Godrej Nupur Henna Powder

Post by envizionj on 3rd February 2010, 9:23 pm

Hi All, [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I wanted to start using henna since I noticed that my Bigen that covers my grays is starting to damage my hair now that I use it every 6 weeks. I used to color my hair every 3 months or longer when I wore wigs. Now that my hair is out, I have to color minimum of every 6 weeks and use my mascara color brush for my new grays while I wait for the 6 week period. Bigen has a high PPD and the chemicals are probably doing major damage.

Has anyone ever used the Godrej Nupur Henna Powder? I was wondering if I could simplify the henna process and use this one product rather than do the 2-step of hennaing first and then using indigo.

I've used this one many times. I do like it. Are you trying to get your hair black? I still get some red when i use it... i however use lime juice or vinegar in my mix and leave it on for 6-8 hours (if not longer)

If you don't mind having red highlights, you should give it a try! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I want to color my gray roots black to match the rest of my hair. I guess I will have to do the 2 step to achieve that look. I don't want fire roots. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Yes, i think indigo would be the way to go. I know a friend of mine does it for her mom and her hair looks fabulous. It's worth it. Chemical dyes are a waist.

Keep me posted! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

CurlyLeA, I definitely will give you an update. I placed my order with Sharika at http://butters-n-bars.com on yesterday. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] I'll probably use a sour orange/orange juice instead of lemon juice since it tends to make my skin itchy.

Hello envizion,

What was your experience with godrej nupur? I just purchased a bag and I think I want to put in extra brahmin or alma. What do you think. What does the lemon or orange do?

@djackson,

I've used it. I liked the conditioning benefits, it's very nice in that department. However, if you are using it to try and cover greys I didn't find the stain to be as good as 100% henna, it faded after a while. If your hair is black or dark then this will not be a problem. Goodrej nupur is a blend of henna with other herbs, from memory shikakai, amla, aloe vera and others. You might like to do a search on LCHF as well as there has been past discussion about Nupur on there, a lot of which was favourable.

I have a question girls. I was wondering if it would be a good idea to mix the indigo in the nupur henna, if you want to have jet black hair color . What do you think?

So what I'm gathering is that his henna mix works well if you don't want to have the the red but more conditioning, especially if you don't use a acid like lemon juice as CurlyLea did. Correct?
I reviewed the link that you sent, and the reviews sound good in regards to achieving or maintainig dark hair. I may even try it. I've been on this black tea thing for a bit, curious to try it first with water maybe then with black tea, as it's been said to help make your henna darker.

This is one of the ingredients Bhringraj, this is known for darkening the hair.
The link was informative.

Hmmm I just bought Nupur today along with some Amla....they were $1.99 each so I figured why not try it! The Henna I bought was $7 for 500 grams....it has a date stamp of 8-09....Im wondering if its still good to use? Anybody have any idea?

Yes, the date stamp refers to the crop its from. So its still safe to use.
