What is Henna

Posted on August 25, 2012 at 3:56 PM
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.
 
Benefits
  • 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.

Yeah, I agree with you. It’s really a beneficial post for Henna. I used henna tattoos so many times; because my mother is from Asia. And got that idea from my mother. Though I had used several times but I did not have the benefits of it. Thanks for this post
