Henna Wash Day

Henna Wash Day

The rituals of henna will soothe your soul, heart and mind. Your hair wash day is part of self love and care that we all need to indulge in more often. I’m sharing one of my favorite henna wash day recipes. It’s easy, quick and so nourishing. This is the DIY henna recipe your hair will soak up. Deeply nourishing and strengthening, everything you’ll need for your wash day.⠀ Our Recipe Note: this recipe is enough for shoulder length hair of average thickness. You may need more or less depending on your hair).⠀ Pour 100 grams of henna powder into your bowl. Preferably glass or stainless steel bowl. ⠀ Add enough warm distilled water to create a thick mud of the henna paste. ⠀ Add about 3-4 tbsp of your favorite conditioner (if you need more or less then adjust as desired). We recommend Honey Hemp by Oyin Handmade and it smells divine!⠀ Add about 2-3 tbsp of our Organic Argan oil. ⠀ Add 5-7 drops of our Rosemary essential oil. Mix everything really well. Should you need more liquid then do add more and if it’s too runny then you can add more henna powder to thicken it.⠀ Allow this recipe to rest covered and undisturbed for 30 minutes and longer if you want to pull some of the color from the henna (up to 4 hours). ⠀ Apply on your hair and allow it to stay in your hair 30-60 minutes or up to 4 hours if you’d like to get a little color. ⠀ Wash out and style as usual. Your hair is going to feel amazing! ⠀...

Not all henna is created equally

Not all henna is created equally

Not all henna powders are created equally. There are blends, henna hair colors, hair quality and even fake henna. It honestly makes it near impossible to choose what might work best for you. We do believe there will be some trial and error in the whole process but it shouldn’t be so complicated. Henna Blends This is found often times in your local Indian or Middle Eastern store. Sometimes even online. A henna blend would be where the henna is in the ingredients listed but there may be several other herbs in this mix. Blends are not ideal for coloring because they dilute the main ingredient that produce the color which is the henna powder. A lot of blends are also sitting on the shelves for more then a year or so at a time typically. So they aren’t typically very fresh. Freshness is important similarly to you cooking with fresh herbs. You also get better results. Henna Hair Colors The most confusing and misleading product in the henna marketplace. Henna is being sold as colors when in fact henna is not a range of colors. Henna is a plant that produces only a reddish tinted dye/stain. A plant naturally does not make two colors. There are no types of hennas. Henna is a single plant of it’s kind. Basically a henna hair color box is a blend of many coloring herbs including henna to create boxed hair dye that sometimes contains even PPD (chemical), compound henna and metallic salts. Henna hair colors also give a false sense of the color results that you’ll receive from using a henna...

Henna + Hibiscus + Cocoa Butter

Henna + Hibiscus + Cocoa Butter

Henna + Hibiscus + Cocoa Butter = moisture rich hair recipe. Mix your henna and hibiscus petal powder together in a bowl. Equal proportions of each or as desired. In another bowl over low heat slowly melt your cocoa butter wafers until fully melted. Allow to cool and then pour into your powder mix. Mix well until consistency of a thick yoghurt. You can add water, coconut milk or more cocoa butter if your mix is too dry. Apply onto your hair by sections. I’ve always found that doing four sections work the best. I usually start at the front and work towards the back. Once completed, wrap your hair and allow to stay in your hair 1-2 hours. Rinse out, dry and style as usual. Gorgeous moisture rich hair perfect for your new Fall/Winter regimen. We recommend this hair conditioning treatment be repeated every 2-3...
