When it comes to hair colour, henna may be an old and organic option, but one that requires just as much care. If you’re wondering about how you can make the best use of henna for your hair without much post-colouring damage, here are a few effective tips…
how to take care of henna hair

Dryness care

Henna hair dye is a natural, chemical-free hair dye but it can dry your hair out. That’s why you need to keep your hair well moisturised and deeply conditioned. One way to do this is by adding moisturising oils to the henna recipe itself, the other way is to deep condition your hair with natural oils like almond and castor.

Texture care

Henna can adversely affect the texture of your hair. It is known to loosen curls and, over time, make hair rougher. Adding amla powder to your henna hair recipe can help curb this after-effect.

Scalp care

It is important to use a good shampoo and conditioner to get the henna out of your hair once your treatment is done. If not done properly, your scalp could get itchy. In our experience, the Dove Advanced Care Colour Repair Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner Range for Coloured or Highlighted Hair is well suited for this purpose.

Colour care

Henna is a semi-permanent hair dye and the only way to get rid of it is to grow your hair out or get a haircut. Plus, natural henna only dyes orange and red tones, so you might want to think it over before committing to it.
