Light Mountain Hair Color (Henna) - Medium Brown
by Janet D.
I decided to try a natural product after many years of experiencing burning & itching of the scalp that I suspected was because of hair dye. Upon researching hair dyes and learning about their toxicity and dangers of PPD, I opted to try Light Mountain. The box indicates that the color will last 4-6 weeks, so I consider it permanent color, although it is strictly 100% Henna with no chemicals whatsoever.
Light mountain was easy to use. It smells like hay/fertilizer, but not as near bad as the chemical smells from other hair dyes. It is a 2 step process. First step is to cover damp hair with the light brown henna for 5-15 minutes. This was very easy and not messy at all. Rinse out, and then for Step 2, you apply the indigo (greenish) henna, use intermittent heat, and check at 12 minute intervals until desired color. I only had to leave on for 12 minutes. Step 2 was a little messy (my first time using), so be sure and put down some paper towels or newspapers and you will be fine. Also.... try and stay in one location while coloring!
The color turned out BEAUTIFUL! Warm brown tone with highlights (golden). Well worth a little messiness for step 2. So far it has been one week, and my color still looks great! I'll post another review to let everyone know how long it lasts!
I highly recommend this product. I feel so good about using something all natural, and not exposing myself to toxic hair dyes!
Thanks Janet for the review and the great tips. I look forward to hearing about how long the color lasts and if you are still happy with your hair.
