My Henna Hair Dye Rescue from Chemical Dye Scalp Damage

Chemical hair dye damage. Hair loss.Before Henna Hair Dye

A few years ago, I suffered severe allergic reactions to chemical hair dye. When I decided to look for a chemical hair dye alternative, I used a product that I thought was a natural herbal hair dye, called, “black henna”. It was not.  Thus my scalp was damaged with both types of hair dye and it took quite a while for my hair to grow back and scalp to heal and feel healthy. I also had a small chemical burn spot from the hair dye, where very little hair grew, in the back of my head at the base of my neck. 

At that time, I was quite embarrassed about the condition of my hair because I also sang in front of small audiences at special celebrations and events. Even though I didn’t care to, I had to admit that on those occasions, I looked better donning a black hair piece or a wig. 

How I felt with Lustrous Henna. (Author not pictured).After Henna Hair Dye

After some researching, I learned about using pure henna and indigo to dye my hair black. I would spend hours and hours, waiting for the pure henna’s dye release to occur; then I would follow this up with an application of pure indigo. I was grateful for this method because I finally got my black hair covered. I still had to do a lot to condition my hair and try to get it to grow. My black hair started to grow back very slowly.

I continued to search for an easier way to apply henna hair dye and this led me to finding the Saba Botanical of USA website. I read about 100 % natural Lustrous Henna® and I admit that I was skeptical at first that with such a fast dye release, my hair would achieve color.

I decided to: Take ‘a leap of faith’. Now, my hair has finally grown back in all areas. I could finally show my natural black hair, instead of being worried about my looks. I felt like a tremendous burden had been lifted.

The Rest of My Henna Hair Dye Story

My hair condition is probably the healthiest it’s been in years. It is very soft and my curl pattern is looser, which I like. Also, I can easily cover my gray roots as often as needed. This is important because my hair has been growing in quicker lately and I want to cover up the gray roots when they come in. Now I do it naturally and have still experienced positive results. I’m very happy that I no longer have to wait several hours for a traditional henna dye release and that I can dye my hair when I only have an hour or two. I’ve happily used Lustrous Henna® Soft Black for the past few years; and I love my black hair so much, that I write the Lustrous Henna blog for Saba Botanical.

Got Gray Hair? Color it Naturally.

Gray Hair Colored Naturally. Will You Make the Effort?

Sometimes you have to try an alternative treatment to get the healthy results you want and need for your body.

For example, I have osteoarthritis. Instead of working out in the gym, using a treadmill or walking for exercise: I work out in a pool, doing aqua aerobics and water jogging. As long as I work out in the water, I have freedom of movement and I love it.

Many people are afraid to try alternative treatments or therapies even when the benefits are clearly apparent. However, usually they find that they not only are very satisfied with the results, but eventually can’t imagine their life without it!

The same is very true when coloring gray hair naturally.  Since gray hair is sometimes resistant to ‘change’, some folks prefer to take their chances with chemical hair dye. They choose to ignore the warnings, believing that ‘nothing will happen to me…I’ve been dying my hair for years.’  

Unfortunately, many have suffered severe damage to their scalp and hair, even after years of chemical hair dye use. It happened to me and I have a scar at the nape of my neck to remind me of the harm that chemical dye can cause. Fortunately, I’ve made the effort to color my gray hair with a natural, plant-based hair dye and my whole head of hair is thankful for it. The effort is definitely worth it.

Bridget Lustrous Henna -2 applicationsA Hair Dye that Naturally Colors Your Hair

Lustrous Henna® has worked wonderfully for my resistant grays. It’s a hair dye that’s quick to apply when compared to traditional henna applications. I have black hair with silver gray edges on my front hair line, with a silver streak that I’ve inherited. Oooh…I just shared a secret! No one knew I had that much gray. I confess that sometimes I have to use a second application of Lustrous Henna® to get these stubborn grays completely black, but my hair LOVES me for it. Others have had the same great experience. Will you be next?

Senna Brings Out Golden Highlights on a Cloudy Day

Saba Cassia ObovataNatural Hair Color -Golden Highlights Cassia Obovata (Senna)

Cassia Obovata (Senna) will naturally condition all textures of hair, adding luster and supple definition. It is also known to improve scalp condition and eliminates dandruff. If your natural hair color is blonde or gray, it will brighten and add golden hues and golden highlights (depending on length of time Senna is left on your hair). If your natural hair color is brunette or black, you will still reap the deep conditioning benefits found in pure Cassia Obovata (Senna) –but it will not bring out golden highlights if you don’t have any naturally.

 

Cassia Obovata is also called Senna (Senna Obovata). There are over 400 species of the Cassia Obovata plant. The ground powder is made from harvested, dried leaves of the plant. Although it has various medicinal uses, this powder is often used to condition, thicken, define and color or highlight natural hair color.

About Cassia Obovata (Senna) from Saba Botanical 

Cassia Obovata or Senna is an herb that is frequently marketed as “Neutral Henna”. As noted above, the plant has a number of beneficial properties that help condition and soften the hair. However, it is not Henna or made from the Henna plant as is the case with true Neutral Henna. 

According to Wikipedia, “Another Senna, Senna  italica (=Cassia obovata), often called “neutral henna”, is used as a hair treatment with effects similar to henna but without the red color. The active component is an anthraquinone derivative called chrysophanic acid. It adds a slight yellow color.”

The yellow color is left when the Senna made into a paste and is left on the hair for long periods of time. The staining and conditioning properties of Senna (similar to Henna staining and conditioning) might be one of the reasons it is often marketed as “neutral henna”.

Buy Cassia Obovata and Neutral Henna from a Reputable Source

Be assured that, when you buy Senna from Saba Botanical of USA, it is called: “Cassia Obovata”. It is not called, “Neutral Henna”. Lustrous Henna® Neutral Henna is a powder made from the stem of the henna plant and does not emit color, but accentuates the natural highlights in the hair. It’s also a hair conditioner. It is not Cassia Obovata.

If you love your natural hair color and want pure all-natural Cassia Obovata (Pure Senna) to bring out the natural golden highlights of your hair, buy it from a reputable source.
