What is Henna?
Henna is a more natural approach to brow tinting, staining the skin & brow hairs. The purpose of this is to cast a shadow or create an illusion of depth and fullness in the area, visually filling in any sparseness. Henna is a natural dye made from a plant known as hina or the henna tree.
Our henna brow pigments are made up of 99% natural plant based ingredients: the other 1% being a micro additive which opens the hair cuticle and allows the Henna to be fast-acting. It uses NO AMMONIA, NO PEROXIDE, and NO CHEMICALS. Henna thickens the hair, stimulates hair growth, and has antimicrobial properties.
