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.

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 used many brands of henna and this one is the best. The others are so gritty and leave grit in your hair. This one is very smooth and the color is great. The red henna gives my hair red highlights that can be seen when the sun shines on it. I've used the brown as well and get a somewhat brown overtones, nothing harsh at all. I love both colors and sometimes I overlap them just to see what I get. I do have a few gray areas so I have to use the 2-step process which includes the indigo to tone the reddness down a bit. I love experimenting with henna and indigo. They are so healthy to use and will cause no damage at all. I use them once a month or anytime I feel the need to. With henna you can use it every 2 to 3 weeks if you wanna. It only strengthens the hair and makes it better. My hair is black and natural with no chemical or perm and my hair takes to the henna very well. I was experiencing breakage and fall out before the henna treatments and now its all stopped. It's growing as Georgia said it would and I am a happy customer! Georgia gave me instructions on how to take care of it with henna and a few of her other products and my hair has thickened back up and its stronger than ever! The henna is a natural conditioner, strengthener, and my hair has great shine. Henna is a bit drying but the leave-in conditoner along with the rose water and Hair cream keeps my hair moisurized and very soft. I get lots of compliments on the color and health of my hair now. I am a customer for life and I never use anything else but Ashley Lauren hair products on my hair. Patience is also a must if you want to see great benefits, believe me, I had to learn this. I never want to be without them! I did not get paid to say all this. I am truly a satisfied customer and have been for a while. To let you all know how much I trust these products, I drive 1 hour to her shop to get treatments and pick up products. They are that much worth it! Thank you so much Georgia for your advice and your amazing products.
