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**


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.

Natural hair color that hides my gray I have thick coarse black hair with strays of gray/white hair. In the past I have merely plucked those hairs. This time, I used this henna product to disguise those pesky grays. I have used a different brand of henna before from another online retailer but with the cost of shipping and it being ONLY a henna shop, Vitacost just seemed like the best option for price and convenience. The Persian Mahogany henna worked to cover up the grays. I dumped the entire contents in a bowl with hibiscus tea, apple cider vinegar, geranium & sandalwood essential oil blended with jojoba and mixed well. Then I covered up the bowl with plastic wrap for 2 hours. Then, I stirred the mixture again to ensure it was well blended and the consistence of yogurt. I applied the henna all over my head, covered it with plastic wrap and secured that with a vinyl shower cap. I used a blow dryer to heat my hair every 30-45 for 2 hours. Then I filled a bucket up with warm water and dunked my hair into the bucket to help dissolve the henna for a faster rinse. Of course henna takes time to rinse. Use a conditioner to help rinse the particles out of your hair several times. You don't notice the results right away as it takes a couple of days for the henna to reach its final color. I am pleased that my grays are covered and I have more shine with a hint of auburn in the sun. Oh, if you get a headache after applying henna or have some nausea like I do, I apply some peppermint oil to the back of my neck and stomach. Tannins (found in henna and indigo) can cause headaches. Happy hennaing! April 13, 2015
Henna I didn't notice a color difference. The smell is bad. The little herb pieces do stay in so you have to keep rinsing. The tips or hints didn't work for me to prevent coarse or really dry hair. I did notice a difference in shine before I use the coconut oil on my hair, but it wasn't consistent. I notice more fuller hair but I don't care for that my hair is already thick. I left it on overnight the I did two treatments the first time. I mixed and let it sit the other time I used it right away. March 9, 2015
Wonderful color! My hair is naturally auburn and this medium auburn just livens up my natural color and makes it shine! Looks very natural and covers the gray I have coming out. Since I already have red in my hair, I tone the red down by mixing coffee instead of hot water to the powder and it works very nicely. June 15, 2013
Lovely color! Just used this product today. Never used henna before, but wanted a natural alternative to change up my months-old chemically dyed and faded reddish-blonde. I absolutely love the color, a pretty warm copper-red, with better coverage than I've experienced with home box-color! My one and only complaint is the smell and the look of it as you're applying...but that's henna, from what I understand. Totally worth it! February 17, 2013
Beautiful over blonde As I get older my blonde has lost its luster and gotten VERY dirty. I started using this around the holidays to be festive. I had old blonde highlights from the summer that had grown out and I was hoping this would disguise the different tones between the roots and highlights. It worked beautifully! After I did the second application just over a month later, the tone became even richer and less orange on the highlighted hair. Now it looks very natural and i'm hooked. I am now a redhead and I never thought I could pull it off. Note. I use 1/2 the container with each application in my medium length, fine hair. Just add boiling water until it is the consistency of yogurt. The proportions in the directions didn't seem right. Enjoy beautiful hair without the damage or poisons! February 13, 2013
