FAQ - HENNA TINTS
WHAT IS HENNA?
Henna is made from the shrub "Lawsinia Inermis" which grows in hot climates. The leaves of this shrub are dried and ground into powder, forming Henna. Henna has been used worldwide for thousands of years as a natural dye for clothing, hair, makeup and art. This is a pure, natural product which stains both the skin and hair. Henna dyes, do not affect or modify the structure of the hair and are in fact good for the brow. It contains no animal product, its vegan friendly and has not been tested on animals.
WHAT IS BROW HENNA?
Brow Henna is the future of colouring brows & it's long lasting natural dye (without the harsh chemicals) remains on the skin underneath the brows for up to 2 weeks and stays on the hair for 4-6 weeks. Brow Henna is a solution for clients wanting their brows to remain darker than their natural brow hair colour for the same amount of time that their shaping lasts. It is also a great solution for clients wanting to achieve a more filled-in look without having to use makeup or a brow pencil. Brow Henna also effectively yields a beautiful powder-like 3D finish. It covers grey brow hairs and comes in a variety of different shades
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO AT HOME TO PROLONG MY HENNA COLOR?
The most important factor in extending the longevity of brow tint and Brow Henna is to not get the brow area wet for 24 hours after application. Also, exercising caution when applying any type of skin care products containing exfoliators (topical acne medications, retinol, lightening products, alpha hydroxy acids, benzol peroxide, salicylic acid, glycolic acid etc.) Keep all of these away from your brows as they will strip them of their color and could harm the hair as well.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRADITIONAL TINT & BROW HENNA?
Brow Tint uses a similar dye that Hair Stylists use. The tint is mixed with a low percentage of hydrogen peroxide (3%) and then applied to the brows for 1-5 minutes and lasts on the hair for 2-4 weeks.Brow Henna is a specially formulated Henna mixture made specifically for eyebrows. The powder is mixed with a specially formulated mineral solution and then applied to the brows for 10-20 minutes. Brow Henna lasts on the brow hair for 4-6 weeks, and on the skin underneath the brow hair for up to 2-weeks!If you have very light eyebrows, or do not normally wear a lot of brow makeup, we recommend starting with brow tinting. If you are used to a more filled-in and defined brow, are looking for a longer lasting solution, have stubborn grey brow hairs, or are looking to camouflage gaps or sparse brow hair, we recommend booking a Brow Henna service.
CAN ANYONE USE HENNA?
Most people can use Henna, providing they don't have an allergy to it. Oily skin doesn't absorb Henna as well as normal or dry skin, so results may be a bit different than as stated. The oil tends to push the Henna out of the skin. This product is not suitable for lashes, just brow hair.
DOES BROW HENNA LOOK LIKE REGULAR HENNA?
No. Brow Henna has colors added to help match the color of your natural hair. Though it comes in a vast range of brown colors, for blondes especially they may want to consult the technician first if they are desiring a softer color like traditional tints.
