Henna Paste For Body Art

  • ​Sift enough Henna to make about 1 1/4 cups dry, sifted Henna powder.
  • Place 2 ts Instant Coffee in a pot and boil hard in about 1 1/2 cups of water until it reduces to about a 3/4 cup of dark liquid.
  • Mix just enough coffee liquid into the Henna powder to create a thick paste.The hot liquid will make the powder ball up a little, so be sure to mix it into a well-blended and smooth paste.
  • Add about 2 TS of Lemon Juice – fresh is best.
  • Add about 5 drops each of Eucalyptus Oil and Clove Oil, and mix in.This should make a thin paste, without being runny. If it is too runny, add a little more sifted Henna powder. If it is too thick, add a little more concentrated coffee liquid, or plain water. Allow the paste to settle and cool for about 2 hours.
  • Have fun!

First time trying a henna dye but I would recommend this product. It worked really well and left my hair feeling healthier and richer

I have been using henna for 20 years and this one for around the last year, colour is beautiful and intense and the texture is great. I mix with black tea and lemon juice and allow around 12 hours for dye release before using.

Good quality product, no junk added.

I've bought this product in the past and was very happy with the results, my hair was glossy and healthy after use. HOWEVER, the last batch i received was definitely off..It was slimy and didn''t have the familiar henna smell at all. I tried a bit on my hair and it burned my scalp , so I immediately rinsed the mess off. I'm hoping that this was an anomaly possibly due to covid restrictions on the supply side. I'm willing to give this product another shot, and will adjust my rating if the quality has returned to what it was before.

This is a great product. I dye my light brown hair red with it and it works great. I mix it with chamomile tea to bring out copper and gold tones. Just know that dyeing your hair with this is permanent and will not wash out, for me that is a pro, but for some that is a con.

I was using henna for years. It exist different type of that Indian and Iranian. It can make your skin itchy just you should mix it with coconut or olive or suitable oils and also I dissolve it in red vine and yes I have beautiful full color red. Only problem after shower you should use brown or red towels. I actually diy my hair 2 a month . . But it is also prevent my hair shedding a big time.

This product is my FAVOURITE HENNA EVER. I left it in for four hours and did not use coffee or rooibos tea as I love the full red colour. I used warm water instead and there was a lot of dye release and wowza my hair looked vibrant and stunning! Highly recommended for a VERY red and firey glow.

Finally a healthy way to keep my hair red.
05/12/2020, By Christine
Love this product. I get a great, vibrant red and can touch up my roots regularly without having to buy a whole new box of dye. It has also improved the condition of my hair and I suspect helped control dandruff and dry patches.

Great value for money! I have long hair and could split this packet with my sis (whose hair is shorter but super thick), and we both got great results - nice coverage and beautiful red colour payoff! Success with henna has a lot to do with adding the right ingredients and approaching the process carefully, so doing research before mixing up and applying is the key to success.

Didn't work very well on my darker hair but the grey was bright red
26/02/2020, By Stells
Not so effective on darker hair, as it is natural.

So I'm not entirely sure about this henna, it was great, good coverage but it makes your hair bright red. I just did it for the greys and they were proper red, not orange/brown like the other henna's I've tried. Even with indigo over it to make it black, the indigo didnt take and I was back to red. So just be careful about that if you're not keen on super red hair. Otherwise, my hair felt healthy and was shiny after I used it.

I have been using red henna powder for years, and am sorry to have to say that this is a very low quality powder. There is hardly any dye release overnight.
06/01/2020, By Zaheer Ismail
Well done
27/12/2019, By Rasha
First of all, know that this is MESSY to use. Very messy. You have to leave the paste overnight to develop and on your hair for three hours. This is not an easy way to colour your hair and I'm sure there are other ways to get your hair red. BUT, it is a healthier alternative. For your scalp and the environment. And you will also need a few times of colouring for your hair to really pick up the colour. I'm not sure I will buy this again, but let's see when I'm through the whole pack :)

