Five Cassia Benefits for Hair – Ancient Sunrise Clarity Cassia

Ancient Sunrise Clarity Cassia (cassia auriculata) is a powdered organic plant leaf that is 100% natural and pure. It is a natural plant based hair conditioner  and can be used to condition all hair types. (Yes, even chemically dyed hair and 4c natural hair.) Clarity cassia is super easy to rinse, too!

I have been dyeing my hair with Ancient Sunrise plant dyes for more than ten years. Henna for Hair is a site dedicated for the use of henna for hair color and can answer your questions about using plant based hair color. I consistently achieve beautiful results when I use henna and indigo on my graying hair. Two years ago I started adding cassia for conditioning as well.

The Beginning of my Cassia Obsession

Our staff Cosmetologist incorporated the Cassia into my henna mix for the first time to dilute the paste’s stain. We were trying to avoid darkening the original color. The cassia diluted the mix enough to safely apply over ten years of henna and indigo applications.

See this previous blog for the full story and tips for maintaining graying brown hair with henna and indigo.

Adding the cassia to my henna mix gave my ten year hennaed hair more shine and brightness. It also conditioned my hair and gave me lots of volume. It even tamed those pesky grays at the temples, smoothing out the frizz!

Henna also conditions the hair but adding the cassia takes it up a notch. My hennaed hair is primarily gray now and has gone from poker straight to having a nice wave. The cassia lifts and defines curls and enhances wavy hair.

I applied heat to create a beachy wave after using cassia and the results were great. The waves lasted for three days with a little touch up! The waves fell naturally with minimal styling effort.

The treatment can be applied all over your hair to condition. 4c natural hair types can use the baggie method if the conditioning is only needed on dry ends, too. It’s a great, natural, home conditioning treatment. Damaris and I are working on a blog to show you how to use the baggie method.

Closing Thoughts

Our Clarity Cassia is a pure, organic, fine sift, all natural, plant based hair conditioner. It can be used on all hair types including natural hair, 4c natural hair and chemically treated or damaged hair. Remember to clarify your hair before the application. You can do it the day of or the day before, and Rainwash works great for this. For best results, cassia needs to be dye released 8 -12 hours before application. Instructions here.

Evie’s mix is 1 Cup Clarity Cassia to 2 Tablespoons of henna. The mix was dye released and applied over dishwater blonde creating a brighter medium blonde.

Cassia will not change the color of your hair unless other plant powders are added to the mix. Cassia is used in the Ancient Sunrise kits that allow you to achieve golden blondes, bright reds, and medium blonde shades. Our Blonde, Fire, Sunshine, and Chai hair kits contain cassia and other plant powders. (Psst! You can save 10% on all of our cassia products until 4/15/23.)
