Mix in warm water to combination henna powder (may add tea or coffee brews & add a splash of lemon juice) in a bowl until it is the consistency of tooth paste, cover & let it sit at room temperature for 8-12 hours. Apply the paste to a cleaned & dried hair until all the hair is covered with henna paste. Cover hair with plastic wrap for 3-6 hours then rinse henna with warm water until the water runs clear.
