There are number of hair colours or dyes available in the market, which are either temporary or permanent. We all love colouring our hair, I am no exception! For people who love copper-reddish hair, here is a natural hair dye for you- ‘HEENA’.
The word ‘natural’ itself is enough is influence you buy this natural dye made from henna leaves! This particular natural dye gives nice copper-reddish tones to your hair which are semi-permanent. Read on to know more about Henna:
Henna seals the oil into your hair, leaving it super conditioned, and it helps close off the cuticle. After a henna (true or neutral) treatment, you can expect less frizz, more manageability, and a very healthy shine.
Henna also helps protect hair from sun damage. As a matter of fact, Henna has gained commercial leverage as a hair conditioner and to stimulate hair growth; scientific studies have even proven that Henna is a better hair conditioner than other commercial conditioners. Regular use texturizes hair, giving it more body and making it visibly fuller.
Henna dye tends to stain everything it comes in contact with. So, before applying it onto your hair, make sure you wear gloves, apply Vaseline on the forehead and skin surrounding your hair and apply it when you are in the bathroom.
Henna will not even-out your hair tones. If you have highlights, even after you dye your hair with henna, you might still see your highlights but with reddish tones to it.
RECIPE FOR HENNA HAIR COLOR:
Things you need-
- Henna powder or fresh leaves (whatever is available)
- Enough aloe vera juice or gel (fresh or organic commercial)
In a bowl, add henna powder. If you have fresh henna leaves, you might want to add it in a blender to prepare paste. However, henna powder works the best for pigmented color.
Add in aloe gel or juice and mix well.
Apply it on your dry, washed hair and let it sit for good 4-5 hours before washing off.
Overall, henna is a good and all natural hair dye with almost no side effects! And is worth trying for people who love hair colouring. But make sure, you do not attempt chemical colouring on henna as they don’t go well with each other! READ MORE – Fade scar with rice
