How Often Do You Use Henna On Your Hair?

Henna is a natural dye commonly used by people to dye their hair or color their hair. Henna adds a vibrant and natural look to your hair. And because it is a dye, it would last only four weeks or less. So it may be possible that you have to color your hair twice in 4 weeks. Being a dye, henna may be very hard on your hair and may also not suit everyone. So one must keep this in mind before applying henna.

How often do you use henna on your hair? 

Well, as already mentioned that henna is very hard on your hair. You should apply it once or twice every 4-6 weeks. After applying henna initially makes your hair orange but will get darker within 24-48 hours. 

Henna is of two types:

  • Natural Henna, which is made from henna plants.
  • Black Henna, which has some chemicals in it and is a dye.

Natural henna being everyone’s choice, is a better alternative than coloring your hair with chemicals. Unfortunately, it is being used by everyone the most. 

People believe that henna does not cause damage to hair like the chemical color.

Henna’s benefits on hair –

  1. It restores the dry and damaged hair.
  2. It prevents the greying of hair.
  3. It works like magic on split ends.
  4. It makes your hair shinier than before.
  5. It nourishes your hair.

But despite having so many benefits, people only get confused for one thing, and that is, how often do you use henna on your hair? 

It is the most common thing asked by all because eventually, people find it suitable to dye our hair on our own rather than paying someone else to color it for ourselves.

So people can use henna once or twice in 4-6 weeks.

However, the method of applying henna differs from person to person.

Many feel that we should apply henna overnight with Multani mitti and some lukewarm water and wash it off the other day with a sulfate-free shampoo.

While many say that you should apply henna after shampoo, keep it for 2-3 hours and then wash it with the tap water and again wash it with shampoo within 2-3 days after applying henna. 

So it’s totally up to the person how comfortable she is in applying henna.

But despite all this, the most important thing is the quality that you are applying to your hair. The quality can be a game-changer for your hair. 

A good product can shine your hair like anything but a bad product can cause a lot of damage to your hair.

So, you have to be very careful while choosing the right henna for you. Of course, we want to keep our hair healthy for as long as possible hence it is equally important to use the right product for your hair.

It is not necessary that what suits you will suit other people also. And the best way to find it is by using it yourself.

Another thing is to ask someone who is a regular user of henna products because nothing works more than an experience.

Also, you can go to your hairdresser and ask her for advice.

Now at the end, it’s your hair. Only you can keep your hair healthy and strong; nobody can do it for you. 

So you only have to decide how often to use henna on hair? Which brand or product to use? How to use it? Everything you have to decide on your own. Because your hair is your responsibility, not anyone else’s.
