Kristalovino Acidic Fruit Acid for Dye Release
Add 1 teaspoon (4gr.) of Kristalovino per 100g henna or cassia. 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.
Use 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 on skin and hair. Use Kristalovino to keep henna and cassia colors bright and to avoid darkening with oxidization.
Henna and cassia will dye your hair most effectively when mixed with an acidic liquid (such as diluted lemon juice) or our fruit acid powders. 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.
