Read the instructions on your henna powder well before you begin, assome powders will require long soak times and others will only need about 30minutes.

While you will get the conditioning benefits regardless of soak time,if you are going for color as well, then it is important to follow themanufacturer's instructions.

Mix 1/2 cup of the henna powder of your choice with 2 tbsp. of olive oil and 1 tbsp. of honey. Combine the ingredients well to create a consistent paste, adding a touch of lukewarm water, if necessary.

Allow the mixture to soak for as long as recommended on the package of your henna powder.

Apply the paste evenly to dry, clean hair from root to tip. Henna can be hard to handle, so it is best to tie up the majority of your hair and work in thin layers from the bottom up.

Once applied, tie up your hair or place it under a shower cap and allow the henna conditioner to set for about 1 hour at least. For deep color and deeper conditioning, the paste can be safely left on the hair even overnight.

As a conditioner, henna strengthens hair and adds shine while making it soft and manageable. If you have really curly hair, you may also find that using henna can loosen curls slightly and may even help to battle frizz.

Henna also works as an anti-fungal treatment, and this can be especially helpful if you suffer from things such as dandruff or other scalp-related issues.
