One-phase dyeing

The method for dyeing hair with henna is almost identical to dyeing your hair with other colouring agents. However, a few tips will ensure the best results:

5th step

Colouring

45 minutes to 2 hours

*Reaction time varies: according to your hair type, whether you’ve used chemical dyes or whether you’ve washed your hair with chemical shampoos containing silicones (they make it difficult to dye hair with henna). However, henna dyeing usually takes between 45 minutes to 2 hours.

Two-phase dyeing for gray hair

The resulting shade depends on the color of your hair before you apply the henna. So if you apply henna to hair that’s already dyed, the results will be different to the results of henna on gray hair. Therefore, two-phase dyeing is recommended for dyeing gray hair (Copper replaces peroxide).

*Alternatively, you can colour your hair twice with the same shade—for example, 2 x black or light brown. However, we recommend a base of our COPPER colour prior to dyeing gray hair.

TIP: The colour reacts faster if you warm the henna mixture on your head with a hairdryer.
