Here we will discuss how to achieve the desired color on white hair using these three plants: Henna,
Cassia Obovata, and Indigo together.
Cassia Obovata is a natural plant powder that looks very much like a henna powder. However, it
generally does not stain the hair or hands. It is an excellent conditioner, which makes hair glossy and
thick, with a healthy scalp. Cassia gives a wheat golden dye for blond people when mixed it with henna.
With the henna and indigo combination, it can give the copper blond, strawberry blond shades, and light
brown color too. It does not show any color on dark hair. It is an excellent conditioner for dark hair.
Apply it once a month to treat all the hair and scalp problems.
The Indigo powder is grounded leaves of the plant famous as Indigofera Tinctoria. It has a blue-purple
dye in it. Indigo itself alone does not work effectively on grey hair, it has to be applied either by mixing
with pure henna or after henna treatment on your hair. This method is not only safe but also beneficial
to hair. Henna leaves powder stain red-orange. It is an amazing natural conditioner and makes hair
healthy, voluminous, and strong. It builds a protective layer on the hair strands to prevent damage from
heat and sunlight. It cures dandruff and itchy scalp too.
