Editor's Notes

October 18, 2019:

There are many reasons beauty enthusiasts are switching over by the droves to henna hair dye. Henna is a natural dye derived from a tree — that's it. Unlike the dyes you'll find at the supermarket or in salons, henna is all-natural and non-toxic, which means it is less likely to cause irritation to the scalp. It's relatively simple to apply at home, and most packages come with enough product for many applications, a note that anyone on a tight budget would likely appreciate. Henna is temporary, however, so if you love your results and want to slow fading, consider using a gentle, alcohol-free shampoo each time you wash your hair.

Color By Nature Lustrous has been removed in light of complaints about the dye imparting a green tone on blonde and gray hair. Similarly, the Ancient Sunrise Kit was removed because of its complicated application process. In place of these products, Herbs And Crops Lawsonia and Kangana Black were added to the list, both of which were chosen for their pure formulas and ease of use.
