Here's a Rainbow Henna chart of colors and the most likely resulting shade when applied to natural hair color.
To enhance natural red shades mix powders with Celestial's Red Zinger tea. Use chamomile tea to lighten and brighten blonde shades. Black tea or coffee will tone down reds and deepen browns. To cover grey better add 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to fix the color. Henna won't lighten hair color, but it will bring out yellow and gold highlights on lighter colored hair. A colorless henna powder called Persian Neutral which conditions hair without adding color is also available. It seals cuticles so hair looks smooth and shiny, as well as adds volume.
When you shampoo henna can condition your hair while washing it. Rainbow Henna offers a Henna & Biotin Shampoo that contains neutral henna to add shine and bring out natural highlights. It's a very mild formula that's safe for natural or color treated hair. Ingredients include organic extracts of Marigold, Lemon Grass, Aloe Vera and Chamomile. Follow up with their Henna & Biotin Conditioner to complete your healthy hair treatment. This henna conditioner contains the same great ingredients as the shampoo and works well on all hair types.
To boost hair color between treatments try an easy to make henna rinse. Simply mix natural henna powder with water in a plastic bottle and shake well until it becomes a thin paste. Pour enough paste onto dry hair to cover it completely and let set for 20 minutes before rinsing out with lukewarm water. To improve the color results and conditioning effect of henna, this company sells a Thermo Electric Heat Cap that gently warms hair during henna treatments. Heat helps to set the color so it lasts longer and improve conditioning so hair becomes extra shiny. The Thermo Heat Cap is quiet, comfortable and relaxing and has 3 heat settings from low to high.
