How To: dye hair with Henna

dye hair with Henna

Items needed:

  1. 1/4 cup of henna powder
  2. 1/4 cup of lemon juice
  3. plastic conditioning cap (or grocery store bag)

Instructions:

Step 1 Mix henna powder with lemon juice until it is a "goopy" paste. It will have the consistency of mashed potatoes.

Step 2 Part clean hair into three or four large sections.

Step 3 Apply henna to each section. Hair should be saturated with the paste.

Step 4 Cover hair with cap and leave on for several hours.

Step 5 Rinse henna out and condition the hair.

Unless your hair is very light, you will not notice a drastic change. Henna lightens the hair color over time. Repeated henna treatments will change the hair to a more noticeable reddish hue.
