Our henna powder is also super for body art!
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!
16 out of 16 people would recommend this product16/02/2019, By BbIt worked well13/02/2019, By ElizabethI 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 RuzanneThis 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-RayI 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.06/09/2018, By HenrietteI 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 MrsPepperLoving it!!!27/04/2018, By WBKIt 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 LeratoI LOVED this henna! No chemicals, and my hair is deliciously soft!04/12/2017, By JoanneAbsolutely 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 DemiGreat shine and smell to my hair.28/08/2017, By CelesteIts 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 CARMENI love this product! It's my go-to for a henna gloss. Please never discontinue it.05/05/2016, By yolandeI 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 AldeGreat product, fantastic price! If red is your colour this is all you need!08/03/2015, By ThatoThis 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.
