Reader Query :  Help! Henna Is Damaging My Hair

The reader told that she had few strands of hair which were turning grey at the age of 26 and that everyone around her don’t approve of coloring hair with hair color products available in stores. And using henna has made her hair dry and damaged so she needs advice on it!  There is not doubt that Henna tends to leave the hair texture dry and the silky strands become rough and frizzy.

Well, this is for all those beauties who are dealing with pre-mature grey strands of hair!

First of all, coloring of hair with chemical hair color is certainly not a first preference for many of us as it is believed that the chemicals tend to add to the pre-mature greying of hair which is not true. The cheap hair color products available these days which claim to protect and color hair in a cheap way are nothing but harmful chemicals.

Hair color should always be from a reputed brand which offers a complete range of hair care products. One should always use the hair products which are specially formulated for colored hair like shampoo, conditioner & serums.

DIY Hair Mask Recipe


This is a great DIY recipe for dry and damaged hair. It deeply conditions the scalp and nourishes the hair roots which give shine and silky luster to the mane. Mix coconut oil and honey and massage the mixture on the scalp.Keep it for around 40-50 minutes and put a shower cap to prevent any dripping. Now rinse the mask thoroughly with a mild shampoo and let the hair dry naturally. You will definitely experience the change and hair will become soft & smooth with and extra shine.

  1. Hi dear, I would differ from your views, heena never ever makes hair dry or brittle, if use original heena made with fresh leaves , it will never dry your hair, it rather strengthens hair shaft, makes it lustrous, however, almost all brands including the herbal ones in market, all contain hidden chemicals, or metallic block colors which are added to heena for enhancing the color, one my my closest friend was doing her Phd regarding heena itself, she tested some 50 samples of heena from market and concluded almost all have chemicals which makes hair dry and rough. but when freshly prepared heena is used it neevr makes hair dry, it is a big myth that heena makes hair dry.
