Dye hair with henna

Henna not only dyes hair, it nourishes it at the same time. But how is the plant extract applied correctly?

Caveat: There are henna in different shades of red, in black, brown and even colorless. A package with the Turkish grocer costs just over one euro - in the drugstore fivefold.

A package of henna is sufficient even with long hair.

Put the powder in a bowl and add

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 4 tablespoons cooking oil

This is how it's done

  1. With a little cold water stir it all into a tough paste and let it stand for 24 hours.
  2. Before applying, add enough water to make the mass approximately the consistency of applesauce.
  3. Then protected with gloves, distribute the henna evenly with a comb and or fingers in dry hair.
  4. Clean smeared ears or forehead immediately with baby oil or the like, otherwise the paint will be hard to remove.
  5. Now the color has to work for at least 2 hours. At wikipedia even talk of 4 hours.
  6. Then wash out and treat the hair as usual. Then they shine healthy.
