Roselle, also known Jaswand, is a herbal powder used for skincare. Its positive effects have been confirmed in clinical trials.
This powder also has colouring properties and provides nuances that range between pink and plum. With regular use, Roselle ensures soft and manageable hair, that is strong and shiny. At the same time, it fights dandruff formation as well as irritation of the scalp.
It has antioxidant and astringent effects on the skin and is thus ideal for alleviating unpleasantness caused by acne. In addition, Roselle is rich in vitamin C. When applied to the face, it is advised to mix the powder with other plant powders (especially with clay) in order to prevent any colouring from occurring.
- Mix the powder with booking water until a yoghurt-like consistency is formed.

When using herbal hair colors and powders, some basic things to consider are:
- Herbal hair colors to fit like a film around each hair, which is why your natural hair color significantly influences the results.
- Dyeing a test strand is strongly recommended!
- Using plant-based dye on chemically colored hair can lead to unexpected results. Again, make sure you sample color a test streak!
- Bleached or lightened hair is very responsive to herbal hair colors and powder: the colors could be more intense or could react with the chemical color to produce a green, blue or even purple color.
- Basically it is not recommended to use the natural dyes with bleached or lightened hair as the color results could have extreme deviations
- Please visit a competent hairdresser familiar with herbal hair colors if you would like to use the dye on bleached or lightened hair.
- Herbal hair colors cannot make your hair lighter or bleach it. Only chemical colors can lighten your hair color.
- Plant powder hair colors such as Senna, Cassia, Jerusalem thorn, etc., are simple to use and require no special measures.
- When dying chemically treated, permed, or chemically dyed hair, make sure to test a strand of hair first!
Herbal hair colors and powders should be mixed only in a bowl/ with utensils made of glass, ceramics or wood, as these natural products react with metal and can therefore lead to undesired color results.
