floramarilla's henna by ArmouredRaven floramarilla's henna by ArmouredRaven
I did this on *floramarilla's back for Tribal Fest' It's me first large piece and it didn't turn out half bad. I *wish* I had an after photo of the henna stain, it was a DARK reddish-brown.

Oooo this is a silly question, I just had henna done, but is there anyway to get the stain darker? I had a little thing done once before and they had us put lemon juice on it?

Just asking. I'm in love with henna now!
Reply
:iconarmouredraven:
ArmouredRaven Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2007
Once it's on your skin? Not that I know of. Though lemon juice does help a liiiitle bit if used while the henna is still on your skin and immediately after removing it. To make it last better, wash that area as little as possible and don't use soap there if you can stand it. Don't exfoliate the area in any way. And make sure to keep it well moisturized using some kind of natural moisturizers like aloe or cocoa butter... those extend-your-tan after-sun moisturizers works great, as do the body butter tubs from the body shop.

Best way to get dark henna is to use a a good henna mixture. The stain will depend on both the henna used and your own skin type.
Yay for henna! :D

Thanks for the advice! I was always curious to see if there was some way you could get the stain to be very dark. Being so pale, the henna just didn't show up on my skin very well!
