Catherine's Curiosities - Articles on henna and hair by Catherine Cartwright-Jones, PhD

This month, we continue our presentation of each of the chapters of "Ancient Sunrise Henna for Hair" by Catherine Cartwright-Jones, PhD, a free, downloadable e-book about how and why to use henna as an alternative to commercial chemical hair dyes.

Chapter 11: Henna on Relaxed and Natural Hair

Ancient Sunrise® henna, indigo and cassia can safely be applied to all relaxed and

will give it red highlights in the sunshine. Combinations of henna and indigo can be
formulated to completely, safely, permanently cover gray hair in brunette and black hair.
