Henna In Calgary

Henna is a beautiful, traditional Indian dye primarily made from the Lawsonia plant. Leaves are dried and ground into a powder before being mixed with lemon juice, and essetial oil (either lavendar, ecaluptus The paste is applied to the skin in any pattern you choose. (Bring in a picture for our artist to replicate if you have something specific in mind). The paste then flakes off as it dries leaving the skin underneath stained. The stain will darken over the course of the next two to three days and slowly fade after two weeks.

Want your beautiful henna piece to last longer? Henna fades as the skin naturally sheds and exfoliates, so keeping the skin hydrated with lotion or oil will help the pattern last longer. Putting lotion on before showering or swimming will also act as a barrier from the water. Your design will also last longer on certain parts of the body than others. The back of the hands often fade faster than the palms because the skin dries out faster and therefore washes off more quickly, whereas the skin on the palms of the hands is a different thickness and absorbs the henna better when the paste is first applied. Clothing that regularly rubs against you will cause the skin, and consequently the henna, to rub off as well. Placement is key.

Our prices vary on either area of the body or per design, and per the complexity of the design. Be sure to take into account added time for your henna paste to dry before you leave to prevent smearing. If you’re not sure which price your desired design falls into, email us a picture and we would be happy to get back to you.
