How To Apply Henna

Monday, November 26, 2007

My mum uses Henna on her white hair. Nowadays she dyes her hair often because her white hair grows very fast and only after one week hair roots become white-gray and its very noticable. I've seen her dyeing her hair done at home.

The use of henna to dye hair is really simple and easy. When using henna as a hair dye, actually you can mix henna with olive oil, black coffee, red wine, bit of lemon juice and boiled tea water. Then, mix it all up in a plastic bowl and let it sit overnight covered with a wrapper.

Apply it on your hair the next day. Wrap the top of your head with the plastic cap and leave it in for 3 hours. Rinse well with with cool water. It is not necessary that you would get the required reddish effect as soon as you apply henna because it takes a few days for the henna to oxidize and change color. The end result is Orangey-reddish tones but with oxidation, henna will turn darker and redder. That's how my mum did it to her white hair.

It is always better to perform a small test before the aplication of henna because in any case henna does not give any gurantee any hair color. Thus it is advised that you always perform the hair test so that you have a better understanding of your hair type and you can make your own decision whether or not the henna product is safe for your hair.

Thus after performing the test you should be very well satisfied as the results obtained by the test will be the same as the result that will be obtained by the application of henna on your hair.
