Discover the Centifolia "Hide grey hair" set. You will find essential plant-based powders to add attractive blond hints to a light-brown base (natural henna, Chamomile, Rhapontic) as well as some must-haves to maintain your natural colour : neutral foaming gel for your organic shampoos and no-rinse detangling lotion to add shine to your hair. For explanations about covering up grey hair, refer to the dedicated article on our blog.
Preparation instructions : 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.
Beauty tip : 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.
