The Natural Beauty of Henna for Skin
Henna Powder and Herbal Henna
Odds are, you have probably heard of herbal henna as an organic hair and skin dye. However, you might not have heard that henna has incredible benefits for both your skin and hair; and is often used in beauty products as a core ingredient. Also known as ‘Mehandi’, this ingredient has been used as a hair conditioner for hundreds of years. It is a natural herbal powder used for colouring hair and helps prevent dandruff and scalp itching.
Henna is a plant that usually grows in sub-tropical and tropical countries; it is most commonly known in beauty circles by its scientific name, lawonie Inermis. The plant itself can grow to be over seven meters tall; and when in season, is covered in small petite pink flowers.
Making Pure Henna & Herbal Henna
To make henna, the plants leaves are picked and dried or crushed to make a fine powder. It is the fine powder that is used in most cosmetic products, as well as hair dye and hair care products. The powder is also used as a temporary tattoo, nail, hand and even a clothing dye.
This fine powder is then either sold in its raw form of concentrated henna also known as ‘pure henna’ or it is mixed with other powders and herbs to create a concoction of natural goodness that can be used on your skin and hair, which is also known as ‘herbal henna’.
