How to prepare for your Henna Appointment?
Preparation is key…
Cleanliness is everything! Shower, and shave if needed the area of henna application.
Avoid body lotions, oils, etc. on the area where you want the design.
Design After Care..
For the Henna design to achieve max contrast and color depth, the design (with the optional protective tape) needs to be left on the skin for at least 18 hours and kept dry.
You may remove the protective tape and scrape/scrub off the remaining dried henna
The henna stain should continue to gradually darken for up to 36 hours after application.
Avoid contact with water for the first 18-24 hours. Coconut oil may be used to act as a water repellent and a skin moisturizer.
Avoid swimming, tanning, scrubbing or activities that lead to excessive sweating; during the first 3 days after henna application.
Can anyone get henna done?
Yes, except for infants and people with chronic blood disorders,
chronic immune system disorders, or people with G6DP deficiency.
Henna, also known as Mehndi, is a dye prepared from Lawsona Inermis, a hina or henna tree, which is found in tropical or subtropical climates. Its leaves are dried, crushed, and made into a paste as a natural plant based dye.
Henna has long been used to adorn women's bodies as part of social and holiday celebrations. Bridal henna nights remain an important custom to celebrate the wedding and marriage in some cultures. For birthdays and weddings, tradition holds that henna brings good luck and happiness and is considered a blessing.
