6 Reasons Why Henna is Better Than Every Other Hair Dye
The People of Morocco, Yemen, Egypt & the Indian subcontinent have been enjoying the benefits of henna for centuries. Not only is henna a great plant to dye hair naturally, but it will also condition and strengthen your hair. With other hair dyes being so full of chemicals, they can not only cause skin irritation but will damage your hair - especially after many years of use.
What’s amazing about henna is that it’s full of beneficial nutrients that other dyes only claim to have. Trust us, adding oils and other “nutrients” to synthetic hair dye is only a marketing attempt to help cover up the fact that the dyes are stripping the natural ones from your hair.
To help you to discern if using henna dye may be a better option for you, here are six reasons why the all-natural option of henna is better than every other hair dye:
Henna is excellent in covering greys, actually, one of the main reasons why henna is used is because of its ability to cover greys naturally. Henna naturally colors greys/white hair to red/orange hair. When mixed with other herbs like indigo powder (Indigofera tinctoria) it can cover greys to your desired colors of light brown, medium brown, dark brown or even black, that too 100% naturally. One thing to note here is that since henna does not contain color developers (PPDs) It can not lighten your dark hair color. It can only go darker from lighter & not the other way around.
Henna’s natural ingredients will make your dry and damaged hair feel soft and luxurious after only one treatment. It also has been known to help control scalp itchiness and dandruff. Henna contains natural antifungal ingredients that soothe your scalp and prevent those pesky flakes from happening.
Working to return your hair to its natural acid-alkaline levels, henna helps control oil production and strengthens your hair follicles. After using henna, you will find your hair much more soft, shiny, and manageable.
With henna nourishing your scalp and strengthening your hair follicles, you will prevent your hair from breakage or falling out. Not only will it prevent hair loss but it can also reverse the effects if your already thinning hair.
Split ends are a common issue that most women have had to deal with. Often, we’re forced to go for haircuts more often only to get rid of those broken strands. After using henna dyes on your hair, you will no longer have to worry about the issue of split ends as henna deep conditions your hair and protects it from heat and other damage-causing factors.
Of course, one of the best benefits of using henna is that it’s all-natural, meaning it won’t cause damage to your hair or cause side effects such as cancer or skin irritations. Instead, it will leave your hair soft, silky and luxurious while providing you with the knowledge that it’s completely safe to use.
As you can see, there are many benefits to choosing henna over any other hair dye. Although you may not have hundreds of colors to choose from, your hair will look soft, shiny and gorgeous. Also because of henna’s all-natural ingredients, there are no worries about how often you can treat your hair. Henna is definitely worth a try especially for those out there who have sensitive skin or who are experiencing hair loss.
