Mehandi Paste

I prefer using most of the ingredients home made so that purity can be maintained at its best.Otherwise you can use some trusted brands to get the best results.Mix all the ingredients and make a paste with water and leave it overnight in an iron vessel.Iron will help blacken the mehandi. The paste is now ready for use.Apply it section wise to your scalp and hair and leave it for 2-3 hours covered in a shower cap.I prefer to keep it for a longer time as it helps my premature gray hair get better colour. Wash off henna with plain water or using a mild shampoo.Oil your hair and leave it for atleast one day if possible.This will help enrich the colour.
 Mehandi naturally conditions hair and strengthen roots.If you have premature hair graying then use a henna to cover gray instead of chemical hair colour as henna helps cover the gray and prevent further graying whereas chemicals are just a temporary solution with side effects.

1)Apply henna to clean hair for better results.
2)Mehandi should not be used too frequently as it will dry the hair hence limit its usage.
3)Apply a nail paint on nails to prevent them from staining.
4)Use plastic gloves to avoid henna stain.
5)If you just want conditioning then leave henna for an hour and if you want colour then leave it for 2-3 hours.

Most of the Indian ladies are aware of how to use mehandi on hair.But if you are not then I hope so this article was useful.Do leave your comments and let me know your style of applying henna.Thanks for reading and do not forget to follow me on all my social media's.Take Care...
