Henna is a natural plant-based dye that can be used on your hair to turn your grey’s brown, reduce dandruff and also condition your hair. Henna contains vitamin E, which helps to soften hair and also tannins, a plant compound found in teas that contributes to their rich colouring. The natural leaves of the plant are rich in proteins and antioxidants. Though with so many hair benefits, applying henna to your hair can be messy and requires so much effort. But if you are planning to do it at home, here are 5 products that you should consider shipping to your place.
This hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested henna cream is safe for use on chemically-treated and coloured hair. Since creating the henna mix can be time-consuming and messy, this super cool cream that is easy to use and bears the benefits of multiple herbs and fruits can be your go-to option.
Before you apply henna, wash your hair with a mild shampoo to clean your hair and scalp and dry your hair. This combo contains a shampoo that helps maintain the integrity of the colour through their gentle cleansing action, a natural hair conditioner containing a heavy concentration of moisturising botanical ingredients like Brazil nut and jasmine and a creamy restorative mask formulated to provide a deep treatment to dry or coloured hair.
DIY Colouring Tools
Comb your hair using a wide-toothed comb to remove all the tangles and part your hair in the centre before applying henna. Using a brush apply the henna paste liberally from the roots towards the tips. These tools including a brush, bowl and a cover-up to protect your clothes from henna spillage are essential for a salon-like treatment at home.
Use a clip to partition each of the sections so that you can apply the henna to each strand fully. As you move from one section to another, twist the section that you have covered with henna and wrap it into a bun.
Once you are done applying the cream, cover your head with a plastic head cover. These reusable covers can protect you from any leakage or henna dripping down to your face or neck.
