History of Henna
Secrets of beauty have been cherished throughout the ages. One of the oldest beautifiers 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.


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.

**(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**


Directions for use on Grey or White Hair

  • Pour a 4 oz. jar of Rainbow Henna into a glass or plastic bowl.
  • 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.
  • 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 on Grey Hair: Mix 2 oz. (1/2 jar) with boiling water, do not use coffee and vinegar.

Best Recipes for Grey Hair:

  • Dark Brown Henna + Coffee + 1-2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar = Dark Brown
  • 3 parts Black + 1 Part Medium Brown + Coffee + 1-2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar = Dark Brown
  • 3 Parts Dark Brown + 1 Part Medium Brown + Coffee + 1-2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar = Medium/Dark Brown
  • 3 Parts Black + 1 Part Dark Brown + Coffee + 1-2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar = Darkest 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.



  • 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.

(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.

A staple in my natural hair care regime My copper hair has lightened a bit over the years, and I wanted a boost. Since chemical red hair dye is among the most toxic out of all the colors, I thought I'd try this. I tried the straight red color first, and it was WAY too bright (there is no way to remove it since henna penetrates the hair shaft). After you apply it to your whole head once, only touch up the roots or it will relax your curl and your hair will eventually turn a deeper red at the ends due to the buildup! This is a perfect copper red color, and it matches my roots well. It is a bit messy and takes patience - and heat - to work. I use a shower cap or just leave it on overnight with something pinned around my hair to protect my pillow. I mix mine with a hot liquid and a bit of coconut oil. You can use water, coffee, black tea, lemon juice, or vinegar. If you have time, apply it right away and wrap your head and let it set for a few hours. If not, let it sit out (covered) until a film of dark liquid appears on the top. You can accelerate the dye release by leaving it in a warm spot. You can test if it's ready by putting a dot of the paste on the inside of your wrist: if it stains the skin in a minute or two, it is ready! Henna most definitely does relax curl, so keep that in mind. I am going to experiment with mixing in amla powder to counteract this, and neem powder for extra scalp conditioning. I mix it all at once and freeze the half I don't need in a baggie immediately after the dye is "released". It stays good for a long time and all you have to do is thaw and then cut the corner of the baggie. April 16, 2015
excellent color and quality I have used this product a few times and the copper color brings out that hard to find color that is truly a copper and not a fake burgundy that most commercial hair colors offer. Henna powder is messy to apply--there is no hiding that--but this product works well. You must use HEAT after you apply it to get good results. I used a heated hair bonnet and just sit for 45 minutes and let it set. Before I bought the electric hair cap I just used a plastic cap and ran the hair dryer over it for 30 minutes. Great color and henna really makes your hair very healthy. Only downside to a henna product is that it does coat the hair shaft so you need to strip it off or let it wear down if you plan to get a perm or other hair treatment. This covers my stray white hairs very well by changing them to a very light copper which becomes a natural highlight. Sometimes I mix half of this color with another like the mahogany. My hair always looks amazing and even my non-natural hairdresser likes the way the henna looks in my hair. The color will fade a bit after the first wash but then seems to last at least 60 days. If you use a henna shampoo like Shikai warm it will refresh the color even more after you have dyed. January 17, 2015
Copper? Yeah, right... I've used henna previously, I've even used Rainbow Research Henna previously. I'm not going to ever buy again. I wanted to simply put a bit more copper in my auburn hair. It turned my hair black in some spots. This is some sort of bovine fecal matter. November 25, 2014
Wish I'd discovered this when I was younger! Before going gray my hair was mousy brown, so I welcomed the gray "highlights." But my daughter had beautiful, subtle results with henna, so decided to experiment. The change was not exactly subtle, but VERY natural looking -- I love it! I am so happy with the results of conditioning and added body to my hair that has always been fine and limp. One jar gives me two applications on long hair. So far I am reapplying about every 8 weeks; the roots growing back in are not very obvious. After the first application I used half coffee, half water, and the vinegar, and got deeper (color-wise) results. The photo is from the first app. October 8, 2013
The best! I switched from another popular henna brand and found Rainbow Research henna to be much easier to use: it's easier to mix, easier to apply and it doesn't fade much. I love the Persian Copper Red. September 5, 2013
