Henna is a natural remedy against hair loss. It is also of great use in maintaining healthy hair.

  • The best way to avail the benefits of henna for hair conditioning is by soaking it in plain yogurt and then applying it all over the head.
  • Yogurt prevents the drying of hair and is also responsible for the additional shine.

If you wish to use henna for hair growth, then you should apply it regularly in the form of oil.
Given below is the procedure to make oil of henna!!
  • Heat about ¼ liter of mustard oil in a pot, on a low flame.
  • Crush some fresh henna leaves and put them in the pot containing mustard oil. (Henna leaves are easily available at the stores that specialize in Indian herbs and spices.)
  • Allow the mixture to boil for some time.
  • Turn the flame off when the mixture turns reddish brown.
  • Allow it to cool for some time, before straining it.
  • Strain the oil from the henna leaves and store it in a bottle, only when it has cooled completely.
  • While applying it on your hair, always mix this oil with yogurt or lemon juice. (The quantity of oil would depend upon the length of your hair)
  • Leave it on your hair for a couple of hours, before rinsing it off with warm water.

Applying henna on hair can be a messy and time-consuming job. However, you have an option of using commercially available henna products, but then you will have to compromise on its effectiveness.
