Surya Usage Tips
Surya Brasil Henna Hair Colouring tips for usage / best results
Tips for Usage/Best Results:
Shampoo your hair and rinse thoroughly. DO NOT APPLY CONDITIONER (Ensure that your scalp/hair is thoroughly cleansed/washed. Any conditioner/product in the hair before Surya Brasil product application will prevent colour uptake or impede its effectiveness so it is imperative to shampoo the hair properly and rinse thoroughly before applying Surya Brasil product to your hair. Apply Surya Brasil colour to damp hair.
Massage or paint the colour onto your hair - (NEVER USE A COMB as this will just remove the product from your hair)
For grey coverage (as grey tends to be more resistant to colour uptake) we normally recommend to leave the product on for 1.5 hours. In the case of ethnic hair this the requirement tends to be longer up to 2 hours for best results
The application time can be speeded up using a heat source such as a hair dryer.
The longer you leave the colour in the more pronounced the colour result - however as the product is semi-permanent the colour will fade out with each shampoo.
Using a natural shampoo like Surya Brasil Color Fixation will help preserve the colour as the Color Fixation shampoo only contains mild sulfactants which don't strip the colour or natural oil from your hair thus help with maintenance of the colour and also leaving it in better condition
Always do a patch /strand test (48 hours prior to every use) on your hair as the porosity/health of your hair varies from person to person so harsh chemicals can have an effect on your hair.
Non colouring products like Silver Fox cream/Neutral powder are great for repairing damaged hair without giving colour should you wish to have a more 'neutral' colour effect.
Please note that Surya Henna Cream does not lighten or bleach hair as it doesn't contain peroxide
Surya Henna Cream Swedish Blonde and Light Blonde will have no effect on hair that was dark before turning grey. We recommend the use of Surya Henna Cream Golden Blonde instead.
Other Benefits of Surya Brasil Henna Hair Cream
Create your own shade of colour. To match your own shade blend the appropriate Surya Brasil cream colours and strand test to determine the correct ratio.
