|Henna blocks sold by LUSH cosmetics online|
If you've been natural for even a little while I'm sure you've come across the topic of using henna to add moisturize, add color or shine, and (even) loosen your curl pattern. I haven't been able to use henna yet, but I'm dying for a color change and I think henna may be the way to go.
Here's some quick info about the henna for natural hair.
- Henna is a flowering plant that is often powdered and used to dye the hair, skin, and nails.
- Henna comes is 100% pure and can be bought as such.
- Henna is much healthier for natural hair because PURE henna contains no chemicals.
- Henna only comes in a reddish/brick color. Any other color represented has natural dyes added to the natural product.
- Henna cannot lighten your hair but can add red undertones to hair. The lighter your hair, the brighter the color of your henna result.
