Hello my beautiful lights! Here I bring you a natural way to dye the hair with the method of double pass with henna e indigo and that completely covers the gray hairs. This method does not leave visible the hateful orange grays that many do not like when applying only henna. And it gives a very dark color to the hair.
I’m sure you’re tired of gray hair. I know you’re tired of chemical dyes and how much they abuse your hair. And that in the henna you look for a natural dye that covers the gray hair, totally, obtaining the dark brown color, without orange tones. But until now it hadn’t worked for you.
Many friends and followers of our page, Oriental Light Cosmetics, tell me by message or comments on our Instagram or Facebook about gray hairs and how to paint them effectively naturally. Some had used henna but it didn’t work for them.
Tell you that this is because sometimes when there are too many gray hairs or the hair does not grasp well because of its texture then it does not cover the gray hairs with only henna. Or if you cover them they give a reddish tone that does not look very good especially for those with dark hair. To solve this we will have to mix it with other ingredients.
Who is the double pass method aimed at?
This method is especially aimed at those women who have many gray hairs and have asked me about how to paint the hair with henna to cover the gray hair completely without leaving oranges getting a shade of brown hair very dark or black.
My beautiful, I wholeheartedly hope that this method will help you and read on to know how it is done.
- 1 STEP: 100 gr Henna (the amount of 100 gr is for hair up to the shoulders,if it is long,more amount will be needed)
- 2 STEP: 100 gr Indigo
- Hot water (not boiling)
- Plastic hat or plastic kitchen film
- (optional) Infusion of black tea, sage,coffee, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice…
Tip 1 : Hot water is to accelerate the oxidation of henna and that all its pigmenting properties come out.
Tip 2: Hair should be clean. So henna grips her well. If it is dirty or has oils it can make it difficult to obtain a uniform color throughout the hair.
2 steps to paint hair black or brown ocuro with lots of grays with henna e indigo
1)STEP: Paint hair with henna
How to make henna mixture?
In a bowl put the henna and gradually add the glass of hot water. The amount of water needed will depend on the amount of henna to use. If it is mixed only with water we can immediately use the mixture. Also, we can mix the henna with a glass of tea infusion, or coffee to help darken the hair, sage for hydration or 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to give shine and gradually mix until you get the consistency neither very thick nor very liquid. A consistency similar to that of Greek yogurt. Let the mixture stand for 2 hours before use. Covered with a kitchen plastic.
Apply henna to hair. the more abundant the better. Cover with a kitchen plastic or shower cap. Let stand for 1 hour in the hair. Rinse with warm water
- Henna is the one that gives additional benefits to our hair such as giving it strength and being an excellent anti-cancer. In addition, it has pigmenting properties. It leaves hair healthier, protected, reduces the breakages of the hair strands and gives a lot of shine.
- The indigo gives the hair the black or dark brown tone
Tip 3: Once washing the hair and performing the passage of henna. If the gray hairs have not been fully covered we will follow the process with the double pass, which we will do with the indigo paste. This paste can be applied after washing the hair even when wet or left until it is dry. Or if you don’t have time or are tired, you can leave it up to 24 hours after you’ve done the henna. That said, the indigo paste is prepared with hot water (not boiling) the moment you are going to dye it leaving to rest about 30-40 min to release its pigments.
2)Double pass with indigo paste
Prepare the indigo mixture only with water. Apply to the hair in the same way as henna. Make sure you apply it abundantly so that it dyes everything well. Cover with a plastic. Let stand for 1-3 hours. The more gray, the more hours you leave it on. Rinse with warm water.
The result is incredible, the coverage is maximum and you get a totally uniform and bright dark color. No chemicals. Naturally and healthy. Pretty hair is half the beauty of a woman.
I encourage you to take care of yourself naturally and to experiment. Remember that you can ask me your doubts and let me know in the comments. It will be a pleasure to be able to help you.
