What is henna gloss?A GLOSSY GLOSSY effect like in advertisements without using commercial cracra products? It's possible! Henna Gloss is a real restorative treatment, fortifying, making the hair radiant with shine. Yes, we can find happiness O Naturel!
How to make your own henna gloss?It is a mixture of neutral or natural Henna, hot water and hair care (mask or conditioner). By opting for neutral henna you will obtain a non-coloring deep care. To have the alliance of care and revive copper or brown effects, opt for natural henna.
Utensils for preparing henna gloss
- A bowl
- 1 wooden spoon
Ingredients to prepare henna gloss
- 5 tablespoons of neutral henna (depending on the length and thickness of your hair)
- 3 tbsp hair conditioner or hair mask (depending on the length and thickness of your hair)
- Hot water
Step by step steps to prepare your henna glossIn a bowl, pour the Henna powder and add hot water little by little to obtain a paste consistency - neither too liquid nor too thick to facilitate application. Add your usual conditioner or hair mask and mix. In my case, I use a homemade oatmeal conditioner for intense hydration and a stunning result (recipe here ). And yes, we can work miracles with ingredients that we all have in our cupboards!
Why and how to use henna gloss?The treatment is applied to clean, damp hair. If you do it right after washing it, you just have to untangle your hair and divide it into sections. Otherwise, pre-moisten them with lukewarm water to open the scales. A clean hair may have been washed 1 or 2 days before. Apply the preparation to the scalp, massaging well, stretch to cover the lengths. Do the wick to wick for an easier application. Cover your hair with a care cap to keep the heat in and avoid plastic cellophane waste. Leave for 30min to 2h. Rinse with lukewarm water and finish with cold water for even more shine. There is no need to shampoo after this treatment. If you find the smell of Henna too strong in your hair, don't worry it will fade until it disappears.
Like all treatments, the results are not always immediate. Space it out because Henna can slightly dry out the lengths. I recommend it once a month.
Neutral Henna does not color but, in very rare cases, on very light hair and on white hair, it can slightly color them. In these cases, do not exceed more than 30min break.
I must admit that it was a bit of a war in my bathroom when I first used shampoos or powder treatments. Once the helping hand is nabbed, it goes better ;)
The benefits of my personalized recipe
Neutral Henna is rich in active molecules and has a strong sheathing power. This powder has fortifying properties similar to those of natural Henna but does not color. It delights fine hair by giving it volume and cleanses oily or dandruff scalps.
After several uses, you will see your hair healthier, softer, supple and shiny. It will allow you to space out your shampoos.
Neutral Henna can be used to prevent lice. Its sheathing action prevents the anchoring of nits. A little mask on your little ones' heads before the start of the school year won't hurt them ;).
The use of my oatmeal cream with Henna provides intense hydration and avoids drying out the lengths.
Precautions for preparing a homemade recipe
Disinfect utensils used for preparation. Always test products on a small area of the body.
