......You should use henna for all of the benefits it has to dry damaged hair. Or even just for the fantastic gloss, thickness and protection it gives.
Need more convincing?
Here is some of the key benefits using henna will have on your hair:
• Stronger Hair - The Lawsone (dye) molecule in henna penetrates the hair shaft, binding with the keratin in the hair. This makes hair stronger, but also is one of the qualities that make henna removal near impossible. Henna also coats the hair and fills in any rough spots on a frayed cuticle. This adds a second layer of strength, yet still allows the hair to absorb moisture.
• Smoother, Shinier Hair - Henna, as stated above, coats the hair, but it is a permeable coating that does not lock moisture out. The henna helps fill in rough spots on the cuticle. With the cuticle rough edges smoothed over, the hair feels smoother and the cuticle takes a lot less damage during combing and manipulation. It takes several days for Henna to stabilize. It becomes more flexible and durable as it oxidizes and cures--it is in fact a plant resin that is flexible and solvent enough to penetrate the hair at the cuticle, carrying pigment with it.
• Non-Fading Red - Anyone that has used red chemicals dyes knows how badly they fade. Henna may fade a little after the first application, but after the second application fades very little. The more regularly used, the less the henna will fade
• The Absence of Chemicals - Chemical dyes are not only VERY damaging to hair, they can also cause scalp burns, allergic reactions, and recently studies have linked long term use to cancer.
We have a fantastic range of henna hair creams and powders in an array of colours that are in stock and ready to be dispatched today.
Ensure you always shake well before using henna creams. Sometimes you will notice the ingredients will separate in the bottle, this is due to the natural nature of them.
Once opened henna can be stored away for up to 12 months. This allows people with shorter hair who may not need to use a whole bottle to store it away to be used again.
A lot of people are a bit wary of using henna if they have had their hair dyed chemically in the past. Henna is 100% safe to be used on chemically dyed hair. Chemical dyes can also be used on hennaed hair.
