How To Test For Allergens:
Before starting, it is important to do a strand test to avoid any after effects. This step is especially important if you have chemically treated your hair in recent times. The henna color usually develops up to 24 hours after application.
To test, mix small amount of henna to a vessel of boiling water. Put on the rubber gloves to section your hair apart. Apply henna to that particular section. Leave for one hour to three hours. Shampoo as normal and rinse off. If you are satisfied with the results, then you can proceed to apply on whole hair.
