Made from the best quality Persian henna. Persian henna is known for giving the very best red tones, but is hard to get hold of. We don’t want to use anything less so we think it's worth the trouble.
Henna has a strong smell, so we have carefully chosen essential oils that leave your hair smelling nicely scented instead of like dried leaves!
Cut henna into chunks and place in a glass bowl, Add hot water and stir till it is a "royal icing" consistency and apply from roots to tip. You can choose to wrap hair in cling film or leave open for a more darker result (results in more mess). Then rinse hair using lots of conditioner to remove the mud and try not to shampoo for 2-3 days as this gives the henna time to oxidise and reach it's final colour.
I used Caca Brun and it was quite an experience using this!. You first have to chop it up and melt it with hot water (sounds easy) but was actually quite hard to chop up. The smell was something else! Once melted to the right consistency i covered my whole head in it and left it for just over 2 hours. The washing out process was a lot easier than expected and i didn't find it hard at all getting it out of my hair.
As for the results, I have brown hair anyway and it made no difference to the colour at all which i was really disappointed with the shine and condition was great. I did start to think maybe i should have left it on longer but i do have enough for another application with henna it's trying to fit in the time though :)
I think for the price you can't go wrong I'll get two applications out of one block, But i will then move onto powdered henna and give that a go as it seems less hassle.
I have now moved onto powdered henna and oh man what a difference! Full review in the next few days :)
