Organic Hair Color
Ashley Lauren Organic Hair Colors
Are made exclusively with organic lawsonia inermis, and other botanical natural coloring agents.
Henna is a natural plant coloring for the hair; made from the powdered leaves of a desert shrub plant, Lawsonia. The Henna we offer is 100% organic organically grown. Our henna is free from pesticide, with no synthetic additives or artificial coloring agents.
Henna contains hannatannic acid which, when mixed with tea, coffee or hot water, will coat the hair. It seals in oils and tightens the hair cuticle giving your hair a rich, healthy texture. Henna has no lightening action, so the shade that you choose will depend on your hair color. A strand test is highly recommended, especially if you are more than 10% grey. Instructions are included with each order. Our Henna is packaged in a jar to make it easy for you to use only what you need.
How do I color my hair with natural hair color?
Our hair color may be applied to wet or dry hair that is clean. Towel dry hair if you wish to shampoo first. Apply cream or oil around the hairline, ears, and neck to avoid staining your skin.
Hair Color Preparation
Pour 4oz of hair color or henna into a glass or plastic bowl. Gradually add tea, coffee or boiling water depending on your preferred color. Use black coffee or tea for a deeper color. Use a wooden or plastic spoon to mix thoroughly until you have a creamy consistency. More liquid can be added if the mixture is too thick. Let the mixture sit overnight. The next morning when you are ready to apply it to your hair, add 1 egg to prepared mixture for dry or damaged hair.
Wear plastic or rubber gloves to avoid staining your hands.
