Hi Beautiful! Today I try henna hair dye for the first time. Most hairdressers hate this stuff but I wanted to give it a fair chance and do all my own research. My findings were very interesting.

    You are absolutely right. Most hairstylists don’t agree to help you with your hair if you have had henna in it. However, henna originated in India. India is a hot country and people use it as a hair mask because it cools your body. The same reason why they apply it on their hands/feet. It’s a good alternative if you can’t afford a stylist and you still want to get rid of the Greys. My grandma has used henna for the last 40 years and she doesn’t really have any side effects except that her hair is really orange-red.

    Had a client. Came with her own box Henna told me she does that only. Me:" Let's do it!"( Never worked with it before, just heard of it)....when I saw how the thing looks when mixed with water🤢. The smell... though🤢. After a week, same client came to me cause she wanted a more vivid colour( seeing others in the saloon). Meaning bleaching, and then a bright red. I never worked on Henna bleaching before. God bless I tried on a hair strain. Told her to grow the Henna out and then come in for bleaching and colouring.😒

    Henna is mainly an Asian product. And a lot of Asian people are not found of gay people. So it’s understandable as to why he doesn’t know anything about henna. I personally don’t care, just talking about our cultural preferences..

    Most of the women in India uses henna but not for colour but as hair mask for conditioning their hair so they prefer mixture of some other conditioning ingredients instead of pure henna to get less colour.

    To use henna, leave it overnight to rest and stay for several hours, and it is not so great on colored hair, and henna must stay on the head for several hours. Mixing it with Nescafe and other colored materials changes its color.

    As an Indian, who has seen parents and grandparents use Henna, I can tell you Brad has done everything wrong. I usually like Brad's videos. But everything in the Henna Video is wrong. Right from the kind of Henna he picked up, the consistency of the hair mask, the fact that he didn't let it in a warm place overnight, you shouldn't let it dry in your hair either. Everything's wrong.

    What makes me really upset is that despite all these comments Brad is doing nothing. I love his videos but I really thought he was better that this. These are not hate comments (for the most part), they are constructive criticism and it is important to take them into account and talk about it. Hiding behind it and pretending he did nothing wrong is kinda selfish, especially if it's just to avoid a "controversy"/"scandal" (which it honestly wouldn't be because he would just be addressing his mistake). I know the things he said in this video (especially those that offended the south asian community, including myself) were out of ignorance and a lack of proper research rather than hatred and for that I will continue to support his channel but I just really hope he owns up to this and learns from it. Edit: I was also disappointed to see that he has done a henna video in the past where people left similar comments and he didn't even bother to take those into account when making this video. It makes me sad that he claims to have done research but he can't even listen to what his own fans are saying.

Also please stop appropriating our traditions for your influencer culture without even properly researching them. These are not some random exotic things that you can try out for fun and then insult them. All of this is a part of thousands of years old traditions and yes Henna and coconut oil have been an important part of our routines since the beginning of civilisation. So it's been researched and used for at least 2000+ years.

  42. Beleza Artistica

    Beleza ArtisticaПре 16 дана

    Hi, Professional Henna Artist here 👋🏽 So how Henna works on hair and skin is that the Lawsone (the naturally occurring dye in the lawsonia inermis- the henna plant) molecule binds with the keratin in the hair. So it acts as a hair tint. Even with henna on the skin it will only stain the top (dead layer of skin) layer of skin. Yes, you can’t be sure what color you will get from Henna because everyone’s hair is different, same with skin. For instance people with dark hair, flat follicles and coils it can be more drying and less obvious that henna is on the hair. It can work and be very conditioning for those with the kind of hair that I mentioned, but you have to tweak that formula a bit with adding some more moisturizing elements like coconut milks or oils. Traditionally Henna on the hair was used by those in hotter climates to reduce heat. Henna naturally reduces body temperature by a degree or two (maybe more). It’s also anti fungal and anti bacterial. I really feel like hairdresser and esthetician should link up with pro henna artists to learn more about henna from those that learn and practice the art of Henna. There is so much more to Henna than the stain that you get at the end.

