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)

My hair has been going through changes - I believe mostly due yo aging as it began when i turned 39 (i'm now 40). I have thick, curly, waistlenghth, 3b/c and 4a textured hair and began to experience severe dryness, frizzing, shedding, and breakage. In addition, my curl pattern greatly relaxed and became more of a loose wave. I have not colored or chemically treated my hair in 20 years. I was at a loss as deep conditioning wasn't really working because my hair would not retain moisture, and styling products were no longer affective. I began researching and learned about ayurvedic herbs for hair care. I knew about henna - but was unaware of all the other herbs available. I did not try henna because I did not want to affect my natural hair color - dark brown with red undertones. I learned Cassia could provide the same conditioning benefits without the color. I also found out that all a could help restore curl pattern, so I thought I'd try both. All on all, I purchased amla (powder and oil), cassia, hibiscus, and aloe Vera powders from Henna Sooq. The quality is wonderful. Powders are finely ground and fresh. I also ordered fenugreek and marshmellow root powders from an alternate supplier to include in my first hair mask. I mixed all the powders together and added warm honey water and lavender essential oil to create a brownie mix-like consistency. The fenugreek, aloe vera, and marshmallow root added a great deal of slip which not only made application and rinsing very easy, but provided a tremendous amount of moisture.
My hair improved dramically after the very first use. It was soft, moisturized (and retained moisture long afterwards), manageable, strong, almost completely frizz free, and most of my curl bounced back. I did a second application two weeks later and my results were even better. My hair has never looked or felt this good - even when it was "healthy". I did not experience any dryness at all with this mixture. I'm extremely pleased and will continue to use this treatment and purchase my powders from Henna Sooq. The quality of the product makes the cost insignificant.
I also just began creating ayurvedic powder infusions for a hair / scalp oil treatment to be used twice a week and a water-based sprtitz that I will use daily as a leave-in conditioner. The amla oil that I purchased is also good - moisturizing, absorbs easily, and not too heavy.
I'm so glad I ventured on this journey. Thank You.
Used with the Henna Gloss Recipe and loved the results. The powder is very smooth and nicely sifted. Follow Henna Sooq's directions. Will certainly repurchase again. Customer for life :)
