Henna is an excellent herbal emollient. It makes your hair look transparent and shiny, it also nourishes the hair and makes it soft and silky. The best way to use the benefits of henna to soften hair is to soak it in plain yogurt and then rub it all over the scalp. Yogurt prevents dry hair and makes hair strands shine.
You can also mix henna powder with yogurt and a few drops of lemon juice and rub it on your head and wash your head after an hour. If you want to use henna to darken your hair color, mix henna powder and lemon juice in an iron container and leave it overnight. Of course, if you want your hair to have a reddish brown color, do not use iron utensils at all.
If you use fenugreek seeds in the above mixture, henna will help you eliminate them as an excellent anti-dandruff. To do this, soak a teaspoon of fenugreek seeds in water and leave it overnight, then prepare a paste-like substance from it and mix it with henna. You can also increase its properties by adding a few drops of castor oil and peppermint oil. This material not only makes your hair strong and healthy, but also gives it a beautiful shine.
