Henna

Henna is a plant (Lawsonia inermis) found in desert regions. The leaves are dried, crushed, and mixed with ingredients that vary by artist. My paste includes water, essential oils, and organic sugar. It is applied to the skin to leave a stain in beautiful  and intricate designs.

Aftercare

Henna stains can last 2-3 weeks with good aftercare. Remember that it is a stain on your skin, so as you exfoliate, your henna will fade. If you follow the recommendations below, you will get a dark, long lasting stain!

Allow the paste to dry completely, this can take up to an hour depending on your design

Leave the paste on as long as possible with a minimum of 6 hours

When the paste is removed, your henna stain will be bright orange. This will darken to a dark reddish brown over the next 48 hours

Do not get your henna stain wet for at least 24 hours. Water stops the oxidation process and prevents your henna from getting darker

When you need to get wet, protect your henna from the water with a thin layer of oil (olive, vegetable, or coconut oils are fine)
