How to get the best result from your Henna

I love Henna when it leaves a very, very, very dark stain and you can achieve that if you care for it properly so if you want to get the best results from your henna then carry on reading below.

When the Henna is dry get a bowl and mix sugar and lemon into it and make a good paste.
 Get some cotton wool and dab it on your dry henna. 
DO NOT soak the henna in the paste. Just dab enough on but not too much
When the Henna dries again LEAVE it on. 
DO NOT keep on adding the lemon and sugar paste.

Try to keep the Henna on for at least 2-6 hours. Then when it's brittle- flake it off. 
DO NOT wash the Henna just rub it off and it should come off. 
If you wash your hand then you will wash the dye. 
Try to avoid water for 4-6 hours after you have flaked the Henna off.

You can use also use tea bag, coffee, or Vicks instead of the lemon and sugar paste- It will help with the colour BUT the Henna will fade quickly
If you are making your own Henna or getting it done by someone make sure to ask them if they have put oil in the henna, as it helps to enhance the colour of henna. 
Eucalyptus oil is the most effective and the oil is better to enhance the colour.

Try to not wash your hands a lot because the colour will fade quicker. So try to avoid washing your hands. If you need to use your hands then wear gloves. 
It will take 48 hours for the Henna colour to be at its darkest
Keep yourself warm as possible
The warmer you are the darker the Henna will get.

How to get rid of Henna
There is no way to get rid of the Henna but you can scrub and exfoliate to make the Henna wash away quickly.
