Benefits for hair
In traditional medicine, henna is known as an astringent, purgative, and abortifacient. However, it’s also used on hair.
“Henna has antifungal properties, which make it beneficial for those with dandruff and hair-fall related issues, as well as other microbial problems,” says Dr. Khushboo Garodia, a certified trichologist.
Henna also helps reduce premature graying of hair, because it’s loaded with tannins, a plant compound found in teas that contributes to their rich coloring.
How to mix
Add water by the spoonful to 1 cup of henna to create a thick paste resembling pancake batter.
Add a moisturizing ingredient of your choice (more on this below).
Squeeze in some lemon or apple cider vinegar and mix.
Cover and leave in overnight. You can keep it in the fridge if the weather is hot.
How to apply to hair
Cover your shoulders with an old towel or sheet to avoid staining. Put on gloves.
Starting from the center of your head, take a few strands of hair and start applying henna with the brush. Make sure to cover your scalp with henna, too.
Gather your hair on top as you go. You can use hair clips for this.
Once done, cover your head with a shower cap or a polythene bag.
Leave it on for 4 to 5 hours or overnight, depending on how dark you want the color.
Ideally, apply it during the day and sit under the sun if possible. You can also sit under a dryer. The heat will help with deeper penetration of the color.
How to wash the dye from your hair
Rinse the henna slowly under cool water.
Do not shampoo immediately after. Let the color settle in for a day, and shampoo your hair after 24 hours.
Wipe with a towel and let your hair dry naturally.
How to avoid drying out your hair
Henna can also be mixed with moisturizing ingredients to make a nourishing mask. Garodia recommends this to avoid drying out the hair.
You may also want to oil your hair after washing off the dye. This can help to replace the moisture lost in the dying process and ensure a deep, rich color.
Garodia recommends the following ingredients to make a nourishing mask for your hair during the dying process. Mix the recommended amount with 1 cup of henna powder.
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup yogurt
- 1/2 cup shikakai (Acacia concinna) powder
- 1 cup fenugreek seeds (Soak them overnight, then make them into a thick paste.)
- 1 cup amla (Indian gooseberry) powder
- 1 cup aloe vera gel
- 1 cup flax seeds soaked and made into thick paste