    Hello I'm the late commenter 😂😂 just wanted to add a few things, henna actually protects your hair by creating a kind of cocoon around the strand WITHOUT SUFFOCATING THE HAIR, so the hair is protected from external bad sh*t and it can live its life happily, plus it gives amazing colors and shine to the hair. Also, by mixing henna with other plants you can get a wide range of colors from blonde to red to black (i do a sick brown color with henna). Finally, YOU HAVE TO LET THE HENNA SIT FOR AT THE VERY LEAST 4 HOURS, or else you get like barely nothing, the longer you let it sit under a cap, the better the results are gonna be 😁

    Tell me why I have like level 4 hair, and put red over it knowing because of the variations in my hair color, it might show up a little and change the tone - so I put it on my roots first because I don’t anticipate it showing up much anyway because color doesn’t lift color, and my head turns orange! The mids and ends were black. It was awful. Major hot roots. I still don’t know how the color processed like that

    Oh, this takes me back to my art student days! I used henna all the time to dye my hair back then - I bought it as a block from Lush, (they had three colours - black, brown and red,) and you had to break it off in chunks and add boiling water to dissolve it into the thick, muddy paste, before letting it cool a bit before putting it on your head. Yep, it's a MESSY AS HELL process, and takes a long time - set aside a good three hours, AT LEAST, start to finish, if you're gonna henna. You can bring out the red tones a lot more by covering your hair tightly in cling wrap and then a towel for the developing time, and, for more brown-y tones, just leave the hair open without covering it at all. What I loved about it most was the beautiful condition it left my hair in, and the lack of root-showage... but OH LORDY, it's whole episode of time and mess to actually do. Not a problem when I was a carefree, uncommitted art student, but now I'm way older and a mum I aint got time for that shizzle, and I just use a commercial home-dye instead. But I still miss the gorgeous results I got with henna.

    Brad I use a henna conditioning mask that I make on my own. I buy a 100% pure henna powder then use oils and teas to make a mask. I am a natural red head, however, at 41 my color is fading and these damn white hairs keep sprouting out of no where. I will say that when I make the henna conditioner I only use 1tbs of henna. This works really well for me. Gives my natural hair color a small pop. Wouldn’t say it’s for everyone, but for a natural red head with fading color it works great.

    Video idea/suggestion. Since many people have stated that this process was not correct, consider maybe contacting an expert in the process and have them walk you through the correct process while giving you some cultural background. Then you can compare to result with the one in this video. It can clear up some of the misinformation most people would find on the internet and be educational for those not familiar with the process. I think it would be a fun video

    Henna is supposed to dye hair, only if used hot ^^ So it's quite normal that the colour isn't bright. Plus, depending on how much time you let it work, before rincing, it won't make the same colour. The longer, the brighter or darker, depending on the colour you chose. Many people leave it on their hair all night long. I put quite often henna on my hair, I went from light brown to quite a nice red ^^

    I used henna for 50 years and my hair was in great shape and it was never dry. If you buy a good grade henna from a reputable company and use the same formula every time, you will get very consistent color and results. I would leave mine on, wrapped in plastic, for eight hours. You can get a much deeper color with different hennas and longer times. Mine was a very dark red. I stopped using it when my hair turned grey and my skin tone got cooler. I miss my red hair. Thanks for the video. Most stylists just dismiss henna and won’t even try it.

    So henna is just a plant. You can get variation in color depending on the ratio of other plants that are mixed in (cassia, indigo, amla, etc.,). If the mix has henna in it, it will always be some variation of red (as opposed to having just a cassia/amla mix). A problem with using henna and regular hair dye too close in time is that some henna mixes have heavy metals or other things that can cause problems with dyes. As long as it's pure henna (and/or cassia, indigo, etc.), it's fine. You have to check your source! A lot of us use lemon juice in the mix because it helps release the color from the plants. You do have to let the mix sit for a few hours to overnight to get sufficient dye release. This is why there was practically no difference on the two sides. Henna is a commitment, but it does make hair feel nice, smooth and yep, thicker.

    So henna is also dependent on how long you leave it in. My friend would sit with it on her head from like morning till dinner time to get an extremely vibrant red. So if you want crazy differences, leave it in for a very long time.

    1st of all buy Henna not henna with lots of other ingredients in it..if u want sth else then mix it from side like my mom mix Amla Powder..I just mux egg whites and tea leaves water..some mix Aloe depends on what result u want.. secondly u should not use Henna on colored hair(those who have colored hair) bcz Henna isn't hair color..I have applied powdered Henna as well as direct paste made from fresh Henna leaves..they leave beautiful color if u have grey hair but if u have all brown or black hair it would give ur hair kinda reddish makes hair really soft that's why youngsters use it..colors damage ur hair whereas Henna works wonders to ur hair and in India it's used girls and women of all age and I have been using it for years...Ur consistency is should be such that ur finger glides smoothly in the mux but it's not runny and some apply it with brush but ideal way is applying with hands...I really love watching ur videos but this is really bullshit
