How toHow To Get A Dark Henna Stain
8 steps
Wet henna will dry in about 15 - 20 minutes.
1
Once dry, seal your henna in gauze or medical tape to avoid flake offs.
2
Or alternatively, you can spray lemon sealant (2 parts lemon + 1 part sugar) instead of the gauze.
3
Keep henna paste on for a minimum of 6 hours (overnight preferable).
4
Once time is up, chip henna off with a blunt knife or credit card (DO NOT WASH OFF WITH WATER!).
5
Apply balm (or coconut oil) on your fresh stain - which should be an orange color at this point.
6
After 30 mins, boil some water & apply your design on top of the steam (maintain a safe distance).
7
Your stain will peak and mature after 36 - 48 hours.
