Grey Hair: Henna for Dark Hair

For normal hair: Use a paste made of henna and curds.

For oily hair: Use a paste made of henna, lime juice and dried gooseberry (amla, nellika ) powder. This not only cleans the scalp but also lends a lustre to it.

Henna for the hair Style

Henna is an excellent conditioner for the hair. For dry hair it is better to avoid it or use it as sparingly as possible, since henna tends to dry out hair further.

Application: Section hair and apply the henna paste all over the scalp and hair ensuring that no portion of hair is left untouched. Pile each section up as you proceed. Cover your head with a shower cap. Soak for at least half an hour. Rinse off thoroughly and shampoo as usual.


Henna as a hair dye: Ideal for those who have a low proportion of grey hair. No need to use chemical dyes! Things required: an iron kadai (frying pan), 1 cup of powdered henna leaves (the powder should be as fresh as possible), 1 tsp dried amla powder, ½ cup strong tea decoction, 1 tsp coffee powder, 1 piece white katha (available in shops selling country medicines or herbs), 1 egg, 1 lemon. You could also add dried and powdered kadukkai and dhaanikkai (The iron kadai will oxidize and add colour)

Preparation: Mix all ingredients except lemon and egg. Add just a little water to make a thick paste in the iron kadai. Leave for at least 12 hours or overnight. Just before applying, add the egg and juice of the lemon. Mix well.

Application: Do not apply oil to the scalp. Section hair and apply the henna paste all over the scalp and hair ensuring that no portion of hair is left untouched. Pile each section up as you proceed. Cover your head with a shower cap. Soak for at least 4 hours. To wash off, first wet hair well. Then slowly loosen the hair stands. Rinse off under running water. Shampoo as usual. The first time the grey hair will turn dark brown (coffee brown). Apply the paste again after a week. Subsequent applications (every month ) will darken it further.

Applying henna on hands/feet

If you are using henna powder: To get a rich red colour, add eucalyptus oil, and tea decoction to the henna paste.

If you are grinding fresh leaves: You can add the sap of ladies finger, tamarind for getting a smooth consistency.

This natural beautifier that is available in plenty is a good alternative to costly chemical treatments that affect the skin adversely.
