Description
 
Add 1 teaspoon (4gr.) of Ancient Sunrise© Kristalovino per 100gr. Ancient Sunrise® henna or cassia then stir in filtered or distilled water until the paste is the desired consistency. Use Ancient Sunrise© Kristalovino to create a lighter, brighter red henna stain than other fruit acids.

Ancient Sunrise© Kristalovino, diprotic acid, is a natural fruit acid found in grapes, apples, and other fruits; Kristalovino is very gentle to skin and hair. Use Ancient Sunrise© Kristalovino to keep henna and cassia colors bright and not darkening with oxidization.

Henna and cassia will dye your hair most effectively when mixed with a mildly acidic liquid. The acidic liquid keeps the hydrogen atoms intact on the corners of the quinone molecules so the color (lawsone or crysophanic acid) can bind to the keratin in your hair. If these molecules are bound to your hair, the color will not fade or go peculiar. In fact, the henna and cassia color will gradually deepen and look more natural.
