In the Fields of Moroccan Henna

In the Fields of Moroccan Henna

Morocco. A place of henna, beauty, delicious food and mint tea. Sigh! This beautiful plant is the henna shrub. This is the very first henna powder I was ever introduced to. I must have been only about 18 years old and decided to try henna for hair using this luscious henna powder. In Montreal there is a huge Moroccan community and you can get so many wonderful Moroccan treasures there. I recall being so confused about why they wouldn’t need time to mix the henna and allow it to sit for long periods of time. I came to learn that Moroccan henna needs a short dye release time and then can be used. It’s unique fresh scent always gives it away from the other henna powders. I can’t wait for our new Moroccan henna batch to arrive in just a few weeks ❤️ Have you ever tried Moroccan henna? How did you use it? In the fields of fresh Moroccan henna plants 🌱 we at Henna Sooq and our clients await the new batch of Moroccan henna that will be arriving soon. Hand sifted by the women’s cooperative in Morocco (and triple checked). The smell and freshness of this henna powder has always been so uplifting. Moroccan henna naturally colors the hair a gorgeous copper tone and with indigo easily creating brown to black tones (yes this will cover greys). For body art henna designs this henna will be ready quickly and leaves gorgeous rich copper-burgundy stains on the skin lasting 7-10 days. We will have this back in stock in 3-4 weeks (ETA 11/10/16). Stay tuned for our...

Rising and Taking Back Who You Are

Rising and Taking Back Who You Are

Did you know that some time over a year or so ago I wanted to quit and be done with Henna Sooq? I was stuck in a place where I didn’t know where to turn to or what to do. I had lost myself. I had completely given up on myself and this company. I felt so depressed and didn’t like what I was doing anymore. Something and someone was eating at my very being. I wondered how could I even move past this? Henna Sooq is a huge part of who I am and a reflection of myself, my dreams and passion. At the same time it’s a business. Just a company. Henna Sooq isn’t a human being. There should be clear lines separating business and personal life. Part of my own problem I realized was that since I didn’t clearly draw that line that others would easily step over it. I had to decide if I wanted to quit or if I wanted to reclaim who I was and take back Henna Sooq. I decide to stay and reclaim it. To Love Yourself I had to learn to be me. I had to stop being like everyone else. I realized I was and am talented just the way I am.  I started to focus on my own talents and maximize on them. I want to thank Instagram and the community for being a huge part of the rekindling of my henna passion. I found a piece of me that had been lost. A wandering soul trying to find it’s place and purpose. No one can ever take...
