Henna brows have made huge advances in recent years. And there are more and more brands on the market that focus on henna. We are active in Brazil since 2006 and we developed a great brow henna product especially for the professional brow stylist. To make the most flawless, natural brows: read this Henna Brow guide and everything you need to know about the product.
What Is Brow Henna?
Brow henna is a product based on Indian henna. Color pigments have been added to give the henna a beautiful light to dark brown color. If you work with pure henna, you will eventually get a reddish print on the skin. That is, for example, the result with traditional henna decorations in many Eastern countries. In addition, the color pigments ensure that the henna draws into the skin more quickly. So you do not have to wait for hours, as is the case with pure henna. Brow henna is therefore never pure nature, which some brands also claim. Our formula consists of 97% Lawsonia Inermis Extract.
How long henna brows last
As we said earlier, brow henna stains the skin for seven to fourteen days. How long this will be exactly, depends on a number of factors. The result usually disappears faster on an oily skin. Just like make-up disappears earlier from an oily skin. But also when you use a lot of cleaning products, the effect fades earlier. How long you enjoy it, therefore, differs per person. Because of this, never make a promise as an eyebrow specialist. But let your customer know that it depends on the experience of her first time. An advice to enjoy it for as long as possible is to clean the eyebrows as little as possible and to wet them.

Step 1: Patch test
Just like normal eyebrow and hair dye, people can be allergic to eyebrow henna. Therefore always do a patch test if a customer wants a henna treatment for the first time. Put a speck of henna on her arm, let it retract and remove after 15 minutes. If the customer does not have an allergic reaction within 48 hours, you can use our Henna careless next time. It is handy to ask your client if she wants to visit a few days before her first treatment.
