Henna brows are a form of eyebrow tinting that is used to stain the skin beneath the brow hairs. The purpose of this is to cast a shadow or create an illusion of depth and fullness in the area, visually filling in any sparseness.
Henna is a natural dye made from a plant known as Hina or the henna tree. Henna has been around since ancient Egyptian times when it was used for many purposes such as dyeing hair, clothes, fabrics and as makeup.
The process for henna brows is very similar to henna colouring methods you may see in traditional Indian culture, however, the shades have been formulated to cater for eyebrow tones.
48 hr patch test is required before the appointment.

How long do Henna Brows last?
The results will last between 2 and 4 weeks (depending on your skin type). Skin regenerates daily. It is always difficult to say how long a henna skin stain is going to last on a certain skin type.
Is this available in different colours?
Brow Henna comes in a vast array of colour options, the ranges come in Black, Blonde, Dark Brown, Golden Brown, Light Brown, Mocha Brown and Natural Brown– they are perfect for each skin type and tone.
What are the benefits of Henna Brow?
Brow Henna can do more for you than simply tint your eyebrows. It can actually heal them. It contains hydrolysed proteins, vitamin complex and antioxidants. Therefore, Brow Henna helps to strengthen and restore hair growth and improves the natural condition of the eyebrow. The henna powder contains the Amla extract (Indian Gooseberry) with essential fatty acids and Vitamin C. While the fatty acids strengthen the hair follicle, Vitamin C can halt premature greying. The combination is excellent for your brows. The Shikakai found in Henna (Acacia Concinna) provides the brow hairs with an added shine and softness. It aids in the coating of the hair follicle process. In other words, the Brow Henna is perfect for people who have sparse or over-plucked brows, people with uneven eyebrows.
How do Henna Brows compare to other temporary tinting methods?
Henna is a safe and natural alternative to tints and dyes. It is vegan friendly and free from peroxide activators, making it a suitable option for anyone with sensitive skin. It generally produces longer lasting results and is a good steppingstone to more permanent eyebrow procedures like microblading or cosmetic tattooing. It will appear matte and fluffier than regular tinting. Traditional hair and brow dye will tint the hairs more effectively, whereas henna successfully grips the skin.
Do I need to do a patch test?
Yes, most certainly. This will need to be done at least 48 hours before the treatment to minimise any risk of reactions.
