How to Remove Henna From Hair in 3 Quick Ways

Henna is a permanent hair dye, so it is very hard to remove it from your hair.

Normally, henna is vivid for about 6 weeks, then it slowly starts to fade away.

There are three natural and safe ways to remove henna from your hair: using oils (olive, coconut, argan, etc)., lemon juice, or raw honey.

The safest way to remove the permanent hair coloring of henna dye is by using oil treatment.

Use Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, and Other Oils


Oil treatment involves soaking your entire hair with henna in a reasonably large amount of oil.

Use Lemon Juice

Lemon has a natural bleaching agent in citric acid, which helps gradually lighten skin and hair.


The acidic properties paired with direct sunshine can strip henna off your hair. However, the same properties can also make your hair dry throughout the process.

Use Raw Honey

When you don’t have a good relationship with lemons, you can always use natural hair color removers, other than harsh acidic strippers, to remove henna hair dye.


Honey, aside from the fact that it tastes sweet, produces hydrogen peroxide when mixed with other components, such as water. In turn, hydrogen peroxide helps in removing henna from hair.
