Henna is very widely used as a natural dye for greying hair as it gives a beautiful brown color with out any side effects. This can be applied very easily and it usually lasts for about 1 month. It is a good option to those who are allergic to the artificial hair dyes.
Henna is also an excellent natural conditioner for hair.They make the hair soft and easy to handle without much effort and I love the beautiful orange brown tint they give to the hair. It is especially beneficial for dry and brittle hair. Henna conditioner can be easily prepared at home by mixing henna powder or fresh henna paste in water, along with little yogurt or coffee powder if you like. Yogurt and coffee powder are optional ingredients, and can be either used or omitted. Once the conditioner is applied in the hair, leave it for about 30 minutes and wash off.
Henna conditioners are excellent for the health of hair strands as well as the scalp. They also help in cleansing the hair and reducing the dandruff. Applying henna can give a cooling effect and may help to prevent the damage to hair strands and cuticles.
