Hey gorgeous people…Hope you are all doing well. I’m back with an other blog which is related to Henna application. In this article we are going to see the uses of henna and it’s advantages. Let’s get started..
There is a story about the history of henna being used on hair. The summary of it is like, Cleopatra wanted a unique colour for her hair. Many of her staff tried many dyes but nothing lasted. Finally, Cleopatra found that henna when used on hair can give a long lasting orangish red dye on the hair.
Let’s move on to the advantages of henna. Henna is best known for its healing and cooling properties. It makes our hair healthy and it can also used as a treatment for any kind of infection. It is also the best affordable method to get grey coverage as it gives a red tint on hair.It forms a protective layer on our hair strands and protects it from pollution.It can also calm down headaches, stress,B.P etc,as it has a cooling effect. It can be considered as one of the best and affordable treatments unhealthy and damaged hair. But, once if hair id given a henna treatment, it cannot be given any kind of chemical treatments after that. Colouring, rebonding etc. Cannot be given in that hair. The hair should regrow to do any kind of chemical treatments after henna application. So those who don’t wish to do chemical treatments ever can go for henna.
How to make henna: The best is to use natural henna from the plant. Dry some henna leaves in sunlight for two days and make it into a powder and store in a glass container in a cool and dry place for 1 week. After one week mix it with amla powder, curd, egg, 1 tsp oil and lemon(never use for oil dandruff affected hair) and mix it wel with water boiled with tea leaves. Mix it and make a paste. Beetroot juice can be added for more reddish shade. Now, let’s get into the application.
Take small sections of hair and start applying the paste at the scalp and hair using a brush. Start from the front portion and set it as seen in the picture. It looks like a bowl kept upside down on our head. Leave it for 40 to 50 minutes and rinse it off..As henna make our hair dry, people with dry scalp and dry dandruff can add more oil to the paste and also use a conditioner if necessary. Give a light massage on the scalp while rinsing. And rinse all the henna off.
This is all about the basics of henna. Hope all of you found it helpful. It’s always better to visit a good salon for these treatments or if we make any mistakes it will turn into a big mess.
