NATURAL HENNA

CENTIFOLIA

Coats and strengthens hair

Adds volume and shine
All hair types
100% natural, pure henna
Harvested by hand

Pure, the Centifolia natural henna naturally colours hair, giving it tones ranging from coppery red to warm auburn. This henna can be used to colour grey hair.
This henna is an exceptional natural treatment that will add volume, strength and shine to all hair types. It particularly purifies oily and flaky scalps.
This powder is derived from the leaves of the plant, which are hand-harvested and naturally dried in the sun.
Natural hair colour lets you create tone-on-tone colour or darken your colour by 2 or 3 shades, but it will not lighten your hair.
With natural hair colour, each person’s results are unique: they depend on your base colour, leave-on time, your hair’s porosity, and the amount of grey hair.

You can use tinted powders to bring out your natural highlights.

Preparation instructions :
In a large bowl, gradually add warm water to the powders until you have a relatively thick paste. Do not use metal utensils. Before applying to your hair, cover the mixture with plastic film and let sit for one to two hours so the colour can develop.

Approximate quantities to be used :
For short hair : 50 to 100g of powder
For medium-length (shoulder-length) hair : 150 to 200g of powder
For long hair (mid-back) : 200 to 250g of powder
For very long hair (hip-length) : 300 to 500g of powder

How to apply :
Apply a thick layer of the mixture preferably to unwashed hair, strand by strand. When hair is thoroughly coated, wrap it all in plastic film and let set. The leave-on time will vary considerably depending on your hair's porosity and colour and the desired result (from one to 12 hours).
Rinse hair thoroughly until all residues have been removed. The final colour result will appear two to three days after application, which is the time required for the colour to oxidise.

Beauty tip :
For fine, sensitised or dry hair, you are advised to add 1 to 2 tablespoons of organic vegetable oil (castor, coconut, argan) or slightly melted shea butter to your mixture since henna can slightly dry out the hair fibre.
We recommend that you use the Centifolia no-rinse lotion with raspberry vinegar which, thanks to its acidity, "closes the hair cuticle" and adds shine.

Precautions for use :

Do not apply henna or dye powder to hair that has been permed or chemically colour-treated in the last two months.
Before colouring your hair, apply a detox mask.
Protect areas of your skin likely to be coloured by henna or dye powder by applying a thick layer of a moisturising cream or vegetable oil (top of forehead, ear contour).
Wear gloves when preparing and a
