For thousands of years, women have used plants from the family Lawsonia, called henna, to color, condition and enhance their hair. Although Cleopatra was one of henna's most celebrated proponents, women throughout ancient history have relied on henna to color, condition and protect their hair, skin and nails.
Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs depict regal women with painted nails and dyed skin. Believing henna represented the fire and blood of the earth, early peoples of the Middle East also discovered that this mystical plant could bring out the natural luster and deep color of their hair. For centuries, North African brides-to-be have prepared for their weddings with the traditional "henna" ritual, in which friends and family of the bride gather to paint her hands, nails and feet with henna. Today, henna is commonly used all through the Middle East, Africa and India for tinting the skin, nails and hair. In our Western culture, henna is primarily used for safe, natural, chemical-free hair coloring.
Light Mountain starts with 100% USDA/NOP Certified Organically Grown botanicals. no chemicals are used. There are three plants that create the range of shades when blended together in the right proportions - Lawsonia inermis (henna), Indigofera tinctoria (indigo) and Cassie auriculata (senna).
Commercial chemical hair dyes use primarily ingredients such as PPD, as well as ammonia and peroxide to color the hair. Many people are experiencing serious allergic reactions in particular to the use of PPD, and this has fueled a major development in the Light Mountain Natural Hair Color brand. Research done in the hairdresser industry indicates a much higher incidence of certain rare types of cancers, which the researchers attribute to the chemicals generally used in salons for hair coloring. People nowadays want to reduce their exposure to these harsh chemical dyes, and Light Mountain provides a safe, natural alternative to chemical hair colors.
