· The hotter you
are, the darker the mehndi colour comes out on the skin. The
old wives tale goes “The darker the colour the more
your husband loves you!”
We at Mehndi Creations,
specialise in making top quality, fresh, natural mehndi paste to guarantee the
rich bridal colour it will give to all brides.
Excessive washing and lotions may affect the colour of the mehndi.
· Once mehndi is applied on the skin, it may
be left overnight or left on for at-least 4
hours to enhance the deepness in colour.
· The mehndi can be scraped of with a
payment card or an unsharp butter knife.
· The mehndi on the skin should not be
covered with a plastic bag or gloves as it will result in
condensation from sweating and therefore loose the
definition in design.
· Lemon Juice & sugar syrup can be applied
with cotton wool on to the mehndi once it is dried.
This will secure the mehndi onto the skin more and
therefore, result in the darkness of the colour on the skin.
Application may be repeated, if mehndi feels dry and hard.
· The colour on the skin will darken on the
day after the mehndi has been applied. The darkness
in colour will last for a few days and will fade away.
· The mehndi powder can be a khaki, green
or dark brown colour depending on where it comes
from. It usually develops into a chocolate brown
colour when applied as a paste onto the skin. Fresh mehndi
powder will produce a strong dark brown colour
and will last longer. Stale mehndi will produce
a light orange colour, which will not get darker
· The use of black “henna” should
be avoided as it contains a dangerous
chemical called Para-phenylenediamine (PPD) found
in hair dyes which causes skin irritations.
· Brides should
have manicures, pedicures & waxing done before mehndi is
applied on them as otherwise
the mehndi will be waxed off with the hair!
· To beautify your
mehndi for mehndi nights, wedding or receptions, body glitter
and gems in different colours can be applied on the skin to
match the outfits. Mehndi Creations specializes
in all types of glitter work.
