Henna Color Lab info on Sulfates:

Before I write about the Henna Color Lab Shampoo and Conditioner, I want to make sure that everyone knows what sulfates are. This is important to know, whether or not you color your hair!

This is from the Henna Color Lab website:

“What are Sulfates? Sulfates are detergents (lather makers) used in many cosmetic products: shampoos and soaps. The main nasty to avoid is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). Sulfates can irritate the skin and scalp with regular use. Many blame SLS for the rise in dry skin disorders and dandruff problems. The detergents are just too strong for regular use; they simply yank all natural, protective oils from the skin and hair. These detergents are used often in industrial products, and although they may clean the toilet bowl well at the mall, you don’t want them on your skin, scalp, and hair. Additionally, their harsh cleansing power just strips the color out of your hair well before its natural cycle. Use only organic, plant-based shampoos (coconut oil, olive oil, & sunflower seed oil detergents) if you want max color with zero side effects.”

So, check the labels on your shampoo and soaps!!

Henna Color Lab Shampoo and Conditioner

These products are designed to work with the Henna Color Lab products, but anyone, whether you color your hair or not, can benefit from using their Shampoo and Conditioner. That’s why I was delighted to be able to try these two products:

Henna Color Lab

Henna Color Lab Clean Minty Mix Organic Shampoo

You don’t need a lot of shampoo to get great bubbles. That’s really amazing to me because it’s all organic plant-based surfactants (the bubble-makers). I love that it can also be used as a body wash and a shaving cream.  

In addition to being free of sulfates, it also does not contain parabens, phthalates, or synthetics of any kind (that means there are no synthetic perfumes)! It smells great naturally with a combination of peppermint and spearmint essential oil.

Henna Color Lab

Ingredients: cocos nucifera (Coconut Oil)*, olea europaea (Olive Oil)*, helianthus annuus (Sunflower Seed Oil)*, butyrospermum parkii (Shea Butter)*, Proprietary Essential Oil Blend: Peppermint Essential Oil*, Spearmint Essential Oil*, potassium hydroxide, glycerin, guar gum, Aloe Vera*,  rosmarinus officinalis (Rosemary Extract)*, citric acid.    *Oregon Tilth certified organic ingredient

There is also a Lavender-Geranium scent available.

Henna Color Lab Minty Mix Organic Conditioner

Just like the Shampoo, the Conditioner is free of sulfates, and does not contain parabens, phthalates, or synthetics of any kind (that means there are no synthetic perfumes)! It smells great naturally with a combination of peppermint and spearmint essential oil.

This was exactly as advertised. It was very moisturizing, and therefore, I no tangles in my hair when combing my hair through. Using the Shampoo and the Conditioner, I felt my hair was left with a nice shine.

Ingredients: Aloe juice*, Lavender*, Roman Chamomile*,  Castor oil*, cetearyl alcohol, stearalkonium chloride, phenoxyethanol, hydrolyzed wheat protein, Proprietary Essential Oil Blend: Peppermint oil*, Spearmint oil*, pro-vit.

Henna Color Lab Hair Dye

In addition to the shampoo and conditioner that are reviewed above, you should check out Henna Color Lab for their hair dye. Not interested in having ingredients such as ammonia, metallic salts, and harsh chemicals, in your hair dye?! Henna Color Lab has all natural, hair dyes. The hair dye permanently bonds with your hair, it doesn’t just chemically coat it.

Below is a photo of the Pure Henna Hair Color. However, there are many colors to choose from for the women’s hair dye, and the same colors are offered for men’s hair.

Men can also use it for their beard, eye brows, side burns, and mustache.

All henna hair dye can be safely mixed if you wish to combine colors.

Henna Color Lab henna is 100% Pure, Body-Art Quality. This is the base for all of their hair dyes. It is super-fine, triple-sifted texture, and the color will lasts for weeks. Did you know that Henna has been a hair color & treatment for over 5000 years?

Ingredients: 100% Lawsonia inermis linn (Rājasthān Select Harvest™ Natural Henna). That’s it. Henna adds sheen and luster to hair and balances out your own natural highlights and undertones.

Cons of Henna Color Lab?

Only downside is the fact that Henna Color Lab sells exclusively online. However, here is their explanation:
“If we sold in retail chains our products would sell for twice the price. By distributing directly to you, we can cut out many middle men, keep costs lean, and still maintain a stable profit to keep sourcing high-quality, all natural ingredients. Most retail chains strong-arm smaller manufacturers with crippling NO-profit margins (online retailers too). As a result, many manufacturers begin to implement inferior, cheaper ingredients to drive down costs—simply to stay in favor with the big chain retailers. Invariably, the product declines in quality and the customer suffers—happens all the time in this industry.”

    I think I would love the scent of peppermint and spearmint so clean and fresh! Great Review!!

  5. RumpyDog! says:

    That is true! When Jen started using cruelty-free and sulfate-free shampoo her hair got redder. The shampoo had been stripping the color from her hair… and she does not dye her hair!
