Fist Time Using Henna? Check out what Henna Heads Have to say about it!

One Curly Girl's Quest to Banish Single Strand

 Knots Leads  to 

Henna





On a quest to reduce my Single Strand Knots, I discovered henna. Did a little research and realised that Jamila henna is more popular with naturals but I came to know of another brand from a kurly girl called Godrej Nupur Henna.




 I liked it because it has some ayurvedic herbs. To apply the henna, my routine was quite simple.



 First 


I did a strand test,  I divided the hair into two. On the first one I applied Curly Nikkis glossy henna treatment which consists of


  1.  henna
  2. a conditioner+ or minus an oil,
  3. and green tea. 
On the other hair ball I applied a mixture of henna & coconut milk only.  I left these overnight.



After analyzing the results, I find that I  preferred the coconut milk Solution. The Next morning I cleansed my hair with raw black soap then applied my henna-coconut milk treatment. I left it on for 5.5h then rinsed it off. It rinsed off very easily. I followed the henna treatment with a Deep Conditioner. After  my first application,my hair was softer & my knots had reduced noticeably. There was no colour change but my hair was definitely stronger.


 I have to say that one must research on the pros & cons before even considering using 


henna. My mum has used it for many years & her hair is amazing so she encouraged me to

use it, I hope that helps you.
