Henna brows has made huge advances in recent years and there are more and more brands on the market that focus on henna. With Nakreze Mehndi, we work among other things with Brow Henna. This henna has been specially developed for the professional eyebrow specialist and for those at home. To do this as nicely as possible: here are Henna Brow step-by-step plan and everything you need to know about the product.
WHAT IS BROW HENNA?
Brow henna is a product based mainly from Rajasthan, India. Color pigments have been added to give the henna a beautiful light to dark brown color. Because 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. However, this has no PPD dye and no harmful chemicals. It works just as safe as any other microblading brow tinting high end brands out there.

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.

It is thought that you can create a whole new shape with eyebrow henna, but that is a misunderstanding. You can make eyebrows fuller, and fill up bald spots, but brow henna does not stain the skin when there is no hair. It may take a day or two, but after that, it will be gone. So, you have to have some eyebrow hairs of yourself to achieve a nice result. This does not detract from the fact that women often undergo a complete metamorphosis with eyebrow henna. Because the hairs become darker, the skin is coloured and the eyebrow looks much tighter. And that for five to a maximum of fourteen days! After that, the henna is removed from the skin, but it is still on the hairs.
HOW LONG IS BROW HENNA VISIBLE?
As we said earlier, brow henna stains the skin for five 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.
CLEANNESS ABOVE EVERYTHING
The cleaner the skin, the better the henna can penetrate the skin. By scrubbing the eyebrows in advance, you remove dead skin cells and the dye can do its job better. Therefore, it is useful to ask if the customer wants to scrub her skin the evening or morning before the treatment.
HENNA BROW GUIDE
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 you do not have an allergic reaction within 48 hours, you can use Nakreze Brow Henna careless next time.
STEP 2: SHAPING FIRST
With Nakreze Brow Henna you can create super-tight brows. But only when the eyebrows are well depilated of course. Thread or wax the brows first. Use soft pearl or golden wax can be applied with a spatula. You do not have to use strips, because you can remove the wax easily when it is hardened. Therefore, you can lay it flat against the eyebrow. For the tightest results.
STEP 3: CHOOSE THE COLOR
Nakreze Brow Henna is available in 2 shades, from light brown and dark brown. Take a good look at which color suits you, and you can discuss with Leena Nawabi, the founder of this product if you are unsure. It is difficult to determine exactly in advance how a color will develop. This is dependent on skin type. For that reason, it’s better not to go too dark the first time. Repeat the process rather than having your eyebrows too dark. You can slightly soften the color with cleansing or exfoliating. But remember that Brow Henna has just been developed for a long-lasting result, so you do not brush it off easily.
- LIGHT BROWN – dark asblond / brown, cooler and darker. Perfect for medium skin and blonde to dark-blonde brows.
- DARK BROWN – an intense cool color. Especially for the tinted to dark skin tone and anyone who loves dark eyebrows!
STEP 4: BLEND
Mix one scoop of henna powder with 20-25 drops of sterile water. Mix until an evenly and smooth substance has formed. Let the paste for a few minutes to thicken. The henna paste should not be too fluid if you apply it! If you do this, there is a chance that the color will turn yellowish green.
STEP 5: CLEANSE THE SKIN
Make the eyebrows oil-free with a wet cotton pad. The cleaner the skin the better the henna will stay on the skin. Then dry the skin well.
6: APPLYING BROW HENNA
Apply the henna with an angled brush. The Nakreze Brow Henna Kit contains a perfect eyebrow brush. Or use an angle brush. Stamp and press the henna into the skin and make sure the henna is evenly on the skin. Start at the last part of the eyebrows, and work forward. Make sure the entire eyebrow is covered with a thick layer of henna paste. All skin must be covered.
STEP 7: CORRECT
By applying Brow Henna with a slanted brush, you can work extremely precisely. Remove small irregularities with a cotton swab with tint remover. Finally, tighten the eyebrow with a cotton swab with a tint remover or water.
STEP 8: DEVELOP TIME
The best result is achieved when the brow henna retracts for at least 20 minutes. The longer the paint absorbs, the deeper it penetrates into the skin and the longer it lasts. Are you afraid that eyebrows become too intense? Take a light color and stick to the contact time, instead of letting a darker color retract longer. In the latter case, your customer will enjoy it for a shorter time.
STEP 9: REMOVING THE FRONT PART
The most beautiful eyebrow is an eyebrow with an ombre effect. Whether it is applying make-up, permanent make-up or eyebrow henna. In other words, the eyebrow goes from light to dark. That is why you remove the attack earlier. After 5 to 10 minutes. Use a damp, not too wet cotton pad, with plain water.
STEP 1O: REMOVE THE REST OF THE HENNA
After another 15 to 20 minutes, you can remove the rest of the brow henna. Result: a beautiful henna layer on the skin.
