How To Use Heena

Many of us are very fond of experimenting different hair colors but the thought of harsh chemicals in hair colors stops us to go ahead if, either we are not bold enough to experiment with hair, or the health of our hair is not that good (that is they are not strong enough). But home made hair pack to dye your hair is possible when ever you wana give a brown tint to your hair. Yesterday I tried a heena hair pack mixed with yoghurt to color my black hair, dark brown. Usually after dyeing hair, hair loses its moisture, to cope up with this I have added yoghurt.
Best things about using home made hair dye is that along with giving color, it conditions the hair, there is no smell of chemicals, no side effects that often occurs with chemical hair dye.

Steps to make this hair dye pack (How To Mix Henna)

1. Take a big bowl and put half cup heena powder. (for long hair, the quantity of heena can be increased). I have taken a plastic katori so that the mehandi doesn’t stain my daily use utensils.

2. Now add 2 big spoon full of yogurt in the bowl and mix well.

3. Boil 2spoon of good quality Tea in 1 cup water and keep boiling till it reduces to half cup. Strain the tea leaves and discard. Add the concentrated black tea to the heena-yogurt mixture and make a fine paste. Tea is full of nutrient to be given to hair. It imparts color too.
