DIY Henna Bars

Welcome to a new post folks. I hope everyone is staying safe during these chaotic times. I hope every day that world learns love.

I’ve been doing a lot diy projects to stay busy. One of those projects have been hair related. You all know how much I live by henna. And lately I’ve been wondering how well henna and my favorite butter, (Kokum butter) would work to together.

Without surprise, both work like magic. I’m talking shine, moisturizing, and a easy rinsing process.

YOU’LL NEED: Plastic or wooden bowl and utensils.

  • 4 tablespoons of castor oil
  • 2 teaspoon of both honey and olive oil
  • 1/4 of Kokum butter
  • Essential oils (optional)
  • 120grams of Nupur Henna (optional)

120 grams of Henna will make 10 ice cubes size bars.

1. You’ll need to boil some water. Once the water is boiled. Place it aside. In a separate glass bowl, place the kokum butter in. And place that bowl in the hot water that was put aside. Let that sit until the butter is a liquid.

2. Start mixing your oils in a separate bowl.

3. Add in the henna and stir.

4. Add the melted kokum butter.

5. Stir until the henna is super smooth.

6. Pour the henna gloss into the ice tray.

120 grams is a 1/2. That amout made 10 bars.

7. Let the henna sit in the freezer for 1 hour.

8. Enjoy!

I thought I would have enough left over. But my hair need all 10 bars. But I’m not complaining. It was totally worth it. This henna gloss method left my hair super shine, super soft, super bouncy.

I am definitely using this method again.

Thanks for visiting!

Love.

Clarifying

In the past, a lot of times I would henna my hair first. Then cleanse with bentonite clay, and clarify using ACV and aloe vera juice.

Currently, due to the warm humid weather I’ve been rocking the mini twist. And I’ve been setting my twist with gel and hairspray. Therefore, when it comes to my wash days I want clarify throughly.

Qhemet Biologics Egyptian

Wheatgrass Cleansing Tea is my go to. This cleanser produces a rich lather and contains wheatgrass, barley and alfalfa to condition hair and scalp and gently remove debris and build-up.

Ingredients: Contains ancient grains like Egyptian Wheatgrass, Barley and Alfalfa to strengthen follicles, prevent shedding, smooth cuticles and support growth. Specially formulated to improve the health and condition of the scalp. Scented with pure Lavender E.O. Effectively removes build-up without disrupting the scalps natural lipid barrier. Link below:

After clarifying I apply my henna gloss/deep conditioner.

Henna Gloss/ Deep Conditioner

  • ACV and Aloe Vera juice
  • Castor and Olive oil
  • Essential oil: lemongrass and jasmine oil.
  • Deep Conditioner: Oyin Handmade what the hemp deep conditioner for extra moisture.

I leave the henna on for 3 hours. Rinse, and the co-wash with Oyin Handmade ginger mint.

Woooh. Once that’s completely. I apply my leave in and start the detangling process using,(alikay naturals lemongrass leave-in). This entire process can take up a entire afternoon. But it worth it. I find that when applying a deep conditioner with my henna helps detangling my hair a walk in the park.

Let me know what you think. Share with me what is your wash routine.
