    Re: Contents to be mixed in mehendi.

    Hey chetya288:
    I generally soak it overnight with 2 spoons of curd. I use the coffee powder diluted water to mix the mehndi instead of plain water. It gives you a dark colour to ur hair and curd will avoid overcolouring of ur hair.
    Hope this helps :)

    Re: how to apply henna for hair

    Hi Rainy,

    Pl dont use cone hennas or hennas for hand designs. it sure contains chemicals which give colour and ll spoil the hairs which are still black.

    Buy shanaz hussain henna and add tea decoction, lemon juice and beetroot juice and make a paste in an iron kadai and leave it overnight and apply it on the hair.

    You can also include cloves to get maroon shade.
