Henna Hair Regimen
It’s been sometime since I’ve hennaed my hair and i am overdue for a treatment. Here i am sharing my full henna hair regimen on how I henna my hair from start to finish. But first lets briefly discuss the benefits of henna and how it can help your hair grow healthy and strong.
What is Henna?
Henna mainly known for coloring the hair red. But it also conditions the hair and has anti-fungal properties. It aids in the elimination of dandruff, ringworm, lice and many other scalp related issues.

My Henna Regimen
I begin by wetting my hair then the cleansing process with a conditioning clarifying shampoo such a Silika Shea Shampoo to remove product buildup from my hair and scalp. Next, I apply the henna to my hair covering my scalp and the ends of my hair. When done, I cover my hair with a plastic cap then let the henna sit from 2 to 6 hours. Let the henna sit on your hair for 6 hours for the best results if coloring grey hairs.
Finally, I rinse the henna from my hair followed by cleansing any residues with my Cha’Cha Shampoo. I deep condition my hair, apply my leave in conditioner, seal with my hair butter, then style.
