As far as we commonly know about herbal henna powder, it is used as a natural hair dye. In India, women have been applying it on their hands and body to draw semi-permanent tattoos for marriages and other occasions. The henna plant has provided us with many benefits since the last 9000 years. But during early days, hair colour was not in fashion, so what purpose did henna serve us back then? Apart from its hair dyeing properties, there are many other benefits that we can get from bio-organic henna. Let us look at these seldom talked about ‘other benefits of Henna’ sans its colouring effects.
- Henna has the power to heal many skin problems. Traditionally, it was used in Ayurveda as a healing product, which worked as an antiseptic for fungal infections and allergies. Even today, you can see that it is added to many skincare products as the top ingredient.
- Henna has effective cooling elements, which can soothe burns. Also, it can be used as a healer of headaches and sunstrokes. People living in dessert areas apply herbal henna powder paste on their bodies to cool down their body temperature.
- Apart from treating the skin it can also relieve you from painful diseases such as jaundice, ulcer, enlarged spleen, etc., although there are no evidences of comprehensive healing.
- Bio-organic henna also improves the quality and texture of your hair. It helps in hair growth and removes dandruff, while softening up and strengthening your hair. It also solves hair loss problems.
But using Henna for all the above purposes and also colouring up your hair in the process each time can become a huge pain. To avoid this predicament, we can use another product which is identical to Henna, only it doesn’t colour up your hair. So much so, that it has become popular worldwide as Colourless Henna, scientific name being Cassia auriculata. The plant offers all the qualities of bio-organic henna apart from hair dyeing. It releases no colour, but if you have a full set of all whites as your crowning glory, it can make your white hair look a very light shaded golden.
It is used in almost all ayurvedic products for treatment purposes:
- It can cure many skin and health related issues. It can also cure diabetes and liver infections up to a certain level.
- It also increases blood circulation in the body, treats constipation and helps in preventing fatigue.
- It works as a conditioning agent to lessen hair fall and gives good shine and growth to hair. When applied on the scalp it can remove dandruff and other fungal infestations.
