Want Thick Silky Shiny Hair Without Changing Your Color? – Cassia Obovata May Be The Answer

I like seeing some of the African or African American ladies who experiment with coloring their hair.

I've seen blondes, brunettes, auburns, honeykissed hues, strawberry curls and I've often marveled at how well the colors compliment the personalities and natural tones of the person wearing them.

I can't lie, the color does tend to add some spunk to our kinks, curls and coils!

With the knowledge that natural coloring treatments using henna dye will not damage the hair and can prove to be quite beneficial to a healthy hair regimen, more women are opting to go the henna route rather than commercial coloring agents.

But what if you are like me, a spectator on the fence who admires the color but only want the special benefits of henna like thick shiny hair?

About Marsha Buchanan


As a Jamaican girl raised in a devout church family headed by my mother, I have always had my natural hair, no chemical processing. After years of mistreating it , often ignorant of that fact, I began my healthy hair journey in January 2013 in fact, I have seen to it that my entire household falls in line where this is concerned. When I am not poring over some hair blog or forum I spend my time teaching English to rowdy high school students (ok maybe I have some little sweethearts in the mix), mothering the most adorable two year old on this globe, or rushing to meet the deadline for a writing project on Elance. In my spare time I enjoy a stroll along the beach with my doting husband.

Looks like henna

Angela Angela

Im sticking to henna. Yes. It looks just like henna. Guess new way for them to make few millions by changing the name of it or something else.

It behaves kinda the same but not exactly like henna. Personally I want to try it as a cuticle smoother.

I love cassia, the best thing I have ever introduced to my HHJ, I don’t want the colour henna gives, and I find it much easier to use

Is henna safe for naturals to use ? Do it do anything to your hair ?

Evaughn Person

Its actually better for naturals to use. I watched several Youtubes on how to use Henna and the best brands to buy along with buying things like indigo to add to the henna for black hair color.

I have been trying to find a local place to buy this product along with Henna and Alma.

There is an Indian store about 15 – 20 minutes away from where I stay and it’s run by Middle Easterners. The prices are really reasonable which is why I don’t mind the drive. Look to see if there are any places in your area where you can purchase them. I’ve also seen them on Amazon.

Ok thank you

I have henna, nupur, and amla powder. Once a month I use them all to do a serious DC’g. I leave them on for about 3 -4 hours to ensure the gray hairs are colored. They blend in well but over time you’ll see a brownish-orange tint to some of the gray. That’s when I know it’s time to do it again; sometimes, I just let it grow out. I bought the nupur because the guy in the Indian store told me it would color the gray black – mph. (That only works when I use all three together.)

i looked up what cassia obavata is used for and it said it put’s goldentones in the hair it soften and shines the hair it real name is Sennailatica what ever that means so used your own judgement

BlackHairInformation.com

It releases golden tones based on how long you let it sit before applying it. Dye release comes after 4hrs.
