FAQs

1. HOW LONG DOES THE COLOR LAST?
Henna is a permanent hair dye. It does not washes out but fades over time. It will stay vibrant for 4-6 weeks and then you can layer the color all you want. Henna hair dye dye works like a varnish over your natural hair color, rather than chemically changing it, because of this, emerging roots are far subtler than after using alternative synthetic dyes.

2. IF YOU HAVE NATURAL BLACK HAIR WITH SOME GREY WHAT COLOR WOULD IT MAKE THE BLACK/GREY HAIR ONCE APPLIED?

Hi from Henna Cosmetics!

Since our natural Indigo powder is a blue dye, applying it directly to your hair will leave an intriguing blue tint. However, to get darker shades like brown, auburn or black, you need to prime your hair with our natural Henna hair dye treatment before using indigo powder.

Follow these 2 proven steps to get the benefits of natural hair dyes - no chemicals and hair conditioning:

STEP 1 - TREAT YOUR HAIR WITH HENNA.
In a mixing bowl, soak our Henna Powder (100 gms for short hair, 200 gms for shoulder-length hair, 300 gms for really long hair) with Tea Water or Coffee Water overnight as adding coffee makes the red color of henna more visible. Add only a dash of Lemon Juice if you wish.
Add Yoghurt or Egg for additional conditioning.
The next day, apply the paste on clean, product-free hair for 45-60 minutes, depending on preferred intensity.
Rinse thoroughly only with water, repeating as many times as you intuitively need. Do not use shampoo.
STEP 2 - TREAT YOUR HAIR WITH INDIGO.
After rinsing your hair, let them dry.
Mix the Indigo Powder (100 gms for short hair, 200 gms for shoulder-length hair, 300 gms for long hair) in warm water to prepare a paste.
Apply on your hair, using gloves if applying with your hands, or a spatula.
Leave on for 45 minutes, or more, depending on preferred intensity. It’s advisable to keep it on hair for up to 2 hours to get rich black color.
Rinse thoroughly with water.
Wash your hair with a cleansing shampoo the next day.
Following these two steps will result in the desired natural black hair color. You can use this method to color your hair twice-thrice a month.

2. Fill the bigger one with about 2 cups of water and bring to a boil

What is the difference between Tulsi leaves and Tulsi Pachang?

Tulsi & Tulsi Panchang are both Holy Basil, used widely in Ayurveda ancestral medicine. Some customers prefer their teas or drinks from one or the other and find Tulsi Panchang to have a different slightly bitter taste; however, it's based in taste. Botanically, both plants belong to the same Family.
