Khadija’s Henna Body Art Recipe

Khadija’s Henna Body Art Recipe

Since 2005, I have been mixing henna for body art by hand and have tried many combinations of powders and ingredients. I love the process of tessting out new powders, formulations and playing in the henna “mud”. I now use a KitchenAid stand mixer to mix my henna and jagua body art recipes. I’ll be sharing with you in this blog my absolutely favorite henna recipe and steps I take to get a smooth, creamy and dark staining henna body art recipe for henna tattoos that will last 7-10 days. Essential ingredients: Fresh body art quality henna powder that is finely sifted (please read our article on the times needed for dye release). My current favorite body art quality henna powders are our Red Raj and Supreme Blend. Bottled lemon juice, warm water or tea brew. Personally I use 50/50 of distilled water and lemon juice. 100% pure essential oils, such as eucalyptus globulus, cajeput, or tea tree or lavender (also known as terps). My personal favorite is our Red Raj Bliss Blend EO. Sugar, preferably dextrose or fructose. I currently use fructose or raw sugar. Those on the west coast might enjoy trying molasses for a more “wet” consistency for the dry air there. Measuring the henna powder. Take 2 tbsp of henna powder (about 25 grams of henna) and place it into a glass or stainless steel bowl. Add 1 tsp of sugar of your choice and mix well. Adding the lemon juice/water/tea brew. Heat your liquid (about 1/4 cup) on the stove and add it slowly to your henna powder. Mix well until it is the...

Beautifully Sexy Henna Belly for Curly Nikki

Beautifully Sexy Henna Belly for Curly Nikki

Curly Nikki, her hubby and little Gia are awaiting a new arrival ❤️ I had the honor of henna’ing Nikki’s belly not only once but twice (three times a charm?! hint, hint). Thank you so much Nikki for having me adorn that beautiful baby to be. Photography credits to myself, Khadija. Have you heard of Curly Nikki or seen her on her instagram page @curlynikki or seen her on TV such as on Dr. Oz’s show? She’s a pioneer in the natural hair community sharing her expertise and her own personal experiences. She was also on on Good Morning Washington this morning discussing winter hair care and styles. Did you happen to watch her on the show? Gia is so excited about their new arrival coming in just a few short months. So exciting having a little brother! She also did so amazing getting her henna done. She sat very still and took very good care of her design. We both agreed we wanted it to come out as “red” as possible and last a really long time. She is such a bundle of creativity and she says the cutest things....

How to Mix Henna for Hair Dye

You’ve chosen the Right Henna Powder for you and your hair and are ready to mix your henna powder into a paste to naturally color your hair and cover greys. How to choose the right henna powder Measure out the right amount of henna powder needed for your hair, place the powder into a stainless steel (or glass) bowl. How much henna and Ayurvedic herbs to use on your hair? By slowly adding in your liquid of choice, mix your henna paste into a thick mud. Tip: If you’re henna paste gets too runny you can add more powder to thicken it back up. How Liquids Affect Your Henna Recipe Once mixed thoroughly allow your henna powder to sit for 3-4 hours (or 1-2 hours if using Moroccan henna) to allow for dye release. Dye Release: How much time is needed?   Once dye release has been achieved your henna paste is ready to use and be applied to your hair.
