HOW TO HENNA HAIR
Henna is a beautiful and healthy alternative to commercial dyes. Henna adds brilliant color and shine to dull hair. Henna can relax coarse curls and make hair more manageable. The exact shade depends on your natural color. Blondes can expect bright fire-engine shades while brunettes achieve auburn shades. Dark brown and black hair obtains beautiful reddish highlights. The more often you henna your hair, the deeper the overall shade will become.
Applying henna to your hair can get messy. Be sure to have lots of rags on hand!
HOW TO HENNA NAILS
Henna stains nails a brilliant orange and will last as long as the nail is there! When the nail grows, the base will not have color, but the rest of the nail will still be bright orange. The tips of the nails will lighten from wear but will never appear chipped. Henna can be re-applied to nails every 3-4 weeks to avoid the "half-moon" look. Henna is not only a healthy alternative to polish, but it looks unique and lasts a long time too!
TIP: Apply a coat of *liquid latex to the nail and skin around the nail after the paste dries. The paste will re-wet underneath the layer of latex to provide maximum staining. The latex will also prevent the paste from smooshing onto the skin. What we normally do at HennaMe is apply the henna before bed, apply the latex, then wrap fingers with toilet paper and go to sleep, removing the latex and henna in the morning.
*Liquid latex can be purchased through retailers who carry costumes or theatrical makeup.
