History of Henna
Secrets of beauty have been cherished throughout the ages. One of the oldest beautifers known is Henna. Famous beauties such as Nefertiti and Cleopatra used Henna to enhance their hair coloring. Silent film stars Theda Bara and Clara Bow colored their hair with Henna to add to their mystery. Today, Henna is used by women and men who understand how to be naturally beautiful.


Directions

Preparation
Rainbow Henna may be applied on wet or dry hair, but it is important that the hair be clean. If you wish to shampoo first, towel dry hair before application. Apply cream, oil, or Vaseline around the hairline, ears, and neck to avoid staining your skin.

Directions
**(If using Henna on Grey or White Hair see directions below)**

  • Pour a 4 oz. jar of Rainbow Henna into a glass or plastic bowl. 
  • Gradually add boiling water, coffee or tea to the Henna powder.
  • Use a wooden or plastic spoon to mix thoroughly to a creamy soup-like consistency, (more liquid can be added if mixture is too thick).
  • For Rainbow Neutral Henna, mix 2 oz. (1/2 jar) with boiling water.

Rainbow Henna is filled by weight. A 4 oz. jar is equal to an 8 oz. cup by volume.

**For best results with Henna on Grey hair see instructions below**

  • Gradually add boiling coffee or tea to the Henna powder. See special recipes and hints below for exact Coffee & Tea use.
  • Add 1-2 Tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar.

  • 3 Parts Dark Brown + 1 Part Medium Brown + Coffee + 1-2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar = Medium/Dark Brown

Special Recipes and Hints
Substitute Coffee or Tea for Water to add these effects:

  • Coffee – Use for Best Results on Grey Hair to help tone down red tones, deepens brown-red tones, & cover grey. Use brewed, black coffee or espresso (not instant or decaffeinated). After coffee or espresso is brewed, bring to a boil. Mix as directed above.
  • Teas- To have the following effects take place, substitute tea for water. Let tea steep for 20-30 minutes, and then bring to a boil. Mix as directed above.
  • Ceylon, Black China or Darjeeling Teas will help tone down red & deepen brown-red tones on Dark Brown, Med Brown, Burgundy, Mahogany & Sherry. Ceylon, Black China or Darjeeling Teas will add gold highlights to Light Brown Henna.
  • Red Zinger Tea enriches red tones in Burgundy, Sherry, Mahogany, Dark Brown, Med Brown and Red Henna.
  • Chamomile Tea brightens and adds highlights to Neutral, Blonde, or Marigold Blonde Henna.

Apple Cider Vinegar – To help all colors hold on grey hair, add 1-2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar to Henna mixture.

 

Lemon Juice – To lighten blonde shades, add 1-2 tbsp. lemon juice to Henna mixture.

 

To Deepen Red Shades – Red, Sherry, Mahogany, or Burgundy can be deepened by mixing a darker shade. For example, 3 oz. (3/4 jar) Mahogany + 1 oz. (1/4 jar) Dark Brown = Dark Auburn.

 

Dry or Damaged Hair – Add 1 Egg, or 1-2 tbsp. of Olive Oil, or 1-2 tbsp of Plain Yogurt to the Henna mixture. These natural ingredients not only condition, but help with the application and rinsing processes. Choose any 1 of the 3 options listed above for similar results.

 

Application

  • Wear plastic or rubber gloves to avoid staining your hands.
  • Section hair front to back and ear to ear. Take 1 inch partings in the sections.
  • Method 1 - Begin at the scalp and paint on the Henna with a tint brush from roots to ends, or use hands
  • Method 2 - Begin at scalp and apply Henna with gloved hands.  Packing it on as if you were putting a mud pack on your head.
  • Continue until all the hair is thickly coated with the Henna mixture.
  • Place a cotton or tissue band around the hairline. Cover the hair with a plastic bag or plastic wrap and old towel to help maintain heat.

