Cassia Obovata (also known as neutral henna or senna) is a natural Ayurvedic herb.

This Ayurvedic herb will leave your hair glossy, stronger, thicker, dandruff-free, and healthy. Cassia Obovata gives you all the benefits of henna without color results on dark hair tones. For those with light shades of hair such as blond, strawberry blond or grey hairs the cassia will color your hair and give you the perfect uplift to your natural hair tone.

There are many hair tones you can achieve when using Cassia Obovata such as:

  • golden blond
  • strawberry blond (along with henna)
  • copper (along with henna)

Instructions and recipes can be found on the Instruction tab, Henna TV and DIY Henna links.

Our Cassia Obovata powder comes inside an inner foil resealable pouch. This is the best packaging possible to maintain freshness.

    Wonderful product

    Posted by Tatiana on 12th Apr 2021

    I mix Organic Cassia Obovata with around 3% of Moroccan Henna and some water. I leave that on for 12-18 hours. I keep the mix on my head for 3 hours wrapped in plastic wrap and with a hat on. Then I wash my hair with moisturizing hair conditioner only. It keeps my getting grayish brown hair looking good. No chemical agents at all. Long lasting effect. The side effect is my wavy hair is getting straight temporarily.

    Did not do the job

    Posted by Tatyana on 23rd Nov 2020

    I thought this would be better than the Colora Henna Powder Hair Color Apricot Gold I usually use to give my natural dark blond hair a golden sheen. Kept it on for almost 4 hours but some of my greys around the temples were not colored and the over all effect is a bit dull, darker than it was with Henna. Won't use this product again.

    Do a Patch Test!

    Posted by Nicole on 15th Oct 2020

    As soon as I received this item I did a patch test, because I have a really sensitive scalp. Thank god I tested it on my inner arm, and not my head, because later the next day there was a red rash right where the cassia was and it itched a lot. I just took a Benadryl and put some aloe on it. Please do a patch test before you put any Ayurvedic items on your scalp.

    Great alternative to henna

    Posted by Flo on 16th Jun 2015

    I used cassia in my clients transitioning hair. I left it on for 30 mins. Her hair felt stronger and looked shinier. Her new growth also had a gorgeous lustre to it. I like that it doesn't have a pungent scent to it like henna and a little goes a long way too! This will be a staple for many of my clients hair regimens!

    Wonderful!

    Posted by B. on 26th Mar 2015

    After reading reviews, I purchased this and created a recipe based from Henna Sooq's YouTube video on Cassia/Chamomile/Honey. I brewed a tea from the HS Egyptian Chamomile flowers, added it to 50g. of Cassia. I then added 1 g. of HS Amla (was only able to purchase a sample at this time and really was more interested in seeing what the Cassia would do) and a few drops of HS Clary Sage oil. Followed directions for mixing and application and left on for 1/2 an hour. This recipe was more than enough for my very short pixie and left my scalp and hair feeling great. Powder was very fine and really easy to mix and rinse out. Will definitely be repeating this again to see beneficial results over time. Thank you, look forward to ordering more in the future!

    Does what it claims !

    Posted by Hind on 10th Nov 2014

    I used Cassia twice with a 2 weeks interval. The first time I mixed it with warm water and oils (coconut, castor,almonds) but it left an oily feeling on my hair. The second time I simply added warm water and coconut milk, the result was soft, shiny, fuller hair. It seems strenghtened and my curls had great definition. As for loosening, you can barely notice an effect and for those who are worried they still can mix it with Amla. My mom made the same observations on her own hair with a blond tint on her gray hair. She tries to transition from chemical dying and use henna instead, however we need her to keep her hair free of chemical dying for several weeks before applying Henna. I would recommand this product and will purchase it again !

    Love it

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Aug 2014

    Beautiful golden tones on my reddish brown hair. Gets rid of some of the brassiness and in summer I get a strawberry blond color on my highlights when mixed with henna. Outstanding service -- emails are sent to keep you up to date on your order and mine was sent almost right away and arrived the next business day.

    Love it

    Posted by Arianne on 30th May 2014

    This product is amazing. I mixed it with honey, egyptian chamomile tea, lemon juice, aloe vera powder and some of the sukesh ayurveda from Henna Sooq! The whole thing smelled like hay, but I added a few drops of orange & grapefruit essential oils, which toned the smell of the cassia down enough. The application was fun, because the mixture has a really nice velvety texture. I left it on overnight, and when I rinsed it out, my coarse hair was soft, shiny, bouncy and actually did have a golden tone. I'm definitely doing this again.
