By following these simple steps above you will be left with beautiful hair that’s volumized and vibrant. I would also like to point out that regular chemical hair colourants from the drug store normally last around 3-4 weeks and natural/vegetable dyes will last 2-3 weeks depending on the brand! I find “Fudge Paint Box“ the best vegetable dye as it lasts 3-4 weeks and gives incredible colour results for the price. Henna lasts the longest out of the selection of dyes at around 4-6 weeks, normally I do a full application every 6 weeks, with a root touch up in-between this period. You will also notice how I talked about using Hair Oils in your hair dye/henna mix and feel everybody should start doing this, as it really helps the colour develop better and it also works to condition your hair and leave it super soft once washed off.
The Henna I used and will be using from now on is called “Renaissance Henna” and you can find this on Amazon or through the Renaissance Henna website. I was looking for a vibrant red and I got incredible results from this and this is a 2-in-1 organic herbal mix, it’s a deep conditioning hair treatment and henna colourant. The mixture once mixed with hot water comes out beautifully and turns into a really nice thick smooth consistency with hints of floral undertones from the mixed herbs, it smells nicer than pure henna and milder. I found this henna easier to work with compared to the LUSH block, and I also encountered zero mess when it came to applying the henna and afterwards 🙂 I will keep buying from this company and feel very happy with the results and price of the henna packets!! I got the 200g pack at £13.99 and this contains enough powder for three full treatments and my hair is now very long, so if you have shorter hair this will definitely last longer.