I loved using this. I applied it for 15 minutes fr a mild tint and it's really nice. Will apply it for longer next time. Hair is soft.
09/10/2019, By Kim
I only gave this product a 1 as there is no zero!! It turned my hair orange and brassy!! I emailed faithful to Nature to ask for advice who in turn asked the supplier. Neither could give me any solutions on how to re-dye or lighten the color! In fact the supplier didn't suggest anything except tell me how to dye my hair whichI had followed already! And the also joked about having a persons hair turn blue and if it did pls send a photo so they could see it. They don't seem to know their own product and there is no help from them or faithful to Nature when the henna doesn't work as they say!! Very disappointed!!
09/09/2019, By JJ
Bought this as pure henna but it doesn't mention any ingredients on packaging and the colour is wrong for pure henna which is normally a green powder. Not impressed. Made my scalp dry.
09/09/2019, By Fay
Made my grey hair red which looked great but left me with an itchy scalp and hair falling out.
21/08/2019, By DbelovedofGod
This is my first time using this product and I love it, it’s so smooth unlike the ones i’ve used in the past, i’ll def repurchase.
15/08/2019, By GoldyMaer
Absolutely love the product. I use it for long time. It can make your hair dry but you should find right shampoo. Only one thing to dry your hair you need dark col or towel as it leaves marks. But it is too small thing compare to benefit .
25/07/2019, By Dinah
Easy to use. Nice earthy smell.
23/07/2019, By F
Beautiful, far better than chemically modified versions
09/07/2019, By Catherine
Excellent and speedy delivery as well as well packaged. It worked well on my stubborn brown hair and has made it a lovely red.
22/04/2019, By Goldy
It's fantastic product! I use it not only colour my hair but is remedies. Also if you are blond or grey then colour will be red dispite you dissolve it in cofee or whatever. . I love the colour.
16/02/2019, By Bb
It worked well
13/02/2019, By Elizabeth
I used to dye my hair red with conventional dyes years ago, but they left my hair dry and brittle. This henna has made my hair a very natural red colour (it fools almost everyone I meet for the first time) and leaves my hair looking thicker and shinier. I love it!
05/02/2019, By Ruzanne
This must be the best Henna product I have tried to date. It never fails.
Apple Cider rinses after using this makes colour pop and last longer.

Definitely a favourite.
21/11/2018, By Erica-Ray
I have been using henna for a while now. What I love is how I did not get that coarse feeling after henna treatment. Although the particles are quite difficult to wash out, you do get it out quicker when using lots of conditioner to rinse it out your hair and then follow with a shampoo. I got this burgundy colour that is quite rich and the best part is that my hair is soft and definitely has a nice healthy shine to it. I still have like little particles but it does not really bother me.

I have gotten pretty good results with this powder. It seems to need less time to develop than other brands I've tried. I can actually just mix and use it immediately, and the colour turns out nice and nuanced. The only thing I didn't like was that the texture is somewhat rough, and takes a while to get out of your hair.
21/06/2018, By MrsPepper
Loving it!!!
27/04/2018, By WBK
It gives a wonderful red highlight to my greying black hair however it doesn't wash out so easily. Even after lengthy amount of time in the shower it still has a course feel to my hair.
Other than that it's a good enough product.
21/12/2017, By Lerato
I LOVED this henna! No chemicals, and my hair is deliciously soft!
04/12/2017, By Joanne
Absolutely LOVED this Henna, i have been a henna head for some time now already and this is by a mile the best henna i have used and will continue to only use this brand- so long as it stays the same, its was wonderfully sifted as opposed to some of the alternatives that i have used which made it so much easier to wash out (henna can be a pest to wash out) looking forward to this product being back in stock so that i can get some bags!
28/11/2017, By Demi
Great shine and smell to my hair.
28/08/2017, By Celeste
Its been so hard trying to find henna, and this was a god-send. Loved using this, after the first time, can't wait to use it again. My hair is looking absolutely amazing.
21/04/2017, By CARMEN
I love this product! It's my go-to for a henna gloss. Please never discontinue it.
05/05/2016, By yolande
I just love this product... this is the only henna that actually covers the grey hair and makes my hair look healthy and vibrant! everybody always comments on how they love the colour... will definitely recommend to others! I just find that by mixing it with tea makes my hair dry....where if I mix it with red wine and coconut oil my hair softer!
12/05/2015, By Alde
Great product, fantastic price! If red is your colour this is all you need!
08/03/2015, By Thato
This product has a great stain when mixed with something acidic. I didn have much time to let it sit and release the dye so I mixed it with some Apple Cider Vinegar, cold water and let it sit for about 30 minutes before I put it on my head.

Now I love the dye release. I might be wrong but that indicates that it has a high lawsonia content- which is all the good stuff that strengthens your hair. So I loved it for this

Why 3 stars: This product is sooooooo difficult to wash off. Ive used another brand before and the powder was much finer than this one. It took more than a week of INTENSE hair washing before I did not have any more tiny crushed leaves/ branches/twigs coming off my head.

Id give it 5 stars if it was better sifted. But there should be zero doubts about its ability to give you beautiful and shiny locks.

Using a slightly acidic liquid (lemon juice/orange juice) rather than water will result in a deeper and permanent colour, while water will result in a more brassy colour that will fade in about 8 weeks. The hotter the water the sooner it will fade.
