Basma is a natural dye used by women since ancient times. It is currently used in combination with henna for hair dyeing. There are several ways to dilute the paint.
It is necessary
- - henna;
- - glass or porcelain dishes;
- - wooden spatula;
- - hot water;
- - olive oil.
Do not dye your hair with basma alone, otherwise your hair will turn blue-green. Dilute it with henna. Depending on the ratio of ingredients, you can get different shades.
For a light chestnut color, mix henna and basma in equal proportions in a glass or porcelain dish. For chestnut color - in a ratio of 2: 1 (henna: basma), black - 1: 2. You will get a rich black color if you dilute 1 part of henna with 3 parts of basma.
Take 25-200 grams of the mixture, depending on the length of your hair. Pour boiling water over it and stir with a wooden spatula until the consistency of sour cream. Break up all the lumps.
Let the dye sit for 40 minutes and then apply it to your hair.
You can brew basma with henna with hot water (temperature about 80 ° C), decoction or herbal infusion. To give your hair a rich chestnut shade, use strong coffee, tea or buckthorn broth, heated red wine for a red hue, and beet juice for purple. Dilute the mixture with acidified water for golden sparkles in colored hair. Add lemon juice or apple cider vinegar (a teaspoon to a glass of water), or a few crystals of citric acid. For a mahogany hue, add 3-4 teaspoons of cocoa to the water.
If you have dry or thin hair, pour hot milk, kefir or yogurt at room temperature into the dye.
Add 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil to evenly distribute the mixture.
Gruel of sour cream consistency is intended for roots. To color hair lengthwise, prepare a new portion with double the amount of liquid or dilute the existing one with hot water. It is easier to distribute liquid paint through the hair, while thick paint will dry out and fall off in lumps from the hair, leaving light spots.
