Powder henna is a natural, 100% plant-based product. The vitamins it contains tint the hair and skin but also nourish and improve the natural condition of the brows. Typical henna ingredients include the extract of Lawsonia inermis (also known as the henna tree), indigo leaf extract, as well as a complex of minerals and antioxidants.
It is advisable to have a patch test at least 48 hours prior to the appointment, to make sure that there is no allergic reaction to the products used. This is especially important in case of women who have never tried henna or any other hair dye before, as well as women suffering from allergies or expecting a baby.
Full treatment consisting of henna application and brow styling lasts approximately 60 minutes and consists of a few steps. First, the stylist works with the client to determine the desired shape and colour of the eyebrows. The next step is to cleanse and moisturise the skin and hair. Then, with the use of special threads and measuring devices, the stylist maps out the brow shape and applies white paste to protect the area around it from getting tinted. After applying henna with a precise brush, the stylist waits for up to 30 minutes, and removes it from the skin and hair. The final step is to give your eyebrows the chosen shape using tweezers or wax.
The final colour of the eyebrows can form for about 24 hours after the treatment. That is why in this time make-up should not be applied on the brow area. You should also restrain yourself from touching and rubbing the eyes and protect them from coming into contact with shampoos and hair conditioners. Also, after henna brow treatment swimming pools, saunas and prolonged sun exposure should be avoided.
