100% premium Henna, Fully illustrated instructions, cap & gloves
Any hair coloring process involves a certain amount of preparation and effort. With Light Mountain products, you only need to purchase one box. Our complete henna application kit includes premium grade henna-based hair color, detailed instructions, a pair of disposable gloves so you can handle and apply the henna mixture without coloring your hands (remember, henna can color skin as well as hair!), and a �henna hat� to assist you in �setting� the hair color during the color treatment stage. No other henna product line on the market offers this complete henna kit. Henna coats each hair shaft with a natural, semi-permanent protein called hennatannic acid. Heat causes the hennatannic acid to cling to the proteins found in the hair (or nails and skin, if desired). Because henna coats and seals the hair shaft, it helps protect the hair from damaging effects of sun, salt, chlorine, wind and pollution in the environment. It can help miminize split ends and acts as �hair insurance� if you spend a lot of time in the sun, surf or wind. In addition to protecting the hair shaft, henna will tighten the hair cuticle and create a more solid surface which reflects light; the result is gleaming, lustrous hair. Rather than producing dramatic color changes, henna enhances and deepens existing color. The darker your natural color, the less drastic the change will be in your natural color. Because the color from henna is transparent or �see through,� henna cannot lighten dark hair; it will, however, add highlights to dark hair and can darken the color of lighter hair. To determine which shade of henna is best for you based on your original color and the desired result, consult Light Mountain�s easy-to-use color chart.

Henna Light Mountain Henna is 100% henna! Each color is blended by their experts and consists of different proportions of the 3 main henna colors, Neutral, Red and Black (natural black, not artificial black!).
Mix 1 or 2 oz. Light Mountain Henna with 4 to 5 ounces of boiling water(distilled is best) in a glass, ceramic of plastic bowl. NO METAL UNTENSILS SHOULD BE USED! (NO METAL SPOONS, CUPS, BOWLS ETC.) Stir with a wooden or plastic spoon to a workable oatmeal consistency. Let it set for 2-3 minutes to thicken and stablize. Add hot water if mixture thickens during application. Apply cream or vaseline to hairline, ears and neck. The fine downy strands of facial hair and around your hairline are more porous and are generally lighter causing the henna application to appear lighter at the hairline. Section clean, dry hair using side partings. Make sure henna is cool enough to handle when applying THOROUGHLY coat all strands working from the head outward to the tip of the hair. When all the hair is completely coated, pour remaining henna over hair and rub in with massaging motion. Cover hair with the henna plastic hat and heat with air of blow dryer for 15-45 minutes, depending on shade desired (heat is not absolutely necessary, but will enhance red shades). Always check your color at the halfway stage by cleaning strands of hair to ensure good results. External heat source such as the sun, a sun lamp or hot towels may be used. Be careful not to melt plastic hat. After letting the henna set, rinse out with water, then shampoo with a pH balanced shampoo until all henna is removed. You're done!
