What is Henna?
Henna is a paste made out of the leaves of the Lawsonia Inermis Plant (Henna Plant). This plant is found and grown around South Asia and North Africa and used to make Henna powder which can then be made into a paste and used for temporary body tattoos, hair dye and various other things. Please note that Henna for hair is devloped differently therefore please DO NOT use it on skin. The paste suitable for body art acts as a 100% natural skin dye which can last up to 14 days, providing sufficient aftercare is maintained after application. Henna is also called 'Mehndi' in asian cultures and traditionally applied at mehndi nights where family members and friends are adorned with henna tattoos to prepare them for the wedding celebrations. Our Henna stain is a dark reddish-brown colour at its peak.
What is Glitter Henna?
Glitter Henna is a 100% skin safe temporary glitter paste which can embellish your henna tattoo and add glamour to your look for the duration of the event. Glitter typically lasts for the day, unless exposed to water.
Is Henna Safe?
Our Henna is 100% natural and homemade. The Henna powder is mixed with essential oils and water to make the paste and has been used on people of all ages and skin types. Natural Henna stains are a dark brown, reddish-brown or coffee colour, any other colour is not natural or original henna and should be researched before applying on skin.
How do you apply Henna and how long does it take?
The Henna paste is filled and sealed in cones, which are then cut at the tip and ready to use. The application time is dependent on the intricacy of the design. For our henna packages, the finger to wrist trails take up to 3 minutes per trail to apply and up to 15 minutes to dry thereafter.
Is there any aftercare to get the best stain results?
It is recommended that the paste is kept on the skin for a minimum of 60 minutes. The dried paste should then be scrubbed off not washed and when possible olive oil or coconut oil should be rubbed into the henna'd area overnight.
How long will it last?
Henna stains typically last up to 2 weeks and is dependent on how much you wash the henna'd area. To get the best results it is recommended to avoid water to area for at least 24 hours after application and to refrain from using alot of soap and water to that area thereafter.
What is Black Henna and is it safe?
Black Henna is not actually Henna. It is made using a chemical called PPD (para-phenylenediamine) which is a synthetic coal tar dye and can have adverse reactions on our skin. A minor reaction involves itchiness and rashes to the tattooed area, a severe reaction involves burns and permanent scarring to the skin. We strongly recommend NOT using Black Henna under any circumstance to avoid such reactions.
