Henna Recipe for Hair



100 grams Henna powder

Distilled Water

**Pure essential oil optional (rosemary or tea tree for scalp problems)

Basic Paste Recipe:

  • Slowly add water to henna powder, stir until a pudding-like consistency is achieved.
  • Add 1 teaspoon – 1 tablespoon of essential oil (if using), mix well.
  • Let mixture sit for a couple of hours if possible
  • Apply Vaseline or lotion around your hairline, ears, and neck
  • Wearing gloves, apply henna to roots using a brush or bottle, working down to ends of hair.
  • Wipe any henna off of skin to avoid stains
  • Cover hair with plastic or a shower cap for at least one hour (more for gray hair or if you have not hennaed your hair before)
  • Rinse henna from hair. For best results wait a day or so before shampooing.
  • Apply conditioner if desired.
  • Apply a monthly touch-up to roots to maintain color and cover grays. Or reapply allover hair to deepen color each month.
