Discovering the Art of Natural Hair Dying






  For hundreds of years, we have explored ways to change our self-image especially for women. From our hair to our nails to what we wear. 

  I began changing the color of my hair at a young age without realizing what frequent dying does to the strength of my hair. In the short-term, it looked beautiful but gradually it frayed the ends. Heat damage over time like sun exposure, straightening and curling iron took a large toll. My hair began to thin and I felt the need to wash my hair daily. I couldn't understand how to reverse the damages I had done and to achieve naturally healthy and voluminous hair.

  After working with Henna Art Canada, I became more conscientious of what Henna does for the body and began doing my research to share my knowledge. I then decided to experiment for my own knowledge as it had been over a year since I had artificially dyed my hair.

  I started out small so it I wouldn't be such a drastic change. My recipe included 3 Tablespoons of Organic Henna, 5 Tablespoons of Indigo, 1 cup of Plain Greek Yogurt, Egg Whites and 10 drops of Essential Oil. After combing through the hair, massaging the scalp, letting it sit for 4 hours. I slowly washed out the clay like paste.

  The first day, I noticed my hair and scalp to be overly greasy. To my knowledge now, this was due to the pours on my head to open which balanced out its natural oils. It would make sense as to how the grains of the henna made a great exfoliant. 

  As the days progressed, I took notice of how my ends felt. Of how the body of my hair became thicker like its structure completely changed. Although the dye was not prominent for the amount I used, it was a full protein treatment.

  Weeks have now gone by and the color has hardly faded. I have noticed new baby hairs growing from my scalp. This is something I did not know was possible. The natural shine to my hair really has shown me how healthy has become.
