What color is henna?
Let's start with the basics.
Henna is a plant and its leaves are harvested, dried and milled into a powder.
This powder is used to make henna paste.
Let's take an example of spinach that you can buy at any regular grocery store.
When you cook these green spinach leaves, they turn to a dark green mess...lol.
Henna paste is the same color - dark green.
Now let's talk about the color that henna paste leaves behind on the skin.
The naturally occurring dye in henna is a translucent orange color.
When exposed to air, this dye gets darker - more red to dark brown shades.
