Would you like to purchase brow henna on your clients but you’re not sure how to use it? Or have you failed in creating even, long lasting colour on the skin?
Our henna is an original plant based product that allows you to achieve great colour on the skin and hair when both are properly prepared and the henna is correctly mixed and applied.
Before you start applying henna, you must prepare the skin in the correct manner.
Step 1: Use brow shampoo and massage gently through the hair and skin. Remove shampoo with Mineral Solution. As we well know, our skin consists of dead cells (old layer of the skin) that must be removed, otherwise your henna won’t settle down properly, creating holes and resulting in an inconsistent colour, which leads to faster peeling and fading of the colour.
Step 2: To remove dead cells use our gentle brow scrub and massage brows hair and the skin in circular movements. Wipe off the scrub properly using a lint-free pad and brow cleanser – make sure there is no product left in between hairs.
Let the hair and skin dry before you proceed applying henna.
Preparation of henna
Henna, if original and pure in its form, consists of a powder that only starts staining (releasing color), onced combined with Mineral Solution.
Step 3: Add 2-4 drops of Mineral Solution to 1 capsule of henna and blend it together in mixing glass or plastic container (non-metallic), by using our non-metallic brush.
Proportions henna shall be mixed in 1:1 or 1:2 proportions (first composition is henna, second composition is Mineral Solution). The more watery mixture the softer staining on the skin. If you make the mixture too thick, your colour might not stain consistently on the skin and the mixture will more likely dry out through the process of application which can create unexpected results.
Application of henna:
Step 4: Apply first, thin layer of henna in desired shape. Then apply a second, thick layer for the colour to settle down into the skin properly.
Henna will slowly become dry while you wait. Let it work for 20-40 minutes. Remove gently with Mineral Solution. Do not scrub.
Henna will be active for the next few days. Advise clients not to water their brows for the next 48h, nor be in contact with very humid air (avoid steam sauna, sauna as).
