With 15 years I began to dye my hair for the sake of the experiment. My head, I think, was of all imaginable colors. Now I have chosen my shade and dye in order to disguise my gray hair. From chemical dyes hair began to fall out and deteriorate, and I decided to find an alternative to these means.
Once upon a time I was wearing ordinary henna, a bag of 5 rubles each. Everything was fine as long as I liked the color. Finally, I was tired of being red, but it was not so easy to take out the henna to use paint on the hair. I had to shear, grow. I did not want to return to the redhead, but it would not hurt to strengthen my hair.
Indian henna is not the same as Iranian
About a year ago, I learned about Indian henna and herbal paints. I decided to try. To be honest, I doubted for a long time, I read reviews on the Internet. It seemed to me that the color I had planned (dark brown, almost chocolate) would not work, and the red tint would come back.
First tried the herbal paint Lady Henna. From the result was not thrilled. The color was less bright than I wanted, and at the same time quickly washed away. But I did not want to go back to chemistry, and I continued the search.
Herbal paint Aasha
My hair is dark blond, but lately a lot of gray hair has appeared. I was looking for a chestnut shade to make the color brighter. For the last six months I have painted only Aasha’s herbal paint, and I can say that my hair has become much more alive and healthy.
How to use
In a pack of 6 bags, I have 3-4 for medium hair. The package is a greyish-green powder, which I fill with warm water to the consistency of sour cream. The paint is applied to clean, slightly dried hair. I hold it for about an hour. I heard that some people stand for three hours, but, to be honest, I see no point.
The paint is quickly and well washed off, only the bath turns brown, but everything is easy to clean. Some wash their hair again with shampoo, but I do not. By the way, after that my head is not my 3 days, so that the color is fixed.
After henna, hair becomes thicker, stronger. Even my poor little ones, who were tired of chemistry, somehow cheered up even.
I bought Indian henna in an oriental goods box. I believe that you can bring it with you and from vacation from overseas countries, you just need to look. I do not plan to return to chemical dyes, at least for now. I am very glad that I found them a healthy and natural replacement.
