A powdered leaf that is traditionally used to dye the hair and the skin red. Henna has been used by women for thousands of years to dye the hair, the fingernails, the palms and the soles. Men too used it to obtain a red hue in their beards. It comes from a small, attractive shrub with leaves of a pale green colour. Its white flowers give off a sharp odour. But it is the leaves which are dried and crushed into a greenish-yellow powder and then used as the colourant.
Neal’s Yard Remedies is committed to looking after the environment so we will dispatch your herb order in bulk to reduce the amount of packaging needed.
RENEWABLY SOURCED AND COMPOSTABLE
We’re moving to a new eco-friendly Natureflex™ film for our clear herb bags. This renewable, plant-sourced bag is made from PEFC/FSC® certified wood pulp and meets both industrial and home composting standards.
USE TIME AND TIME AGAIN
Kept cool and dry, your Natureflex bag will last and be useful for general purpose, such as storage of dried goods. You can bring your Natureflex™ bag, or any other clean container of your preference, on your next visit to be re-filled with dried herbs.
TIP Gently wipe the inside clean with a dry cloth to remove any residual herb dust before using again.
⟩How to use
For short or cropped hair use 25g of Henna, for shoulder-length hair use 50g of Henna, for long hair use 75g of Henna.
Mix the crushed-leaf powder with hot water to produce a 'henna pack'.
Apply this to the hair as a paste. Leave for 30 - 40 minutes before rinsing thoroughly. Alternately, to obtain a more intense colouring, wrap a towel around the head and leave for 1 - 4 hours, or even all night.
Henna has a thickening effect which adds body, lustre and highlights to your hair. Instead of just water, henna can be mixed with a strong, hot tea to bring out more red or with a cup of coffee to dull the red somewhat. For a really bright red, mix with All Spice.
It is advisable to dye a cutting of your hair before you use it for the first time.
