Stain Progression

Stain Progression

From left to right: Paste on, paste freshly removed, 24 hour stain, mature stain (~48-72 hours)

For the best results, leave your henna paste on your hand for at least 4 hours. Remove by scraping it off or using a natural oil (ie. olive, coconut oil, shea butter, etc.) to soften and scrape off stubborn bits. Your stain will initially be orange and darken over the next 24-48 hours.

Avoid water as much as possible during the stain development period. You can apply henna balm or any natural oil onto your henna stain before bathing. Swimming and hot tubs will significantly decrease the staining power of your henna.
