Cocktail for coloring – the mix consisting of the vegetable and oil components capable to create effect of permanent coloring. One henna for hair of color various. My recipe of the painting cocktail: to fill in 1 tablespoon of Sudanese henna.
I dye hair henna nearly a year. During this time the trunk of hair became thickness, and their quantity significantly increased. For my thin and pushashtihsq, henna – rescue is simple. Naturally, its choice is caused also by shades: from golden-chestnut-colored, to any shade of red and black color. I started being painted with henna in 1,5 months after chemical paint. But it is better to carry out coloring in 2-3 months.
If for you painting by henna only experiment, you need to remember: after coloring by henna, usual hair-dyes paint sometimes badly. The chemical wave in general in 60% cases doesn’t undertake on hair.
All the matter is that it doesn’t get deep into a hair, and envelops it, smoothing scales and creating a protective film. Exactly thanks to its this property hair after henna become more dense, considerably shine and well comb hair. And still henna well influences growth and they split less.
When I started looking for information on henna, faced a huge number of unflattering responses: allegedly it breaks off a hair trunk from within, does them dry and fragile. But my dear, first these responses sound most often from lips of hairdressers (of course, they don’t want to lose the bread), and secondly it is necessary to know how to cook cocktails with color henna not to overdry, and, on the contrary, to recover and restore them.

My recipe of the painting cocktail: to fill in 1 tablespoon of Sudanese henna (gives resistant and saturated copper color) with hot infusion the mandarinovykh and orange-peels.

It is very important to choose qualitative henna. That which is packed, as a rule, contains a stereotyped Henna in Russia, and mixes with cellulose, sand or other components, for increase of weight of a product. I dyed hair “The Iranian natural henna” of Fitokosmetik firm earlier and I didn’t accept fast washing away of color, and henna of Artkolor firm too strongly dried up, but gave bright color, is visible because of some acid additives. Not so long ago I got in one Internet — shop Sudanese Hamum Tamarind henna (Saudi Arabia) and understood that the real henna – the small, pulverized powder, when steaming gives dark and marsh color and noticeably heats, strengthening blood supply of head skin (I even fell asleep without back pads), so, stimulates and strengthens hair bulbs.

Important! Henna is quickly washed away from hair if to do masks with use of oils, yeast or fermented milk products (sour cream, serum, ayran with rye bread, etc.). This property can use if you didn’t accept the turned-out shade. If you want that color was well fixed, it is necessary not to wash hair during 3kh days after coloring.
It is desirable to provide a long time of coloring: from 2kh till 5-7 o’clock. The coloring, the more intensively is longer and more deeply there will be a color. If you don’t want to carry dark hair, simply add the clarifying components to the painting cocktail.
It is desirable to be painted with henna not more often than time in 2 months. And before coloring it is more preferable not to wash hair. Henna is natural means for washing and helps to prolong “pure days” of hair. If your henna, for example lumpy LUSH firms, but hair is better to moisten previously. Well and of course, henna influences in the damp, warm environment therefore it is very important to create effect of a sauna by means of cellophane / food wrap and a towel/hat.
It is necessary to consider that imposing of color will give effect at which roots of hair will look lighter, than tips. That to avoid it, try to paint over more often only roots, and to update color on all length, well for example, through each painting. Plus in addition to apply on tips (out of coloring) oil masks, for example, “the rose attar enriched with an amaranth for hair and a body”.
For henna perhaps there is only one contraindication: it shouldn’t be used to blondes, and even the colourless. Don’t give in to advertizing, the decolouring henna doesn’t exist!
