    i make my own henna/amla oil and i think it works better than oil alone. But using it as oil does not feel the same as henna mixed with water. Both are good in different ways.

    How can I control my life when I can't control my hair?

    Does anyone know if it deposits any colour?

    I use a shampoo and conditioner from the Indian grocery store that has henna in it. My hair seems MUCH softer after I use it. I think it just has the henna's conditioning properties, but it could be many of the other natural ingrediants in it. *shrugs*

    I'd like to add some herbal henna to coconut oil and use it mostly for scalp massages. Is it better just to let it sit 2 weeks as little_cherry suggested, or would it be okay to put it on the stove at a low heat for some period of time? Will that mess anything up..?

    If not, how long should I heat it that way?

    I am too impatient.

    Does anybody still makes their own henna oil?, I have some cassia and herbs and I was thinking making some cassia infused oil.

    I do I used mustard and coconut oil I put them in a jar over boiling water, like a double boiler, and added one table spoon of henna and another of Amla powders . After a few days it turned very dark green and I use it for deep oilings on my hair. I had to strain it after about a month. I keep it in a dark cool area. It does help with shedding as henna and mustard oil is a treatment for balding . Hope that is helpful

    Thank you it was very helpful. Do you notice any color change in your hair by the oil?.
    I have some amla,rose petals powder, brahmi and shikakai so I will mix those with my cassia and some sesame and coconut oil.

    No, I never notice any change in color but that is because my hair is hennaed and very red My guess is that on lighter shades it would darken hair. U can add any oil that benefits your hair and any herbs as well. Enjoy your creations

    I live in the UAE and they sell henna oil here. I've used it and it soothes the frizzies brilliantly (it is very humid here during the summer months). I can't tell if it deposits colour on the hair because I already henna my hair red but it stains my hands if I don't wash them immediately after using it.

    This is interesting it might as well stain hair since it is stained your hands.
    I guess if I used cassia it won't be much of a problem.
    I'm waiting to buy a tea ball to put my herbs in there and the steep them in to the oil
