    Applying henna

    Dear Sravanthi,

    Why do you want to apply henna? to condition your hair or colour your hair. If you want to condition your hair then you can have warm oil massage first and then apply henna. Leave it fo half an hour to one hour and then wash off with a herbal shampoo.
    If itis for colouring purposes do not oil your hair, do it just like that. Leave it for an hour or two and then wash off with a herbal shampoo.

    Hiii

    I can suggest u one way of preparing henna.
    Buy one mehandi powder packet, better if its for hair. Bcoz, some mehandi packets are for hands and some are for hair. So choose that.
    Then mix it with water, till it becomes thick, means it would be like paste.
    Soak for one night and the next day morning u can apply it on ur hair.
    If u want, u can mix egg(the white portion) in that.
    If u want hair color, u can apply directly like that. And keep it for more than 1 hour.
    Otherwise, first apply oil more and then apply henna.
    Keep it for one hour on ur hair and then take head bath. But u've to wash ur hair properly with lots of water.

    I hope u'll find this info useful.
    Gayathri.

    hi dear,
    there r some tips frm me also .

    1- u can make the paste with tea water this will give ur hair brown colour . simpl y u hv to boil tea leaves in water and u can use this water after straining it .

    2- also u can add coffee to get that coffish colour in ur heena .

    3- if u wish u can add beetroot paste to get this shade .

    4-if u don't wish to get any shade u can add yougurt in heena this heena will work as a home conditioner .

    6- if u hv problem of hair fall add eggs in heena this will give strength to ur hair.

    7-if u hv dandruff add lemon juice in heena to get rid of dandruff .

    8 - u can add amla powder, ritha powder and shikakai powder also to get good results .

    9- if u don't want colour frm heena u can add olive oil also this will make ur hair smooth .

    10-generaly heena makes ur hair dry so after using heena don't use shampoo that day . just rinse heena properly with water . then after making ur hair dry apply oil for whole night then next day do shampoo . like this ur color will remain for longer .

    i hope this will help u . do tell me if something is not clear to u .

    happy hair care .
