100% natural, pure and additive-free henna mix for chestnut-brown hair adds subtle caramel tones and can cover grey hair.
100% natural, the Centifolia chestnut brown caramel henna is a blend of natural henna, indigo and walnut stain powders. Applied to a chestnut-brown base, it enhances your hair’s colour and tones. Your hair is soft and shiny with subtle hints of caramel. This henna can also cover grey hair if it accounts for less than 20% of all your hair. Otherwise, we recommend taking two successive steps:
– a first application of natural henna with a short leave-on time (your grey hair will be somewhat orange)
– a second application of chestnut brown caramel henna in order to neutralise the “orange” appearance and achieve a chestnut-brown colour.
This henna is a blend of natural powders. Indigo and natural henna are powders derived from the leaves of their respective plants, while walnut stain is derived from walnut shell.
Sachet with zip fastening to better preserve the powder. Packaging guaranteed to contain no phthalates or bisphenol A. Product not tested on animals.

Unit price: 47.92 EUR/kg
In a large bowl, gradually add warm water to the powders until you have a relatively thick paste. Do not use metal utensils. Before applying to your hair, cover the mixture with plastic film and let sit for one to two hours so the colour can develop.
Approximate quantities to be used:
For short hair: 50 to 100g of powder
For medium-length (shoulder-length) hair: 150 to 200g of powder
For long hair (mid-back): 200 to 250g of powder
For very long hair (hip-length): 300 to 500g of powder
How to apply:
Apply a thick layer of the mixture preferably to unwashed hair, strand by strand. When hair is thoroughly coated, wrap it all in plastic film and let set. The leave-on time will vary considerably depending on your hair’s porosity and colour and the desired result (from one to 12 hours).
Rinse hair thoroughly until all residues have been removed. The final colour result will appear two to three days after application, which is the time required for the colour to oxidise.
For fine, sensitised or dry hair, you are advised to add 1 to 2 tablespoons of organic vegetable oil (Castor, Coconut, Argan) or slightly melted Shea butter to your mixture since henna can slightly dry out the hair fibre.
We recommend that you use the Centifolia no-rinse lotion with raspberry vinegar which, thanks to its acidity, “closes the hair cuticle” and adds shine.
Precautions for use:
Do not apply henna or dye powder to hair that has been permed or chemically colour-treated in the last two months.
Before colouring your hair, apply a detox mask.
Protect areas of your skin likely to be coloured by henna or dye powder by applying a thick layer of a moisturising cream or vegetable oil (top of forehead, ear contour).
Wear gloves when preparing and applying the mixture so as to not colour your hands.
Do not use metal utensils to mix the henna so as to not alter the quality of the powder. Warning: the material used could remain coloured.
Test on a hidden strand of hair before colouring your whole head. Wait for 24 hours to view the definitive result.
Do not perm or chemically colour-treat hair if you have coloured it with natural henna in the last two months.
