  • Put oil on your forehead, cheeks and ears. Cover the shoulders with a towel.
  • Divide the hair into four sections and With your gloved hands, apply henna paste by starting from the scalp to the tip..
  • You can apply it in handfuls, making sure all of your hair is covered, including all hair that is underneath.

  • If you get henna on your ears, neck, forehead or anywhere else, make sure you wipe it off immediately.
  • It will not hurt your scalp like regular commercial hair color, but when left on skin it will stain.

  • Depending on the desired intensity of red that you want, leave the henna mixture on your hair for an hour or more.
  • Adding a heat source will help with the intensity of color. Sitting in the sun or just placing a plastic cap on your head will help.
