4 ways to make your bridal henna darker and long lasting


Every bride's dream is to get a henna stain for her wedding. Some people also say the darker the henna stain the more the husband will love the bride. While there is no validity to this myth every bride sure wants the henna on their palms and feet to look the best on their special day. And why not? It is a once in a lifetime occasion for the bride and they have every right to look gorgeous and steal the show. So what is it that you need to do to get that deep henna stain?

Here are a few tips that we found out that actually work! Try them a few weeks before the D-day to be sure that they work on you.

  1. Leave them for a longer time

Wash off henna after 6-7 hours and if you can afford to keep longer then go for more hours. Instead of washing with water scrape the henna by rubbing your palms together till the dried henna falls off. Washing the henna will just fade the stain!

  1. Dab lemon juice couple of times

Add drops of lemon juice to your dried henna for a couple of times. The lemon juice acts as a catalyst for dye release and deep penetration of color.

  1. Run your hands over the fumes of the cloves

Try ‘heat’ for a splendid and rich penetration of the henna design. First, apply lemon juice mentioned above. Now heat a few cloves over a pan and run your hands over the fumes of the cloves. Let the fumes dry up the lemon juice.

  1. Apply coconut oil after scrapping the crust

After you have scraped off the dried henna, apply some coconut oil on your palms or feet. Coconut oil moisturizes the skin and helps the stain last for a longer time.
