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
natural hair, and will improve the health and strength of the hair whether kinky, coiling,
curly, wavy, or straight. Henna will not significantly change the color of dark hair, but
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.

Why Henna Color Darkens and How to Prevent It
Unlike boxed dyes, henna is permanent and does not fade. With continued applications and exposure to heat or mineral buildup, the color darkens. Henna and indigo also go through oxidation. For those who find their color results too bright, darkening with subsequent applications or heat appliances is a handy technique for adjusting their color.
