The henna paste will take 10-20 minutes to dry.
After the paste dries, make sure the design remains uncovered.
Leave the paste on the skin for 4-8 hours or overnight for optimal stain.
The paste begins staining the skin right away.
It can be removed sooner if maximum staining is not necessary.
Tips for maximum stain~ steam the design/heat with blowdryer/dab a half lemon juice half sugar solution on the stain
When you are ready to remove the paste pick it off or use something to help scrap off the paste.
The stain on the skin will be a light to bright orange at first.
Rub of a vegetable based oil to protect the stain as there are still staining properties on the skin.
Over the next 24-48 hours the stain will darken to a variance of brown to dark burgundy color depending on how long the paste was on the skin, where the design was placed and skin chemistry.
To protect the skin after the paste has been removed, do not exfoliate the skin, dab lightly with a towel after washing the area.
The henna stain will last 1-3 week gradually fading during this time.
