Henna is a dye prepared from the Henna tree. Henna has been used since ancient times and even today to dye and nourish the hair. The powder is also used in body art and to dye fingernails, a common practice in many Asian countries. To make a hair pack, mix some water, yogurt or egg with a little Henna powder and apply the thick paste to your hair. Leave in for a few hours and wash with water. Finish with a little oil for soft and glossy lustrous hair. Henna powder can also be used to dye fabrics like silk, wool and leather.

Even though Henna is used as a dye, it’s only the dried leaves which can be used to stain. Often various other ingredients like milk, black tea, lemon juice, sugar and Niligiri oils are added to Henna paste to accentuate the colour intensity.
