Henna has long been used as a natural hair conditioning treatment for its shine-boosting properties. When combined with stimulating herbs and ingredients, it can further encourage healthy follicles and lengthening of new strands over time.

What to mix in henna for hair growth?

Top additions to henna that research shows may aid hair growth by nourishing the scalp and strengthening strands include amla, brahmi, honey, yogurt, and essential oils.


Amla powder contains vitamin C that brightens color and the antioxidant ellagic acid shown to rejuvenate follicles for fuller growth. Mix 1-2 tsp amla into henna paste.


The herb gotu kola adds nutritive compounds that moisturize and soothe. Its saponins aid circulation for healthier new hair generation. Use 1/2-1 tbsp brahmi powder per henna pack.


Natural humectants in honey lock in hydration to prevent breakage during growth phases. Add 2-3 tbsp honey to a henna paste for shiny strands.


Protein and lactic acid in yogurt maintain a balanced scalp pH ideal for follicles. Stir 1/4 cup Greek yogurt into henna to improve application slip.

Essential Oils

A few drops each of rosemary, lavender, cedarwood and peppermint per pack amplifies henna's herbal benefits with their own. Massage into scalp post conditioning.

Applying the Hair-Boosting Hennna Pack

Mix powdered henna with any of the above ingredients to a paste-like texture. Apply liberally onto wet or dry hair. Wrap tightly and leave 2-4 hours. Rinse fully with water. Repeat 1-2x monthly.

Consistency and allowing the treatment to activate in hair for growth-nurturing compounds absorption ensures maximal success over 6-12 weeks.

Additional Scalp Health Tips

  • Gently massage during each application for circulation
  • Eat a protein-rich diet with fatty fish, eggs, legumes
  • Take a daily multivitamin and visit your doctor annually
  • Reduce stress through relaxing yoga, meditation, walking

The right mix of henna with vitamins, herbs and oils nourishes strands inside and out for thicker, darker manes over time.
