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.

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.

Rainbow Research Henna Hair Color and Conditioner Persian Light Brown -- 4 oz 4.7 5 6 7
Nice natural color I have dapped with using henna for many year. Four years ago I started getting chemical burns on my scalp from regular hair dye. Blisters, swelling and oozing that would last for three weeks. Being in my fifty's with a lot of gray I needed to find an alternative. I turned to henna. I use coffee, apple cider vinegar and throw in an egg for conditioning. My hair dresser told me my hair will start breaking off after a while from using the henna. So six months ago, I started using collagen (in pill form). Everytime I get my hair cut, everyone in the salon comments on how great my hair looks! How healthy it looks! May 29, 2013
Not sure? The jury is still out on this hair color? It turned my hair brassy red (and I used the coffee method) did everything by the book. I dont want to say that I dont recommend it because it covered my gray and the color isnt that bad (considering what I've seen)and it's very soft. I am going to try it again, but with the dark brown and use only half the amount (my hair is only 1 1/2" long) and mix it with a little more water so it's not like a mudpack. I will let you know!

Good color. Left my hair soft and shiny My first try with Henna. I did a lot of reading first. Used coffee and vinegar. I suppose the smell with the grassy smell of the henna was strange but not bad. I will mix it differently next time. I think it was too dry. I mixed it per instructions in a plastic bowl, put in bathtub and turned upside down but it would fall off my head in clumps. Still I was able to get it on, put on a plastic cap then wrapped in plastic cooking wrap and relaxed for about two hours. Clean up was easy. I really do love the color. Mostly I love that my hair is happy after about 8 years of coloring my hair. I don't have grey hair I do have white roots. Great gradient of colors. Natural looking. August 15, 2012
Good Stuff and Tips for Application First of all, I live in a major metropolitan area and I cannot find this stuff anywhere near this price. It turns my gray hairs lighter brown, so I have a nice streaked look. Here is how to apply this product much easier. I mix according to directions, using coffee and apple cider vinegar for the grey. Then I put the bowl in the empty bathtub, strip, and kneel over the the bowl and apply with my bare hands. It's easier on the arms, contains the mess and you can get to all parts of your scalp and hair. My hair is long and I find I have enough mud to cover every strand this way. Then I wrap the mess in a plastic grocery bag, then a turby-towel over that. I use a wash cloth to clean off my face and shoulders. It does not stain! Then I just hang out for an hour or so in my bathrobe. When it comes time to rinse out, skip the shampoo and go straight for the conditioner, probably two applications will get it all out. I love the way it smells on my hands and hair afterwards. March 15, 2012
Adds Body Somebody said it's too messy. Really, it's just like mud packing your hair. It came out kind of dark brown, but most of my hair is dark brown. My grey roots came out a little lighter, so I might try darker next time. It wasn't that hard to do, adds quite a bit of body, and I like it. I also like that I don't have to worry about using chemicals on my hair, which is very fine. October 26, 2011
