Suffering from grey hair problem? Then go for henna application, which is a healthy and natural way to cover your entire grey hair.

Henna, also commonly known as mehndi is prepared from herbal leaves and is the best option to get rid of grey hair. Even regularly applying henna strengthens the hair roots and even enhances the thickness of your hair strands. Its rich antibacterial and anti-fungal properties make it excellent for scalp health.

Step 1 – Boiling Black Tea Leaves
The first step, to begin with, is to boil black tea leaves in water. Take one saucer and pour some water into it. Switch on the flame and add black tea leaves to the water. Boil the water till small bubbles appear. Now simmer the flame till the water reduces to half. Make sure you take the water in right proportion to the henna powder to get an appropriate mix.

Step 2 – Prepare a Henna Mixture
The next step is to prepare a mixture or mask from henna. For this, you need to take some henna powder and then soak it in warm water for 8 hours. You can do this at night before sleeping and the next morning the henna will be ready to use.

In the morning when you are ready with the henna mask you may then add the black tea leaves mixture and some lemon juice into it. Mix them well till you get the perfect mix. If required, then you can also add some amla powder to the mixture.

Step 3 – Time to Apply the Mask

This is an important step where you need to apply the mask to your grey hair. During this step, you need to ensure that your entire grey hairs are covered properly. If you need to apply henna to all your hair, then first you may create two ponytails parting the hair from the middle section.

Now cover your hands with fingers and apply the mask to your hair. As you reach the back of your head you may apply the henna mask on one ponytail and then wrap it around the head. After this, apply the henna on other ponytail and then wrap it on the other ponytail.

Apply henna on all your hair and ensure that your entire grey hairs are covered.

Step 4 – Cover Hair with a Shower Cap

Henna works well and can deliver effective results only when it is applied properly and gets dried. For this, you need to wait for at least 30 minutes. The maximum you may apply the henna for 2 hours.

To avoid experiencing any trouble, you may cover your hair with a shower cap. Now you may relax for a while. Even you can give yourself a good massage or manicure or pedicure while the henna gets dried.

Step 5 – Wash Off Well
As the last step, you need to wash your henna off. Make sure you gently rinse the henna while using a gentle shampoo.

Wash off henna with cold water as this will ensure that the shine and health of your hair last longer. Even cold water ensures that the henna color stays locked for a longer time period. You can even apply some amount of conditioner on your hair.

Repeat the washing process till the henna gets off completely. Your gorgeous hair is all good to go.
