Henna comes from a bush sometimes called the mignonette tree. The powdered leaf is used to produce natural hair dyes and a stain for a form of traditional body art known as Mehndi.

Our red henna, which is a blend of henna leaf, rhubarb and other herbs, will produce varying degrees of auburn depending on your natural shade.

Powdered henna is made from the dried leaf of Lawsonia inermis, a small subtropical tree also known as Egyptian privet. Henna has been used as a natural dye for textiles, leather and other materials for centuries. Today, it is a popular alternative to chemical-laden, permanent hair dyes.

The active color agent in the leaf, hennatannic acid, is activated when mixed with an acid to make a paste. In contrast to chemical-based hair dyes that penetrate the hair shaft, henna coats each strand to lend depth of color and shine. Our red henna is formulated with a base of Lawsonia inermis, to which small amounts of rhubarb, Centaurea, lichen and litmus are added.


One of the most frequently asked questions we get regarding our henna powder is why does it contain other herb ingredients. Pure henna (100% Lawsonia inermis) creates a slightly red color.  Small amounts of different herbs are blended with lawsonia to get different henna colors like black, blond, chestnut etc.
