Due to its high anthocyanin content (water-soluble pigment that can appear red, purple or blue depending on ph formulation) hibiscus can discolour almost anything it is added to i.e. if ph of a solution is 1 you will get red and purple colours and if 2-4 you will get blue. These results however are dependent on temperature and light and are purely natural colours so there is no guarantee as to what you will end up with. Hibiscus is not a colorant on its own but please note when experimenting with hair shades that if your existing hair shade is light, white, gray, pink, blue or any mixed chemical colours, the colour can change when interacted with hibiscus. However it does make a beautiful hair mask for beautiful hair.
Hair Dye: combine hibiscus with henna and manjistha for a red dye – cassia obovata can be added for experimental shade.
Hair growth: combine hibiscus with amla, bhringraj, brahmi, shikakai reetha, aloe vera, neem.
