About Henna

There is a plant named Lawsonia Inermis whose leaves have color-staining properties besides various medicinal benefits. When the plant leaves are dried and crushed, you get an organic henna powder. When you mix this powder with sugar, water, and essential oils like lavender tea-trees, etc., the binding properties of the powder are improved, leading to a curd-like henna paste. This henna paste is then applied to get a reddish-brown color on the skin. Being derived from nature, this organic henna powder is free from any harmful chemicals and is safe to use on hair & skin.

Mihenna Henna Powder Packet

Readymade henna powders generally available in the market are full of chemicals and artificial additives. They claim to offer better color and longer shelf life. But when you hear from henna companies claiming to provide stunning colors & most extended shelf lives, run away as fast as you can! Artificial henna powders contain harmful chemicals that can irritate your customers and may even lead to allergies & skin cancer in the worst case. Apart from staining, henna has many benefits for your hair & skin.

Who is A Henna Artist?

A Henna artist is skilled in creating unique patterns on the skin using henna. Initially, henna was mainly available in India, the Middle East, and the Central Parts of Africa. But, it has gained more popularity in the West in recent years due to its medicinal uses and staining properties. As a result, the demand for henna artists is rising worldwide. Becoming a henna artist can be tempting, but here is a catch. There is no room for messing up things in the henna profession, especially when clients are on board. Though it is not a permanent tattoo, customers expect your work to be highly artistic and accurate. Learning, practicing, and applying is the key to becoming a successful henna artist. We recommend you try henna designs on paper first and then on yourself so you learn the importance of using safe henna paste and accuracy in art making. Here are some of the things to consider as a henna artist:

Things To Note As A Henna Artist

They are full of chemicals & artificial preservatives which can have severe effects on your customer’s skin and hair. Make sure you check twice before using. One way to provide a safe henna experience to your customers is by using organic henna powder. Can’t find the original organic henna powder? Mihenna can help you.

Conclusion

The ingredients of organic henna are natural, so they tend to separate physically after a while. Thus, the shelf life of organic henna powder is limited and can be stored in a freezer for up to three months after the henna paste is made. You can use the henna powder packet if you haven’t opened it when required. You can use a build-your-own henna kit to experiment with multiple designs using henna stencils and create unique henna art.
