Henna + Hibiscus + Cocoa Butter

Henna + Hibiscus + Cocoa Butter = moisture rich hair recipe. Mix your henna and hibiscus petal powder together in a bowl. Equal proportions of each or as desired. In another bowl over low heat slowly melt your cocoa butter wafers until fully melted. Allow to cool and then pour into your powder mix. Mix well until consistency of a thick yoghurt. You can add water, coconut milk or more cocoa butter if your mix is too dry. Apply onto your hair by sections. I’ve always found that doing four sections work the best.

Henna Isn’t Just for Girls

Henna Isn’t Just for Girls

Men! Henna isn’t just for girls. You’ll find no discrimination here. Use henna to stay looking young and sexy. Color your beard with henna (and get a menna aka henna body art for men). Henna and indigo colored Jamal’s beard perfectly. I used a blended recipe of 50% of each henna and indigo. We wrapped his beard with a bandana which ensures all of the henna stays on and won’t drip. We then left the henna mixture on his beard for 3-4 hours. Other then coloring the hair, henna really strengthens, thickens and adds a lot of shine to the hair. This will also last at least 3-4 weeks. The time it lasts is a bit shorter because I’ve found that since the hair is short that the new growth is more noticeable quicker. You can also do touch ups as needed. Should dryness be an issue for your hair do make sure to add our organic aloe vera powder to your recipe. You can watch our full video below. Love our products?

Did you leave your henna sit out overnight?

Did you leave your henna sit out overnight?

Do you consider yourself a long time henna user? Did you come across some great henna recipes on the internet that you really would love to try? Will this be your first time using henna? If you answered yes to any of those questions then this article is for you. There have been times when clients have come to us and told us that their henna didn’t work for them. They were very disappointed as the color didn’t come out as they expected and it barely stained when they did the skin patch test. The deal on dye release: Testing your henna paste for a more effective stain We can’t stress just how important it is to follow the exact instructions on the package of your product (or online at www.HennaSooq.com under the instruction and video tabs of each product’s page). There are a lot of blogs and YouTube channels that have hundreds of recommendations on how they use henna products and often you may be tempted to use the products exactly as they did. Perhaps you’ve been doing henna for so many years that you mix it exactly the same way you always have and it always came out perfectly. Times have changed. Not all henna powders (or brands) are created equally. You can try out recipes and tips from bloggers and vloggers but you will have to make sure you blend their methods with the instructions that are for the henna powder you’re using. The instructions provided by Henna Sooq are very comprehensive and detailed. We set you up for success with henna. We ask everyone to...

Indigo for Hair | Natural Hair Dye

Indigo for Hair | Natural Hair Dye

Indigo is a natural Ayurvedic plant-based dye (vegan) that is used with henna to color hair reddish brown, brown, dark brown and up to black tones.  It lasts 4-6 weeks and will cover greys. In this easy step by step video tutorial, I make the process of using indigo easy. Mixing indigo correctly is very important to the henna coloring process. When indigo isn’t mixed properly, your henna coloring treatment usually won’t give you those rich coloring results. Common Mistakes Indigo is mixed with a cold liquid. Indigo must be mixed with a warm to hot liquid. Indigo is mixed with liquids other then water. Do not use other liquids when mixing indigo. Indigo is mixed with a heavy liquid such as yogurt, conditioner etc…Indigo does not work at all when mixed with heavy liquids such as these. Indigo is mixed directly with the henna powder. Mixing henna powder and indigo powder together at the same time won’t work since both need separate times for dye release. Indigo paste sits out for too long. Dye release for indigo is only 20-30 minutes max. Indigo is used alone. If indigo doesn’t have henna in it’s process either as a previous and recent hair application or directly mixed with henna paste then the outcome is a green hue on the hair. No patch test was done. Please always verify that you aren’t allergic to henna, indigo or ayurvedic herbs before using them. Do a small skin patch test to be sure.  ...
