How to Keep Grey Hair Away with Mustard Seed Oil and Henna

Mustard seed oil and henna can be mixed to prepare a potent potion for keeping grey hair at bay and promoting healthy hair.

In my earlier articles about the benefits of mustard oil for Hair and How to DIY Mustard Seed 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 can help to combat grey hair naturally over time.

Recipe for Covering Grey Hair with Mustard Seed Oil & Henna

Ingredients

The Henna Guys Henna Powder

Directions

  • Pour the mustard oil into a pan and bring to a boil. I used a wok because there was nothing else available.
  • Once boiling, add the henna powder to it and stir gently making sure there are no lumps. Once the mixture is smooth, leave to boil for about 20 – 30 minutes until the mixture starts to bubble.
  • Turn off the stove and let the mixture cool for a bit, then strain through a cheesecloth or colander. 
  • Pour into a clean jar and store in a cool place.

Below is a step-by-step visual of how I created the mix. It’s simple, and you don’t need to worry about stains.

I washed everything afterward 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 and Mustard Oil for Grey Hair

Scalp Massage

A good scalp massage 2 – 3 times a week. Leave in overnight and shampoo and deep condition the next morning. 

Hot Oil Treatment

Use it for a hot oil treatment before shampooing and deep conditioning or as 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. It helped stretch sessions between henna treatments.
