Hi Beauties! Today my post is about Patanjali Herbal Mehandi Review. These days BHB is raving about Patanjali products & so am I. Patanjali store is near my house since two years, but I never bothered to get in. Just out of curiosity and so many awesome reviews on BHB, finally I landed in the store this weekend. Oh my god, so many cost-effective products ranging from grocery to beauty products. I could not ask for more. And in all these, I found these Patanjali herbal mehandi packs at one corner of the store. Since, I was out of my current stock of VLCC henna, I grabbed it along with lots of items.
From my experience, I can only say that you need to visit and test the product yourself before coming to any conclusions. Patanjali products are very affordable and much effective than these highly expensive chemical loaded multi national foreign brand. Henna or mehandi is something I have been using since college days but the usage only increases in winters as mehandi helps in keeping my dandruff at bay. So, let us take a look at Patanjali Herbal Mehandi Review.
Price of Patanjali Herbal Mehandi : Rs.35/- for 100 gm
Directions For Use :
Shelf Life : 24 months
Color : mehandi color (darkest green)
Smell : Same like mehandi
What Patanjali Herbal Mehandi claims
Patanjali Herbal Mehandi has been made from goodness of 11 herbs. It naturally strengthens the hair and condition & color it and it also provides cooling to scalp.
My Experience With Patanjali Herbal Mehandi
The packaging of Patanjali Herbal Mehandi is simple. It is a simple plastic bag with mehandi in powder form. This powder can be mixed with water to form a paste and then apply on hair. As per the directions, it should be mixed in iron pot and kept overnight. I did not use this powder for almost a month since I did not have a iron pot. Finally I purchased one last month as you can see in the pictures. If you do not have iron pot, you can mix some iron nails and then soak the mehandi. The results would be the same.
I use coffee concoction to soak the Patanjali Herbal Mehandi powder, as coffee gives a nice deep brown color to the hair. According to your preferences, you can mix in beet juice, hibiscus flowers, curd, oil, egg etc. for me, I only used the coffee concoction as it suits my hair the most and I did not want any bright color. The color of the powder mix turns dark blackish the next day. I applied and kept on for around 2 hours.
I did not use shampoo the first time I washed my hair to remove the Patanjali Herbal mehandi. My hair had become quite dry and rough. I oiled my hair and the next day, I washed my hair with shampoo along with conditioner. And my hair became shinier and healthier. My dandruff reduced to a great extent. One of the best thing is it did not impart any color to my hair but only a hint of color which I really loved. Over a time, I hope this would give my hair a nice tint of brown. I would not recommend using this every week, but once in a month is fairly advisable, as it makes hair little dry.
One pack is enough to be used 4 -5 times depending on the length of the hair. This is not a powder of only mehandi but ten ingredients which includes Mehandi, amla, shikakai, brahmi, brihngraj, etc. Getting all this ingredients in one powder form and at such a reasonable price is quite a good deal.
Overall, I would say it is one of the most affordable mehandi available in the market, which boosts shine and strength to hair. It also helps to keep dandruff at bay.
