Henna is a beautiful and completely organic temporary tattoo like stain that dyes layers of your skin for several weeks.
A completely painless, pleasant and relaxing process. Dried henna leaves are mixed into a paste and applied with a piping bag system (like icing a cake). The skin absorbs the moisture out of the paste leaving it dry and cracky. At this point, the paste can be picked off (do not wash - water will interrupt the staining process within first 12 hours) Re-moisten with a lemon/sugar mixture and/or covered with a micro-pore medical tape to secure your paste for longer absorbency. The longer your skin has to absorb the stain from the paste, the longer your stain will last.
Once the paste has been removed, stain starts out an orange color (skin tone depending) and gradually darkens to it's maximum potential over 48 hours to warm browns. Maintaining your dyed layers of skin ensures duration of your design. Keep moisturized and avoid exfoliation. Stain can last anywhere from 5 days to 2.5 weeks.
Most images show the Henna paste still on the skin - the blacker it looks, the dryer it is. Once the paste is removed, Henna stains should always be brown/red scale.
