What is the difference between normal tinting and henna brows?
- Normal tinting will last around 1-2 days on the skin and 5-7 days on the hair, where henna brows are known to last up to 14 days on the skin and up to 28 days on the hair.
Do henna brows fade overtime?
- Henna is a natural permanent dye and it will fade only as the skin regenerates a new epidermis which is our outermost layer of the skin.

Can I apply henna brows after getting a spray tan?
- This is a NO. If there is spray tan in the skin cells, there is a good chance that it will throw a yellow or green glow on the skin around the eyebrows. Therefore, we advise you to not use spray tan at least for the last two weeks before the henna treatment.
What if the color seems too light?
- You can apply another layer with a darker shade over the top straight away. Our shades can be mixed with each other at any time.
Are henna brow tints safe?
- Yes they are completely safe for your skin, your body, and, yes, even if you’re pregnant. When applied to your skin, it may look like a real tattoo, but allergic reactions to PPD (an ingredient in the henna to help process faster and eliminate red tones) can cause an allegoric reaction. We recommend a patch test if you have skin sensitivities.
What else has an impact on the color?
- Know that the brows should be kept dry for the first 24 hours after the treatment. Even after that time, it is important not to use any cleaning products, scrubs, or peelings on the brow.
