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.

    Amazing!

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Jan 2014

    Mind blown (first time ever using this stuff): 1. SO easy. 2. The scent is earthy, grassy, and I swear it made my tummy feel better than it has in days. 3. My hair feels much stronger; smoother cuticle, more shine, curls are bouncier, split ends all look sealed (haven't cut my hair in literally years). 4. The colour is great, even though it's dying over top of a home made turmeric dye that I had used about a week ago. I was concerned that the two would create some kind of florescent offspring in my blond hair, but the cassia just evened out the colour and gave it a rich depth. 5. Overall: my natural blond curls now look like perfect golden Botticelli painting curls.

    Cassia / Henna for strawberry blonde

    Posted by anica on 6th Dec 2013

    I recently purchased Cassia from Henna Sooq. I live in Vancouver and couldn't find Cassia anywhere and then I discovered Henna Sooq online in my research and found the website very helpful, with a ton of information and tips. The product arrived from the other side of the country in less than a week (which is record time for Canada Post ;)) I mixed 80% Cassia with 20%henna and left it on my hair for 1 hour. It's organic and a very nice quality product and I will be purchasing all of my henna from Henna Sooq from now on. The color turned out really nice, the product came out easily in the shower and I am 100% happy with the result.

    Soft, silky and amazing SHINE!

    Posted by Jameelah on 5th Nov 2013

    First of all let me say how happy I am with the processing and shipping time, my order was processed and shipped the same day and I received it 2 days later! The cassia itself is very good quality, finely milled and easily mixes to a very silk,y creamy paste. Ive used henna for a few years and decided to try cassia because I still wanted the conditioning but didn't want red tint in my hair anymore. I was so pleased that I got the same thickening as with henna, but I got much more shine! My hair has never been as glossy as it is now. There is also a lovely silkiness to my hair that I've never had with henna. Also I found that I didn't experience the dryness I get after a henna. So I didnt have to deep condition any longer than usual. In fact, although it felt definetly stronger, it was soft and pliable. 300g bags was enough to generously coat my b 3c/ 4a brastrap length hair. I let it sit for about 30 mins before applying and left it on for about 2hrs. Clean up was a breeze! I didnt have to worry about staining so no need for gloves either. So of you want the benefits of henna without the color I highly recommend cassia.

    Healthy Hair again

    Posted by Marie on 15th Jun 2013

    I used the cassia obovata with 1 tbsp of henna on my chemically treated hair overnight. At first I didn't notice a difference. By day 3 though my grey's had become a nice golden blond and my dry brittle hair had bounce and no more frizzies. I love the products. Next month I will add 2 tbsps henna to increase the red highlights.

    Absolutely the best

    Posted by Judiy - Toronto on 16th Apr 2013

    I recently purchased this wonderful product. It smells very nice, unlike the other plant based products you can buy in health food stores. Also the texture is just smooth and feels like velvet on your head. The colour turned out absolutely beautiful, it DOES give you a gorgeous golden tone, if your hair is not too dark. Mine is considered dark blonde or light brown. I mixed the Cassia with warm water and a teaspoonful of vitamin C powder, and left it stand for 12 hours. Before applying I added some Camellia oil and a few drops of Ylang-Ylang. Left it on my hair for 5 hours
