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.

Cassia + Amla + Bhringraj

Cassia + Amla + Bhringraj

Stronger, healthier hair with a beautiful shine. What can be better then what Mother Earth has for us to beautify ourselves with? Cassia + Amla + Bhringraj = longer, stronger hair while promoting hair growth.  Mix your cassia and amla and bhringraj together in a bowl. Equal proportions of each or as desired. You can read this blog article to find out how much you’ll need in total for your hair length and thickness: How much henna and Ayurvedic herbs to use on your hair? Adding your liquid. We recommend water, conditioner or coconut milk. Mix well until consistency of a thick yoghurt. 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. Do you have a favorite Ayurvedic hair  strengthening recipe you’d love to share? Please comment...
