Henna Brows - The Very Latest In Amazing Eyebrows!
You’ve probably heard of henna tattooing, but are possibly thinking of the type of body art that temporarily stains your skin without the life-long commitment of a permanent tattoo.
Henna has been around since ancient Egyptian times, when it was used for multiple purposes such as dyeing hair, clothes, fabrics and for all kinds of body decorations. In the beauty arena it’s a fairly recent application. Nevertheless it’s used by millions of women for colouring their eyebrows. The base of brow henna is the henna plant, but there are pigments added that provide a brown colouring. There is a crucial difference though. Unlike henna used for body decoration, henna brow only takes about 20 minutes to set, as opposed to a few hours, making it a very attractive proposition.
How Do Henna Eyebrow Treatments Work?
In simple terms it’s a temporary eyebrow tattoo, but one that results in a natural, fuller brow. You simply mix the henna with water or rosewater to make a paste. It’s a safe and natural product which is gentle on the skin. It’s also vegan friendly and free from peroxide activators and chemicals such as ammonia or lead, making it a suitable option for anyone with sensitive skin. That’s a major benefit of Brow Henna. With other eyebrow dye products, such as Refectocil and Godefroy, oxidants are added to the powder to make the paint ready for use, which might not agree with all skin types.
With no side effects, henna can also be safely used on anyone who is allergic to hydrogen peroxide, or other products. So anyone concerned about the colour getting on their skin can stop worrying – there’s no risk of irritation. Henna treatments do work better on clean skin, so by vigorously scrubbing the eyebrows in advance, dead skin cells are removed and the henna dye does its job better. Therefore, it’s beneficial for customers’ to fully exfoliate the skin around their eyebrows before treatment. Eyebrow henna is highly pigmented, which is how it stains the skin. And with a choice of colours to choose from, you can not only have strong and well defined eyebrows that match your skin tone, but brow tinting that will last for up to seven weeks.
What Are The Main Benefits of Henna Brows?
You can't get around it anymore. Henna Brows are big news. Henna stains the skin beneath the eyebrow hairs. This casts a shadow or creates an illusion of depth and fullness in the area, visually filling in any small areas where hairs are either grey or non-existent. It’s also worth knowing that:
