Soaking something acidic, such as lemon juice, into Cassia powder brings out a yellow/blonde dye. When you mix this with even a very little bit of henna you can get a strawberry blonde shade, or redder tones in the blonde.
2. Mix the Cassia and Henna with lemon juice or lemon juice and water to a smooth paste the consistency of yogurt:
4. Put gloves on. Cover the floor and protect your clothing from drips. Divide your hair into sections and apply the paste section by section in the same way you apply henna paste.
If this is the first time you are using cassia or henna, do a strand test first. Be careful not to use too much henna as only a tiny bit of henna has a strong effect on the cassia.
These dyes cannot lighten your hair, so to acheive strawberry blonde your hair must already be a light colour.
