  3. Put on the complimentary gloves found in the box of Surya Henna Powder.
  4. Open the pouch of Surya Henna Powder and pour into a plastic or glass bowl. Add half a cup of lukewarm water. Blend into a uniformed paste. Mix well until the consistency is thick and creamy.
  5. Gently apply the paste to the hair, still wet, with a proper application brush. Be careful to always use the gloves.
