Henna is a shrub that grows naturally in Africa and Asia. These benefits are known to coat the hair and strengthen it . But, could this plant also be beneficial for our eyebrows ? Discover the benefits of henna for eyebrows and how to use it properly.

What is eyebrow henna?

Henna for eyebrows is a plant-based eyebrow coloring , which attaches both to your hair and to your skin. This is why it is particularly effective in giving the illusion of fuller eyebrows . Its action colors your hair by attaching to the outside of your hair fibers and hairs , like most plant-based dyes, and not by attaching to the inside as is the case for chemical dyes.

Henna for eyebrows: for whom?

This type of henna is particularly suitable for people who have sensitive skin and who cannot tolerate chemical dyes . This plant-based coloring gives very good results in particular with people who have fairly full eyebrows , and who use it mainly to intensify their natural eyebrow color . It is therefore a good alternative to permanent makeup .

Indeed, for people with very sparse eyebrows , eyebrow henna will not necessarily be very effective, because its tint attaches mainly to the hairs of your eyebrows and less to your skin. This means that after just a few days, a change in color may already be visible. And, you will certainly have to correct your eyebrows with pencil for a more harmonious result.

How to use henna for eyebrows?

Steps to tinting your eyebrows with henna

Here are the steps to follow for guaranteed results:

Shampoo and preliminary scrub of your eyebrows

To make the henna stick better to your skin, shampoo your eyebrows and lightly exfoliate to remove any leftover makeup and remove dead skin.

Prepare the henna paste

Read the instructions for your eyebrow henna kit carefully, in order to use the right proportions of powder and water . Put the indicated amount of powder in a container. Then, add the corresponding quantity of water and mix until you obtain a homogeneous and smooth paste. The thicker it is, the stronger and more intense the color will be . It's up to you to judge according to the desired end result.

Apply henna to your eyebrows

Using a fine brush, apply henna to your eyebrows . You can use a cotton swab to fine-tune the details and correct your outline.

The exposure time

Let your henna dry for at least 10 minutes , or more, depending on the type of product used. Namely, the longer the exposure time, the more likely the color will be accentuated.

Final step: removing henna from your eyebrows

Finally, once the application time has elapsed, lightly moisten a cotton pad and gently remove the henna from your eyebrows until it is completely removed.

What interests and advantages does henna for eyebrows offer?

Henna for eyebrows offers many advantages , both in terms of its more natural appearance and its final result which remains visible over time.

A sustainable solution

Eyebrow henna may be visible for 2 to 4 weeks on your eyebrow area. This duration also depends on your skin type. Note that on more fragile skin, henna may be less effective, because the skin tends to develop scales and eliminate henna from the epidermis more quickly.

Many shades available
