Our tips for dyeing with plants at home
1. Prepare the hair: the Henna Morena method
Vegetable dyeing requires healthy and well hydrated hair so that the colour adheres well and the result is beautiful. If it's your first time dyeing, start at least 1 month before, The Henna Morena Method. If you've been with us for a while, make sure you follow the moisturising routines. Extra tip: if you want an even more spectacular result, use the Regenerating Night Serum for 3 nights before dyeing, you'll be amazed!
2. Quantity to be prepared: don't skimp on product
Depending on the length and quantity you have, you will need one or two colouring packs. These are approximate measurements:
- Very short hair (men's cut type): 1/2 box.
- Short hair above shoulder length: 1 box
- Medium length hair with little quantity: 1 box
- Medium length and thick hair: 1 box and a half
- Long fine hair: 1 1/2 boxes
- Long and thick hair: 2 boxes
Yes, the quantity is important so that your hair is well soaked with product. It is best to prepare extra and, if you have any left over, freeze the excess, which you should use during the following month to guarantee the properties of the plants.
3. Preparation: oil + infusion, key ingredients
Just as in baking, preparation is very important. That's why we have prepared this video-tutorial. In addition, oil and infusion are key ingredients. The oil has fats that help the plant pigment adhere better to the hair. It also moisturises and nourishes, so you'll be getting a treatment while the dye takes effect. The infusion, in addition to improving the texture of the mixture, brings the properties of the plants directly to the hair.
4. Grey hairs: Be more generous in the area
If you have grey hair to cover, it's very important that you apply a generous amount of dye to the roots (more than the rest of the hair). Why? Vegetable dye works by deposition, so the more dye you apply, the more colour it will absorb.
5. Application: spread the dye well and put on cling film
The pigment in the vegetable dye acts like a "varnish", so it is important that you distribute the dye well throughout the strands so that the colour adheres well. Do this thoroughly, there is no rush. When all the hair is covered, wrap the hair in cling film and leave it on for 1 hour. This will help to generate heat in the hair and help the pigment penetrate better.
