Benefits of Henna Eyebrow Tint
Safety: Dying eyebrows can be a difficult process as the dyes must be strong enough to dye the hairs but safe enough to use near the eyes and on a sensitive area of skin. On average, henna eyebrow tint is much gentler and safer than any other hair dye formula.
It is worth noting that caution must still be practiced. As with any product, there is the chance of having an allergic reaction so a patch test prior to the treatment is recommended. Darker shades of henna also contain PPD, an ingredient that can cause skin irritation for some users.
Semi-Permanent: Henna eyebrows provide a compromise between daily eyebrow application and more permanent methods like microblading and eyebrow tattooing. This can be a way to test permanent eyebrows before committing.
Great for Vacations: No one wants to waste precious minutes of vacation time fussing with eyebrow application. Henna eyebrows, because they last a few weeks, can provide a way to take back that vacation time. As the brows fade you can also use the outline to more easily apply your brow makeup. This ensures you have hassle free, gorgeous brows throughout your whole vacation.
Are Eyebrows Henna Right for You?
Henna brows are a safe, natural product that can work well for a variety of skin and hair types. However, they are not always for everyone. The look tends to be more solid than other eyebrow application methods which might not be your preferred look. We do recommend them for the following reasons:
For Use as a Template: One of the best uses of henna brows is as a shape guide for people with sparse brows. Laying in this color gives you a template to fill in with your preferred brow products. This makes it much easier to get the even, balanced results you want. .
Freshening Old Permanent Makeup: Permanent makeup, despite the name, is not 100% permanent. For eyebrow tattoos, you will tend to see fading after a few years. Henna brows have a similar look to some tattoos and the treatment can be used to add color back and extend the life of your permanent brows.
Henna Before You Microblade: Unsure if microblading is right for you? Henna brows can give you a preview that will let you see if permanent brows work for your lifestyle. While the look is not exactly the same, it does provide a similar experience and will let you experiment with eyebrow shape.
Is Henna Only for Brown Hair?
While henna was once only available in an orangish brown tone, it is now available in more than a dozen colors. This ranges from blonde all the way to black. Our range of available shades can be further customized by combining two of more pigments. This ensures you get a beautiful match that complements your hair and skin tone.
