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.


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**

 

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.

 

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.

Rich Brown Color If you're like me and are allergic to PPD, try Rainbow Research Henna hair color from Vitacost. They have the best price and great service. I feel very comfortable recommending this product. August 14, 2013
Love it! I have used this hair color for several years now and often get compliments on my hair's shine and color. I refuse to put coloring chemicals on my scalp, so this product is much appreciated. It is a powder that you mix with liquid. You can add vinegar to cover grey or coffee to get a deeper brown - have fun and experiment! Give this a try...It just makes sense to use a natural, conditioning, product... good for you, good for the planet! Also, I have shoulder length hair and can get 2 or more colorings out of one container. June 30, 2013
Great grey coverage! Well, if you want to have a true color put on your hair and have it be safe to use, then this is your new one to buy. I did have problems getting it off of my hand, but I should have used gloves and coconut oil on my skin first. No staining on my ears or face, since I did put coconut oil on there already. Once you can get over the smell, then you are good to go! This is the first henna coloring that I have used that I feel has good coverage and is lasting better too. I have used three other henna products, but I haven't been too happy with the length of time between coloring. I used half of the container and I have mid back length hair. I added the apple cider vinegar (for grey coverage) and extra virgin olive oil (conditioning treatment) according to the package directions. Next time I will add a little more EVOO to help get the henna rinsed out better. That does take a bit of water to do that. May 17, 2013
great product at significant savings This henna product from Rainbow Labs is of high quality and purity. It does fade with shampoos, and the auburn undertones are more noticeable then. This is true of all henna. It gives hair luster and shine and has no chemical issues. May 8, 2013
This product is truly wonderful... I became acquainted with Rainbow Henna back in the mid 1990's. When I started using this henna, I just wanted to add some vibrancy to my original hair colour. Over the years I have mixed henna colours and have often received compliments. Today, I still use henna to add vibrancy, but now also to cover the gray as it grows in, and, once again, this product works wonderfully well in covering the grey. This product really works, and is completely natural. I have been a loyal customer for near onto 20 years...and plan to be for at least another 20 years! March 23, 2013
