How to Mix Red Raj Henna Powder for Body Art

1. Measuring the henna powder. Take 2 tbsp of henna powder (about 25 grams of henna) and place it into a glass or stainless steel bowl. Add 1 tsp of sugar of your choice and mix well.

2. Adding the lemon juice/water/tea brew. Heat your liquid (about 1/4 cup) on the stove and add it slowly to your henna powder. Mix well until it is the consistency of a thick yoghurt.

3. Adding essential oil. Then add 1 tsp of your essential oil. Mix well.

4. Too much liquid? If you add too much liquid add a little more henna powder to adjust.

You can cover your henna paste and allow to sit for 3-4 hours but I don’t. I mix my henna recipe and sometimes let it sit an hour to rest. I then take the henna paste I’ve made and cone it all up or place into carrot bags for storage. I place cones and carrots bags into the freezer and use when as needed when I’m ready to do so. The frozen paste will thaw naturally at room temperature. I am a true believer that freezing your henna paste for body art (and even for hair use) gives it a really nice boost in color.

5. Testing the paste. Should you decide that you want to use your henna paste that same day then after it has sat 3-4 hours you can test the paste out. It might need retesting every hour thereafter if you’re not seeing the recommended results. Test your henna paste by placing a bit of paste onto your palm and let it sit for at least 1 minute. Remove the paste by washing off and if you have a bright pumpkin orange stain that indicates that it’s ready to be used.

6. More liquid? Your henna paste when it’s ready to be used, should be a consistency of thick toothpaste (see below photo). If it’s feeling too thick for you adjust by slowly adding more of your liquid.

For more information on henna body art aftercare, applications methods and how to articles please visit our blog at When using any new hair product it’s always recommended that you do a hair strand tests or a skin patch test first. Even natural products can cause allergic reactions. Test before use. Keep yourself updated on free recipes, products, and sales on social media platforms @ HennaSooq (#HennaSooq) or at Important:

Please keep in mind that your hair is as individual and unique as you are. Henna and Ayurvedic treatments can be drying for some. It’s recommended that you add our aloe vera powder or one of our hair oils to your recipe and/or deep condition your hair afterwards. We recommend that all of our clients try varying recipes based on their individual hair needs and focus. Use the recipe that works best for your hair! 

Total amount of powder you should use:

Above ear length: 50-75 grams

Shoulder length: 100-125 grams

Bra strap or mid-back length: 150-175 grams

Lower back length (above hips): 200 to 225 grams

Hip/Waist length: 250 to 300 grams

Recommended Liquids:

• Water

• Apple Cider Vinegar

• Green Tea

• Note: For coloring treatments do not use heavy liquids such as yoghurt, shea/cocoa butters, conditioners, etc…as they dilute the color and won’t yield best color coverage.

How to mix and use our Red Raj:

1. Mix henna with one or more of our recommended liquids.

2. Allow the paste to sit for dye release for 3-4 hours.

3. Add enough liquid to make a paste into the consistency of pancake batter. Measurements aren’t always going to be exact, as each batch of henna can absorb varying amounts of liquid each time.

4. After dye release has been achieved, apply the henna paste to damp or dry hair in sections starting from the front and moving towards the back. Make sure to wear gloves when applying henna, as it will stain your hands.

5. Wrap your hair and allow henna to stay in hair from 3-4 hours.

6. Rinse, shampoo or co-wash the paste out, according to what works best for your hair. Your hair’s color will settle over the next 2 days.


• For redder tones add our hibiscus petal powder, beet juice, red tea or paprika

• For browner tones add our organic amla powder, coffee or black tea

    Covers grey hair perfectly

    Posted by Unknown on 10th May 2020

    I've been using Red Raj for over 5 years to cover up my grey roots, and I wouldn't use anything else. I have brown curly hair and this henna adds such a beautiful, red glow. I always get compliments on my hair colour, people call me Ariel from the Little Mermaid lol. This henna also makes my hair shinier (less frizzy) and just feels healthier. I wrote a blog post about this henna if anyone is interested in seeing pictures:

    Red Raj henna

    Posted by Unknown on 9th May 2020

    Used it on black hair, got some orange highlights on my greys. Otherwise the rest of the hair was fine. No significant change in colour, hair was just more shiny with a healthier look. It was my first time using hennasooq products, I want to try the Moroccan henna powder and the fresh organic Rajasthani Indian hair powder as well. Hope these products will be available soon. Otherwise I wasn't disappointed with red raj, it was exactly as described. The shipment was fast, with the product well packaged. Fatma was very professional on the phone. I was very impressed with the company overall, they won my business.

    Red Raj Henna is the ONLY Henna I will use

    Posted by Jutte on 29th Oct 2018

    I started using Henna Sooq's Red Raj henna a couple of years ago now and the colour is amazing!! My hair is strong, healthy and super shiny. Every time I use Red Raj to colour my roots, I do a gloss on the rest of my hair and it's an amazing hair treatment.

    Continues to be the best henna product for hair

    Posted by Leslie Sinclair on 5th Mar 2018

    Continues to be a high quality product that I can rely on. Effects are predictable and my hair receives many compliments.. unsolicited, from friends and my hairdresser!! She's tempted to give it a go in her hair. I've shared your order details with she can enjoy henna too.

    Very easy to mix and to put on the hair. I have a professional put it on for me so great job ! I recommend you put lots of Vaseline on your skin below the hairline as this henna really stains everything including clothes and skin flooring etc. I guess that's why its so good!
