Henna Hair Treatment

So today I decided to take 2 to 3 hours of my time and give my hair a henna treatment using the Nupur Mehendi henna treatment for "shiny and silky" hair. It has 9 herbs in it some of which are neem (fights scalp infection), hibiscus(makes hair shiny), aloe vera(moisturizes hair) and brahmi(promotes hair growth). So the process takes a few hours. You have to mix it with water and/or oil and leave it for 3-4 hours then put it on your hair for another 2.3 hours. You make paste- I used olive oil and then u put it on your hair from root to tip and leave it there. It goes on and dries like mud. The smell reminds me of neem leaf powder. It can get messy when washing out so keep that in mind.

Results: My hair does feel different to my usual Mizani fulfyl conditioning treatment which usually leaves my hair very soft but with the henna my hair feels thicker. It promised shiny and silky hair but I don't think my hair looks that silkier. I added hair polisher while flat ironing my hair to protect my hair and give it some shine. So this week I am gonna look out for how much breakage I have and see if the henna does work as a good treatment against breakage. So what I got from the treatment is thicker hair, not much shine and hopefully treats the breakage.

I also tried out my ELF lilac nail polish. I like it for work and every day. It is a really pretty colour. Pics to follow. Have a beautiful week!
