We all know that its all natural and very safe but how does it actually work?
Henna is a small tree, and its leaves contain a dye which stains your skin - similar to turmeric or beets. However with henna, the dye molecule (lawsone) binds to the keratin in your skin (and hair!), which makes it a permanent stain! Henna penetrates only the top few layers of skin, so as your skin exfoliates away, so does the henna stain. This is what makes it temporary compared with a permanent ink tattoo. Ink tattoos use a needle to penetrate deeply enough that they will not exfoliate away.
The stain will gradually darken over the course of about 48 hours. This happens because of oxidization. Air oxidizes the henna stain much like it does an apple.
Henna is the dried, powdered leaf of the henna plant. It's mixed with a liquid, sugar and essential oils to get the proper consistency for brow staining.
Henna is completely natural!
If you find that your brows are thin in spots henna is the perfect solution for you. Not only does henna dye the hair follicles but it will also stain your skin, giving you brows that appear thicker and look darker.
Because of the fact that henna also tints your skin this means that your brows will look fabulous for longer, and you won't need to come in as often for fills.
Henna is also completely safe for use on your lashes, so ask us about henna tints for lashes next time you come in!
