KeraVada Henna Color Free Protein and Damage Repair Review

KeraVada Henna Color Free Protein and Damage Repair

KeraVada was kind enough to send me some products from their line for review on my blog. I did a bit of research on the company beforehand and was excited about what I found.

After careful consideration, the first product I chose was the Henna Color Free Protein and Damage Repair Herbal oil Treatment. I’ve been wanting to try henna for its conditioning and protein properties but was concerned about hair color changes. (The henna in this product is color free.)

So how did it fare? Let’s find out.


What I Liked:

  • All natural ingredients

KeraVada products contain no mineral oil, parabens, petroleum, or -cones. I can pronounce all seven ingredients on the list, which are natural and can be purchased at your local vitamin/health food store: grapeseed oil, rice bran oil, coconut oil, olive oil, henna, rosemary, and tulsi.


  • Lightweight yet moisturizing

This oil isn’t greasy or heavy. I was a bit concerned because it contains coconut oil, which has proved a tad heavy for me in the past. But this treatment left my hair sufficiently moisturized without being sticky or gummy. It’s a fantastic spritz when mixed with water.


  • Sweet, subtle smell

You can choose a scented or unscented version of this product. I was given a bottle in cotton candy. I never would have chosen this scent on my own, yet I found it sweet without being overpowering. It’s very strong at first, especially if you’re not used to it, but by the next day it fades and smells delicious.

What I Didn’t Like:

  • Wasn’t impressive as a hot oil treatment

One of the KeraVada Henna Color Free Protein and Damage Repair suggested uses is as an intensive hot oil treatment. I used it as directed and for the required time (40 minutes) and saw lackluster results. It left my dreads slightly crunchy and, for some reason, super stinky, so much so that I considered rewashing my hair. I’m guessing this was because of the sweet candy smell being enclosed for so long. Luckily, the smell was gone the next day.


  • Expensive

Right now KeraVada has this oil on sale for $8.99 but I believe the regular price is $15.99 or $16.99. (I can’t verify this because they replaced the normal price with the sale price.) Although they’re good ingredients, I wouldn’t pay so much for a bottle of oils.


I’m happy with this product overall. If you’re looking for a light, non-greasy daily moisturizer or revitalizing spritz, I recommend KeraVada’s Henna Color Free Protein and Damage Repair. For hot oil treatments, look elsewhere.

  1. Your hair isn’t really light enough for there to be much of a color change with henna. Only the treys. Plus if you really want to try it, you can follow it with an indigo treatment to take any slight color change away.

    This product does seem a bit pricey. I like to try new all natural stuff but I’ll pass lol I will stick with henna

    • Hey, sis. Thanks for the info. I’m glad to hear that. I’ve also heard it can cause texture changes but I’m not worried about that. My naps are good and strong 😉

      A little goes a long way with this product but I still think it’s overpriced.
