Biotique Henna Powder for Hair


This is not my personal review. I have never used Biotique Henna Leaf Conditioning Powder. But my very close friend who has some white hair that need coverage has, and this is her opinion: It Rocks!

She has used a variety of henna powders/hair colors and says that nothing she has used so far has been this gentle on her hair, & the color imparted is lovely and very natural (a very healthy looking natural dark brown and not the weird red/maroon color that most henna products give), with no chemical side-effects like hair fall, dry hair or dandruff.

Ingredients of Henna Leaf

1. Lawsonia Inermis (henna/mehandi) powder - 63% Colors white hair, coats to protect hair & conditions it.
2. Melia Azadirachta powder (neem) - 5% Anti-microbial & strenthens keratin (hair protein)
3. Gmelina Arborea powder (Gambhari) - 6% Promotes hair growth
Instant coffee.Image via Wikipedia

4. Terminilia Arjuna powder (arjun chhal) - 8% strenthens hair
5. Mangifera Indica (Mango seed powder) - 8% improves elasticity in hair
6. Arabica Gum - 5%


Since my friend uses it primarily to color her white hair she mixes two heaped spoons of this powder with half a spoon instant coffee to make a paste with water. Apply this to hair and scalp and leave for 2 hours.

Wash off with gentle shampoo.

Have you tried this product? or used henna to color your hair? what was your experience?

  2. @Dina: thks for yr comment! Like i mentioned in the post, I didn't use this prdt. My Friend did. I don't have white hair (yet!) and frankly henna doesn't suit me one bit.. Sorry but will not be able to help you here, if u have white hair at 23, u shd visit a trichologist (hair doctor).. They shd be able to guide you correctly, if u let them know that u want to use natural coloring options. I hope this helps :)

  3. I used Lush Henna caca rouge in my 5% greying hair and it gave it a great coverage. Henna is a great product I never used Biotique Henna Leaf but I wan to try i was actually looking for reviews. Just be careful make sure you buy 100% Lawsonia Inermis (henna). Any other additives could contain metal and turn your hair into mush. Hope this helps.

Reetha, Amla & Shikakai Home Made Shampoo - Weekend Experiment

Good Morning Lovelies, I hope your weekend was fun. Mines was, well, ho-hum, but anyways, we are not talking about that here (let’s save that cribbing for twitter).
I have been suffering from quite a bit of hair fall since some time. I have tried changing products to using intensive conditioning and the works. It stops the hair fall for while, but then it rears its ugly head again.
So on lark, & for lack of better things to do, my best friend & I decided to make some Reetha – Amla – Shikakai shampoo at home. This century old ayurvedic herbal concoction is reputed to not only strengthen hair, but also darken it and stop hair fall.
I got the 3 biggies from a local kirana store. All 3 are priced at 15 Rs for 100gms.

How to: Soak 5 pieces of Shikakai, 4 balls of Reetha  (Soapnut) & handful of Amla (Indian Gooseberry)  in about 500 ml of water overnight. In the morning, heat the mixture on gas till it just starts to boil. Let it cool, when lukewarm mash all the amla, reetha and…

Skin Care Myth: Sunscreen will stop you from Tanning

Image via Wikipedia I know I did a recent article on skin care myths (read it here), but I don't know how I forgot to mention this particular myth. In any case I think this warranted a post on its own.

Myth: If I use a suncreen regularly and religiously, I will not tan. 

Fact: This is a very simplistic statement. But before I bust this myth, kindly bear through a science lecture. This is to bring all readers of all backgrounds on the same knowledge level.



Lets define sunscreen (from Wikipedia):Sunscreen (also commonly known as sunblock or sun cream) is a lotion, spray, gel or other topical product that absorbs or reflects "some" of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the skin exposed to sunlight and thus helps protect against sunburn. Sunscreen helps protect only against direct DNA damage as it cannot dissipate UV as harmless heat.

The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen — the higher the SPF, the more protection a sunscreen …

I made "Washed Ghee" at home and it turned out great!

Yesterday I posted about the importance of fat in our diet. While doing research for the same I came across the recipe for "Washed Ghee" or Shata Dhaut Ghrita (100 times washed ghee).

After I read about this miracle at home cream, it was inevitable that I would try to create this cream myself. All I needed apparently was some cow ghee & water.

So I made it last evening. And here is how it went.


For those readers who haven't read the earlier post: Hundred times washed ghee is prepared from organic cow milk ghee by washing it in purified water, repeatedly, 100 times in a copper vessel, using a specific prescribed method while chanting some mantras

This procedure transforms the ghee into a soft, cooling, nourishing, silky unguent that is used as a traditional moisturizer and anti wrinkle skin cream. It produces radiant and glowing skin, especially for people with easily inflamed skin. It can be used as a daily face and body moisturizer or for facial massage. Apply it for…
