WHAT IS HENNA?
Lawsonia inermis, or henna, is a dye producing plant, that is most frequently utilized to adorn the skin, hair and nails. Henna stains vary from reddish brown to chocolate brown to burgundy, depending on the region the plant was cultivated (India, Middle East, North Africa, etc.), where it’s applied on the body, skin type and general aftercare. The stains can last anywhere between 7 to 14 days.
WHAT IS JAGUA?
Genipa Americana, or jagua, is a tropical citrus fruit from which juice from the unripe fruit turns blue-black on contact with the skin. It is used as an indelible blue dye and has long been used by native people of South America for tattooing and as a body paint. The dye is indelible on the skin for approximately 15 – 20 days.
Both henna and jagua are natural, temporary and generally safe. However, if you have sensitive skin and are concerned about allergic reactions, feel free to call or Whatsapp Aneesa at 349-9609 between the hours of 10 a.m to 8 p.m, Mondays to Fridays.
Henna designs start at $75 TTD
