Summertime is a great time to lighten up those locs using henna and the cocoa brown bundle is one of my absolute favorites. It's a super easy and completely natural way to give those tresses a lift to a sensual medium cocoa brown color and strengthen and condition your hair all in one treatment!
Here's what you need:
50-100 grams of dutch processed cocoa powder
100 grams of body art quality henna(I refer using organic Rajasthani Henna for this color combo)
enough water to make a paste
heat cap or plastic wrap
What to Do:
Add as little as 25-100 grams of Cocoa powder to 100 grams of henna Powder Remember the more Cocoa Powder you use the more color you get but since cocoa is acidic you may want to condition hair afterwards, particularly if your hair is prone to drying.
Add enough purified water to make a paste the consistency of yogurt. Cover and keep in a warm for atleast 4 hours(check periodically for dye release) when you have dye release your cocoa brown mix is ready to use!
Apply the paste to your hair generously and coat every section and strand to get even color. Have fun and slather it on then cover your hair with a conditioning heat cap or even plastic wrap for atleast 4 hours or overnight.
Another wonderful additive is to use a hair steamer for the last 20 minutes before rinsing. This not only remoistens the henna, but also helps seal in extra moisture and makes rinsing 'uber' easy :-)
RINSE WELL WITH WARM WATER AND CONDITION IF NECESSARY.
(rule of thumb, rinse until the water runs clears)
Leftover Henna paste can always be frozen for a henna gloss later on!
I just wanted to say thank you so much for providing such great products, information, and service. I received my cocoa brown bundle package quickly in the mail and, thanks to your advice/information, I was able to apply it successfully and end up with fabulous results (see attached pic). Thank you so much--you have definitely become my first go-to-source for all things henna! :)
