Henna Recipe

If you haven't yet given in to this form of natural coloring , we hope this post shows you how simple it really is!

We know that the first application may seem complicated because the process is different from conventional chemical paints, but we are sure that once you try it you will realize that, in addition to the fantastic results, applying henna is not that complicated.

How to use henna?

Choose to apply henna to dry hair, on a day when you haven't washed it - ideally, the last wash was two days ago.

What you will need:
- A bowl for mixing
- A hairdressing brush or gloved hands
- A towel (that you don't mind getting dirty)
- Your favorite henna + hot tea

Choose the color you prefer - Black, Brown, Copper or Blonde . You can also mix different hennas to achieve the tone you are looking for!

  1. Mix the henna with hot tea, you can also use just water if you prefer. The ideal ratio is 3 tablespoons to 3/4 cup of liquid. If you're looking for a dark color, try using black tea. If you are looking for a lighter tone, use chamomile infusion. The mixture needs to have a consistency like mud or Greek yogurt - you don't want it too liquid, so it doesn't run, nor too thick, so it can apply well. You can always adjust the consistency, with more liquid or more henna .

    Let the mixture cool and it will be ready to be applied!

  2. Separate your hair into different parts, brushing each one with the mixture you prepared, from the roots to the ends. In subsequent applications, you can even touch up just the roots.

  3. Tie your hair up and cover it with a cap or even cling film and then put on the towel. Wait 3 hours (yes, it may seem like a long time, but trust me, it goes by very quickly!).

  4. After this time, wash your hair well and apply your favorite conditioner .
