What is Henna

What is Henna?
Henna tattoos are non-permanent dying or staining on the top layer of skin using a henna paste product, the process is called Mehndi. Henna is a popular type of skin adornment in South Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and Somalia. The tattoos are generally an intricate design and brown in color. They will fade in time, about 2-4 weeks, depending on the type of henna that has been used. It is close to impossible to remove except through the natural fading.
During Henna
Henna paste is usually applied on the skin using a plastic cone or a paint brush, but sometimes a small metal-tipped jacquard bottle used for silk painting is employed. After about 15–20 minutes, the mud will dry and begin to crack, and during this time, a mixture of lemon juice and white sugar can be applied over the henna design to remoisten the henna mud so that the henna still stain darker. The painted area is then wrapped with tissue, plastic, or medical tape to lock in body heat, creating a more intense colour on the skin. The wrap,is worn three to six hours, or sometimes overnight and then removed.
After Applied
When first removed, the henna design is pale to dark orange in colour and gradually darkens through oxidation, over the course of 24 to 72 hours. The final color is reddish brown and can last anywhere from one to three weeks depending on the quality and type of henna paste applied, as well as where it was applied on the body (thicker skin stains darker and longer than thin skin).
Moisturizing with natural oils, such as olive, sesame seed, or coconut, will also help extend the lifetime of the stain, as skin exfoliation is what causes the henna tattoo to fade.
  • Henna tattoos are a fraction of the cost of a regular tattoo.
  • Henna tattoos are a great choice for people that are unsure if they really want a tattoo.
  • They can be a great way to determine if the tattoo is something that you would like and also allows you to experiment with the design being placed on various parts of the body, until you find the area where the tattoo is just right.
  • Henna tattoos can be applied easily and quickly.
  • Once the pattern has been drawn on to the skin and allowed to dry, the tattoos can be easily be seen after the residue has been cleared from the skin.
Instant Henna
PPD is a very common type of ink that is added in instant henna mixtures which requires prior testing for allergic reactions or any unknown skin type reactions. Most of the time service provider do require customer to sign a release of liability clause. 


What is Brazilian Waxing

What is Brazilian Waxing?
A Brazilian wax is a quick way to have unwanted coarse pubic hair removed safely and efficiently. A Brazilian wax is an intrepid form of hair removal that gets easier to withstand and less painful over time.
This form of hair removal  is semi permanent.  A Brazilian wax is different from a standard bikini, French or American wax because all of the hair from the genital area, the perineum as well as the anus is typically removed.
During Wax
A versatile wax such as a sugar-based wax is the most popular wax used in Brazilian waxes. Hair is removed from the bikini line and the even the belly button area, but the Brazilian removes all hair. Tweezers are sometimes use to catch all stray hairs not removed during the wax so a completely bald and hairless look is achieved.
After Care
Follow-up care consist of a botanical first aid solution, as well as no abrasive touch for up to 24 hours after the wax. No hot baths or tight-fitting clothing should be worn.
  • One can safely wear their lingerie or bikini without worrying about exposing stray pubic hairs.
  • Once perfomed frequently, hair tends not to grow back as frequently or grow in quite as dark.
  • The genital area is kept cleaner without getting bacteria and urine trapped in the pubic hair.
