    First, after choosing ur henna brand (vatika henna powder, vlcc, godrej nupur, banjaras), put it in a iron vessel and grind beetroot with four to eight cloves and extract the juice and mix with henna powder and make paste like thing. Then pour lemon juice on (1 to 3 tea spoons). Set the paste for minimum one night in the vessel. Stir it occasionally. Then apply it and set it in ur scalp for more than three hours. Wash it alone. Not with any shampoo. Dry ur hair and apply ur normal daily hair oil and wash next day. This method will secure the henna colour for long time. You can add some coffee powder for brown tint. (dont use instant powder.)
    If u have dry hair you can mix curd or olive oil. But it is not advisable for long lasting colour, because the colour of henna will not set in hair if the paste is oily.
    Above all, when you are applying henna, make sure that ur scalp is not oily. Shampoo ed hair is recommended.
    All the best!

    To condition your hairor colour your hair. If you want to condition your hair then you can have warmoil massage first and then apply henna. Leave it fo half an hour to one hourand then wash off with a herbal shampoo.

    If it is for colouring purposes do not oil your hair, do itjust like that. Leave it for an hour or two and then wash off with a herbalshampoo.

    Buy one mehandi powderpacket, better if its for hair. Bcoz, some mehandi packets are for hands andsome are for hair. So choose that.
    Then mix it withwater, till it becomes thick, means it would be like paste.
    Soak for one night andthe next day morning u can apply it on ur hair.
    If u want, u can mixegg(the white portion) in that.

    Will adding egg white help condition the hair? I have dry hair, and need to keep it moisturised.

    Yes, egg white is a very good hair conditioner. You can specifically add it when using lemon or henna.
