Before you start dyeing your eyebrows with henna, you need to correct the shape. All hairs outside the selected eyebrow shape are removed with tweezers or wax. Then the eyebrow area should be treated with a facial scrub to remove dead cells and allow deeper penetration of the coloring pigment into the skin between the hairs. This will paint over scars and bald spots, hide traces of unsuccessful correction and other eyebrow defects.
After scrubbing, the skin must be additionally degreased. A weak alcohol solution is fine. To facilitate the process of applying henna and a clearer result, the desired shape of the eyebrows is drawn with a cosmetic pencil. You can use an eyebrow stencil for identical contouring.
Henna itself dyes hair and skin a reddish color, so it must be mixed with basma in a 1: 1 ratio. For a more predictable result, it is advisable to purchase specialized henna for dyeing the eyebrows of the desired shade. On sale, henna for biotattoo exists in the form of a powder and a ready-made mixture. In a glass container, dilute henna powder with hot water to the consistency of a thick cream, add a few drops of lemon juice (the acidic environment enhances the color). Cover the container with henna foil for 10 minutes, the mixture will infuse and cool to a comfortable temperature.
Using a cotton swab or narrow brush, apply henna to the very tip of your eyebrow. The mixture is applied with short hammering strokes. Paint the ponytail of the second eyebrow in the same way. Then cover the middle of the eyebrows with the compound. Lastly, the dye is applied to the widest part of the eyebrow. The henna layer should be thick, but not spread over the contour.
The staining time depends on the desired color and intensity. The minimum exposure time is 20 minutes, but it is not recommended to keep it longer than 40 minutes. The henna for the eyebrows is washed off with a cotton pad moistened with cool water. To fix the color after dyeing, any natural oil is applied to the eyebrows.
