What does lemon juice do to henna hair dye?
Lemon juice is very commonly used as the acidic liquid for dye-releasing henna. It is cheap, easy to find, and definitely acidic enough for a good dye release. A lemon juice mix yields bright orange tones at first, but the stain oxidizes very dark over time.
Does henna cover GREY hair?
Only brunettes appear to go ‘grey’. You may have noticed that grey hairs tend to be a little coarser than pigmented hairs. Henna will not fully cover these but coats them in a dazzling, twinkly way that looks natural.
Can we mix coffee powder in henna?
Don’t mix your henna with coffee. This won’t change the color and will also smell horrible, potentially leading to a massive headache. Clove powder may sometimes intensify the color, but can irritate the skin, so use caution. Don’t forget to use an acidic activator like lemon juice or vinegar.
Why is henna bad for hair?
Black henna has a very toxic chemical in it called PPD (paraphenylenediamine), a chemical that is also present in most hair dyes that you buy or get in the salon. It is known to make the hair dyes more permanent and result in darker hair colour. When mixed into henna, it turns the natural red into a black stain.

Even henna (mehandi), if done improperly, can cause dry hair and hair fall. Henna is definitely a good hair conditioner.
What does neutral henna do for your hair?
Neutral henna is actually Cassia Obovata. Cassia conditions the hair, and shares in some of the hair treatment qualities of henna, but it does not dye the hair like henna. It can boost blonde colors* and undertones, or stain gray hair slightly blonde; brunettes and redheads won’t notice a color change.
How often should you use cassia?
I want to mention again that the results you see from Cassia are not permanent so you will have to continually do these treatments to retain the benefits. I’ve read that it has a cumulative effect, so the more you do it the better your results will be. It is recommended to do it once a month.
