Henna is a natural plant colouring for the hair; made from the leaves of a desert shrub plant, Lawsonia. The Henna we offer is 100% natural and organically grown, and is free from pesticide residues, with no synthetic additives or artificial colouring agents.
Henna is a natural colouring agent obtained from the dried, powdered leaf of a small tree or shrub native to India, Egypt and Syria.
Also known as Egyptian privet and mehndi, henna was widely employed by the ancient Egyptians, who not only used the leaf to produce a dye for hair, skin and nails but also the flowers and fruit to make infusions and salves.
Since the late 19th century, henna has been popular in Europe and North America is a natural way to “shampoo in” warm reddish-brown colour and highlights into the hair. Mixed with other dried herbs, shades that vary from blonde to chestnut brown and black are possible.
