Lemon Juice VS Water

Lemon Juice VS Water

Have you chosen your henna powder but unsure about wether to use water or lemon juice? There are pros and cons to using either one. I can remember when I first started doing henna for my hair and my mix always consisted of water and a splash of lemon juice to boost the color. I’ve always liked keeping it simple. For my henna body art mixes I started off using lemon juice as I heard that most people used lemon juice. I never really thought of alternatives as I was still learning but I do believe in experimenting and trying things out. I believe that we all have to find out what works best for us. It happens that what might work for one person might not work for another. My henna for hair recipe is pretty much still the same for my personal use but it’s very intriguing to see the different liquids that clients choose. With henna body art the choices are a little bit the same overall. There isn’t as much variety. Henna For Hair Often times clients first come across blogs, vlogs and instructions for mixing their henna with lemon juice. A few things about using lemon juice in your hair recipes: very acidic it can be very drying this can cause hair breakage it makes the dye release take longer to release it can boost the color in henna A lot of the times when the information is found online it’s often out dated especially when it contains information about using lemon juice in your recipe for hair. Make sure everything you read it at...

The white wedding dress and henna. Do they go together?

The white wedding dress and henna. Do they go together?

Ever wondered what a beautiful white wedding dress would look like with henna? I’ve had the opportunity to do henna for several brides wearing white and trust me, it looks amazing. The balance of henna against white is just too stunning to deny. Mariah incorporated traditional henna into her wedding from her Trinidadian roots for her wedding day. In Trinidad it’s common for both Indian and Muslim communities to get henna done when they get married. It’s part of the beautification process that includes getting your hair and makeup done. Ideally getting the henna done at least 2 days before the wedding is best. Her henna came out beautiful and really dark. You may notice that Mariah has what looks like two tones of henna stain. There is henna and there is also jagua in her designs. Basically, two mediums were used to give her a two tone affect (which I personally am so loving right now). Henna will always stain a natural reddish brown whereas jagua paste (aka hengua) stains a black stain. Both are all natural and made by us at Henna Sooq. Mariah adds the final touches by placing gold anklets on. She’s beautifully flawless. Through an act of pure love, respect and humbleness, her husband gently pours warm water over her feet and gently washes them. This act is a symbol of unity, intimacy and the spiritual bond between husband and wife. So beautiful! So when you think of white wedding dresses, think of just how gorgeous henna looks on white.
