Henna cones do this sometime but is nothing big. Typically this happens if the cone has been warm for a little while.
The best thing to do is to squeeze the first little bit from the tube before application. This liquid will stain but since is is liquid it will spread and not be precise like the paste.
Our suggestion is to wipe the liquid off before it sits on you skin too long. Just a short few minutes won’t stain too much and won’t remain for long.
I will try and find a picture of this and post later.
Over the years people have asked us here at Red Head Henna to reveal our secrets to a darker and longer lasting stain.
Today we reveal one of our best tips…
Heat. Henna loves to be warm.
When the paste in on your skin and you are waiting the 6-12 hours for it to stain your skin, expose that drying paste to heat of some kind.
A hairdryer is a perfect tool for this. Once the henna is dry, blow dry the design for 5-10 minutes being careful not to burn yourself. Make sure to take a break in between to apply some sealant such as our Citrus Spray, then blow dry again. It is ideal to do this a few times in a row.
Well that is our tid bit for today!
Good luck all your henna artists,

See the difference?
