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.


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**

  • For Rainbow Neutral Henna on Grey Hair: Mix 2 oz. (1/2 jar) with boiling water, do not use coffee and 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.



  • 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.

  • 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.

Good quality henna with great color I mix this with a can of coconut milk and two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and it's like using a regular dye with great color, shine and body given to your hair. May 21, 2015
Beautiful color and shine April 6, 2015
Great product, great price I have been using Rainbow Research Henna hair color for more than 2 years now, and I love it. I have thick gray and white hair, and I use the Persian Dark Brown Sable to cover all my gray. It does a great job, and conditions my hair wonderfully. To counteract the kelp smell I put orange oil in the henna when I mix it up, put it on my hair then sit back and relax for a couple of hours. September 6, 2014
Super Conditioner & Steadfast Color I love Rainbow Henna Hair Color. It conditions as well as it covers, gray especially. I've enjoyed using the dark brown the most, mixed with a couple tablespoons black or light brown depending on the shade I desire at the time. The more black, the better and longer the color has stayed on my gray strands, however, my dark brown hair does look more black. The recipe I use for medium length, dark brown hair is 6 Tbls black coffee grounds boiled 5+ minutes in about a quart of water, strain, use hot. Add 2 Tbls apple cider vinegar, 2 Tbls Olive oil, or any oil to ease washing out, 1 jar dark brown sable henna, plus 4+- Tbls black henna. Pour henna powders into glass bowl, add remaining ingredients. Let mixture set 24-48 hours before use for longer lasting color. Stir mixture well before application. Double recipe for very long hair. IMPORTANT INFO: Do not let any metal touch the mixture. Use glass, plastic, or wooden bowls and spoons. All metal, including stainless steel, measuring spoons and bowls de-activate the henna properties so that it will not work. Wear rubber gloves to keep hands from staining. To apply: Wash and towel dry the hair to be colored. Use a wide tooth comb to divide hair into sections (from the front back) beginning at the roots toward the ends. Apply and massage each section til fully coated. Lay coated sections on top of head until all hair is covered. Can be done alone, but it is best that another person apply the mixture to your hair for good and complete coverage. Wipe any excess on skin, neck and ears, with wet paper towel, then wrap all the coated hair piled on top of head in plastic wrap several times to cover entirely. Put on a winter stocking cap to hold in body heat. Go for a walk, or exercise, or let sun shine on head. Leave on for 2 - 2.5 hours. Rinse with very warm water until completely washed out, then lastly rinse with coolest water to help set the color. Do not wash with shampoo for 24 hours following the color session. Some henna color will continue to rinse out after first couple of washings, but then it stops. This hair color doesn't make ones hair go from dark brown to blonde. It simply enhances your natural color shades. But it definitely does darken lighter hair and stick to gray. It leaves the gray a tad shade lighter than the rest of the hair that isn't gray, which makes my hair look slightly highlighted and amazing. My hair is manageable and soft, full and alive after using Rainbow Henna. I highly recommend using this henna with my recipe. Experiment with mixing the colors available for a truly personalized color. Write down the combo amounts so if it turns out perfect you will remember how much of each color you mixed. It works for me and my three girls' hair. I've used henna on others that did leave a slight green tint on the gray strands only and only detectable in direct sonlight, so we altered the amount of black to 1 Tbls more, and lessened the dark brown to remedy. The nice thing with henna, you can re-apply the same or next day, as often as you like, to obtain a satisfactory color, without damaging the hair. If it didn't 'work' to your liking the first time, try again and mix the color powder with my recipe above. Your hair will feel and look fabulous. June 23, 2014
Love it! I purchased this to cover my random gray hairs and it worked. I have thick, dark hair to the middle of my back. Apparently one 4 oz jar is suggested per application. I used about 75% of the powder and it was plenty. I mixed it with coffee instead of water in a class bowl. I needed to add more liquid than the suggested amount, so I used used hot tap water. I used latex gloves and put vaseline everywhere that the stuff could drip around my face, neck and ears. I did this at the bathroom sink. The mixture was thick enough that it didn't drip onto my shoulders or the floor. I applied the mixture by hand to 1 to 2 inch sections and piled them on top of my head (using a ponytail holder after every few sections to secure the hair). When I was finished coating all of my hair (I looked like Medusa), I still had quite a bit of mixture, so I sort of piled it on my head and distributed it evenly. I covered my head with 2 plastic bags and stretchy headband. It wasn't dripping, so I exercised and did household chores. I kept it on for approximately 5 hours. I started to rinse by leaning over the tub, but it was way too heavy and I was getting chunks of dried mud all over the floor. So, I just got in the shower to rinse it out. It was incredibly messy but didn't dye my skin because it was rinsing off immediately. The end result was my gray hairs being dyed a reddish/blond and the rest of my hair is slightly darker, but the darker color is only noticable in bright light. My hair looks healthy and moisturized. I am very pleased and plan to keep using this product when I get more gray hair or when/if it fades from my existing gray. I am very relieved to have found a way to hide gray hair without harsh, damaging, chemical dyes. January 28, 2014
