The Answers You Need
For The Questions You Should Be Asking
what is in your henna?
If your not asking this question of every henna artist you see, you could be in for an unpleasant experience.
My henna is made in my kitchen using:
powdered henna leaves,lemon juice
lavender and cajaput essential oils
frankincense and geranium oils
Most artists in Florida use "ready cones" which are store-bought imported chemical filled cones. If the henna was not made by the artist, its potentially dangerous.
How do I care for my new henna design?
Let your henna dry,which can take 5-25 minutes depending on the humidity.
Wear your henna as long as you can! One hour is ok,but 4 hours is optimal.
Scrape off henna outdoors away from pets,do not wash off henna! Water inhibits the darkening process,so keep stain dry as long as your able.
Your new stain will be orange and light, and could take up to 3 days to get dark. This is natural!
Where do I get my henna done?
I take all my casual appointments to Starbucks on Collier pkwy . If we are doing specialty henna, that is done at your home.
If you want me to travel, hourly rate applies and there may be a 2 hour minimum depending on distance. Subscribe to emails and follow my Instagram because I announce when I am in your town doing henna locally!
Do you offer classes?
If you are subscribed to emails and follow my instagram, you will receive announcements of what I am teaching and when and where I will be. If you are interested in a private class with a few friends,we can arrange that too!
If you are an aspiring henna artist, please consider attending The Henna Society Conference happening every year in Connecticut in the beginning of November. Classes are given by rockstar artists on all kinds of subjects for all levels of learning. Valuable for newbies and pros alike!
I'M AWAY UNTIL WEDNESDAY NOV. 6TH
