PLEASE NOTE:

Results of Henna Application may vary due to...

  • Oily Skin - Oil will break down the Henna
  • Dry Skin - Faster rate of skin exfoliation
  • Not following the Aftercare




AFTERCARE ADVICE
  • Do not use strong eye make-up removers for 48 hours as they may strip the colour – Please note that oil based make up remover can cause the henna stain to fade faster
  • Do not rub, pull or pick at the area treated.
  • Do not allow shampoo or conditioner to on the brows for the first 24 hours.
  • You will want to go easy with your eyebrows when cleansing to extend the life of the stain on the skin. Obviously, if you scrub, peel etc at that area, the stain behind the brow is going to disappear much faster. Also exercise caution when applying any type of skin care products containing exfoliators (topical acne medications, retinol, lightening products, alpha hydroxy acids, etc) Keep all these away from the brows as they will strip them of their colour.
  • Avoid heat treatments/facials that involve steaming for 24 hours.
  • Avoid sunbathing for 24 hours, as this can cause the henna to fade or lighten
  • Avoid swimming/saunas for at least 24 hours after your treatment.
  • Exposure to the sun/UV lights for long periods can cause the henna stain to fade quicker.
  • If any irritation occurs, apply a clean cold wet pad to the eye area or contact a doctor.
