Dying your hair by using henna paste is the best method of coloring your hair because henna paste is made up of natural ingredients and it nourishes your hair. Making henna paste for your hair is slightly different from the one you make it for your skin.
Sometimes it is preferred to add some additional things in henna paste when you are making it for your hair. They are good for your hair and they enhance the color of mehndi as well. Henna itself is a good conditioner. It reduces dandruff and gives your hair a natural shine!
Henna paste with additional ingredients:
Here there are two different recipes for making henna paste for different purposes but some of the basic ingredients will remain the same. For example you need fresh henna paste. You need some acidic liquid to make the paste (e.g. lemon, vinegar, tea or coffee).
Henna as a conditioner:
Mix henna powder with yogurt, lemon juice and an egg. It is a good conditioner for your hair. Leave it for 40-50 minutes. You can also add 1 to 2 teaspoons of olive or coconut oil if your hair are dry.
Henna as a dye:
Take 100 g of henna powder, 50 grams of amla powder, and 50 g of sikakai powder (you can change the quantity according to the thickness of your hair). Add lemon juice in it (one lemon will be enough). To make the paste, add warm water in it. Apply this paste on your hair.

How to apply henna:
Always apply henna paste on freshly shampooed hair. Put on plastic gloves and then apply the paste. Start applying from the roots of the hair and cover your whole hair with henna paste. It will give you a uniform colour. Leave it for at least two hours (even more if you want to).
Wash your hair carefully and remove the henna paste gently.
 It is a Herbal treatment for the hair which has been followed for centuries. It has curative as well as conditioning abilities. Specially prepared henna is used in the treatment of falling hair and dandruff.