Timing
(For best results use a Heat Lamp, or Thermo Heat Cap)
Leave on as follows:

  • Black, Red, Sherry, Mahogany, Burgundy, Dark Brown, Medium Brown, and Copper –with heat 45- 60 minutes; without heat 60-90 minutes.
  • Strawberry Blonde, Blonde, Marigold Blonde, Light Brown, and Neutral –with heat 30 minutes; without heat 45-60 minutes.

When timing is completed, rinse thoroughly with hot water, and then rinse with cool water. Follow with Rainbow Henna Shampoo, or any mild natural shampoo without essential oils. Rinse thoroughly and style. Leaving the Henna on longer then recommended is not advised, results may vary.

Henna Test Strand Instructions

  • Mix 1 teaspoon of Henna with Boiled Water* Use enough water to make it into a thick soup-like consistency. Additional water may be added to thin mixture if needed.
  • Test on enough hair to see results. Select a 1 inch section (enough to wrap around 2 fingers).
  • Apply Henna Roots to Ends, coating the hair.
  • After Henna is applied, wrap the section of hair in plastic wrap.
  • Leave on 45-60 minutes. Rinse off, shampoo and dry.

Check color in good light, daylight is best. For more depth of color, timing can be increased 15-30 minutes.
*coffee or tea should be substituted for water for grey hair.

wow what a difference this made to my hair I was doing a lot of research on henna and its hair benefits. I decided to try this brand, since there are so many brands to choose from online. With your first use, you will notice the difference in your hair,. My hair was shinier, it had more bounce, the color was rich and my hair looked smoother. So this is what i did: 1 cup of boiling water, used the entire jar and mixed it. It was still too thick. So i added about half a can of coconut milk to the mixture, stirred and let it sit while I went to take a shower and washed my hair. I applied and left it on for about 2-3 hrs under a cap(no heat). Yes it was messy but I was able to wipe everything off fairly easily. Make sure you wear a shirt you don't mind getting dirty or towel. Washed it out until I couldn't see anymore color in the water, just letting the shower run on my hair. i used a moisturizing conditioner and blew my hair out. I did have lots of grains all over my bathroom floor while i was blow drying my hair, but I just mopped it up. The hassle is definitely worth the results. My hair is relaxed, about armpit length. I had leftovers henna so I froze it for my next application. will purchase this brand again. February 11, 2014
"Natural" color without chemicals I am highly sensitive to chemicals and have used this product several times now. As a 45 years old male with graying hair this product is fairly easy to use and works great - last just over a month. Will prepare with coffee and apple cider vinegar and keep in for one to 2 hours. I have found it easiest to apply with a plastic fork to work the product into the scalp. Best to prepare mix one hour ahead of time so that it can begin to oxidize the color changes. January 14, 2014
Not Dark I am not sure what texture of hair or what color hair people have that used this but in no way did this darken my hair or cover up the few gray hairs that I have. Now if you are wondering if I followed the directions yes I did, even the tip where they say to mix with brewed coffee for better results and still no luck in turning my hair any darken then it already is. So as a conditioner it's fine however please be for warned that if you have extremely curly-springy hair as I do once you rise out the henna you will still have particles/trace minerals from the henna stuck in your hair so be ready to section off your hair and brush it out. And this is how I choose a star rating of 3. August 26, 2013
Rainbow Research Henna in Persian Black This is the first time using this brand of henna because it was one step to get black hair. i didn't feel like doing henna and indigo separately so i tried this thought it might work. I HATED this with a passion, this is not what henna is supposed to look or feel like even with anything mixed into it. but me being stupid used it anyway, when i opened the jar it had little pieces of twigs and hard dried powder in it so i just used a flour sifter to clean it up. it still didn't mix well, and wasn't smooth. i have used henna many times before in my life so i know that henna is messy to begin with but this was a horrible mess that made me mad. maybe i just got a bad jar i don't even know. 0 stars from me December 6, 2012
Didn't work for me. I know henna has had stellar success for a lot of people, but for what it's worth, nothing happened with my hair. No color difference, no conditioning difference, and instead a massive mess and the worst smell! And it quite clings to my hair, I've been getting nauseas smelling it. Oh well, was very much hoping for a nice color boost. :( August 5, 2012
