5 Easy Steps To Getting Rich as a Henna Artist

5 Easy Steps To Getting Rich as a Henna Artist

Making a full time living as a henna artist is as easy as sticking to these 5 steps. I can guarantee that from my own professional experience you can have a full time business in the henna industry that can support you and your family. I highly recommend that to start if you do plan to work in the henna industry for the next five years, that you come up with a business plan and make sure all of your book keeping is in order from the start. Creatives (and most people in general) definitely don’t want to be scrambling around to find receipts, expenses and invoices at a later time when you could be spending those hours on making your henna business absolutely amazing! Use High Quality Henna Products For you stand out from the rest you have to use high quality henna products. Making your own henna paste is especially important. If you are really struggling to make your paste exactly right do watch out YouTube video tutorials here. You can also buy henna paste from a reliable supplier that you can trust such as Henna Sooq. You can explain to your client how harmful additives and chemicals are added to pre-made henna cones (paste) and that you as an artisan does not use those type of products in your business. Your freshly made henna paste will also be a marketing tool for you. You can explain to potential clients that you use a natural henna paste made with organic and all natural ingredients. You can also offer a henna paste lavender blend for children, pregnant women,...

How to Choose the Right Indigo Powder

How to Choose the Right Indigo Powder

Similarly to henna powders, indigo powders are not all created equally. There are some simple yet important differences between the indigo powders we carry at Henna Sooq. Indigo is an Ayurvedic herb that come marketplaces call “Black Henna” but it’s not henna at all. Indigo is it’s own plant also known as indigofera tinctoria. It’s used as a natural hair colorant used with henna powder to create reddish brown, brown and up to black tones and cover grey hairs. Naturally coloring your hair with henna and indigo will last 4-6 weeks. Your indigo powder should be fresh, finely sifted and contain no additives, chemicals nor PPD. It’s very important to never use indigo alone without first using henna or adding henna paste directly to your indigo paste. Should you use indigo paste by itself on your hair it will give you a greenish hue. Organic Indigo for Hair This indigo is best used to dye what would be considered easy to color hair strands and greys. Typically porous hair is considered easy to color as it easily absorbs dye. When hair is resistant it will be left without any color from the henna nor indigo or left only orange-reddish tinted from the henna with no visible deposit from the indigo. This indigo is organically certified and comes from the same organic farm we purchase and import most of our Indian Ayurvedic herbs from. We recommend using this indigo for creating those reddish brown to brown tones. Some clients can achieve dark brown to black tones but organic indigo doesn’t always work for this and our other indigo works better...
