Not only can henna add a hint of colour to your hair, sans the chemicals, but it also has many other added benefits. This versatile ingredient is just what you need to improve and maintain the health of your hair.

Save yourself the constant trips to the salon and let henna be your go-to ingredient for getting gorgeous luscious hair.

Applying henna onto your hair not only makes it glossier and smoother but henna also has hydrating properties which help your hair retain the moisture in the cuticles.

Apart from its naturally cooling properties, henna also has anti-microbial properties i.e. it acts as an agent that helps to kill bacteria as well as to hinder their growth. Plus, it also helps remove the excess grease present in your hair and conditions it.
