Q: Henna brows process?
A: If you’ve ever had your brows tinted and waxed, then you’ll have an idea of how the process works. The first step for henna brows is all about cleansing and removing any oils from the skin. This is to ensure that your skin is super clean and ready for the henna. After your eyebrows are clean, they are then measured and shaped which also allows you to have some input before the process goes ahead. Next the henna is delicate and very carefully applied. The henna has to be pushed onto the skin to ensure it sits in between the hairs to give you that fuller effect. Once it is evenly applied and super sharp, it will sit there for about 10 – 20 minutes. When it’s done developing, it is wiped away and complete a high definition brow effect is left.
Q: What about the pros and cons?
• Henna brows tint and stain the skin giving you a more fuller, 3D effect.
• It’s great for those that have sparse brows
• It contains less chemicals and harsh ingredients so is a great option for sensitive skin
• It will last on the skin & hairs for up to 6 weeks
• Henna takes beautifully to grey hairs
• The oiler your skin, the less the skin stain will last
• Henna will not last as long with any skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, or dermatitis.
• For best results, the more brow hair the better. People with very little brow hair would not see as long lasting results.
Q: What’s the difference between regular tint and henna brows?
A: Regular eyebrow tint will only tint the hairs and lasts anywhere from 4-6 weeks. It is great for those that are happy with their eyebrow shape and don’t require any other shaping.
Henna will last just about the same but tinting the skin as well as the hairs which is great if you would like a better shape to your brows. It fills in anywhere you have gaps.
Q: Do I need a patch test?
A: Yes, absolutely! The patch test needs to be done at least 48 hours before treatment.
