Natural henna always results in an orange stain that darkens to brown/red in one to three days.
Natural henna needs to be kept on the skin as long as possible.
Three to four hours is good, longer is better! If your artist says ‘only an hour’, ask what color the stain will be at first.
You want to hear ‘orange’.
# Henna Paste should appear green, brown or dark khaki and has a smell like musky hay. Sometimes you will smell essential oils like eucalyptus, tea tree, or clove oils.
# Natural henna is cooling and healing to the skin.
