With the increasingly toxic load in modern day hair colours; I decided it was time to turn to a natural method about 4 years ago. I don’t really like the natural grey hair highlights my hair was dealing me so I researched various methods that are natural and ended up with henna.
If the colour is prepared in the correct way then it will even cover greys. The key to this is adding some lemon juice or apple cider vinegar. Some great videos that I have found are by Morrocco method on how to prepare the colour. Here is one how to prepare brown henna hair colour.
When I hit rock bottom last year I had a lot of hair loss and was worried that the use of henna would have a negative impact on my hair. I used to have handfuls of hair falling out when I combed my hair and when I showered. It was a very scary time period. However I believe in conjunction with use of the Morrocco Method shampoos, henna continues to strengthen my hair. My hair looks more vibrant than it has in a long time. I use henna once a month and trim my hair at the same time.
Some of the benefits of henna include
- Helps repair the damaged hair strands and restores the acid-alkaline balance of the scalp.
- Helps to protect hair strands by building a protective layer and locking the nutrients and moisture.
- Henna can be used to treat dandruff and scalp infections effectively.
- Henna is anti-inflammatory in nature.
