Unfortunately, regular hair coloring does not do anything useful for them, and most of the stories that hair dyes are not only harmless, but also useful, are just the cunning of marketers aimed at improving sales.
In the format of this situation, it is also worth noting that natural colors influence not only the hair itself, but also the scalp. For all the usefulness of natural dyes and the scale of the positive influence that they exert, these paints have only one, but quite a significant drawback: they are much more difficult to use than dyes of factory production. Whether the game is a candle in the format of this situation – everyone decides individually.
One of the most common natural dyes for hair is henna. If it is a question of staining light hair, then henna will help to get a rich red tint. If it is necessary to get a more conservative, but still reddish hue, then in the henna solution it is necessary to add crushed indigo leaves.
Staining hair with henna is done as follows:
- The powder is mixed with indigo leaves, if it is a question of obtaining a dark shade or (if a dark shade is not needed) simply pour hot water and mix thoroughly.
- The ready solution must be spread on the surface of the head with massage movements with maximum efficiency, otherwise the solution risks to freeze and become unsuitable for use.
- Head wrapped in polyethylene film, and on top of the film – in a towel or any warm cloth.
- Leave the paint on your hair no less than 180 minutes. Ideally, the staining time is 240 – 300 minutes.
- Rinse the dye in question should be carefully enough and only under running water, combing the hair of a pre-prepared comb. To rush during the flushing process is not worth it, since the remaining pieces of the mixture will cause discomfort.
