"Nature Does Not Hurry, Yet Everything Is Accomplished." - Lao Tzu
I use a variety of herbs and water to create all masks: henna, indigo, amla, cassia, bhringraj, brahmi, neem, aritha, and shikakai.
Herbal masks cleanse and nourish the scalp & hair plus provide you with amazing natural dyes!
HOW PLANT DYES WORK
Plants like henna release pigments that can stain your hair permanently. Henna is different from chemical colors that lift the cuticle to alter pigment within the strand. Lawsone, the dye compound in crushed henna leaves bonds permanently to the protein in your hair. This creates a protective layer over each strand that adds shine, UV protection and makes hair look and feel thicker & voluminous.
COLOR DEVELOPS OVER 2-3 DAYS
Unlike chemical dyes that use peroxide and ammonia-based developers, which dye hair quickly, herbal pigments develop with time. The way your hair color looks when you first rinse away the treatment is not the final color. Initially your color will be lighter and will deepen within 2-3 days. This is a slow hair coloring method that promotes a healthy scalp and thickens hair strands.

HERBS ARE GOOD FOR YOU
Our plant dyes are 100% natural and free of metallic salts or PPD.
Herbs provide you with a completely natural solution to blend grays while combating dandruff and strengthening your scalp and hair. These treatments have been around for literally thousands of years and have unfortunately developed a bad reputation based on false and misguided information. The most common being that your hair will melt if you switch back to chemical dyes after using henna.
METALLIC SALTS + PEROXIDE OR AMMONIA DON'T MIX!
Herbal dyes can be adulterated with metallic salts which are not compatible with peroxide or ammonia, the two main ingredients used in chemical color developers. Metallic salts are used to produce dark colors in a short amount of time, something that henna cannot do.
Another ingredient added to henna is paraphenylenediamine (PPD), the main ingredient in most chemical dyes. This compound is known as "black henna", and is also used to produce dark colors in a short amount of time. You can usually find these as a cream or ready to apply product.
Both metallic salts henna and black henna are man-made compounds that were created to sell you the idea of a healthier hair dye. Henna alone does not produce nor contain metallic salts.
Without metallic salts or PPD, you can switch back to chemicals at anytime.
Masks are mixed the evening before your appointment for maximum dye release. Expect to leave the treatment in your hair for 2-3 hours before rinsing.
