With day-to-day busy life and the increasing pollution around, it is becoming difficult to maintain healthy hair. So, every month I make sure that I go to the parlour and get henna applied to my hair. Though I do not have the problem of grey hair, I do have split ends and at times hair fall problem as well. I want to condition my hair regularly and henna ofcourse is the natural hair conditioner. It not only helps in hair growth but also makes the hair silky and shiny. Recently I faced a bad experience at the parlour. The henna which was applied to me was not of good quality as it caused a lot of trouble to my hair later. I had a terrible week with bad hair because of that. From then I decided that I cannot take this risk again. I wanted to do it all by myself and I went in for VLCC Ayurvedic Henna. Do read further to know my experience with this henna.

My Experience With VLCC Ayurvedic Henna:
The two things which made me go for this henna are it is Ayurvedic and it comes from VLCC. Given the list of ingredients which are all natural, the powder smelled the same. All I had to do is just add water and make a paste. Since my hair is medium in length I took two sachets of this henna.
While making this into a paste, I kept getting lumps, so it took some 5 mins to make it into a fine paste. I applied it taking few strands of my hair and thus completed the entire hair. The application was easy and went on without any hassles. It gave a cool feeling when applied. I kept it on for more than the time mentioned, say for about one hour as the henna was still wet on my hair.
It was also quite easy to wash it away. After hair wash, the hair was soft and smooth. All in all, I would say it is a good product for hair conditioning, given its reasonable price and natural ingredients.
