Taking care of your Mehndi design
Don't touch it, be careful, and let it dry.
It takes about 20 minutes to dry.
Leave the dried henna paste on for at least 2 hours.
The longer the better!
The design will be a very light orange color and will continue to get darker for 2-3 days.
Avoid getting the henna stain wet for a day.
To remove dried henna paste use lemon juice or natural oil (like coconut oil) instead of water.
To protect your henna design:
Olive or coconut oil, shea or cocoa butter, or a natural lip balm.
Doing this will shorten the duration of the design:
Vaseline, mineral oil, scrubs, soap, chlorine, frequent washing or rubbing.
Henna will take 3 days to fully darken!
Thank you and enjoy your henna art
