How long will my henna last?
My Henna design can last anywhere from 4 days to 3 weeks, depending upon where on the body they are done, and how well you follow my after care instructions.
Depending on your skin, you may still get varied results but no clients of mine have yet complained about the quality of stain and I hope to keep it that way.
Henna stains the top few layers of skin cells and fades gradually with natural skin exfoliation over the course of 1-3 weeks.
Its not a permanent tatoo, so come over and get a new one whenever you wish like.
where can i apply henna?
Henna stain is the darkest on the coarsest, thickest skin, which is the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. The further you move away from these areas, the lighter the henna stain will be.
Its been observed that shoulder will come out as an attractive rich reddish brown while the palm of the hand will stain an almost dark cherry black. Typically, hands, arms, shoulders, feet, ankles, legs, and even the back are great areas to get a henna design.
Henna does not stain well at all on the face or neck area due to skin composition. Every person has a different skin composition, so each person may stain a bit differently. Click here to see my gallery
How do i get best henna Stain?
Please follow following before and after care instructions for best results. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a dark stain and smile on your faces
before you apply henna
Properly clean the skin area where Henna is to be applied
Do not apply oil, lotions, or any gel before Henna session, if applied clean it thoroughly and let it dry completely
after care for best results
Leave Henna paste on the skin for 6-8 hours, overnight is even better
Henna paste loves heat. Some of my passionate clients even use heating pad, fireplace or even space heater. If you sweat, don't worry, keeping henna paste moist for longer time will only help with darker stain. Please exercise common sense judgement while doing it
Take cotton ball, dip them in sugar-lemon juice syrup and apply on the Henna. You can chose to apply Heat again. Repeat process 3-4 times.
Some of my super passionate clients go all the way and wrap sugar-lime cotton balls on the palm, wrap them with sock, paper towel, medical bandage and keep the hand and Henna stain moist and warm.
Henna stain will be light/dark orange at first. In next 48-60 hours the stain will get darker gradually. The gradual progression of color proves the Henna paste is natural like my Henna recipe. For best results set up your Henna session 2 -3 days in advance of your special occasion.
DO NOT apply soap, water to remove Henna. Once Henna paste is dry and its time to remove it, gently scrap off the Henna from your skin.
