What is Henna powder and what is it used for?
Henna powder is a natural dye made from the leaves of the henna plant (Lawsonia inermis). It has been used for centuries in many cultures for body art, hair coloring and as a natural hair conditioner. Henna powder can be mixed with water to create a paste that can be applied to the skin or hair to create a temporary tattoo or to color hair in shades of red and brown. Henna is also used in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine for various ailments such as skin diseases, wounds, and as a blood purifier.
When used on hair, henna can help to strengthen and thicken the hair, as well as add shine and luster. Henna is a natural alternative to chemical hair dyes, it does not damage the hair like chemical dyes do, it also covers gray hair effectively.
It's important to note that henna powder is not the same as "black henna" which is a harmful product containing PPD (para-phenylenediamine) that can cause severe skin reactions. Always make sure you are using pure henna powder, and if you're unsure about the product, it's best to consult a professional.

Henna powder can be used to colour hair in shades of red and brown. Here is one method to use henna powder for hair:
Mix the henna powder: In a plastic bowl, mix the henna powder with water until it forms a smooth paste. You can also add other ingredients such as lemon juice, tea, or coffee to enhance the color and conditioning effects.
Apply the dye: Apply the henna paste to your hair, starting at the roots and working your way to the ends. Be sure to cover all of your hair evenly.
Wait: Leave the henna paste on your hair for at least 2-3 hours, or even overnight for a deeper color.
Rinse: Rinse your hair thoroughly with water until the water runs clear.
Condition: After rinsing your hair, apply a deep conditioner to your hair to help moisturize and protect it from the effects of the dye.
Note: Henna powder can be mixed with other herbal powders such as indigo powder to achieve different colors. It's important to keep in mind that color results may vary depending on hair type, texture, porosity, and the initial colour of your hair. It's best to do a patch test first, using a small amount of henna powder on a small section of your hair to see how the color turns out before committing to coloring your entire head.
Consult a professional hair stylist if you're unsure of how to use henna powder or if you have any concerns about how it may affect your hair.
