EASY TO USE.

Shikakai is rich in saponins which are natural foaming agents are found in several other plant species used as shampoos or soaps. Saponins containing plants have a long history of use as mild cleaning agents.

Shikakai powder has been used for centuries as a natural hair cleanser. It promotes hair growth and root strength, and gently detangles. It is mild and has a natural low pH, which conditions hair to be soft and lustrous. It does not strip the hair of its natural oils, and its use has also been known to prevent dandruff.

Mix the powder with water to create a paste and work it through the hair. The paste will lather moderately, and should be left on the hair for about 5 minutes. Henna or amla powders can be added to the paste to give a boost of color to the hair.

Strengthens hair from the root to tip Supports new hair growth, great dandruff control, and naturally de-tangles hair without conditioners .

How to use henna powder alone ?

Using natural henna to color and condition the hair requires patience and a slight learning curve. There are things that henna loves, needs and wants.

· Henna loves an acidic environment for optimal dye release.

· Henna loves a warm and humid environment for optimal dye release.

· Henna loves to take her time to release her dye and must be given the required time to do so.

· Henna loves a warm and humid environment to color the hair optimally.

· Henna loves to take her time when coloring the hair and must be given the required time to do so.

· Henna loves a long lingering rinse in order to be removed from the hair and scalp thoroughly.

· Henna loves skin and textiles and will happily stain your skin and clothing unless you wear gloves, old or protective clothing and cover your rugs and shower curtains.

Preparing your hair for henna application:

Your hair needs no special preparation for henna application. There are some recommendations that may be helpful. Do not prewash your hair. The natural oils that are in your hair will be sealed in rather than stripped from your hair when you apply your henna.

Mixing your Henna Powder:

The additions that any other person adds to their recipe for henna paste that works for them is a reflection of what their hair needs and wants and what makes it thrive. Know what is best for your hair and use those things as additives only after you know and understand what henna will do on its own.

Basic recipe for henna paste for hair is:

Henna powder 2- 4 oz, enough water to make a paste.

Lemon juice – 1 lemon

How much henna you will require depends on the length and thickness of your hair. Rule of thumb is 100 grams per every 1-foot of hair.

Put the required amount of henna powder in a bowl. Add warm water.Too hot water will cook your henna and impair the positive results you desire. When conditioning is important but coloring is not, reduce the amount of lemon juice. The lemon juice helps the dye to release and therefore helps the paste to color the hair more effectively. Allow your paste to "sit" for 8 hours. (But know that your paste can sit 12, 24 or 48 hours and be just fine as it releases its dye.) Uncover and stir your paste well to mix back in the dye that has been released.

If you want a darker color - add walnut powder at this time. You can add as little as 15% of your total henna mix or upt to 90% of the total henna used.

Apply to your hair:

Take your time and make sure that you have covered all of your hair with the paste from roots to ends. When you are sure that you have all of the hair covered thoroughly, cover your hair with a plastic cap. Then cover with a towel or scarf. Leave the paste on your hair for the length of time required to get both the coloring and conditioning desired. To avoid henna from staining your skin, apply a protective oil or grease like petroleum jelly around your forehead, ears and neckline.

Washing off:

This is best done while standing in your shower and allowing warm water to rinse the henna paste from your hair.

Finally

While your hair is still wet, apply a moisturizer. While your hair is still moist from rinsing (but not dripping) work your moisturizing oils or other conditioner through your hair with your fingers. You will find your hair to be softer, easier to manage and detangled. Then style as usual
Why color?
Colour therapy is rooted in Ayurveda, an ancient form of medicine practiced in India for thousands of years. Ayurveda is based on the idea that every individual contains the five basic elements of the universe: earth, water, air, fire, and ether (space). These elements are present in specific proportions unique to an individual's personality and constitution. When these elements are thrown out of balance through unhealthy living habits or outside forces, illness results. Ayurvedic medicine uses the energies inherent in the colours of the spectrum to restore this balance.
This is best done while standing in your shower and allowing warm water to rinse the henna paste from your hair.
