About Henna Hut? and Harvest Moon? Cosmetics
Henna Hut? was born October 2006 and officially launched in June of 2007. Jamie and Rodney Harper pioneered the natural beard dye industry and re-invented the natural hair dye industry, with both investigative intuition and perseverance. We never copied anyone and only learned by our own experiences. We had never heard of henna hair dye or chemical free hair dye and came up with the idea while at a festival doing henna tattoos, when a lady walked up and said she did her hair with it. At that very moment a light bulb went off. Doing research we found no one was mixing any henna or indigo and basically sold it in a zip lock baggy and had people mix it themselves.
It was when we started doing research that we found thousands of people with "secret" or "summer" recipes. This intrigued our curiosity and started the forward motion of what made Henna Hut's? Harvest Moon? what it is today.
We also soon learned that henna is a perishable commodity and that a whopping 95% in stores was bad and even worse 90% on the internet was also in perish. This sent us on a quest to India that would never be the same.
After going through several hundred henna fields and growers, we learned many things that made great henna and horrible henna. The land needed nourishment and it simply could not set out over time.
Our mission was simple: Give people the absolute best highest quality henna regardless of how much it cost us. Help the planet and help those that are sick from chemical hair dye and cancer.
It took two years to find that quest and at 7 years later we have several suppliers and have a licensed trade mark in India and many other countries. This is and still continues to be the most challenging business in our lives, while it took over 3 years to make a profit, we never gave up.
To this date, Henna Hut? has mixed henna over 2,000 different ways with other natural ingredients. Our biggest goal is to help the people have gotten sick from chemical hair dye and those that chemical hair dye is bad for them from the start. Another major impact is our planet. Millions of gallons and packets of chemical hair dye go down the drain each and every year. Our goal is planet and people awareness and the health of our customers.
