Henna is a natural plant that has been used for centuries, from hair and fabric dyes to body art. Henna eyebrow dye is a semi-permanent dye that colors the skin under the eyebrows. This is one of the most popular ways to enhance your eyebrows because it is less harsh than other shaping procedures such as permanent makeup, threading and waxing. Henna lasts up to six weeks on the hair and up to two weeks on the skin. A variety of styles can also be achieved, from natural and soft to bold and dramatic.
What is the difference between normal eyebrow dyeing and Henna dyeing?
Conventional dyeing uses chemical eyebrow dyes to darken the eyebrows, while henna tinting uses vegetable dyes. In addition, henna can also stimulate the growth of eyebrow hairs and restore the natural shape of the eyebrows, which is not the case with conventional eyebrow tints.
Henna eyebrow dyeing process
1. Cleaning your eyebrows is the first and most important step, because henna can only stick to clean skin. Use eyebrow primer and shampoo.
2. The contour of the eyebrows is drawn with an eyebrow pencil. Contouring is a crucial step as it helps shape the brows.
3. Henna powder is mixed with special mineral water for henna tint, applied to the eyebrows and left to dry for 15-20 minutes. Sometimes a film is placed on the eyebrows to help the dye adhere.
4. When the henna dries, it is removed with a damp cotton pad. The eyebrows may look red or orange at this stage, but don't worry, this is completely normal. The color will eventually fade to a darker shade within 24-48 hours.
5. Depending on the desired effect, a second layer of henna can be applied. It helps darken the brows even more and make them look even fuller.
