Description
 
Ancient Sunrise® Zekhara Cassia is our most finely sifted cassia, so it can be used to condition fragile, damaged hair without stressing the hair. If you have hard water in your area, we recommend treating your hair with Ancient Sunrise® Rainwash so dissolved minerals do not spoil the results.

Ancient Sunrise® Zekhara Cassia is dried powdered pure cassia obovata leaf, finely sifted for fragile or damaged hair and guaranteed free from chemicals and adulterants. Mix cassia with henna to create strawberry blonde tones. Mix cassia with henna and indigo to create dark ash blonde tones.

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. We have tested all Ancient Sunrise® hennas through an independent certified laboratory to insure that they have NO lead, NO PPD, NO contaminants, adulterants or pesticide residue.
