* It also fights against dry scalp and dandruff.

* It adds shine and turns into the glossy texture.

* It also prevents hair fall.

* It curbs exposure to chemical and non-natural ingredients present in our shampoos and conditioners.

Henna oil, which comes from henna leaves, is believed to strengthen the hair and make it lustrous and shiny. Here’s what it can do, and how you can prepare it at home.


You will need some coconut oil and henna leaves to prepare the oil.

* First, wash the leaves thoroughly and then grind them. Add some water to make a paste.

* Make small balls and keep them aside to dry.

* Next, put them in a pan and add some coconut oil. Allow them to boil.

* When the oil starts to change colour, turn off the gas and transfer the contents onto a separate container.

* Let it cool. Then sieve it. The henna oil is ready now.
