HENNA INSTRUCTIONS AND QUESTIONS
HOW MUCH WILL I NEED?
Our 7 oz size will give you several applications depending on the length of your hair. For example: You only need 3 oz for shoulder length hair. Use more if hair is longer and less if hair is shorter.
HOW OFTEN DO I APPLY JFR HENNA?
An application will last up to 6 to 8 weeks, depending on how fast your hair grows. Unlike chemical process, you can apply JFR Henna as often as you like as it conditions the hair and is not damaging like chemical dyes.
WILL JFR HENNA LIGHTEN MY HAIR?
No! Only a stripping agent like bleach or peroxide will pull color from your hair. You cannot go from being auburn to strawberry blonde with our henna. Our Henna will only deposit RED over your existing color.
DO A STRAND TEST FIRST
We always recommend that you always do a strand test first. This is especially important if you are laying our henna over chemically treated hair as chemically treated hair will grab our Henna differently than virgin hair.
CAN I MIX HENNA SHADES?
We recommend using straight colors before mixing different shades so you can determine what color red each shade turns your hair. Then you can have fun experimenting.
STEP 1: Pour henna into a non-metallic bowl. Then for extra conditioning you can add up to 1 TBS of olive oil. This step is optional.
STEP 2: Boil 2 cups of water. NOTE: Water that is not BOILING hot will result in a lumpy mixture. When water is hot enough your mixture should be the consistency of honey.
STEP 3: Stirring with your JFR Applicator Brush gradually add your BOILING water until your mixture becomes the consistency of honey. You do not want your mixture to be too watery or thick. To add more depth to any shade of our Henna you can also mix our Henna with BOILING dark roast coffee instead of boiling water.
TIMING YOUR HENNA PACK
We recommend you leave your first henna application on for 20 minutes to avoid over processing. If you wish to go darker, leave the henna pack on longer your next application -- up to 1 hour. NOTE: The longer you leave our Henna on - the more RED is deposited. Lighter hair grabs henna more than darker hair, that is why processing time is critical to avoid over processing.
