Avigal 100% Natural Henna 16 oz. Bag - Red



Chemical-based hair color is not an option for many consumers: allergies, pregnancy, color-resistant hair, and sensitive scalps prevent many from using chemical colors. A new  study linking chemical color to brain tumors is now impelling many former users to search for a viable alternative. Happily, there is an answer: henna, the natural hair colorant.


What is henna?
Pulverized leaves, roots and stems of the Lawsonia plant family: Lawsonia Inermis, Lawsonia Elba and Lawsonia Spinoza. When mixed with hot water and applied to the hair in a paste mixture, these leaves create subtle and natural highlights to all shades of hair without drying or chemically altering the structure  of the hair.


How  do you get 13 shades of henna?
When 3 basic shades; Red, Black and Natural are mixed in various proportions, you are able to achieve 13 shades.

If hair is bleached or unusually dry, use a deep
conditioner before adding color. Henna coats the
hair and will lock in the moisture of conditioner.

Henna is most effective when applied to dry hair. If hair
needs washing, shampoo and dry before applying henna.

Brush hair thoroughly to rid of dust and build-up.

The longer you leave in henna, the more intense the final
shade will be. Shorter time will result in a lighter shade.
Dark hair takes longer to absorb. Light hair absorbs faster.

1. Gather materials; you will need:
henna, a non-metallic mixing bowl,
a wooden or plastic spoon, rubber gloves,
aluminum foil, boiling water and shampoo.

2. Cut piece of aluminum foil approximately
the length of your arm. Put aside until after
henna application.

3. For fine, short hair, use 3.5oz. (4 heaping tablespoons)
For shoulder-length hair, use 4.5oz. (6 heaping tablespoons)
For thick, shoulder-length hair, use 9oz. (8 heaping tablespoons)
For very, long, thick hair, use 17oz. (16 heaping tablespoons)

4. Put henna in bowl. Add boiling water,
gradually stirring (like mixing dough) until
mixture reaches the consistency of sour
cream. Proper mixing is important - mix
thoroughly for 5-7 minutes.

5. Put gloves on, apply mixture to dry hair.
Start application at the crown of head and
always work over a sink to prevent mess.

6. Work henna into hair. Continue
clockwise in a circular direction.

7. After henna has been applied to
each section, pile hair like a pyramid.

8. Wrap hair with aluminum foil to seal
natural body heat. For best results, henna
should remain on hair for recommended
time length. Refer to color chart.

9. Unwrap head, rinse thoroughly with warm water,
until water runs clear. For maximum color and sheen,
wait 24 hours to shampoo. Henna will continue coating
hair shaft. Color will begin to fade in 6 weeks. Re-apply
in 4-6 weeks for stronger and vibrant hair.

I've used this henna for 24 years, when my son was born with bright red hair. As we walked down the street, people would admire how he had my hair color!
I'm 67 years old now. Use the red mixed with coffee, not water. Color is great. My hair is strong, thick and long! (Posted on 3/14/16)

i've been using henna for over 40 years. since it now covers some gray, i've got an effortless ombre look envied by stylists wherever i go.(we move a lot.) my husband thinks i'm a genius because it costs m $15 A YEAR to color my hair.
my friends have developed some nasty allergies to commercial hair dyes--something i never have to worry about.
avigal is the best. great color, great volume. can't imagine life without it. (Posted on 2/27/16)
Last time I bought the red it was so lumpy it would not dissolve properly in boiling water. I ran it through a sifter and it was still kind of lumpy, but usable. I hope this time it will not be lumpy, otherwise I will complain to customer service.
Otherwise, I am an extremely loyal Avigal user for 30 years. I've tried other hennas and they gradually rub off on the towels every time you wash your hair. Avigal stays. Just follow the package instructions -- the key is to make sure your hair is thoroughly dry before applying. (Posted on 10/1/14)

I have been using Avigal henna for over 35 years - originally recommended to me by an award winning hair dresser.

I am now 72 years of age and my hair is still very thick and wonderfully healthy. Never use dye. Times when I tried other hennas I was not satisfied. Avigal is the best henna on the market.

Can't say enough good things about it. (Posted on 9/15/14)

I get compliments on my hair color all the time. This product works well and quickly. I would recommend it. (Posted on 6/6/14)
I started using this when my hair became 50% gray. It's the base, then I use Copper and a small amount of Brown as my color. So I can't say what red actually looks like as the main color, but Avigal is the best henna on the market by far. I wouldn't use any other henna. (Posted on 4/8/14)
I have been using this for years. It is a healthy and easy way to color your hair. (Posted on 12/10/13)
