What is Henna?

Henna is a plant-based dye derived from the Lawsonia inermis plant and has been used for centuries to adorn hair, skin, and nails. Unlike chemical hair dyes, henna offers a natural alternative that not only colors but also nourishes and strengthens your hair.


This guide will walk you through the process, offering tips and tricks to ensure a successful first-time experience.

Pre-Dye Preparation:

  • Choose the Right Shade: Reshma Beauty offers a variety of henna shades. Pick one that best suits your desired look.
  • Mixing: Mix the henna to achieve a toothpaste-like consistency. For red henna, add red tea or lemon juice to the mixture instead of water, and for brown henna, add coffee. You can also add a teaspoon of Reshma Henna Infused Hair and Skin Oil or Deep Conditioning Hair Mask, for added moisture.
  • Test for Allergies: Conduct a patch test 24 hours before applying henna to your hair.

Application Tips:

  • Wear Gloves: Henna will stain your skin, so it’s essential to wear gloves during Application.
  • Section Your Hair: Apply henna to small, manageable sections of your hair, starting from the roots and working your way down.
  • Use the Right Tools: Apply henna with an applicator brush for an even distribution. Ensure you cover every strand with a uniform color.
  • Wait It Out: For classic henna, leave it in your hair for 3 to 4 hours. For 30 minute henna, leave it on for 30 minutes, but if you have stubborn grey hairs, leave it on for 45 minutes to an hour.
  • Rinse Out: Rinse with lukewarm water until the water runs clear. Follow up with Reshma Beauty Henna Infused Shampoo and Conditioner  which are sulfate-free, paraben-free, and color-safe.

Post-Dye Care:

  • Moisturize: After coloring with henna, it’s crucial to keep your hair moisturized. This is where Reshma Beauty’s henna-infused hair serum comes into play. This lightweight, non-greasy serum is designed to nourish your hair, enhance the vibrancy of the henna color, and add a beautiful shine.
  • Avoid Frequent Washing: To prolong your color, reduce the frequency of your hair washes.
  • Touch-Ups: Reshma Beauty Henna can be safely used for regular maintenance.
