What Exactly are Henna Brows?
Henna brows are a type of eyebrow tinting in which the skin behind the brow hairs is stained. The goal is to cast a shadow or create a sense of depth and fullness in the area, visually filling in any gaps.
Henna is a natural dye derived from the henna tree plant. Henna has been around since ancient Egyptian times when it was used to color hair, garments, linens, and as make-up.
The process for henna brows is quite similar to traditional Indian henna coloring methods, but the hues have been developed to cater to eyebrow tones. The semi-permanent brow henna is the answer to your brow problems.
What is the Henna Brow Procedure?
In general, sculpt your brow line into your desired form with wax and tweeze, then choose a suitable henna hue to utilize.
Henna powder and demineralized water are combined to make a paste, which is then applied to the form of your brows and let soak into the skin for 10-15 minutes.
For an ombré appearance, less intensity is applied to the brow, with more vigor in the arch and tail.
How do henna brows compare to other forms of temporary makeup?
We’ve found it useful for people who desire improved brow definition but aren’t quite ready to commit to cosmetic tattooing or microblading. When compared to other types of eyebrow tinting, henna tinting is more efficient at staining the skin. It will look more matte and fluff than ordinary tinting. Traditional hair and brow dyes will efficiently tint the hair, however, henna will successfully grip the skin.
How long do henna brows stay and how do you keep them looking good?
Eyebrow henna tinting kit normally last up to 6 weeks, but this depends on your skin type. If you have dry skin, henna brows will last a little longer than if you have an oily complexion. Recommends not over-washing your face to keep them as long as possible. Conditioners and oils can also be purchased to help them last longer.
Henna hair color is thought to be a good conditioner for your hair, making it stronger, thicker, and shinier. It may also aid in restoring the natural pH balance of your hair and scalp! Henna is a long-lasting hair dye. The color is most brilliant for the first 4 to 6 weeks, and in my experience, it gradually fades after that, but I’m not sure it ever entirely fades. Keep in mind that going lighter in color may be difficult if you wish to dye your hair later. Henna is extremely difficult to remove from your hair later!
I had no idea what I was getting myself into the first time I tried henna. I recommend massaging the henna through your hair in the bathroom, preferably while standing in a dry shower, so you can rinse away any mess after you’re finished. When blended together, henna has the texture of mud and can be difficult to apply. As a result, some usually spill on the floor and down your brow. Use a thick balm or lotion to establish a barrier on your skin before applying the henna dye. I use it to my brow, ears, and neck.
