Place the powered henna into a ceramic, plastic, glass or stainless steel bowl.

Use warm liquid to mix the henna paste, either warm water or brewed tea.

Add a dash of lemon juice to oxidise the dye.

Blend well with a spoon until you have a thick paste the consistency of yoghurt.

This will be a messy mixture, and it will stain any surface it gets on. It may be a good idea to wear gloves, and you should immediately wipe the mixture off of anything you accidentally smear it on.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave in a warm place until the dye releases from the henna (at least 2 hours, or overnight for best results).

One thought on “How to mix henna for hair

  1. Am a natural blue eyed redhead (rare!) who’s hair traitorously went brown when I had kids – one, and then twins. So I henna. The Hair is now shoulder blade length, and naturally curly and behaves like a sheepskin rug crossed with a tired toddler. Hennaing hair this long is a challenge – I have a cape (from Amazon) which is fab for this. Protects my clothes and even comes with a window for my phone at the front. I can’t manage without this cape now. I find unless I leave the mix overnight it doesn’t release properly, especially in winter.
