- In a stain-proof bowl, mix the basic henna recipe and the lemon juice. The acid in the lemon juice helps release the color of the henna.
- Whisk in the castor oil or egg yolk. The mixture is ready.
- Wearing an old shirt, apply this mask to damp hair. Wrap it in plastic wrap and then a clean, but old towel. (Make sure when you apply the henna you avoid your eyes, ears, neck and be careful to wipe off any henna below your hair line.)
- Keep the henna on your head for at least an hour; the longer it stays, the deeper the color will be!
