The Story Of Henna
For thousands of years, women have used plants from the family Lawsonia, called henna, to color, condition and enhance their hair. Although Cleopatra was one of henna’s most celebrated proponents, women throughout ancient history have relied on henna to color, condition and protect their hair, skin, and nails. Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs depict regal women with painted nails and dyed skin. Believing henna represented the fire and blood of the earth, early peoples of the Middle East also discovered that this mystical plant could bring out the natural luster and deep color of their hair. Today, henna is commonly used all through the Middle East, Africa and India for tinting the skin, nails, and hair. In our Western culture, henna is primarily used for safe, natural, chemical-free hair coloring.
Natural Vs. Chemical Hair Color
Most hair coloring agents rely on harsh chemicals like hydrogen peroxide or ammonia to strip the hair and allow it to “take”, or absorb, the chemical color applied to it. The word “natural” on a bottle of hair color doesn’t necessarily mean chemical-free; some brands commonly found in natural products stores rely on peroxide to prepare the hair for their colorants. What effect do these chemicals have on the hair? Mainly, they weaken and destroy the hair shaft over time.
How Henna Works
Henna coats each hair shaft with a natural, semi-permanent protein called hennatannic acid. Heat causes the hennatannic acid to cling to the proteins found in the hair (or nails and skin, if desired). Because henna coats and seals the hair shaft, it helps protect the hair from damaging effects of sun, salt, chlorine, wind, and pollution in the environment. It can help minimize split ends and acts as “hair insurance” if you spend a lot of time in the sun, surf or wind. In addition to protecting the hair shaft, henna will tighten the hair cuticle and create a more solid surface which reflects light; the result is gleaming, lustrous hair. Rather than producing dramatic color changes, henna enhances and deepens the existing color. The darker your natural color, the less drastic the change will be in your natural color. Because the color from henna is transparent or “see through,” henna cannot lighten dark hair; it will, however, add highlights to dark hair and can darken the color of lighter hair. To determine which shade of henna is best for you based on your original color and the desired result, consult Light Mountain’s easy-to-use color chart.
One Kit is All You Need
Any hair coloring process involves a certain amount of preparation and effort. With Light Mountain products, you only need to purchase one box. Light Mountain’s complete henna application kit includes premium grade henna-based hair color, detailed instructions, a pair of disposable gloves so you can handle and apply the henna mixture without coloring your hands (remember, henna can color skin as well as hair!), and a “henna hat” to assist you in “setting” the hair color during the color treatment stage. No other henna product line on the market offers this complete henna kit.
No Harsh Chemicals or Additives
Both Light Mountain’s regular, original Light Mountain Natural Hair Color & Conditioner color range and Light Mountain’s Color the Gray! The product line for covering gray hair rely solely on blends of premium grade henna with other suitable botanicals. Light Mountain uses no other ingredients to create our rich, natural colors. Light Mountain products contain no peroxide, ammonia or other additives. Compare Light Mountain’s ingredients to those of any commercial hair coloring preparation (including many found in natural product stores) and the difference will be naturally clear.
