What Is Henna

Henna (Lawsonia inermis) is a flowering plant that since the Bronze Age has been used to dye hair, skin, fingernails, wool, silk, and leather.  There are also the misnomers neutral henna and black henna which are derived from different plants and not henna at all.  Henna is most widely produced in India with over 100 henna processors in Sojat City alone.  Henna used for body art and hair has made a recent resurgence and is growing in popularity all over the world.

What Are The Benefits Of Using Henna Shampoo

Henna is a natural hair strengthener and conditioner, it penetrates the shaft and smooths the cuticle, it will make your hair thicker and feel and look healthier. It adds an amazing level of shine and enhances the natural highlights of your hair. It reduces dandruff, and contains an acidic tannin that will tighten the pores of your scalp and follicles strengthening their grasp on the hairs helping prevent hair loss.

Henna shampoo isn't just for people who have colored their hair with henna dyes.  They are natural, sulfate free, and don't contain many of the ingredients in regular shampoos that are damaging and drying to both your hair and scalp.  Since henna shampoos are all natural they are environmentally friendly and safe for both children and pets, but beware that most come with an expiration date since they are not laden with the preservatives that are in standard shampoos.

Will Henna Shampoo Color My Hair

Nothing in henna shampoo will dye or add any color to your hair.  Although it enhances your own hair's shine and reflective qualities, and is perfect for people who have colored their hair with henna dyes, there are no dyes or color in henna shampoo or conditioner.  It is more of a henna extract that gives the benefits of the henna plant without the color.

For those that are looking to go natural with their beauty regime henna shampoo is perfect.  It contains no sulfates, no parabens, and no chemicals they are one of the safest and most eco-friendly choices for hair care on the market today.
