Discover the versatility of the Henna powder
Henna is a natural dye pigment extracted from reducing the henna plant to a fine green powder. It is used as a mask for hair and body and is known for its cooling, anti-inflamatory and conditioning properties. It contains dyeing elements and tanning agents, gum, organic acids, vitamins C and K. Applied on body and hair, it treats many conditions such as dandruff, dry and dull hair, wrinkles and inflamations.
Why To Use:
Mix 1 tablespoon of Henna Mask with boiling water in a jar or coffee mug, stir well and leave it to cool down.
When it becomes warm, stir again until a cream like texture is obtained (you can adjust the consistency of the mask by adding or reducing water).
Apply using an applicator or a brush, starting from the roots towards the tips.
Use gloves and covers as the henna will stain the hands and clothes.
Cover the hair with a plastic shower cap, leave for twenty minutes then wash off using a mild shampoo, no conditioner is necessary.
For severely damaged hair or to use as hair coloring, you can leave the mask for up to two hours.
When used as a body mask, apply in a circular motion on a damp skin.
Scrub your skin with it to maximize the absorption of skin nutrients and to remove the dead skin.
Rinse off using a mild soap.
