“I think after at least two years of henna treatments I have reached the holy grail of henna gloss mixtures for my hair and also found a rinsing process which works for me!”
1 x 100g box of henna powder
2 x large tablespoons of amla powder
1 x tablespoon of EVOO
2 x tablespoons of EVCO (melted into the EVOO)
1 x mug of warm strong black tea (made with 2 x bags and steeped for 30mins+)
2 x teaspoons of honey (melted in the warm tea)
Coconut milk solids from a 400ml can (approx. 3 x heaped tablespoons)
1 x tablespoon of coconut milk water (from the same 400ml can)
1 x tabledpoon of AVJ
I'm really loving this combination! A long time ago I used to coat my hair in oil before applying the henna gloss. Nowadays there is no need as I add all the oil I need to counteract the drying effect of henna and amla, directly into the mixture.
Not only is it simple to make but it’s also 100% natural which has gotta be a good thing!!! Also, as I don’t particularly care for the smell of henna this mixture, without the addition of a store brought conditioner, doesn’t bother me half as much. I also think the addition of coconut milk solids really soften and almost straighten my new growth so it’s a win win!
These are the steps I followed:
