Using henna for hair is hardly the millennial way to either cover greys or get soft and silky hair. However, this evergreen henna hair will change your mind.
Let’s be honest: whenever we think of using henna for hair, we are appalled by the bright orange shade that we see gracing the heads of many an Indian uncles and aunties. And if that doesn’t put us off, then the strong smell of mehendi surely does the job.
But here’s the thing—even though henna or mehendi is considered an old-school way of colouring your hair, this plant has the power to throughly condition your mane. Not just that, if you have a greasy scalp, henna can balance your sebum glands, urging them to produce less oil. Last, but not the least, using henna for hair can also help you deal with boils on your scalp as well as dandruff—thanks to its antimicrobial properties.
But what about the dirty orange colour, you ask? Well, if you’ve got dark hair with little to no greys, then you’ve got nothing to worry about. While henna is excellent for covering white hair, it merely lends a tint to brown or black tresses. That said, if those pesky greys have made a home on your head—then we’ve got a recipe for you that will give you all the benefits henna has to offer minus the shocking orange transformation.
