The benefits of Henna for the hair

Henna is an unparalleled conditioner for the hair,  because it not only adds shine and volume to your hair, but also immediately protects your locks from external damage by placing a protective layer over your hair. This traps moisture and nutrients in the hair, resulting in shiny, silky-smooth locks. 

Tip: If you don’t want a color change, use colorless henna twice a month to make your hair voluminous, shiny and healthy.

Henna restores the acid-base balance of the scalp and thereby contributes to the repair of damaged hair and scalp problems such as itching, dandruff and infections.

Tip: if you have scalp problems, always do an allergy test on your forearm first. (The manual of our henna describes how to do this test.) If your skin responds well to the henna, you can use henna twice a month without any problems to make your scalp and hair healthier.

Henna promotes hair growth. In addition to restoring and balancing hair and scalp, henna can also help reduce hair loss and other scalp problems. Since it is absolutely natural, it has no adverse effect on your hair, which means you can enjoy your colored hair without any side effects. Or opt for colorless henna  if you don’t want a color change, but you do want to improve the structure of your hair.

With henna you color and care for your hair at the same time and therefore henna is more economical to use than chemical hair dye. In addition to using henna as a hair dye, you do not need any special, expensive conditioner or shine agents to make your colored hair look beautiful. However, when you color your hair with chemical hair dyes you damage your hair which can make it brittle, dull and unmanageable and you have to use all kinds of expensive care and styling products to keep it in place and look beautiful. Henna is therefore more than just hair dye; it is an all-round product that makes your hair more beautiful and healthier. Dyeing with henna also prevents your hair from thinning, as is unfortunately often the case with chemical hair dye in the long run.

Henna covers gray hair in a completely natural and safe way. Pure henna is the only color that directly covers gray hair. 

Diy Recipe Henna Hair Conditioner

You can easily make your own natural hair conditioner at home by mixing 1 cup of colorless henna with half a cup of freshly brewed regular tea, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of yogurt. Apply this mixture evenly all over your hair and leave it on for at least an hour. Rinse well with warm water. 

Note: lemon juice can brighten the color of your hair, if you don’t want that, you can leave it out and use only tea and yogurt. Do you just want to light up your hair? use chamomile tea instead of regular tea.
