Red Henna contains tannins. Tannins have astringent properties which tighten the surface of the scalp and hair follicles, strengthening each follicle's grasp on the hair. Henna penetrates each hair shaft and seals the hair cuticle, thereby healing the hair shaft. This helps prevent breakage of hair, adds shine, promotes hair growth, and helps prevent premature graying. Henna has antiseptic, antibacterial, astringent, and antifungal properties. Therefore it can eliminate lice, reduce hair dandruff, and treat scaly scalp conditions.
regular use of red henna will make your hair more beautiful,
full-bodied, and generally healthier.
According to the principles of Ayurveda, radiant skin can only be achieved when one is in balance and healthy. Our skin is a reflection of what is going on inside and we can't expect to have have beautiful glowing skin unless our diet and lifestyle are in harmony with our constitution.
Vata skin has the same qualities as air and space. In general it is thin, dry, and delicate, with fine pores and cool to the touch. If you have a lot of Vata in your constitution and are imbalanced, your skin will likely be rough, flaky, and excessively dry with possible eczema. The greatest challenge for Vata-type skin is its disposition to early wrinkles and loss of elasticity.
Pitta is mostly fire, so Pitta skin tends to experience heat imbalances like acne, heated rashes, rosacea, liver spots, and pigment disorders. If you have a predominance of Pitta in your constitution, your skin will likely be ruddy, pink, or red, and will tend to be prone to freckles and moles. Pitta skin is warm and of medium thickness. Pitta-type skin is very fair, sensitive, and sunburns easily.
Kapha skin tends to have all the qualities of water and earth. Kapha-type skin is pale, thick, oily, soft, and cool to the touch. Kapha-type skin ages well and doesn't wrinkle much. It is the most tolerant of the three types, but can sometimes be greasy or have large pores and blackheads when imbalanced.
