Tips on Locking in Henna Hair Dye Color
Everyone so often we get a customer that has a hard time with either roots or color fading to fast. Please keep in mind that our hair dye is Ayurveda hair dye in most colors.
By adding natural conditioners your hair will grow faster and roots will come in quicker, however the overall healthy effect is well worth it.
Many call this hair stubborn grays, but in fact the hair is just not as porous as most. Henna dye molecules are much smaller than indigo molecules and can adhere to just about anything or any-ones hair. Indigo on the other hand being larger can be more difficult and wash out easier.
A simple way to get past this is by using 2 household ingredients. Vinegar and salt. Any type of vinegar or salt will work.
What you will need:
1 and 1/2 cup tap water
1 table spoon of vinegar
1 teaspoon of salt
Mix salt, vinegar and water together until salt dissolves. Mix this water in with powder until a thick pudding like consistency and apply to clean dry or damp hair.
Leave on one hour, no longer than 1.5 hours and rinse. Shampoo 24 hours later, no longer than 48 hours (waiting longer shampoo can cause your hair to oxidize in to multiple colors).
This will help the color bind to your hair and stop bleeding on red red.
