A henna application will blend naturally and fade gradually without noticeable regrowth. The color may last up to three months and can be applied every 4-6 weeks if desired. Switching from chemical hair colors to organic herbal hair colors may require multiple applications to obtain the desired shade and is dependent on hair condition. If chemicals have not been used in the past, henna should cover in the first application. Henna can color gray, but may take multiple applications.
We strongly recommend a strand test before doing a full application.
Shorter hair: 1-2 oz.
Medium-length hair: 3-5 oz.
