Meet the Maker | Inside Scoop

Meet the Maker | Inside Scoop

I have been having a ton of fun taking part in March’s Meet the Maker. I found out about it from a fellow henna artist on her IG feed @alchemyhenna and she’s also a client of ours here at Henna Sooq. Joanne Walker founded the idea and has all the details laid out on her IG @joannehawker. We’re now half way through the month of March (almost!) and I’ve share behind the scene photos, along with really opening up about the brand, the vision and my life. It came at exactly the right time. This is therapy I don’t have to pay for 🙂 Here are a few posts that you told us were your favorites. For more, head to our IG page @hennasooq Day 8 | Where did Henna Sooq journey from and to? Back in 2005, I took a henna workshop with a well known artist in Montreal (where I’m originally from) and I was completely hooked. Starting out with some henna cones and 50 boxes of Jamila henna, Henna Sooq was born. In 2008, we moved to Toronto which was even more of a henna hub. I was busy with indian weddings, festivals and my first wholesale account @honey_fig . Sadly we had to move back to the USA in 2010, leaving behind our Canadian friends, family, our first house and many clients. I miss the days when they picked up your composting. So we make the big move back to Maryland, which I do really love and we’ve been here ever since. Maryland is fun, diverse, artistic, hip and full of my favorites creatives. Day...

New retailers in Texas and Georgia

New retailers in Texas and Georgia

We would like to welcome two new retailers of our henna for hair and ayurvedic hair care products. In Texas, at Ann’s Beauty Spot they carry Henna Sooq products along with a wide range of beauty supplies. They are your black-owned beauty supply store. You can visit their shop at: 8710 Grand Mission Blvd, Richmond, TX 77407 or by calling them at 832-759-5505. You can also visit them online on their Facebook Page or on their Instagram @annsbeautyspot. Out in Georgia, we welcome Kinks and Curls as our latest retailer. They are Atlanta’s premier natural hair boutique. “All of our products are specifically created for naturally kinky/curly hair, but are just as effective on chemically altered textures and those looking to transition. Come experience our welcoming and chic atmosphere quite different from the traditional beauty supply store. “Big Chopped” or transitioning, we will support you through your natural hair journey. While a great hair stylist is certainly an asset to any hair regimen, the foundation of healthy hair begins at home. We want to help you take a proactive approach to your hair care. The brands we offer are specifically designed for naturally kinky or curly hair, braids and locs. It is not our desire to send you home with a bag of products, we want to ensure you have a solid fundamental understanding of your hair. We will then transform you into enthusiasts on how to achieve and maintain a healthy crown!” You can also visit them online on their website or on their Instagram @kinksandcurlsatl...

Indigo for Hair | Natural Hair Dye

Indigo for Hair | Natural Hair Dye

Indigo is a natural Ayurvedic plant-based dye (vegan) that is used with henna to color hair reddish brown, brown, dark brown and up to black tones.  It lasts 4-6 weeks and will cover greys. In this easy step by step video tutorial, I make the process of using indigo easy. Mixing indigo correctly is very important to the henna coloring process. When indigo isn’t mixed properly, your henna coloring treatment usually won’t give you those rich coloring results. Common Mistakes Indigo is mixed with a cold liquid. Indigo must be mixed with a warm to hot liquid. Indigo is mixed with liquids other then water. Do not use other liquids when mixing indigo. Indigo is mixed with a heavy liquid such as yogurt, conditioner etc…Indigo does not work at all when mixed with heavy liquids such as these. Indigo is mixed directly with the henna powder. Mixing henna powder and indigo powder together at the same time won’t work since both need separate times for dye release. Indigo paste sits out for too long. Dye release for indigo is only 20-30 minutes max. Indigo is used alone. If indigo doesn’t have henna in it’s process either as a previous and recent hair application or directly mixed with henna paste then the outcome is a green hue on the hair. No patch test was done. Please always verify that you aren’t allergic to henna, indigo or ayurvedic herbs before using them. Do a small skin patch test to be sure.  ...
