In my earlier post about benefits of mustard oil, I mentioned that mustard oil helps to combat grey hair when used with henna. After some research and experimentation, I worked out a recipe using henna and mustard oil, which will help to combat grey hair naturally.
You will need mustard oil (I used ½ cup) and henna powder (I used about 1/3 cup). I bought generic henna powder from the store but you can also purchase henna from Henna for Hair.
Instructions for Covering Grey Hair with Mustard Seed Oil & Henna
- Pour the mustard oil into a pan and bring to the boil. I used a wok because there was nothing else available.
- Once boiling, add the henna powder to it and stir in gently making sure there are no lumps. Once the mixture is smooth, leave to boil for about 30 – 40 minutes until the mixture starts to bubble.
- After 40 minutes, turn off the stove and let the mixture cool for a bit, then strain the mixture through a handkerchief or any cloth.
- Store in a cool place.
Below is a step-by-step visual on how I created the mix. It’s very simple and don’t worry about stains. I washed everything afterwards and it all came out. I filled a little jar with the mixture. I imagine it should last about 8 weeks.
How to Use Henna & Mustard Oil for Grey Hair
A good scalp massage 2 – 3 times a week, as a hot oil treatment or part of an oil rinsing process. I had mentioned earlier I will use the mustard oil with my next henna treatment but I think I like this method better.
