JFR Henna Mixing and Application

Before you begin, we strongly recommend that you do a strand test to give you an idea of how the henna will look before you apply it to your entire head. Choose a strand from the underside of your hair, apply your henna for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse and observe.

For best results, apply henna to clean, dry hair.


  • A non-metallic bowl
  • JFR applicator brush
  • Plastic gloves
  • For extra conditioning, we recommend that you add one tablespoon of olive oil per 3 oz. of henna (optional).
  • 2 cups of boiling water per 3 oz. of henna

Pour henna into bowl. Add olive oil if using. Boil 2 cups of water. Slowly add boiling water to henna and stir with applicator brush until mixture has the consistency of honey. (If water is not boiling your mixture will be lumpy.) Wearing plastic gloves, apply henna from roots to ends in small, 2" sections. Continue until your hair and roots are thickly covered.

The lighter your hair the more the henna will grab on to it, and the redder it will become. The longer you leave the henna on, the darker the shade will be. We recommend that you leave your first application on for only 20 minutes to avoid overprocessing. Natural and Champagne Henna can be left on safely for up to 60 minutes with no risk of overprocessing. After the appropriate processing time, rinse the mixture out of your hair, then shampoo and condition thoroughly. For best results, use JFR's specially formulated Henna Shampoo and Conditioner, which will help nourish your hair and preserve your color.

Choose a shade that is one tone darker than your natural hair. For example, on Champagne hair, use Strawberry Blond Henna. Put cap on, pull desired strands through and apply darker shade to strands. Leave on for 20 to 30 minutes. If hair becomes too brassy, apply brown Henna for 10 to 15 minutes to correct.

In very rare instances, henna may cause skin irritation. If this is a concern, perform a patch test behind your ear.

JFR Henna is not recommended for dyeing eyelashes or eyebrows.
