Henna on Hair
These days it is being increasing adopted by the western hemisphere mainly because of its excellent natural properties to colour hair without the harmful chemicals like ammonia or hydrogen peroxide, not only for dyeing hair but also for tinting eyebrows.
The effects of henna on your brows hair will last for nearly 4 weeks, and it also stains your skin underneath which stays up-to a week depending on various factors like your skin type, and the after care of your brows once the procedure is complete.
Henna comes in the forms of leaves which are processed and a paste is prepared which is applied skillfully on your brows and it is left to dry for about twenty minutes and is washed off after that. This causes the natural components in the henna paste to leave their tinted effect on your brows. For better results we recommended slightly longer wait before washing but if you are in a hurry, 15-20 minutes gives you a good tint on the skin.
