Blog Post: What Happened When I Colored My Natural Grey and Black Hair Green

Posted by Rhonda DeYampert on

Hi Ladies, thanks for checking out this latest Curl Again blog. If you’ve been following our natural hair journey, you know that we promised you a video on coloring natural hair.  Well in this video we’re going to show you why my black greying, afro textured, 4c natural hair, turned green AND how you can color your hair the healthy way to get the phenomenal results you’ll see in the video below (just click pic below to view):

Make sure you subscribe to be notified when we have new tutorials, tips and suggestions on how to do it yourself twist outs, braid outs, roller sets and more. I’ll show you how you can use Curl Again Rosemary Mint Citrus Natural hair and scalp products to help you grow your hair healthy long strong and beautiful.  Be sure to listen through to the end to find out how you can win free products for your naturally curly hair!

Before starting, assemble everything you need to color your hair including the rainbow henna we’re using today and the Curl Again Rosemary Mint Citrus Natural Hair and Scalp Care Products ALL of which you can find at www.CurlAgain.com.  Be sure to read the directions on the labels. You should section your hair off to make application of the henna easier. Today, for times sake were just going to color the new growth around the front hairline.

Now, I'm ready to mix the henna according to the directions included.  I’ll take about a cup of henna to color my hair. I’m going to put it in the glass bowl and then boil water and add the hot water to the bowl of henna gradually, stirring, until I get it to a yogurt consistency.  You will notice that pure 100% henna has a distinct smell -- like cooked spinach. You all know how good spinach is for your body and Henna is good for your hair too as it contains hair conditioning properties as well.

While applying the cooled but still warm henna around the  hairline, you will notice that it goes on green and turning the hair green. Don’t be alarmed when you apply henna to your hair it will turn your natural hair green but as it oxidizes and reacts to heat it will change colors.  You will notice that even though the henna is on my scalp, I’m not worried about it staining my skin or burning my scalp. That’s the beauty of using henna it’s safer than dyes and chemical and it generally doesn’t stain. But always for your safety, do a strand test. And of course wear clothes that you won’t mind getting stained which is why I'm wearing dark colored clothing. 

Natural Hair Color No Dye No Chemicals Henna Curl Again

Now grab your plastic cap and set your timer.  I’m leaving the henna on for about 40 minutes so you can see the great results you get when you use the 100 percent natural plant based hennas, which we have available at CurlAgain.com. And as you can see you get a generous amount of the henna and that a little goes a long way!

After 40 minutes, you can see that the green hair color is gone and the henna on my natural hair even the gray hair has turned black.  Now, I’m ready to rinse with water as warm as I can stand it then followed by a cool rinse before I use the Rosemary Mint Citrus Cleanser which will thoroughly remove and remaining henna as well as the buildup and debris while it disinfects, gets rid of dandruff, and removes odors from the scalp without stripping your hair.

Once I’m done with the cleanser I rinse with warm water and then apply a generous amount of conditioner…look at how thick it is!  You can use this to deep condition your hair too by letting it sit for 15 to 30 minutes without worrying about dreaded protein buildup making your hair hard. But because my hair is in great condition especially after applying the henna, I’m just letting it set for a couple of minutes THEN I’M GOING TO RINSE WITH COOL WATER. 

 Look at how it’s curling my hair. My scalp feels cool clean and refreshed and my hair is soft and has plenty of elasticity and has tamed my curls for frizz free styling.

Next soak up excess water from your hair with a towel or tshirt.  Before hair styling we’re going to detangle the hair using this amazing leave in conditioning,  moisturizing detangler. Using the Rosemary Mint Citrus detangler is key to maintaining hair length as it prevents hair breakage. 

This is the amount of hair breakage I’ve had up to this point. I have kinky 4c hair which is more fragile than any other hair types and more prone to breakage, BUT…..if your hair breakage is more than this…then you really need to get the Rosemary Mint Citrus 5 piece starter set…. Just saying. 

Now, after detangling manageable sections of hair,  we’ll start styling  with the All In One Riche Hair Mousse by applying it to each section of hair (it really is rich and creamy and loaded with healthy ingredients and smells wonderful).  As the curl pattern begins to form like you see here, continue styling  with your braid out, twist out or however you plan on styling your hair.  Next, I’m going to lock in moisture and sheen with a little of the Hair Growth Scalp Balm.

The amazing combination of lightweight oils in the hair growth and scalp balm is the secret sauce to strong long hair growth as it nourishes the scalp and hair. Just take a little melt it the palms of your hands and apply it to your scalp and hair to lock in moisture and give your hair a healthy soft touchable sheen. 

After a few hours my hair is set and I’m using a little more of the Hair Growth and Scalp Balm on each braid for slippage while I take down the braids and just because it smells delicious!  Begin unbraiding working from the ends to the scalp and separate the strands, shake and style. Nice!  I’m really happy with how this henna natural hair color turned out and covered my gray hair. My hair is moisturized conditioned and frizz free.

Now you know why my hair turned green and for good reason.  Henna turns your hair color green because its natural, made from a plant and will give you fantastically healthy hair.  You can get the same results using our henna products and Rosemary Mint Citrus products all of which you can find at www.CurlAgain.com
