Frequality Asked Questions

Henna is a plant that grows in many countries, mostly in semi-arid and tropical areas of India, Pakistan, Morocco, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Africa. Henna powder is derived from the henna plant. The leaves are dried, powdered and sifted to give super fine henna powder.
Henna powder, on its own, does not stain the skin. Henna powder is mixed with lemon juice/water and essential oils (like cajeput, lavender, eucalyptus etc) to make the henna paste. When the dye in the paste is released, the henna paste is ready to stain the skin.
Henna paste is filled into henna cones with very fine tips & then applied on the skin. Henna can also be applied using applicator bottles.
Natural henna cannot produce instant, dark results. It reaches its darkest colour in approx. 36-48 hours. It first stains a bright orange, then gradually gets darker till it reaches a dark maroon / brown / cherry colour. Hence henna should always be applied 2-3 days before the event.
Yes it does ! Keep warm when the henna is on the skin. You can seal the henna with lemon-sugar sealant. Keep the henna on for 6-8 hours or overnight, then crumble it off. Avoid water contact for the first 24 hours, to allow the colour to deepen. Keep warm, well moisturised with oil ( coconut / mustard / olive ) & away from water to achieve the best results with henna.
Henna is NOT Black !! There is no such thing as Black Henna ! Para-phenylenediamine PPD (chemical hair dye) is used to make black henna. This can cause sever scarring as well as damage to internal organs. Ensure to check that the henna that is being applied on you is 100% Natural.
Henna stain can last between 2-3 weeks, depending on the aftercare followed and the part of the body it is applied on. Swimming, scrubbing away at the stain can cause the stain to fade away quicker.
