How to Mix & Apply Black Henna


Black Henna is a Two Stage Process . First, apply a coat of Henna to your hair, wash it out, and dry. This will turn your hair red. Then apply a purely Indigo mixture on the recently dyed hair. The indigo will stick to the red, creating black.


Stage 1: Applying Henna


Tools:


• Mixing Bowl (wooden or glass preferable)


• Mixing Spoon (wooden preferable)


• Measuring Spoon/Cup


• Gloves ( vinyl/ rubber)


• Plastic Wrap - OR - Plastic Shower Cap


• OPTIONAL: Fabric Cap (beanie, ski cap, etc.)


 


Ingredients:


• Black Tea, 2 cups strongly brewed and cooled


• Apple Cider Vinegar, up to 3 t a b le sp oons (use raw, unpasteurized for best results) - OR - Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice, up to 3 tables p oons


• Black Henna Kit ( specifically, 1 bag of BLACK HENNA) *


• OPTIONAL: Morrocco Method Euro Oil, 1 - 3 t easpoons


• OPTIONAL: Clove, Ginger, or Cinnamon, powdered 1 - 3 t easpoons (To lessen the smell of henna)


• OPTIONAL: Amla Powder (This will help prevent the Indigo from fading. If Amla Powder is used, DO NOT use ACV or Black Tea.)


 


Other Liquids: Black Tea with Apple Cider Vinegar/Lemon Juice is the most common liquid used when mixing henna. However, you may rep lace this liquid entirely with:


• Apple or Orange Juice, 2 cups


• Herbal Tea (chamomile, rosemary, etc.), 2 cups strongly brewed and cooled


• Filtered Water, 2 cups warmed


• Filtered Water, 2 cups warmed with 3 tbsp Lemon Juice


 


Mixing & Application


1. Pour bag labele d Black Henna fr om packet into mixing bowl. Add clove, ginger, or cinnamon to lessen smell of henna (optional) . Add apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. The more you use of either ingredient, the deeper the end results will be, b ut it will also increase the time needed to release the dye and may have a drying effect on the hair & scalp.


2. Slowly add black tea to Henna until the con sistency of yogurt. When done, t he mixture should not drip from the spoon but should still be easily spreadable. You may not need a ll 2 cups of tea to achieve this.


3. Add Euro Oil to mixture . Use more Euro Oil if you added a lot of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. Do not use more than 3 t ea spoons, as the oil can prevent the color from sticking.


4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, press ing to remove any excess air, and let sit for 8 - 12 hours. If a generous amount of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar were used, we suggest letting it sit the full 12 hours ( Check the surface for color change from the original green/olive/tan to a darker br own - red, which will signal the dye release. )


5. Section your hair and put a towel around your shoulders to prevent staining clothing. Y ou can apply Euro Oil to your hairline and ears to prevent staining skin . Using gloved hands, apply henna to clean, dry hair. (It can be applied to towel - dried hair but not wet). For visual reference, please see our guide on applying henna: www.morroccomethod.com/henna


6. Wrap hair with plastic wrap and put on a shower cap. Optionally, put on a fabric cap over the plastic to t rap body heat. The key is to keep the paste moist and warm.


7. Leave mixture in hair for 1 - 4 hours. The longer it is left, the more dye will saturate into your hair. Do not leave it in overnight.


8. Unwrap your hair and rinse with water only. Use a drain catcher to prevent possible clogging. You can u se Pearl Essence Creme Rinse or a few drops of Euro Oil to aid in the henna rinsing process . The Morrocco Method Scalp Massager may also help in removing the henna.


9. Towel dry hair or allow to air dry, then continue t o Stage 2. Stage 2 can also be done 1 - 2 days after Stage 1.

• Mixing Bowl (wooden or glass preferable)

2. Apply Indigo mixture as you did the henna mixture. The goal is to cover all parts of your hair now reddened from he nna with Indigo. Section your hair, put a towel around your shoulders, and apply Euro Oil to your hairline and ears to prevent sk in staining. Using gloved hands and apply Indigo to clean, dry hair. (It can be applied to towel - dried hair but not wet). For v isual reference, please see our guide on applying henna: www.morroccomethod.com/henna


3. Wrap hair with plastic wrap and put on a shower cap. Additionally, you can put on a fabric cap over the plastic to trap body heat. The key is to keep the paste moist and warm.


4. Leave it in your hair for 1 - 4 hours. The longer it is in, the darker the color.


5. Unwrap your hair and rinse with water only. Use a drain catcher to prevent possible clogging. Use Pearl Essence Creme Rinse or a few drops of Euro Oil to aid in the henna rinsing process, especially if you used a lot of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. The Morrocco Method Scalp Massager may also help in removing the henna.

Important Note About Chemical Dyes


Morrocco Method Black Henna Hair Color is 100% pure plant dye. There are no chemicals, metallic salts, or PPD. Morrocco Method henna hair color is the safest form of hair dye you can use, and it even has healthy benefits for your hair. You can safely use henna on previously chemically dyed hair, but we suggest waiting 6 - 8 weeks after your last dye job to allow for detox.


If choos e to continue with chemical dyes after applying henna, you'll need to wait 6 - 8 weeks until it fades. It won't "burn" your hair, which is a reaction to chemically - adulterated henna, but it can give you unpredictable results. Plant dyes don't lift easily out of your hair, leaving the end color unpredictable, and it fades faster because henna makes your hair less porous. Going lighter cannot be done with a box dye, and the amount of developer you will need to lift the henna will damage your hair to the point w here it won't take dyes well. When dying your hair with henna and indigo, it will only lift the henna, and not the indigo, giving you green hair. The amount of chemicals you need to remove indigo from your hair will make your hair too damaged to hold any d ye at all. You can, however, dye your hair the same color or darker.
