henna, the hair gets a shine and brassiness that you will rarely, if

no side effects whatsoever, except for envious stares of those who

Henna is an ancient Art of body decoration, an art practiced as
early as the Pharoanic civilisation of Egypt. Evidence suggests that
the ancient Egyptian Pharoes used henna during the mummification
process as well as for cosmetic purposes. Today we find this natural
body art practised throughout the world. In India henna or mehndi as
it is known, is used as part of the traditional wedding ceremonies
and hence part of the eastern culture. Very fine and intricate henna
designs are drawn onto the hands and arms to beautify the bride.
Throughout the African continent henna is used for cosmetic
purposes. In Europe and America it has become a natural alternative
to tattooing, and a method of self expression.
The henna plant is botanically known as Lawsonia inermis, a plant
indigenous to northern Africa and India (illustrated). It has since
been grown and cultivated in much of the world's continents,
Americas, Australia, as well as Africa and Asia. The Henna plant is
also known as "Al-Hina", Egyptian Priest and mignonette.
It grows to a height of 6 metres and blossoms fragrant red and white
flowers. It is primarily used to produce orange, red and brown dyes,
which are obtained from its crushed leaves.
Depending on the skin colour/type, henna can last upto four
weeks. The colouring gradually fades. The skin naturally exfoliates
and the skin layer will renew itself. Certain parts of the body take
longer to exfoliate such as the palms of the hands and the soles of

sometimes referred to as Henna tattoo. Henna is a natural herb when
combined with water, and applied on to skin will leave a rich
orangey/brown stain. Unlike tattooing henna does not puncture or
pierce the skin. In fact it is completely natural, it is simply
absorbed by the skin.
The original henna powder can be mixed with other natural
substances which can enhance henna's natural colouring. Substances
that have been used are; lemon juice, tea leaves/bags, natural oils
such as eucalyptus oil, and certain spices. Re-application of henna
will also produce a more richer and lasting stain. Henna should be
soaked for at least two hours prior to application for best results.
Henna should be left on for as long as possible to bring out its
rich colour, as a minimum, at least one hour.
