3 Best & Easiest Ways To Darken The Color Of Your Mehendi This Karwa Chauth ! Tried & Tested !

By


Mehndi, also known as henna, has been an age-old tradition in many Asian and Persian countries. Women use henna to form intricate designs to decorate their hands and feet to mark special occasions or to simply look trendy.
We all sure want the mehndi on our palms and feet to look its glorious best on our special days. And why not? 




1. Leave henna for a longer time:

Wash off the henna after 7-8 hours. If you can afford to keep it longer, leave it for about 12 hours. Do not wash with water; instead scrape it out by rubbing your palms together till the dried henna falls off! Within a few hours you will see the rich colour develop.

2. Dab lemon sugar mixture couple of times:

Boil some sugar in water and allow it to cool. Now decant this mixture into a bowl. Add a few drops of lemon juice and apply the lemon sugar mixture a couple of times on the henna once it has dried. The sugar keeps the mehndi in contact with the skin for deeper penetration, while the lemon juice acts as a catalyst for dye release and deep penetration of colour.

4. Run your hands over the fumes of the cloves:

Try ‘bhaap’ for a splendid and rich penetration of the mehndi design on your palms. Before you hit the bed, first apply the lemon sugar mixture mentioned above. Now heat a few cloves over a tawa and run your hands over the fumes of the cloves, but carefully! Let the fumes dry up the lemon and sugar mixture. You can either scrape the henna off after this, or leave it on until dusk.
