Our new Henna-Infused Hair Serum was designed to do all the above. Its lightweight, non-sticky formula will not only protect your hair from heat damage, but also help restore its vitality natural extracts and vitamin E.
This serum is packed with nourishing ingredients that help rebuild your hair’s strength, and replenish its moisture. Let’s “unpack” this simple, yet powerful naturally enhanced formula.
You may be asking: what does “Henna-Infused” mean? And how is it different from using regular henna?
As you probably know, Henna is traditionally used as a natural hair color. The henna plants contain dyeing particles, called tannin, that give your hair a natural reddish tint.
We formulate our henna-infused products, including this serum, by extracting the essence of henna and separating the tannin. This process ensures that you get the benefits of henna, without the color-depositing property of henna (otherwise commonly known as the “color stain” in the Henna community). This same technology is used in our Henna-Infused Serum, the Henna-Infused Oils, and our Deep Conditioning Hair Mask.
The extract of natural Henna in these products binds to the natural protein in your hair (keratin), helping rebuild and protect the structure of the hair strand. This serum will leave your hair strands smoother and with more lustrous shine. Henna also helps stimulate the hair follicle, promoting hair growth and consequently, more volume.
Walnut Oil is rich in healing and stimulating properties for your scalp. The healing, healthy oils, contained in this tree nut, help relieve scalp itchiness and improve its overall health.
Additionally, the potassium found in Walnut Oil helps regenerate the skin cells, thus improving and stimulating hair growth. These micro nutrients will help increase the strength of your hair from the inside out, while also smoothing and conditioning its surface.
Almond Oil is rich in proteins and omega-9 fatty acids, that help fortify the hair from within, leaving it radiant with health. It is also extremely hydrating, helping restore the balance of moisture in your hair. These nourishing elements will help replenish damage caused by excessive heat styling, while also helping prevent additional breakage. Equally important, almond oil moisturizes your scalp, helping prevent dryness and dandruff, for improved health of your hair shaft.

Oleic acid helps make your hair more flexible, keeping it safe from environmental damage.
