Since we’ve already entered the holiday season, aren’t we excited for everything anymore? Naturally. Starting with Navratri, several festivals come our way, including Karwa Chauth, and as we call the name, something immediately comes to mind: Henna. As they say, “The darker the Henna, the deeper the love between you and your partner.”
Well, it may sound cliche, but it is what it is. And if you’re wondering how to get the dark Henna this holiday season, we’re here to help. Follow these tips and thank us later!
Use sugar and lemon
The henna on the hands eventually dries up and starts to peel off, resulting in not-so-dark Henna. In this case, mix lemon juice and sugar and apply this with cotton wool on the Henna on the hands and feet. Not only will your mehndi stick to your hands longer, but it also enhances the color.
You can also use cloves to darken the henna stain. To do this, fry 3-4 cloves and crush them. Now mix it through your regular Henna paste.
Apply mustard oil
Most women wash their hands with water to get rid of the henna. But to darken the henna, it is better to remove it with mustard oil. To do this, apply mustard oil to the hands and slowly remove the Henna. On the other hand, you can also use eucalyptus oil instead of mustard oil.
Try to avoid water
After applying Henna, try to keep your hands away from water. Do not touch the water for at least 5-6 hours as this will lighten the color. The one common mistake all women make is washing their hands to get rid of it, but what they can do is rub it or scrape all the Henna.
