- IS A HENNA TATTOO HARD TO DO?
our kit and stencils it is easy, but you cannot do it alone. Anyone
who can trace the lines on the stencil can apply the henna paste. If
you don't have a friend or family member that can help you, ask your
hairdresser to do it. Most love the idea and are great at it. I mix
the henna paste at home and take it with me to minimize the time.
LONG DOES IT TAKE?
have to plan ahead and mix the henna paste at lease 6 hours in
advance and overnight is better. The first application can take from
45 minutes to 1 hour, but once the design is on your head and you
are more familiar with the materials and the process it only takes
15 to 20 minutes to re-trace if you do it before it fades.
LONG DOES IT LAST?
can vary a little. I find it lasts a full 7 days and can completely
disappear in 10 days. I have kept my tattoo going for more than a
month by re-applying henna paste once a week while it is easy to see
Tips that will help it last longer:
Keep it as dry as possible. Cover the design with Vaseline or a
shower cap while showering or swimming.
IF I WANT TO REMOVE THE TATTOO?
can speed up how fast it wears off by washing your scalp with soap
and a washcloth regularly. The water helps break the henna down and
the washcloth will gently exfoliate.
I NEED TO BE COMPLETELY BALD?
for the best results we do recommend it. I shave any stubble a day
before I apply a new henna design. If you are at a stage where your
hair is growing you may want to let the design wear off completely.
Then to re-apply, shave again and start fresh. If you shave with the
tattoo on it will disappear more quickly because you are removing a
layer of skin.
I HAVE AN ALLERGIC REACTION?
the "Earth Henna Body Painting Kit" only the Eucalyptus
oil ever causes an allergic reaction, and only in a very few people.
We recommend you test the oil on your skin and if it is a problem
use vegetable oil from your kitchen instead. People who may have had
a previous allergic reaction to henna probably had a solution
containing black dyes applied. Earth Henna Body Painting Kit does
not contain any dye.
