So you might be looking for Wow Brows, brows that pop, brows that say, “Hello darling!”, but not everyone has ‘wolf genes’ that ensures you have a bushy unibrow of Instagram dreams, right? So, what we do every morning is fill them in with powder, pomade, pencil, style them with gels and waxes so they are fixed in place, no movement there sweetheart! But this takes time out of our already busy morning schedule. Frankly speaking, this could have been 15 minutes extra that could have been better spent catching up with our beauty sleep.
If you are looking for brows with a tad bit of umph, minus the morning brow routine, but you are still not ready for the commitment of permanent makeup, then Henna Brows is a great option.
What is Henna?
Henna is a natural dye derived from a henna tree. This dye has been used for thousands of years in Asia, Australia, and ancient Egypt for body art, dying hair as well as makeup. Our all-natural brow henna is specially formulated to cater to eyebrow tones and will tint the skin beneath the brow hairs creating an illusion of fullness. It will also tint the brow hairs.
So how long does it last?
Henna dye is semi-permanent but most importantly, the skin is not. We are constantly regenerating skin cells and releasing oils, paired with environmental factors means that the henna will shed as the skin does. With a 1-2 week skin tint retention, and a 4-6 weeks brow hair tint retention, Henna is the ideal brow treatment. With the other chemical eyebrow tints available like Refectocil and Godefroy, they do not color the skin, therefore henna gives a more ‘full brow’ look. How long the tint remains on the skin depends on your skin type and how you maintain the brows. For the optimal effect, we also exfoliate the skin on your brows to remove dead skin cells. If you have very oily skin then henna will not take very well and will not last as long as in someone with dry/ normal skin. The use of oil-based cosmetic products, peels, and face scrubs around the brow area is not recommended as this will shorten the lifespan of the brow tint. It is also important to keep the eyebrows dry for 24hours after your henna brow treatment.
Can anyone get Henna?
Unfortunately, not everyone can get Henna brows. It is specially not recommended if you are pregnant, have an allergy or are sensitive to hair dyes, if you have very blond eyebrows or are planning to spend a lot of time out in the sun.
Is it safe?
Our henna is naturally derived and contains EU approved ingredients. It is a safe and natural alternative to chemical tints and dyes, vegan friendly and free from peroxide activators. This makes it suitable for anyone with sensitive skin. We also always advise a skin patch test before your scheduled appointment.
