Homemade Heena Packs

Henna has natural properties that help it to correlate with proteins and thus repairs and seals the cuticles which aid hair growth. It also strengthens hair and prevents hair breakage along with adding to your mane. It is a natural dye that also helps in preventing premature greying of hair. Henna is said to balance the pH level in the scalp that not only prevents hair fall but also helps in getting rid of common hair problems like itchy scalp and dandruff. Henna has cooling and conditioning properties that soothes the scalp and helps in curing the dryness of hair by restoring the lost moisture. Applying henna helps in treating dry and brittle hair and turning them into sleek, shiny and soft tresses.

How to make homemade Heena Pack:

Henna pack:

To prepare the pack, collect henna leaves from henna plant. Then make a fresh paste by grinding the leaves. Add three teaspoons of amla powder into it. You can also add one teaspoon of coffee powder. Take a small amount of curd and mix all the ingredients. Apply the pack on hair and leave it till it dries. Then wash it off with a mild shampoo.

Heena with Mustard oil:

Boil around 250 ml of mustard oil with a handful of henna leaves till the leaves are burnt in the oil. After the oil has cooled down, sieve it through a muslin cloth and store it. Regular massage with this oil will lead to reduction in hair fall and increase in hair growth. This oil can be stored for a month. Lemon juice or a teaspoon of fresh curd can also mixed with oil before massaging it to the scalp for better results.

Fenugreek seeds with Heena:

Soak a teaspoon full of fenugreek seeds overnight, grind it into a paste the next morning and mix this with the henna mustard oil mix. Apply this mixture to hair and scalp and leave it for 30 minutes. Wash and condition your hair as usual. Regular application of this mixture will surely help you to get a healthier scalp and healthier hair.

Instead of using synthetic products, use Henna for hair. Go ahead and give your hair the much needed love. If anyone has more heena packs for healthy, shiny and strong hair then reply me in comments.
