Copperberry Acidic Fruit Powder for Dye Release

Add 25gof Ancient Sunrise® Copperberry per 100g of henna or cassia, then add distilled water until the paste is the consistency of mashed potatoes. Let the paste rest at room temperature (68-72 degrees Fahrenheit) for 8-12 hours for best dye results.

Henna and cassia will dye your hair most effectively when mixed with an acidic liquid (such as diluted lemon juice) or a fruit acid powder. Using an acidic liquid or our fruit acid powders gives the best color results and the color will not fade or go peculiar. In fact, the color will gradually deepen and look more natural.

Ancient Sunrise® Copperberry is dried, powdered Acerola berries; these have antioxidants and vitamin C which preserve the golden tones in cassia mixes as well as the red colors in your henna. Your color will be brighter and less likely to darken over time.

Ancient Sunrise Henna for Hair

"Ancient Sunrise Henna for Hair" explores the art, science, techniques, and history of using henna, indigo, and cassia to dye hair. This book is a timely update of the previous book, "Henna for Hair" by Catherine Cartwright-Jones, to address the problem of the epidemic of para-phenylenediamine sensitization: the increasingly dangerous and widespread allergy to chemical hair dye.

Keeps red from fading
I use this with Ancient Sunrise Rajasthani Monsoon Henna and the red does not fade. Would highly recommend!
