Hair Care: Mehndi will increase the shine of hair, just do not make these mistakes!



When it comes to beauty, it is important to take care of both skin and hair. Many people often face hair and skin-related problems due to various reasons. In such a situation, they use various beauty products available in the market or resort to home remedies. One of the most common home remedies for hair is applying henna, especially to enhance the shine of hair and cover grey hair.

However, some people mix different ingredients while applying mehendi. These things mixed with henna or applying henna in the wrong way can cause damage to your hair. Here are some mistakes you should avoid while applying henna to your hair:

Avoid adding lemon or curd.

Some people add lemon juice to the henna mixture, but this is not recommended as lemon juice is acidic, which can make your hair dry. Similarly, mixing curd with mehendi may also not give the desired results.

Soak the henna for sufficient time

For best results, soak the henna for at least 8 to 12 hours before applying it to your hair. If you soak it for less time, you may not get the colour you want. You can soak henna overnight and use it the next day.

Do not use plastic containers.

People often use plastic containers while preparing henna paste. It is better to use stainless steel or iron containers as plastic may release more dye. Use a spatula to mix it.

Use infused water instead of normal water.

Most people use normal water to prepare a henna paste, but it does not give the desired colour. Instead, you can use coffee or tea water to prepare the mehendi mixture. Make sure to cool the water before using.
