Henna Hair for Beginner

Why should anyone be using henna? Henna colors the cuticle on the scalp, giving it rich color, while still retaining the natural texture of your hair. Unlike chemical hair coloring, henna dye doesn’t penetrate the inside layer of your hair (known as the cortex), so that the hair holds its natural moisture and elasticity. It will also help make any hair lighter. It takes about five minutes for a full coat of henna to dry, and the color is usually more even and less streaky than when you use traditional hair coloring products. It also helps to moisturize your hair after application, so that it stays shiny and strong for as long as possible.

Henna can be applied at home with a soft cloth and a little dab of henna dye. Most people like to add one coat of henna dye to the top of their head before bed. You can either apply it once a month or as often as you feel the need to use it. If you want to add a little more color to your hair, you can purchase ready-made henna shades or spray them onto your hair in your favorite color. The amount of color is up to you. If you are looking for a quick and easy way to update your hair color or if you just want to have a new color you know you will look great in, henna is definitely a good choice. After applying it to your hair, just wait a day or two and see how much of a difference it makes!
