Then, what does henna do to your hair?

Henna hair dyes coat the cuticle, or outer part of the hair shaft, and do not penetrate the cortex of the hair, where the hair's proteins and moisture are housed. This means that henna provides shine and condition to the hair, and the cocoa butter is deeply hydrating.
