Henna is a shrub-like plant found throughout the Mediterranean region that was commonly used by the ancient Egyptians to color hair and to dye fabrics and leather. Today, henna is a popular alternative to harsh, chemical-based hair dyes.

Depending on your natural color, chestnut henna leaf powder will produce a warm to rich brown on light to dark blonde hair and add warm highlights to darker shades.

Henna is a natural alternative to chemical dyes for coloring the hair. It is obtained from the leaf of a small tree native to Asia, Africa, New Zealand and Australia. Color enhancement is owing to a chemical in the leaf called hennatannic acid, a protein that coats hair shafts to deposit a semi-permanent color that eventually fades with washing.

To effect different shades, it is necessary to blend henna with other botanicals or otherwise the result would be—depending on starting hair color—orange to red or burgundy. Chestnut henna is formulated to consist of 75% Lawsonia inermis and small amounts of (in order of concentration) indigo, Centaurea, rhubarb, lichen and litmus.


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.
