To ensure you get the best possible stain from your henna application, please read these tips carefully.
How you take care of your henna in the first 24 hour can affect the darkness and longevity of your design.
LEAVE PASTE ON : for as long as you possibly can. Preferable overnight 4-6 hrs minimum.
WRAP: To protect your paste, (and sheets!) while sleeping you can either wrap your hand gently in toilet tissue and tape shut or wear a thin sock or glove.
DO NOT USE SOAP: After paste removal and for 24 hours do not allow soap to touch your stain. Do not scrub with abrasive products or exfoliates, do not come in contact with bleach or other cleansers. You may rinse paste off with warm water or allow it to flake off. No water is best.
PROTECT: You can extend the life of your design by frequent applications of olive oil, balm or Tiger Balm. Be cautious of moisturizing products with exfoliates or acids as they may fade your design. Tiger balm is great right after paste removal. Whenever showering or entering a chlorinated pool, apply Vaseline or balm to protect your design.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Natural safe Henna is NEVER BLACK. Henna Moon Always uses safe natural ingredients. Remember that everyone stains differently depending on their chemistry. After paste removal your design may be a bright orange that will deepen over 72 hours to a dark shade of brown. As your design ages it will fade or be removed by exfoliation. It stains the skin, hair and nails permanently. Skin cells are exfoliated off. Nails and hair must grow out
If you have any questions I will be more than happy to answer them.
