History of Henna

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

Should I try a test strand first?
Yes. See Henna test strand instructions in suggested use.

Can Henna be used on grey or white hair?
If you have over 10% grey, Rainbow Research suggest doing a "test strand" first. The following formulas work best:

  • Medium Brown Henna + brewed coffee + apple cider vinegar
  • Dark Brown Henna + brewed coffee + apple cider vinegar
  • Light Brown Henna + Ceylon Tea or Black China Tea or Darjeeling Tea + apple cider vinegar
  • Dark Brown Henna + Medium Brown Henna (50% of each) + brewed coffee + apple cider vinegar - works well on more than 10% grey

Can I Henna after a perm?
After a Perm Rainbow Research suggest that you wait 3-5 shampooings. This will insure that the entire chemical residue is removed prior to doing the Henna application.

Can I Henna before a perm?
Yes, Follow instructions below to remove Henna coating first.

Can I use a Chemical Dye or Bleach over hair with Henna on it?
No. First you must remove the Henna coating from the hair shaft. The Henna coating is naturally removed after 2-3 weeks of regular shampooing. If Henna was applied less then 2-3 weeks before see removal instructions below.

What is the best way to remove Henna?
To help remove Henna from the hair shaft, apply warm mineral oil to the hair. Leave on 20-25 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Shampoo out. This procedure is good prior to using a perm or chemical tint/color.
Is Henna safe to use over a chemical tint?
Yes. If the hair is in excellent condition, Rainbow Henna can be used over a chemical tint. However, this is not its purpose. Color results may very until new growth comes in fully. Henna should not be used over bleached or white hair.

Can Hair be lightened after Henna?
No. The Henna color will remain on the hair even if high lift blonde tints or bleaches are used.

Will Henna lighten hair?
No. Henna does not contain any lightening chemicals. Blonde Henna brings out yellow and golden brown highlights. Marigold Blonde Henna brings out gold and yellow highlights. Both add shine and body to grey hair.

How often can I use Henna?
Neutral Henna can be used on any type of hair every 4 weeks. All other shades can be used every 4 to 6 weeks. If color fades quicker than 4-6 weeks it is safe to re-apply sooner.

Can Henna powders be mixed?
Yes. You can mix powders together to create your own formula. Mix powders well before adding liquid.

Suggested Use

Preparation

Rainbow Henna may be applied on wet or dry hair, but it is important that the hair be clean. If you wish to shampoo first, towel dry hair before application. Apply cream, oil, or Vaseline around the hairline, ears, and neck to avoid staining your skin.

Directions

Pour a 4 oz. jar of Rainbow Henna into a glass or plastic bowl. Gradually add boiling water, coffee or tea to the Henna powder. Use a wooden or plastic spoon to mix thoroughly to a creamy soup-like consistency, (more liquid can be added if mixture is too thick). For Rainbow Neutral Henna, mix 2 oz. (1/2 jar) with boiling water.

Rainbow Henna is filled by weight. A 4 oz. jar is equal to an 8 oz. cup by volume.

**For best results with Henna on Grey hair see instructions below**

Directions for use on Grey or White Hair

Pour a 4 oz. jar of Rainbow Henna into a glass or plastic bowl. Gradually add boiling coffee or tea to the Henna powder. See special recipes and hints below for exact Coffee & Tea use. Add 1-2 Tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar. Use a wooden or plastic spoon to mix thoroughly to a creamy soup-like consistency, (more liquid can be added if mixture is too thick).
For Rainbow Neutral Henna on Grey Hair: Mix 2 oz. (1/2 jar) with boiling water, do not use coffee and vinegar.

Best Recipes for Grey Hair:
Dark Brown Henna + Coffee + 1-2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar = Dark Brown
3 parts Black + 1 Part Medium Brown + Coffee + 1-2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar = Dark Brown
3 Parts Dark Brown + 1 Part Medium Brown + Coffee + 1-2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar = Medium/Dark Brown < BR > 3 Parts Black + 1 Part Dark Brown + Coffee + 1-2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar = Darkest Brown

Special Recipes and Hints

Substitute Coffee or Tea for Water to add these effects:

Coffee – Use for Best Results on Grey Hair to help tone down red tones, deepens brown-red tones, & cover grey. Use brewed, black coffee or espresso (not instant or decaffeinated). After coffee or espresso is brewed, bring to a boil. Mix as directed above.

Teas- To have the following effects take place, substitute tea for water. Let tea steep for 20-30 minutes, and then bring to a boil. Mix as directed above.

  • Ceylon, Black China or Darjeeling Teas will help tone down red & deepen brown-red tones on Dark Brown, Med Brown, Burgundy, Mahogany & Sherry.
  • Ceylon, Black China or Darjeeling Teas will add gold highlights to Light Brown Henna.
  • Red Zinger Tea enriches red tones in Burgundy, Sherry, Mahogany, Dark Brown, Med Brown and Red Henna.
  • Chamomile Tea brightens and adds highlights to Neutral, Blonde, or Marigold Blonde Henna.

**Remember the water, tea or coffee should be brought to a boil. The amount you use is up to you. More can be added if the mixture thickens. Apply Henna while warm, not hot. The electric Thermo Heat Cap can improve color and conditioning.

Apple Cider Vinegar – To help all colors hold on grey hair, add 1-2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar to Henna mixture.

Lemon Juice – To lighten blonde shades, add 1-2 tbsp. lemon juice to Henna mixture.

To Deepen Red Shades – Red, Sherry, Mahogany, or Burgundy can be deepened by mixing a darker shade. For example, 3 oz. (3/4 jar) Mahogany + 1 oz. (1/4 jar) Dark Brown = Dark Auburn.

Dry or Damaged Hair – Add 1 Egg, or 1-2 tbsp. of Olive Oil, or 1-2 tbsp of Plain Yogurt to the Henna mixture. These natural ingredients not only condition, but help with the application and rinsing processes. Choose any 1 of the 3 options listed above for similar results.

Application

Wear plastic or rubber gloves to avoid staining your hands.

  1. Section hair front to back and ear to ear. Take 1 inch partings in the sections.
  2. Method 1 - Begin at the scalp and paint on the Henna with a tint brush from roots to ends, or use hands
  3. Method 2 - Begin at scalp and apply Henna with gloved hands. Packing it on as if you were putting a mud pack on your head.
  4. Continue until all the hair is thickly coated with the Henna mixture.
  5. Place a cotton or tissue band around the hairline. Cover the hair with a plastic bag or plastic wrap and old towel to help maintain heat.

Timing

For best results use a Heat Lamp, or Thermo Heat Cap:
Leave on as follows:

  • Black, Red, Sherry, Mahogany, Burgundy, Dark Brown, Medium Brown, and Copper –with heat 45- 60 minutes; without heat 60-90 minutes.
  • Strawberry Blonde, Blonde, Marigold Blonde, Light Brown, and Neutral –with heat 30 minutes; without heat 45-60 minutes.

When timing is completed, rinse thoroughly with hot water, and then rinse with cool water. Follow with Rainbow Henna Shampoo, or any mild natural shampoo without essential oils. Rinse thoroughly and style. Leaving the Henna on longer then recommended is not advised, results may vary.

By Rebecca (Humphrey , NE )

Love this product, but it does make a mess. I love that I can color my hair safely and naturally and without the salon price! I have dark brown/black hair and use the persian dk. brown. It does cover/"take out" the gray, but not as a dark brown. It's more of a reddish/yellowish highlight and I love it. My one complaint is that it only lasts about 3-4 weeks for me.
