Henna Aftercare

Want to get a dark stain?

Follow the after care instructions

  • Leave paste on skin for at least 8-10 hrs. Overnight is even better.
  • Seal dried paste onto the skin by dabbing with cotton ball dipped in lemon sugar syrup.
  • HEAT is a friend of henna. Warming your henna design with the henna paste still on your skin will help in achieving a dark stain. You can warm your hand over the stove with 10-12 cloves, or in front of the fireplace or a space heater, or even use a heating pad.
  • Do not Wrap your henna with any kind of plastic wrap, saran wrap or madical tape. Doing this will make your hands sweat and henna deisgn witll smudge.
  • After 8-10 hours, do not wash off with soap and water. Scrape the paste off gently. You can use warm mustard oil for taking the paste off.
  • Avoid direct contact with water for the next 24 hrs. Keep stain coated with mustard oil/olive oil/coconut oil to create a barrier.
  • Apply Vicks vaporub the next night before going to bed.
  • Keep stain coated with mustard oil/olive oil/coconut oil before and after shower until your wedding day.
  • Henna stain will be light/bright orange at first and will darken to a deep brown over the next 48-60 hours. This gradual darkening of the stain is a sign that the henna paste is 100% natural!


What is Henna?

Henna (Lawsonia Inermis) is a flowering plant. The leaves of the Henna plant contain a natural and very effective coloring pigment: Lawsone. This Orange/Red dye releases as the leaves are crushed. Drying, milling, and sifting the Henna leaves into a fine powder maximizes the pigment (Lawsone) release.

What is the significance of Henna?

In India the "Ritual of Mehndi" is celebrated by the bride's family. The ritual is held one night before the wedding. It is looked at in the form of party or family gathering to enjoy the moments, wherein Henna is applied to the bride's hands and feet. Henna is considered auspicious, so it is applied to the bride and other female family members of the bride as a blessing to bring good luck in her married life.
