Organic Cassia powder- natural conditioner for hair

If you are allergic to chemical hair dye or have been advised by your physician to not use chemical hair dye to dye your hair, you should be able to use Ancient Sunrise® Cassia and other Ancient Sunrise® products safely.

Ancient Sunrise® Clarity Cassia is dried and powdered organic cassia auriculata leaves. This cassia will not color hair on its own, but can create an array of beautiful shades when used with henna and/or indigo. This cassia will also add beautiful shine to dull hair and create volume. Not only will you get more shine, but cassia can help define and lift your curls! Those beachy waves you create with your hair will hold for days! Ancient Sunrise cassia is a finely sifted powder fantastic for all hair types, including hair type 4c.
Use Clarity Cassia powder with a fruit acid for conditioning, or with your favorite Ancient Sunrise henna and/or indigo for color.

Blonde shades can be obtained by adding7% indigo and 3% henna to your mix with your favorite fruit acid. For a cooler blonde shade, use distilled water and no fruit acid with your henna and cassia mix to dye release (for 8 to 12 hours in room temperature) before mixing and adding indigo.
