Henna tattoos designs are basically the application of plant extract of Henna as a temporary tattoo to decorate the skin in India as well as in several Asian countries. The application of natural Henna on the skin is healthy and that the dye penetrates only the outermost layers of the skin, but the process takes some time. That is why we have developed a strong interest in a dangerous product known as “Black Henna”. This product should not be confused with natural henna. The henna is not black. Any product ringworm skin black in less than 20 minutes is not natural or healthy. This chemical is used to dye hair, and is not approved for use on the skin. The black henna can produce blisters, severe allergic reactions, scarring and damage long-term health of people. Never use any product that is labeled as “Black Henna”. If the product proves leaf powder of indigo (indigo powdered leaf), which is sometimes marketed as black henna tattoo will be ineffective adopting a pale bluish gray.
Fresh henna powder can be achieved in health food stores or in most Asian markets. You must prepare a paste before application. The color is not fixed ka same way in all areas of the body. It penetrates better in the palms and backs of the hands, feet, abdomen and the inner area of the arms. Once the dough is fixed to the skin, takes 15 to 30 minutes to dry to the touch. The longer you leave it on the skin; the final henna tattoos designs will be more durable. At the end of the pasta (and dry) is removed by scraping the surface.
Natural henna takes time to darken, so for optimal effect it is recommended to apply two days before the time that you want to use. To ensure that the tattoo looks shiny for several weeks is recommended: Do not use lotions or sunscreen at least 24 hours before applying henna. The henna must stay at least 6 hours before removing. A period of 12 hours is even better. Some people leave it overnight. If you are applying henna on their hands, should not rinse with water or use it for drying. Someone have to help you make any effort while the henna tattoos designs dried.
