Cassia is also known as Senna in many countries was one of the oldest and most popular plant remedies, which for centuries was used as a laxative. It is recognized as the golden tree for its great beauty, due to the yellowish colour of the underside of its leaves. cassia for natural hair growth henna neutral When it comes to hair care, Cassia is often confused to be Henna (lawsonia Inermis), and is sometimes referred to as ‘neutral henna’ because its properties are similar to those of henna. When blended, Cassia Obovata often gives a powder with properties similar to those of the real henna, but it does not colour the hair like henna does. The hair care products, which are offered to as colourless or neutral henna, actually contain no henna in the strict sense. While the original powder of real henna is made from the leaves of the shrub called lawsonia inermis, the leaves of a plant called Cassia obovata are used for ‘Colourless Henna’
Many beauticians around the world will agree that treating hair with Cassia Obovata produces amazing results. This is because Cassia is a natural product, so it can be used for both treatment and strengthening, as well as hair restoration. Regular use of Cassia promotes rapid hair growth, making your hair thicker and silkier. Cassia also has a molecular structure similar to that of keratin, which makes up the outer layer of the hair – the cuticle. This means that Cassia can associate naturally with each hair strand, as well as protect the strand. The natural properties of Cassia smooth the outer cuticle layer so that the hair is less susceptible to harmful external influences. This protection will last for several weeks to months until it has naturally washed out again. Using Cassia Obovata For Hair Loss: Cassia Obovata is also described as the solution to damaged hair since it cares for hair uniquely, unlike all the care of major brands that simply hide the damage using silicones. In addition to the benefits mentioned, Cassia can promote hair growth, purify the scalp, fight against excess sebum and dandruff. How Cassia Works On The Hair: Cassia does not penetrate too deeply inside of the hair. It mainly settles on the surface, where it reacts with the oxygen present in the water and thus provides additional volume. In addition, Cassia also works as a natural shield natural shield. It ensures that any holes on the cuticles are closed. This makes it difficult for harmful substances to penetrate the inside of the hair and damage it. Since Cassia is a natural product, it does not change the hair permanently. After a few weeks and months, the effect subsides by itself, without the natural hair structure has been changed. Benefits Of Cassia Obovata A Conditioner: Its main use is to condition and repair damaged or dry hair. With cassia, the hair becomes bright, soft, conditioned and strong. This plant coats the hair strands as with an enamel, smoothing the cuticle. If you have damaged hair, or just want a healthy treatment, then cassia obovata is an excellent alternative.
If the hair is badly damaged, they need extra care. In this case, a hair mask is recommended, which contains other nourishing substances in addition to the Cassia powder. It is easy to create very individual mixtures that are perfectly tailored to the particular hair problem. The application is essentially the same as a normal henna pack. However, the mask should remain on the hair for at least two hours in order to develop its full care effect. Applying Cassia With The Henna Method: In principle, Cassia Obovata can be applied in the same way as the conventional colouring henna. The classic henna pack, which is traditionally used in India and the Arab world, is conceivably simple. First, the plant powder is mixed with boiling water. It is important to make sure that the paste thus produced does not become too thin. The mass should be spreadable, but still thick and mushy. While the prepared henna cools to a comfortable temperature for the scalp, the hair is washed with the usual shampoo and then rinsed thoroughly. A hair conditioner should not be applied to the hair afterwards as it would affect the efficacy of the Cassia. Then the hair should then be wrapped with a towel so that it is no longer dripping wet. But it should still be clearly wet, as this is necessary for the full effect of the ingredients. Now the prepared Cassia is applied to the hair. For shorter hair, it can simply be spread on the head with your hands in the hair. If the hair is longer, it is advisable to divide hair into sections. Once all hair is covered with henna, a plastic hood is put on and a towel or aluminium foil wrapped around the head. This maintains the heat and moisture needed to make the paste work. The whole process takes at least half an hour, but better still remain longer on the hair. For particularly damaged hair even a contact time of several hours makes sense. Then the mask is rinsed out and the hair is washed as usual. Even the usual care products can be used afterwards. Unlike the traditional staining henna, you do not have to be extra careful when using Cassia Obovata since it does not dye the hands or hair. You also can do without gloves and wear your normal clothing during the exposure time. Applying Cassia The Jostylin Method: The Jostylin method of using Cassis sia lightly different to the original method to suit different hair types. As our Chebe is blend with Cassia, it is safe to be applied on the scalp and won’t caused dandruff. as Cassia works to combat dandruff. However our method of application is different. Rather than using Chebe as a paste, our method includes adding water, a small amount of oils and some vitamins to used as a liquid leave in. To prepare, add one tablespoon of the powder in a cup of hot water. Let it cool for 5 minutes. Once cooled, add one teaspoon of your favourite oil mixture. If you prefer you can use one tablespoon of the Jostylin hair growth oil, OR one teaspoon of the Jostylin vitamin B Complex oil. Pour the solution into a spray bottle and spray on the hair and scalp. Use once a week for two months, pause for two weeks and continue. NOTE: Make sure you wash your hair once a week, so that water can enter and nourish it.
Adding Cassia Obovata In Your Shampoo: Far easier and less time-consuming than a complete powder pack is when you reach for a shampoo based on colourless henna. In the meantime, many manufacturers are offering appropriate products that take advantage of the nourishing effect of this traditional beauty product. A hair shampoo with neutral henna is identical in use to conventional shampoos and can give the hair in everyday life volume and resilience. Of course, this effect is not as intense as with a classic henna pack. Especially with very fine and hair in need of care colour-neutral henna shampoos are very well suited to bridge the time until the next henna pack. Adding Oil: Damaged hair often feels rough and shaggy. In addition, they tend to break off or split at the tips. With a good oil can counteract this problem. After a mask with neutral henna and oil, the hair not only looks shiny and healthy, but are also very soft and easy to comb. All high-quality oils are suitable for this purpose. But olive oil, which not only has an additional strengthening effect, has also proven to be useful, but is also relatively inexpensive and readily available everywhere. When mixing the henna, it should be taken into account that the oil used must be subtracted from the required amount of water. Otherwise, the mixture will become too liquid and dripping, instead of remaining on the hair during the exposure time. Adding Egg Yolk: Another traditional hair product is egg yolk, which used to be used as a natural shampoo. It contains a lot of natural proteins and makes the hair very supple. In particular, dry and dull hair can benefit as egg yolk compensates for a lack of hair-derived proteins. When preparing a henna mask with egg yolk, make sure that only the plant powder is first mixed with hot water. This mass must then cool to body temperature before the egg yolk can be added. If this is not taken into account, the egg yolk flocculates. This not only results in a crumbly consistency of the mask, but also limits its effectiveness. Adding Yoghurt: The application Cassia mixed with yogurt is also a great natural and effective remedy for various hair problems. This is because the protein the yogurt combined with the Cassia becomes a very potent hair strengthening remedy. Cassia Deep Conditioner Recipe: For the hair density with such a henna mixture 100 ml of lemon juice, 1 egg yolk and 2-3 spoon low-fat cottage cheese.
