How long do I need to leave the paste on for?

First time users should leave the paste on for 2 to 3 hours on the hair and 1.5 to 2 hours on the beard to ensure the best results. Once you are familiar with the results, you may shorten the time to see if it still gives the same color.

How long will the color last in my hair?

The color typically lasts about 6-8 weeks in the hair. This depends on the type of shampoo/conditioner you use and how frequently you use it. If your hair has been damaged from chemicals, this can also shorten the time the color stays in but the more you use the product, the longer it will begin to last as it will heal the damaged hair over time.

How long does the color last on my beard?

The color will last for about 7-10 days but we tend to find people will re apply within the 4-7 day mark just due to the new growth.

How long after I apply henna can I use it again on my hair?

Henna has no negative side effects and is very good for your hair so you can use it multiple times in the same day. It will only benefit your hair.

How frequently can I use the henna on my beard?

Most people can use henna on their face even every day if they wanted. Some people with a little more sensitive skin may start to dry out if it is used day after day but the color lasts at least 4 days on the facial hair so even those with the most sensitive skin should have no issues.

Can I use chemical hair dyes over the henna?

We recommend waiting about a month to use chemical dyes over henna as there are so many different products with various types of chemicals in them and its impossible for us to know if any of them may react with the henna. We do have some people that do highlights over henna without any issues though. If you were wanting to try to shorten this time, we would recommend a patch test as we do with any application just to be sure everything works out okay.

Can I use henna over chemical hair dyes?

We recommend waiting about a month to use henna over chemical dyes as there are so many different products with various types of chemicals in them and its impossible for us to know if any of them may react with the henna. After about a month, we would recommend starting with a patch test just to see how the color comes out over the chemical product. After that, if the color appears to be correct, you can go ahead with a full application.

Why did my hair turn red?

If your hair turned a red color when using a brown or black, it means that the henna ingredient was absorbed more so than the other ingredients. There are a few simple ways to correct this but each case is unique so we prefer you give us a call at 702-967-0755 or email us at help@hennaking.com so we can go over how to correct this based on your results.

Why did my hair turn blue/purple?

If your hair turned a blue/purple color, it means that the indigo ingredient was absorbed more so than the other ingredients.

Why did my hair turn green?

In 99% of cases, when your hair turns green, it is only for the first few hours after application before the final color sets into the hair and the henna completely oxidizes. Most of the time, we have people apply the paste in the evening so by the time they wake up, the henna will completely oxidize and you won't see that green color at all. You will want to give up to 48 hours to see this final color but most of the time it will show up even earlier and that green will be gone.

Do your hair dyes contain PPD’s or metallic salts?

No, our products are all natural with no PPD's or metallic salts. Many of our customers have switched over to us after developing allergies to the PPD's in the chemical products and are able to use our henna without any issues.

If I leave the paste out, how long until it goes bad?

You will want to follow the instructions and only leave it out for up to an hour at most. If you leave it out longer, the henna ingredient will continue to activate but the other ingredients will deactivate and you will be left with a stronger red tone.

What is the shelf life of the henna powder?

The henna will stay fresh as long as it is kept in a cool dry air tight storage away from the sunlight for 1-2 years.

What is the shelf life of henna cones?

Henna cones left out in a room temperature environment out of the sun will stay fresh for up to 3 months. You can extend this time by refrigerating the cones or freezing them which will keep them fresh for up to 6 months and 9 months respectively. Be sure to let them get back to room temperature before applying them again.

How do I use the transfer kit for design books?

Choose a design from the design book. With your transfer pen, trace the drawing on a piece of tracing paper. Now cut out the pattern from the page or tear out that sheet of tracing paper and wet the area of skin where you will be applying the design. Gently but firmly, place the paper pen side down onto the skin, and without smearing it, lift the paper off the skin. You should now have an outline of the design to follow. If there are no markings visible on the skin, you need to wet the skin more and reapply the design.

The color is bleeding out of my hair, how can I fix this?

If the color is bleeding out of your hair, this is typically due to your hair being damaged in some way. We mostly find that this happens to people who have used chemical dyes for a long time. Fortunately, henna is very good for the hair and will begin to heal and strengthen it over time which will result in less bleeding and a longer lasting color. If the bleeding persists, you can try a white vinegar rinse after rinsing out the henna which can help seal in the color.

I’ve used henna before and when I used that product, I was told to let it sit out for hours after mixing. Why don’t I have to let your product sit out?

