Got 8+ hours to do a hair treatment? I know some of you ladies do, but I’m sure many of you certainly don’t have time for that! If you love the thickening and conditioning effect of henna, you’re going to love this hack that provides all the good stuff of henna at a fraction of the time most henna treatments take.
Make sure to get rid of any clumps. The consistency should be similar to that of a runny yogurt. Once you’re done, you don’t have to let the henna cure. You can use it right away. Not allowing the henna to cure will minimize your chances of getting too much color when you let the henna sit on your hair.
Once you’re done applying the henna to sectioned parts, place a plastic cap over your head and for extra heat, try tying a towel on top.
Allow the henna to sit on your head for 1 hour then rinse it out and follow up with a conditioner. I used the conditioner for 15 minutes and rinsed.
This makes enough for 2 treatments for up to mid back length natural hair. Keep the rest in the fridge until next time.
My hair felt absolutely fabulous after this treatment. It felt weighted, yet smooth and very shiny. The texture was actually similar to the results I received right after my keratin treatment! Needless to say, I will be doing this again because the results are fantastic, the process isn’t too long and it’s cost effective.
