My hair is very dry and frizzy. In winter, I experience a lot of scalp issues like itchiness and dandruff. So, I have to keep my scalp clean and product build-up free. Medicated scalp cleansers are my ultimate choices but they tend to dry out my already dry hair. So, I keep experimenting with home remedies. Over the past few years, henna enriched hair packs worked well for my dandruff. I generally mix curd and some other kitchen ingredients with my henna powder and make a smooth paste out of it. Today I will be sharing my experience on the henna powder I am using currently. It is Habibs Aesthetics Henna Rare Mix of Himalayan Herbs. This is basically a herb mix which contains Henna, Bhringaraj, Amta, and Brahmi. Here is my view on this product.

My Experience with Habibs Aesthetics Henna Rare Mix of Himalayan Herbs
Packaging- This henna mix comes in a white colored plastic tub. The tub has a green color screw open lid. The tub houses 200gm of product, so it is quite big in size; not that travel-friendly. But, I do not travel anywhere with my henna tub so the bulkiness of packaging does not matter much to me. Henna can be quite messy and that is why there is a sealing foil to secure the wide opening of the tub. The packaging is good and sturdy.
Colour & Texture- This henna powder is a finely milled powder that looks light brown when dry. Its color changes to dark brown when the powder is soaked in water. It leaves behind an orangish brown tint. This tint stains grey hair but cannot fully cover them with artificial hair colors or dyes. This henna powder is very easy to work with. It makes very smooth paste free from lumps.
Fragrance- This henna has light herbal kind of fragrance to it. The fragrance is not from its core ingredients; it has been added to make the henna smell good. I do not personally like the artificial fragrance part since I do not want to put some extra chemical in my already dry hair. The smell, however, lasts only a few seconds as you soak the powder in water.
Experience- I generally use this henna for conditioning my dry hair and treat my annoying dandruff issues. I have naturally dark brown hair. This henna does not bring any significant change in my hair’s original colour. It just gives me slight reddish tint that can only be seen in sunlight. This henna dries my hair unless I use oil or curd as its base. It does remove dandruff and itchiness of scalp for few weeks. I need to keep my scalp or hair oiled regularly to strike out the dryness left by the henna. It gives volume and bounce to my thin hair. I have not experienced any change in my hair fall rate for this henna. I have used some other famous henna before using this but this one has won my heart as it keeps my scalp issues at bay for the longest period.