Poor quality henna that is not finely ground like ours requires long wait times to allow the dye to release. Our product is very finely sifted and therefore there is more surface area that allows the dye to be release MUCH faster because there is more water surrounding each particle of henna dye. The finer the grind, the faster the dye will release. We recommend you follow our instructions and do not let it sit. If you are used to using lower quality henna in the past, and having to wait hours for the dye to release, you are going to love how much easier our product is to use and that you do not have to wait.

How to mix henna powder for tattoos?

Prep

Fresh Henna Powder, 100 grams or 1 Cup. Tea bags, 2-4. Bottled or fresh lemon juice, strained. Large Plastic or Glass Bowl for mixing. Measuring spoon/measuring cup. Sugar or Honey (optional). Essential Oils, 3-4 teaspoons. Large quart size plastic bag or large plastic bottle for storage. Applicator Bottle or Cone for applying the henna. Newspaper or old towels and paper towels for clean up. Saran wrap for hair. Plastic gloves.

Mix

For Skin: Place entire package of henna powder in a glass or ceramic bowl. Boil 2-3 cups of water, then add 2-4 tea bags, and let steep for 30 minutes or longer. You want the darkest brew possible. Add 2- 4 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice to the powder. While stirring, add the warm tea brew in a little at a time. Mix well and use enough brew so that the mixture is the same consistency as pancake batter. Add 2 teaspoons of an essential oil, and mix well. Cover with saran wrap and place the bowl onto the counter in a warm place. Let it sit for 12 hours. A brown film will appear on top of the paste as it cures. Mix the brown film into the paste. At this point, the paste is ready to be applied. Henna paste should be good for up to 3 months in the fridge.

How to apply tattoo paste?

Put on Latex Gloves. Before opening tube shake & massage vigorously so contents blend together 1-2 minutes. Attach the supplied white dispenser tip snip the end and squeeze contents of tube into the Jacquard applicator bottle or applicator bottle of your choice. Fill the applicator bottle 3/4 of the way, do not over fill. To start simply draw the design on the skin as if you were decorating a cake or applying “puffy paint.” Put the Henna Tattoo paste on very thick..... It takes a good amount of paste to dye the skin. If the Henna is very thick you can add a few drops of rubbing alcohol (not water). Mix this well using a toothpick then shake the bottle. When you apply henna to the skin it should be thin enough to spread ever so slightly but not too thin or it will run into the cracks of the skin. If your Henna is to thick it will clog the bottle and will not absorb into the skin once applied but rather lay on top of the skin which results in blotchy tattoos or poorly stained tattoos.

How do I care for my henna tattoo?

After applying the tattoo design, the paste will take approximately 15-30 minutes to dry to the touch. You should leave the paste on at least 30 minutes and may leave it on longer if you choose. Leaving the paste on longer helps produces a longer lasting stain! When completely dry, the Paste will not appear as raised (puffy) but will now have a dry crusty look and feel. Their are two ways to remove the colored Henna paste. You may CAREFULLY PICK the dry Henna off, preferably over a trash can so that you do not get the dry paste on yourself, clothing, or under your fingernails. Be careful not to get the dry paste on the ground as it will stain. You can also wash the paste off under running water it takes a few minutes to get all the paste off, however you must let the water do the work since if you rub the paste under water it may smear. So again, let the water do the work. Lightly pat the area dry. WHAT WILL REMAIN IS A BEAUTIFUL TATTOO STAIN!

How do I mantain my henna tattoo?

The Henna Tattoo will last from several days to two weeks. The Tattoo begins to fade slowly as your skin dries out and flakes away (exfoliates.) For a longer Tattoo life, keep your skin moisturized with and lotion or oil. Do not scrub your Tattoo! Chlorine is your tattoos enemy so when swimming or bathing use Vaseline or Chap stick to protect your tattoo from drying out. So remember to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize...Enjoy!

Are there any tips for applying tattoo paste?

  • The harder you squeeze the Applicator bottle the thicker your line will be.
  • If paste is too thick to flow freely add a drop or two of Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol.
  • Use a pin to unclog metal applicator tip and keep the pin in the tip when not in use.
  • If paste is too thin open tube and discard a small amount of liquid dye (drain off) If paste is still too thin, place in refrigerator overnight.
  • Shake Applicator Bottle between use to keep contents blended together.
  • Don't let the metal tip touch the skin...This will produce light spots and an uneven looking design.
  • Do not move the paste around once you apply it to the skin leave it alone.
  • To keep your Tattoo alive, you can keep touching it up as it begins to fade.
  • Shelf life of Paste is approximately 1 to 2 years...You may refrigerate to extend shelf life of paste.
  • Keep cap on the tube and bottle when not in use so the paste will not dry up.
