Henna has been known for dying or coloring hairs for years. But do you know that Henna has more benefits than just coloring?
Here are some benefits of Henna:
1. It is a natural hair dye
Obviously, it is used to dye hair but we use natural ingredients for our products. If you are reluctant to use chemicals on your scalp but want to cover the gray areas of your hair, henna is a natural alternative. Not only is it healthier for your hair but is also cost-effective for your wallet!
2. It reduces hair fall
Henna directly affects the scalp, assisting in improving follicle health. This helps curb hair fall and also prevents and corrects hair thinning.
3. Conditions Hair
Henna is a deep conditioner that leaves your hair feeling absolutely gorgeous. Henna builds a protective barrier around each one of your hair shafts, locking in moisture and keeping your hair conditioned. It can be especially beneficial when used in hair packs in combination with other hydrating ingredients. Henna helps minimize issues such as hair breakage and split ends. Try our Herbal Henna, Neutral Henna, and Natural Henna variants to condition your hair.
4. It can help prevent dandruff
Henna helps remove excess grease and dirt from your scalp, including dandruff. Using Henna regularly on your hair not only cures dandruff problems but also prevents them from coming back.
5. Henna controls scalp itchiness
Henna has anti-fungal and antimicrobial properties that cool and soothe your scalp. This controls scalp itching.
6. It repairs splits ends
Dry and damaged hair is prone to split ends, which is why just cutting them off is not enough. Henna is a great way to break this vicious cycle. It deeply conditions and nourishes your hair, taking care of your dry hair problem, and consecutively, your split ends issue.
7. It balances pH and oil production
Henna helps calm overactive sebaceous glands, controlling oil production in the process. It also helps restore the pH of the scalp to its natural acid-alkaline level, thus strengthening the hair follicles.
8. It can make your hair thick and lustrous
The tannin present in henna actually binds with the hair to make it stronger and does not even penetrate the hair cortex, ensuring minimum damage. This ensures thicker, lustrous hair with each application.
9. It nourishes your scalp and hair.
Henna has naturally nourishing properties, which makes it the perfect ingredient to turn dry, damaged, and unhealthy hair into soft, shiny, manageable tresses.
