How To Use Henna For Hair Growth
What is it?
Henna is a plant. The leaf is used to make medicine.
Don’t confuse henna with henna root (Alkanna tinctoria), also referred to as alkanna root.
Historically, henna has been used for severe diarrhea caused by a parasite (amoebic dysentery), cancer, enlarged spleen, headache, jaundice, and skin conditions. These days, people take henna for stomach and intestinal ulcers.
Henna is sometimes applied directly to the affected area for dandruff, eczema, scabies, fungal infections, and wounds.
Henna is well-known for its hair dying properties. But it can be so much more beneficial for hair. Henna can, and is, used to stimulate hair growth. Henna is considered a good conditioner for your hair, and as a result can make it stronger, thicker, and shinier. It may help to restore the natural pH balance of your hair and scalp, too.
Henna not only keeps issues like dandruff at bay but is also an excellent ingredient for balancing oil production and the pH of your scalp. It removes the excess oil from your hair and also restores the normal functioning of the sebaceous glands
How to use?
Mix henna powder and water in a glass bowl until you get a thick, smooth, and spreadable consistency.
Set this aside for about 12 hours for the color to develop. If you do not want the color to develop, you can start applying the mixture to your hair.
Apply some coconut oil to your hairline, ears, and neck to keep them protected from the color.
Throw on some gloves and start applying the mixture to your hair with an applicator brush. Start from the roots and make your way to the tips.
Wrap each section around the top of your crown as you apply the henna so that you end up with a bun.
Once all of your hair is covered in the mixture, cover your head with a shower cap and wait for a couple of hours.
Rinse the henna out of your hair with shampoo. Skip conditioning.
Let your hair air dry.
