About hair coloring with henna a lot has already been said. But I would like to note one thing: it is very difficult to get the desired shade with henna, because the color depends not only on the proportions and recipe of the paint, but also on the quality of your hair, on their type, structure, on your natural color. Therefore, for the first time after staining with henna, a completely unexpected shade may turn out.
The desired shade will come with henna dyeing experience when you understand how your hair reacts to certain components. Therefore, these recipes can be considered conditional, and you can change the proportions by yourself.
Important: the color of henna will last long enough and it is very difficult to wash it out of the hair. After henna, it is not recommended to dye the hair with chemical dyes, do a perm or long-term styling. After henna, chemical dye may simply not dye your hair or dye it in an unexpected tone.
one. To receive purple tone (burgundy) henna is bred in beetroot juice, karkade tea or elderberry berries. To do this, heat the beet juice to about 60 degrees, then stir it into a bag of henna. In order to enhance the red tint in the paint, you can also add 2 tbsp. l madder root. Pre-boil the root of madder in a glass of water.
2 For shade "the Red tree" henna must be poured with hot Cahors. The same shade to turn out when adding cranberry juice.
3 For chocolate and chestnut colors in henna add natural black coffee (1 tbsp. 25 grams of henna powder). To dye hair with henna with coffee, you need 4 tbsp. natural coffee pour a glass of water and boil for 5 minutes. When the coffee has cooled slightly, add a bag of henna and stir until smooth.
four. For cherry tone - heat up any red wine to 75 degrees, add henna and egg yolk.
five. For a bright golden color add chamomile tea to henna (1 tbsp chamomile flowers on the floor of a glass of water)
6 Golden honey shade can be obtained using rhubarb, saffron, chamomile, turmeric. Saffron on the tip of the knife is added to a small amount of water and boiled for two minutes. Then add to henna. Rhubarb is crushed, filled with water and cooked over low heat for 20 minutes. Then strain and add to henna.
But the most popular component in a mixture with henna is considered basma. With the help of different proportions of henna and basma, you can also get a wide range of shades.
• if you add 1 part of basma (2: 1) to 2 parts of henna, you get a pleasant bronze tint; • a mixture of equal amount of henna and basma (1: 1) will give the hair a dark brown color; • when mixing 1 part of henna and 2 parts Basma (1: 2) hair can be dyed black; • to get a more saturated black color, henna and basma should be taken in a 1: 3 ratio. The more basmas added to the composition, the darker the hair becomes.
