Did you leave your henna sit out overnight?

Do you consider yourself a long time henna user? Did you come across some great henna recipes on the internet that you really would love to try? Will this be your first time using henna? If you answered yes to any of those questions then this article is for you. There have been times when clients have come to us and told us that their henna didn’t work for them. They were very disappointed as the color didn’t come out as they expected and it barely stained when they did the skin patch test. The deal on dye release: Testing your henna paste for a more effective stain We can’t stress just how important it is to follow the exact instructions on the package of your product (or online at www.HennaSooq.com under the instruction and video tabs of each product’s page). There are a lot of blogs and YouTube channels that have hundreds of recommendations on how they use henna products and often you may be tempted to use the products exactly as they did. Perhaps you’ve been doing henna for so many years that you mix it exactly the same way you always have and it always came out perfectly. Times have changed. Not all henna powders (or brands) are created equally. You can try out recipes and tips from bloggers and vloggers but you will have to make sure you blend their methods with the instructions that are for the henna powder you’re using.

Mixing Jagua Juice to create a Black Henna Design

Mixing Jagua Juice to create a Black Henna Design

You may have heard about how bad black henna is. That it’s full of chemicals and can scar your skin for life.  It’s true. There are black henna cones and products on the market that can badly blister your skin. Before I started doing henna professionally, I went to a somalian wedding in Toronto. They recommended I get henna done as several other ladies were. So I decided to get my feet done for the wedding. Before I headed to the home of the henna artist they told me I had to go and buy some black henna dye which was really in fact black hair dye, Bigen. I had no idea how harmful this would be. My feet got henna’ed and they looked perfect. When my henna started to fade I began to notice raised, bumpy skin that I thought was athlete’s foot. Then the puffy skinstarted to resemble the henna design I’d had done, but how so? I had the henna done weeks ago? Could this really be an allergic reaction? Yes! It was an allergic reaction.
