Light Mountain Natural Hair Color and Conditioner Chestnut -- 4 fl oz
Excellent for Covering Gray Hair
I've enjoyed this hair color for years; I mix this with Light Mountain's Dark Brown henna to achieve my natural hair color. I use distilled hot water and lemon juice to mix it up, cover my hair with plastic wrap and then put on a stocking cap for a minimum of two hours. This is the only hair color that stays on my hair and covers my grays. Another excellent Vitacost find!

Light Mountain Natural Hair Color and Conditioner Chestnut Description
100% Premium Henna
Henna coats each hair shaft with a natural, semi-permanent protein called hennatannic acid. Heat causes the hennatannic acid to cling to the proteins found in the hair (or nails and skin, if desired). Because henna coats and seals the hair shaft, it helps protect the hair from damaging effects of sun, salt, chlorine, wind and pollution in the environment. It can help miminize split ends and acts as “hair insurance” if you spend a lot of time in the sun, surf or wind. In addition to protecting the hair shaft, henna will tighten the hair cuticle and create a more solid surface which reflects light; the result is gleaming, lustrous hair.
Rather than producing dramatic color changes, henna enhances and deepens existing color. The darker your natural color, the less drastic the change will be inyour natural color. Because the color from henna is transparent or “seethrough,” henna cannot lighten dark hair; it will, however, add highlights to dark hair and can darken the color of lighter hair.
