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. Allow paste to dye release for 8 -12 hrs at room temperature (68 -72 degrees Fahrenheit). 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.
If you don't have fresh fruit juice handy .... use one of the Ancient Sunrise® fruit acids below! All of the Ancient Sunrise® acids can be kept indefinitely, and are ready to use. There is no need to scrounge around in your house or run to the store for juice to mix with your henna!
Each one has slightly different characteristics so you can choose the one that will give you the results you want.
