wanted to go medium to dark brown. I really didn’t want to go to a salon because of cost and it can dry out your hair. So glad that I learned about henna and that it is really good for your hair. Well I did my hair color with this and the light brown, I forgot to mark them and so I got more in of one color then the other, I’m thinking it’s light brown, I will mark them for now on. I really like it, and for doing it myself, not so bad. I watched a lot of youtube videos on henna, and I found two that I’m trying out on applying, the first was to pile it on the head, well it was a mess and I still smell spinach in the shower, the next time april 3rd I’ll do it in four sections with all the hair down when I’m done. They said it smells like hay, so I wasn’t expecting spinach to me. I’m really glad I started out with lighter, like they say you can’t go lighter but you can always go darker. So I’m working my way towards a little darker then my natural color.
Unfortunately I had a skin sensitivity to this product.I have used the red wine several times and some how after months of using Henna King I have developed an allergic reaction. Sucks.Also, I had mixed one medium brown with a red wine and the brown did not show up.
I tried this because my previous henna didn’t seem to be offered–
I liked the ease of application, but I don’t think the coverage was very good, and now only about 3.5 weeks later the color has faded. That wouldn’t have happened with the henna I have used before. I have dark hair with a few greys and I expected a reddish stain on them, but it was weak.
Not So Good for Gray Hair
I have long thick hair, brown with some gray, mostly at temples. After using Henna Maiden twice — the first time with a mix of 3 parts medium brown and one part light brown, the second with only medium brown, I can’t recommend this product for gray hair. After keeping the henna pack on for 4 hours, the resulting color was fine, hair soft and in good condition, but gray hairs were still gray.I mixed the henna powder with strong camomile tea and a tablespoon of olive oil into a thick paste and had no trouble applying it and the smell isn’t bad, just very earthy. You must be careful about the shampoo and conditioner you use or henna will wash out. I use liquid castile soap for shampoo and L’Oreal EverCreme conditioner. Color lasts at least six weeks.
love this henna
It’s easy to use doesn’t have an over powering odor most henna has, washes out fairly easy and when I use it for some reason I don’t need to shampoo so much. Great product
so far so good
it shipped in decent time. loved the packaging… the gloves that came were massively too big LOL had to have my bf tape them to my wrists ha. they were so cheap so my fingers ended up breaking through. thats not a big deal though at least not for me. the product was a first time for me. i was nervous BUT it does work. the color came out a bit redder than the medium brown but not by much and its likely due to having a strawberry blonde chemical base before i started as i have been dying my hair with boxed dyes. the smell lingers for days though, and after having it on your head for three hours youre likely to get a bit of a headache that lingers along with the scent. very earthy. it is quite messy and i had to pull down my shower curtain to clean everything after the first shower. took over a half hour to rinse out. ended up cheating and adding some conditioner as it was tangled and would not rinse from my low back length hair. after i showered i added biosilk because my hair was really too hard to brush out. that made it much easier. my friends have all been asking if i would try this again, on day three shower three wash one, i would say yes. hoping that the next time the color will be richer and stick better, as i think two bags was just not enough to get full coverage. im going to give it one more go at the end of the month and see how i like it then, come back and review it on how well the color holds and how a second dying goes over. thanks.
No chemicals-that’s what I love!
I have been using this product for the past few months. It takes some getting used to and haven’t mastered the perfect combination of vinegar and/or salt yet. I am happy that I am not putting harmful chemicals on my hair/scalp. My hair feels softer and shinier and I get compliments about it often. I will continue to buy this product.
