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

    Good product

    Posted by Dee on 14th Mar 2022

    I usually use Rajasthani or Jamila henna. I thought to give Red Raj a try. It is just as good, the henna powder is finer than the above henna and the paste is creamier. The dye release was quick. The color it yielded is similar to the henna I used before. But maybe because my hair is naturally dark. So far, it looks that Rajasthani Henna yielded darker red on my hair. However, I dyed with Red Raj only two days ago so it might get darker. Thank you, it's definitely recommended. Good clean Henna.

    Quality, smell,

    Posted by Njeri on 21st Jul 2021

    The ordering process was fantastic; even with Covid restrictions still in place. I didn't get the shade of red I was going for- but I completely suspect it has to do with my having used too much amla. A little goes a long way though so I am looking forward to touching up after the suggested times. Love this product and I love HennaSooq

    Red Raj

    Posted by Kirsty on 3rd Mar 2021

    This is the first time for me using the red raj, and so far i love the results! It has only been since yesterday so the colour is still developing but it is already such a rich red! My hair is naturally a medium/dark brown so when i did my first henna treatment just over a month ago on my natural hair it didn’t get to be the bright red that i was aiming for. After doing lots of research and strand testing I ended up bleaching over my dark hennaed hair to lighten it enough that i could achieve the colour i wanted with another henna treatment on top of it. After bleaching my hennaed hair it became a bright strawberry blonde orange red colour that was really cool to keep for a few weeks before my next henna treatment. For that i ended up using the Light Mountain brand, which was bright at the start but faded down fairly quickly and was still not the shade i wanted. So i ordered the red raj and mixed it up as soon as it showed up at my doorstep. The results are fantastic! A deep rich red colour right away and so silky! Exactly what i had been hoping for
