Ayana’s Henna and Indigo Recipe

Two years ago I was having real problems with split ends. Following the suggestion of a friend I started using henna once or twice a month with great results – my hair got stronger, less breakage. It also can give tightly curled hair a slightly “looser” curl.



Here’s my recipe (after much trial and error):


3 parts indigo (to keep my black hair color)
1 part Herbal Henna
8 oz full fat yogurt
generous amount Bhaasvataa oil (or oil of your choice
generous amount honey
generous amount rosemary oil (to mask the ysmell)


It should look like oily yogurt.
Works like a charm. NO shedding and NO dryness.
