Top 10 Reasons to Include Henna in your Hair Care Routine

The growing stress, pollution, lifestyle and eating disorders have escalated hair and scalp problems to such a severity that taking utmost care of our hair has become a necessity. Hair fall, dandruff, breakage and scalp infections are just a few to name hair and scalp problems that require urgent treatment to avoid hair loss. With the growing awareness about hair care, the cosmetic industry making such products has also grown leaps and bounds.

But are all the products made in the name of hair care, really safe and effective?The answer is no! While you might find some organic and herbal products that will actually benefit your hair, most others are just a bunch of chemical laden mixtures that provide false claims to treat and cure our problems.

Therefore, switching to toxin and chemical free herbal products is the best and the safest choice. And when we talk of herbal ingredients for hair care, how can we forget about Henna- the most basic and ancient ingredient of every hair remedy.

Henna is a herb mainly associated with hair dyes and has been traditionally used for application as mehndi on hands during ceremonial functions due to its reddish and brownish colour imprint after drying and washing away the remnants from head and skin. It is a skin friendly herb which explains its wide usage in many countries across the globe.

The Henna dye is obtained from a flowering plant with the scientific name lawsonia inermis. It is used in a wide variety of ways, including powder form, aqueous extracts, tinctures, and salves, composed of bark, seeds, or leaves.

The amazing benefits of including Henna in your hair care regimen are:

1. Herbal Hair Color

Heena is a plant-based natural dye for hair which gives a red shade to white hair but can be combined with other herbs or ingredients to achieve a dark red or a natural black/brown color. It is the most herbal method of dying grey hair without any side effects. If you are reluctant to use chemicals on your scalp but want to cover greys, henna is a natural alternative.

2. Improves hair growth

Henna promotes natural and healthy hair growth by cleaning the scalp and letting the hair follicles grow in a natural way. Unlike other chemicals it does not clog the pores or damage the follicles. The natural properties of henna promote hair growth when used in any way such as a hair pack, essential hair oil or shampoo.

3. Hair fall and hair loss reduction

Henna hair pack made along with curd or combination of henna powder with mustard oil is an excellent remedy for hair fall. It helps seal the hair cuticles, preventing breakage and increasing the shine and appearance of the hair. Henna also reduces hair loss and baldness by strengthening and nourishing the roots.

4. Deeply conditions dry and damaged hair 

Henna is a deep and natural conditioner that leaves your hair feeling absolutely gorgeous. Using henna hair pack with coconut or olive oil, leaves the hair extremely soft, nourished and bouncy.

5. Prevents dandruff

Applying henna powder with mustard oil and methi seeds powder regularly on the scalp not only cures dandruff but prevents it from coming back. Henna is an active ingredient in many anti-dandruff shampoo formulations. Its antimicrobial antifungal properties help to fight the flakiness, itchiness and dryness by moisturising the scalp and soothing it.

6. Repairs splits ends

Dry and damaged hair leads to split ends, which can be an unfavourable situation. It not only looks unattractive, but also makes the hair weak by splitting it into two parts, making it prone to breakage. Henna saves you from this embarrassment and gives you deeply conditioned and nourished hair.

7. Maintains the scalp balance 

Henna cleanses the scalp and removes dirt and extra oil without disturbing the natural pH balance of the scalp. It maintains its acid-alkaline balance without messing it up, unlike chemical-based products. It leaves the scalp feeling moisturized and healthy.

8. Improves hair thickness and quality

Regular use of henna not only prevents hair fall, but also improves the hair texture and growth. It makes the strands healthy, thick and lustrous, adding softness and volume to them for a fuller look. It is an effective method for people who have thin hair.

9. Makes hair shiny and manageable

Henna’s nourishing properties turn dry, damaged and unhealthy hair into soft, shiny and manageable locks. It conditions the hair from root to tips adding  and locking the required moisture to make them manageable and detangled. 

10. Removes excess oil from scalp

Henna and multani mitti hair pack removes excessive sebum or oil secretions from the scalp and reduces hair fall caused by your oily scalp. However henna also conditions the scalp and doesn't completely strip it off its natural oils. With henna you can be assured of a smell free and clean scalp.
