 Using Henna for Eyebrows

Are you thinking about coloring your brows with Henna?

Henna has been used around for so many years. It has been used differently for hair dye, makeup, body art, and more. A lot of people imagine henna powder with that old red coloring effect, but henna for eyebrows is specially formulated with organic ingredients to give an amazingly cool color tone to your eyebrows. 

Henna is a natural color that gives you a type of eyebrow tint that lasts for up to 6 weeks, and a tint on the skin that can last anywhere from 2-8 days. 

It's a fantastic way to color eyebrows as it also hydrates, conditions, and nourishes the hair and skin beneath. 

It's absolutely safe, organic, and the best alternative for eyebrow microblading.

How to use Henna for eyebrows?

Ever tried waxing or tinting your brows?

If yes, then you must have a fair idea of how the henna brows process works. Coloring your brows, to begin with, is all about cleansing and removing all the dirt and oils from your skin. This step is to ensure that your skin is hydrated, super clean, and ready for the process.

Are you ready to tint your eyebrows?

After you're done with cleaning your brows, you have to measure and shape them using an eyebrow stencil, which shapes up the brows more clearly and allows you to go ahead with the process. From here on, it becomes absolutely crucial that you take extreme care as you are about to make or break your eyebrow shape. 

You can use an eyebrow pencil to draw the outlines of your brows for sharply defining the areas for shaping your brows with henna with absolute clarity. You can also use Mina Charcoal Mapping Thread as it is specially made for the process, so is easier to use and gives more precise results.

Once you have drawn your outlines clearly, you are now ready for applying henna. This part of the process is delicate and needs utmost attention. The henna has to be applied in a way that it sits in between your eyebrow hairs to give that fuller effect to your brows, pushing onto the skin to ensure it properly sits. 

Once you are done with the application let it sit for around 15 to 25 mins. Wipe away the application once it's done with developing. Wax, tweeze, or thread away your brow edges to get that perfect high definition effect. 

Henna brows—its pros and cons

The Pros: 

  • Henna brow tints are filled with natural herbs that grow back your eyebrow hair fully filling up those bald patches.
  • It imparts a semi-permanent color with a tattoo effect on the skin below making it last longer than the eyebrow pencil lasting for up to 6 weeks, the tattoo lasting for up to 2 weeks.
  • It has no ammonia and no lead or any other harsh ingredients so it’s a great option for people who have sensitive skin.
  • Henna tints are smudge-proof and rain-proof so you don’t need to keep drawing your brows again and again. You just draw them once and forget them for weeks.
  • Henna brows tint gives your eyebrows that naturally fuller look with its sombre natural herb coloration to shape up even the scattered or over-plucked brows.

The Cons: 

  • You have to be extra careful with the area around your brows making them completely clean. The cleaner the area, the more long-lasting will be the skin stain under the brow hair.
  • If you have oily skin, the henna stain will last for a shorter amount of time.
  • The more natural hair you have, the better will be the henna brows tint result. People with very little or less brow hair will not be able to see a long-lasting, beautiful coloring effect.
  • If you're suffering from any skin problems such as dermatitis, psoriasis, or eczema, henna will last for less time on your skin, and if you have such conditions your dermatologist might suggest not to use them.
Do you want to tint your eyebrows?

Planned to tint your brows with henna? Or Still confused? Check out below the difference between a regular tint and a henna brows tint.

Regular eyebrow tint will only tint your brows and come full of chemicals that can adversely affect your brows resulting in giving you those bald patches you never had before. It is great for those who are very regular with changing their brow color and are happy with their brow shape. The chemicals give unnatural tints.

Henna brows last longer than the brow pencils almost up to 6 weeks and more depending upon the density of your eyebrow hair. Henna is safe, and has no ammonia and lead, thus can also be applied on the skin around which is great for giving better shape to your brows. 

It even fills up all the balding gaps with its spot tattoo effect that lasts for up to 2 weeks. Henna brows tints are smudge-proof and water-proof, so you don’t need to color your brows daily or multiple times a day.

Do you need a patch test before the final application?

Yes, absolutely!  Like you do a patch test before coloring your hair, the patch test is necessary before you apply henna on your brows. Patch test should be performed 48 hours before you apply henna for eyebrows, especially if you are allergic to vegetables or pollen. 

Henna brows tints are available online.
