FAQ

  • Is Henna Black?

Henna is never black. It always stains burgundy brownish tone. There's a safe alternative to black henna is called Jagua.

  • What is Jagua?

Jagua ( scientific name Genipa americana) is a tropical fruit. It derive from berry family. The fruit is close to the size of an orange. It is found in the deepest areas of Amazon forest in Brazil. It stains blackish bluish tone and lasts for 2/3 weeks.

  • How long Henna/Jagua lasts?

Henna is a permanent dye. Due to exfoliation on our skins Henna stains fade away. Typically Henna and jagua both lasts between 2/3 weeks. Excessive exfoliation, washing hands or using alcohol based products can dry your skin and ultimately cause your henna to fade earlier. Chlorine water (pool) can also makes your henna fades away faster.

  • How can I make my henna stay for a long time?

Avoid washing your hands right after your Henna comes off. Keep your henna at least for 8/10 hours and spray lemon sugar solution every hour. after the paste removal do not wash your hands for another 8 hours. Following these steps will help your henna to get darker and lasts longer. Your organic Henna stain will start light orangish stain and will transform to deep burgundy brown stain over the time period. Typically between 36-48 hours you will see the darkest possible stains. 

This tips is only for Organic Henna (brown stain. Jagua has a different instruction to follow.

 

  • How to take care of Jagua Henna stain?

 

 

Jagua is a very vibrant stain so you have to be careful about smearing your designs. If you smeared it accidentally no matter what you do that smeared stain will always show up. So, staying still while your Jagua gel is getting dry is very important. It only takes between 2-3 hours of soaking process. after 3 hours wash your hands thoroughly in lukewarm water. It starts like a very faint traces but you will see significant color change after the 12th hour of paste removal. It will take up 36 hours to color to reach the peak stain.

  • What preparation should I follow before my appointment?

All henna appointments start with cleanliness. Please do not use any lotion, oil or makeup in your skin where Henna will be applied.

 

Also have your personal belongings handy to you.

 

If you are getting your both hands or feet or any 'back' designs done then have some one who can help you drive the car. Otherwise you may have to wait for a longer period of time, which may go over your designated time period that you have booked for. 

If too many designs are complicated in one session then we can always set up a different date/ time for rest.

  • What is BLACK HENNA? Why it is dangerous?

Black henna is a chemical based paste which can be deadly. A lot of the time this paste is made from ingredients that is used in Hair Dye. Most Henna products finding in international store, grocery store or other places are not made of natural ingredients. Henna is perishable so it can not survive and has no shelf life. It has to be put away in the freezer to keep it fresh for months. 

We advise our clients to ask artists about their ingredients or how they make the paste. Professional henna artists only make their own paste from natural ingredients only.

  • What ingredients do you use in your henna paste?

I only use highest grade quality organic Henna powder from India and Pakistan. I mix therm with water, sugar and safest grade essential oil blends (sweet orange, lavender and Cajeput). Sometimes I use eucalyptus but people with allergies and eczemas are encourage to avoid it. 

  • Can you be allergic to Jagua?

Both Henna and Jagua are carefully made from natural ingredient only. However in rare cases some may be allergic to them. For instance, if you are allergic to berries then please avoid Jagua. You can do a consultation over the phone or in person to test out the products before you get a bigger piece of design on your body. 

 

We highly recommend our brides to set up our one-on-one consultation (It's not free) before your Big day to try out different options.
