How to differentiate between various variety of henna powder
Since there are various varieties of henna with verifying prices, a
customers is confused as to the quality of henna on offer. The quality of
henna is determined by it lawsonia content (Natural coloring agent).
Normally the supplier do not provide the proof of lawsonia in their henna to
the customers. The lawsonia factor varies between 1.5% to 2.5% in the henna.
We at Impression provide a laboratory certificate regarding lawsonia content
to our customers. We ensure that the lawsonia content in our henna is never
less than 2.5%.
How to Apply
Take out the coloring powder in a plastic bowl and add 6-7 tablespoons or
approx. 35 cc. water in it to make the paste. Make the paste so thick that
it can be easily and gently applied on hair. Apply this paste on hair with a
brush. Comb the hair after five minutes so that the paste should reach in
the roots of hair. If any whiteness is observed apply more paste on that
portion. Ensure that the paste is completely applied on hair. Wash the hair
after 30 minutes of application with water. Later on wash with soap or
shampoo, as you like.
