A Hair Conditioner with Stems of Henna Plant
Neutral henna powder is made with the stems of the lawsonia plant (henna) milled to powder. In this blend (95%) henna stem powder mixed with (5%) lichen, that coats the hair shaft with a protein. It will not produce color change, but will treat hair to improve texture and enhance shine and brilliance of hair color, conditioning deeply, treating the damaged hair and adding definition to the hair.
Approximately 1/2 cup (4oz) of henna powder may be enough for shoulder length hair, 1 cup for below the shoulder, 2/3 cups for waist length.
Suggested recipe to make Henna paste & use it:
Mix in warm water to neutral henna powder (may use tea or coffee brews and 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.
Warning: Do not use on broken skin. May cause allergic reaction in some people. Do not use henna if you have G6PD deficiency.
