Henna packs help to add shine, body and bounce to the hair.
For oily, dandruff prone hair, add 4 teaspoons each of lemon juice and coffee, 2 raw eggs and enough “tea water” to the henna powder, mixing it into a thick paste. If you do not wish to use egg, add more tea water.
To make tea-water, boil used tea leaves again in enough water. After boiling, you should have about 4 to 5 cups of tea-water.
Cool and strain and add to the henna paste.
Apply the henna on the hair and wash off after an hour with plain water.
Take warm pure almond oil and soak the fingers and nails in it for 10 minutes.
Massage the oil on the nails and on the skin around nails.
Wipe off with a moist towel.

This is usually done with a piece of chamois leather. It should be gently rubbed with the chamois leather. It helps to remove discolouration on nails and also makes the nails shiny.
