DO NOT TOUCH IT while it is drying. It may take 15-20 minutes or longer to dry depending on the weather. As it dries, it will harden and crack. Spray or dab the design with lemon juice and sugar to hold the paste in place, then leave on for 4-8 hours. When the paste falls off, the design will be a very light orange color and will darken over the next couple of days. Avoid getting the design wet and keep warm for the rest of the day.
To help remove dried paste and condition your tattoo apply coconut oil, olive oil, cocoa butter or shea butter. Reapply before and after bathing, dish washing or water sports.
Do not use petroleum products. Soap, chlorine, frequent washing and clothing worn over designs will cause henna to fade more quickly.
The design will take up to 3 days
to develop its deepest red-brown color.
Henna is an all-natural plant based paste consisting the powdered leaves of the Persian shrub Lawsonia inermis, essential oil, lemon juice and white sugar.
Have some henna fun at your next party or event!
