How long does a henna design last?

Henna designs done in real, natural henna can last anywhere from 4 days to 3 weeks, depending upon where on the body they are done, and how well the after-care instructions were followed. Henna stains the top few layers of skin cells and fades gradually with natural skin exfoliation over the course of 1-3 weeks.



What is white henna?

White henna is not even henna! These days a lot of pictures of henna designs done in white are trending on social media. It is merely white body paint. It doesn’t stain the skin like real henna, neither does it last for 1-3 weeks like henna does. It stays raised on the skin, gets dirty after a couple of hours and starts rubbing off. White body paint looks nice for photoshoots but is not a practical form of body art to wear for daily activities.





What is black henna?

'Black henna' is not real henna. It is a chemical called PPD, which is found in hair dyes. Some people use this black hair dye on skin and call it ‘black henna’. Since real henna is made from the leaves of the henna plant, and naturally stains a reddish brown, there is no way for it to give a black stain. Black ‘henna’ is a very dangerous product. It can cause rashes, itches, burns, permanent scars, and liver damage among other things. It is unfortunately quite widely used in tourist spots on unsuspecting customers. Beware of black!


What is instant henna?

Henna is not ‘instant’. It requires patience and care to get great results from real henna. Anything labeled as henna that promises to give instant dark stains in just a few minutes is filled with artificial dyes and chemicals not meant for use on skin.
