Henna Tips

One tip on getting darker henna stains

Hello there!

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,
