What is Henna Brows?
Brow Henna is long lasting brow dye that remains on the skin underneath the brows for up to 2 weeks and stays on the hair for 4-6 weeks. Brow Henna is a solution for clients wanting their brows to remain darker than their natural brow hair colour for the same amount of time that their shaping lasts. It is also a great solution for clients wanting to achieve a more filled-in look without having to use makeup or a brow pencil. Brow Henna also effectively covers grey brow hairs and comes in a variety of different shades.
What is the difference between Brow Tint and Brow Henna?
Brow Tint uses a similar dye that Hair Stylists use. The tint is mixed with a low percentage of hydrogen peroxide (3%) and then applied to the brows for 1-5 minutes and lasts on the hair for 2-4 weeks.Brow Henna is a specially formulated Henna mixture made specifically for eyebrows. The powder is mixed with a specially formulated mineral solution and then applied to the brows for 10-20 minutes. Brow Henna lasts on the brow hair for 4-6 weeks, and on the skin underneath the brow hair for up to 2-weeks!If you have very light eyebrows, or do not normally wear a lot of brow makeup, we recommend starting with brow tinting. If you are used to a more filled-in and defined brow, are looking for a longer lasting solution, have stubborn grey brow hairs, or are looking to camouflage gaps or sparse brow hair, we recommend booking a Brow Henna service.
How do I help with the longevity of my brow tint or Brow Henna?
The most important factor in extending the longevity of brow tint and Brow Henna is to not get the brow area wet for 24 hours after application. Also, exercising caution when applying any type of skin care products containing exfoliators (topical acne medications, retinol, lightening products, alpha hydroxy acids, benzol peroxide, salicylic acid, glycolic acid etc.) Keep all of these away from your brows as they will strip them of their color and could harm the hair as well.
