About Henna and After Care
Henna originates from the middle east and was often used in ceremonial events and festivites. Henna is a plant based paste made from a shrub called Lawsonia Inermis. The Leaves from the Henna Tree are dried, crushed and mixed with lemon juice, sugar and essential oils. The natural dye from the leaves stain the skin, leaving a beautiful design up to 3 weeks.
The henna designing process can take anywhere from 5 - 60 minutes depending on size and detail. The paste dries within an hour but must remain on skin for 4 - 12 hours. After peeling off dried henna paste, stain develops over 48 hrs. For best results avoid water for the first 24 hours.
