Henna brows is the super popular treatment of 2019 that should not be missing on the menu of your salon. However using henna tinting requires some skills. Therefore were getting often questions about it. Like, why does the Henna not stay on the skin or How is it possible that sometimes a greenish glow can be seen? The five most frequently asked questions and answers. So you can perform the treatment even better and more efficiently. 5x henna brow tips & tricks.
1 Preparing henna with hot water
Usually you prepare brow henna with regular water. Sometimes it may occur that the pigments in the henna doesn’t dissolve immediately. Our tip: mix Dyotics Brow Henna with hot water. This ensures that the henna dissolves immediately and creates a soft substance. The henna also develops from a smooth substance with a somewhat green tinge to a beautiful brown shade. Therefore you can start your treatment immediately! When you mix the henna with cold water, you have to at least let it set for about five minutes.
2 Mix & match
Brow henna is available in various shades, from blonde to black. You can mix all Dyotics colors together, just like Supercilium colors. So you can do a bit of Raven and mix it with Ash Brown, to make the color just a bit more intense. Or make Taupe a little lighter and warmer with Honey. Just get started and put your own colors together.
3 Brow mapping
In the Dyotics starter kit you’ll find Brow mapping thread. A functional tool to make razor sharp henna brows. But how to use the brow mapping thread? With the pigmented thread you can make straight lines on the skin. In addition you can make four lines from the top of the eyebrow until the arch, from the arch to the tail and underneath from the tail back to the beginning. Within these lines you apply the henna. Tip: wear nitrile gloves, because the thread can leave stains.
4 Clean the skin well
why does the henna not get into the skin? Is a frequently asked question. An important reason is that the skin is not cleaned properly and there are make-up and grease residue still. Therefore the henna can’t develop properly into the skin, with the result that it quickly fades again. Make sure to clean the skin very well. To do so put some Dyotics Prep & Clean spray on a cotton pad and clean the skin. Does your customer have a lot of make-up? Then first use a make-up remover. Make sure that the skin isl dry when you apply the henna. In addition even a wet skin is a deal breaker! Tip: Ask your customers to scrub their brows beforehand. The less dead skin cells the better the henna will set in.
5 Making the henna
The more fluid the henna is when applying it, the harder it becomes during setting in. This often makes it difficult to remove the henna, which means that you really have to rub it off. To prevent this, do not apply the henna too thinly. But also not too thick, in addition there is more chance of allergies. Because with the less water you mix the powder, the more concentrated the tint is and the higher the percentage of ppd.
What is a good substance for brow henna? Think of syrup. The pasta may run a bit of the brush but not too much. Maintain a half scoop of powder and 12 to 15 drops of hot water as a ratio.
