I am using henna on my hair for more that 12 years. I love colour my hair but my mom said big noooooooooo. She allowed only natural products to hair or skin. She applied henna to my hair to turn my hair to burgundy. And also give additional benefits to my hair..
Henna is one of the ingredients that is used for a lot of beauty reasons. From colouring your hair to using it for mehendi, henna has been one of the best hair care ingredients available to us. Since ancient times, henna has been used as a hair dye. The burgundy brown hair colour is due to the henna leaves which acts as a natural hair dye. Apart from colouring your hair, henna is also good for treating other hair problems. If applied on the hair, reduce hair fall, reduce dandruff, henna helps strengthen the hair, nourishes the scalp and softens the hair.
