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.

The next morning when you are ready to apply it to your hair, add 1 egg to prepared mixture for dry or damaged hair.

Henna For Gray Hair
If you have very resistant gray hair, you will need to complete a 2 step process.
Order the Organic Henna and Organic Indigo Combo Pack:
Mix the henna powder the night before. The next day apply it to hair, it will be a auburn/red color. Immediately apply the Indigo Powder, Organic Brown Hair Color or Organic Burgandy Hair Color and let sit for 45 minutes to 1- 1/2 hours depending on your desired hair color. Rinse and style as usually. Your hair will be healthy and beautiful with our organic hair colors. Everyone’s hair is different and will take the colour differently so trial and error may be necessary to get your perfect shade.
I have been using this henna for a while and love the color it gives me. Its a plant based product that does not have chemicals, so it's healthier for your hair. I've tried other hennas and it left my hair gritty. This one is very smooth after mixing. My hair is black and the first time I used it I was dissapointed because I had expected more color. Over time, I kept on using it until I started seeing a difference. I knew I didn't want any more chemicals in my hair because they were causing my hair to thin out. My hair was shedding, thinning, breaking and just a hot mess before I started using Ashley Lauren products. I did a google search and came across Georgia's web site and the rest is history. She started me on henna and some of her other amazing products and now my hair is thriving! I was using the brown henna and loved the color it gave me and I got lots of compliments. I recently switched to the red and I love the red color it gives and I got compliments on the red as well. Henna is also a great conditioner. I used the indigo to tone it down a bit because if you have some graying, as I do, the red will be a bit much. I love to experiment with these natural hair colors. I mix as instructed, and leave it on for 3 hours. It does not damage the hair, it only makes the hair better. I use it about once every 4 weeks and the grays don't come back for about that long. With each use of henna I notice my hair thickens and it gets stronger. It has also grown out a lot. I am almost 61, a woman of color with type 4 hair, kinky,coily,curly and wavy and Georgia has helped me grow and maintain the best hair I've had in a long time. I also love the fact that she does not compromise quality! All products are Organic! Keep up the good work Georgia! I love you!!!
