The majority of our products are gluten free and our packing staff are trained in handling allergens. However we cannot 100% guarantee that our products are free from gluten.
Caution: Our Hennas are 100% powdered natural leaf. They contain no dyes or dyeing agents. A lot of "high street" Henna's do contain dyes meaning they all artificially colour hair and skin with great effect. We advise that you test the product on a small area of skin before use. In the case of any adverse reaction, wash skin and hair with warm water and seek medical advise immediately.
This product will have a dying effect on light hair but will not have a significant effect on darker hair.

Description: Our Black Henna is all-natural Indigofera tinctoria and contains no other additives such as PPD (p-Phenylenediamine), it can be used as a conditioner and colour enhancer for the hair. Henna should be used with care and a skin patch test should always be carried out before use. Black Henna dye is made from the leaves of a deciduous shrub believed to be native to Asia, which reaches a height of up to 2 metres. The leaves are oddly pinnate and comprised of 11-19 obovate leaflets which are light green in colour. The pea-like flowers form clustered racemes and are light pink to deep purple-red in colour
Brief History: The historical use of indigo as a dye is sketchy to say the least, some believe that Marco Palo witnessed the indigo dye process in Kerala, India in the late-13th century and subsequently introduced it to Europe. By the 16th century indigo plantations grew all over India and by the late-18th century most of the indigo purchased came from the East India Company from the plantations in Bengal. Today only a tiny percentage of ‘indigo’ dyes used to dye fabric and wool come from true indigo, the majority being chemically synthesied.
