Hair dyeing has been used for hundreds of years to offer hair a lovely look and protection, in addition to coloring grey hairs and causing them to seem younger. The need to look well and style yourself, as well as the impact of social media, has led to the widespread use of hair dyes. Because these hair colorants are synthetic, they have a history of causing numerous side effects. Natural elements in cosmetics are in high demand as a replacement for synthetic compounds. Emulgel is the dosage form that is created when gels and emulsions are mixed. The hydrophobic therapeutic moiety is inserted into the gels to create Emulgels. In this study, beetroot extract (Beta Vulgaris) and henna extract (Lawsonia inermis) were used as natural coloring agents, with aloe-vera (Aloe Barbadensis) and linseed (Linum Usitatissium) gel as a base medication. These medications are combined with Carbopol, a gelling agent. Vitamin-E oil is used as the emulsion's oil phase. Vitamin E adds luster to hair and ensures healthy steps, while Aloe-Vera helps to reduce hair thinning. Linseed also helps to reduce greying. The emulgel was discovered to be an oil-in-water emulsion. A prepared formulation is applied to specific areas of hair to be highlighted, which subsequently takes on an orange hue. After washing the hair, the discoloration is eliminated. The formulation's pH was discovered to be 6.5-6.9, which is hair-friendly. It was also discovered that the viscosity was in the region of 500-1000 cps, indicating that even a slight smear will spread easily. Based on the results, it can be concluded that the hair emulgel formulation contains all of the desirable characteristics of an ideal emulgel, is safe and effective, and may be used whenever hair coloring is necessary, replacing the usage of synthetic dyes.
