ok but i must warn you, i tried to get it off (when i accedently found out it worked, i was making a card and the scraps got wet when i knocked over a cup of iced tea, and when i picked up the scraps and was holding them trying to clean up the mess my hand was stained) i tried nail polish remover and soap and neither worked

lol well hmm.... maybe it will wash out eventually? was the paper really wet?

Henna is a natural leaf product. There are many websites about henna that can tell you more than i can!! It is bought in powder form, it is a grassy green colour, and smell s a bit like hay. When it is made up, i always think it smells like a fresh cowpat...it looks a bit like one too...

Henna should only come in brown or red. To get black henna, a lot of the time it is mixed with PPD, a hair-dye ingredient. This can cause burns. You can, however, buy Indigo leaves, which are often sold as black henna. Check the ingredients though, unless it is 100% henna or Indigo, don't buy it.

To make up henna for tattooing:

1 cup Henna
1/2 cup strong tea or coffee (tea for a reddish tinge, coffee for a more brown tinge)
Tsp Lemon Juice.

Sieve Henna to remove any twig bits of larger granules. Mix ingredients together.

Setting spray:
1 cup hot water
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp sugar

Mix together until the sugar has dissolved. Transfer to spray bottle.

Transfer cool henna to a cone/Piping bag with a tiny nozzle.

Henna oil helps the henna to cure on the skin.

Instructions:

Clean skin to be hennaed with a baby wipe.
Wipe skin with henna oil.

Pipe henna into a pattern on the skin.

Spray with setting spray.

leave henna on for as long as possible (4 hrs minimum, 8 hours recommended. Indian Wedding parties make the bride keep it on for 48 hours). Spray the henna periodically with the setting spray to stop it drying out on the skin.

Clean off with warm water when ready

Wait 2-3 days for it to develop fully.

Henna and indigo are also excellent natural hair dyes. And it is possible to get neutral, colourless henna, or Amla powder to give yourself a really good conditioning treatment.

To make up henna for hair dyeing:

(for med length hair (shoulder to bra strap)

100g Henna/indigo powder
1 cup strong tea or coffee (same as above)
2 tsp lemon juice.

Mix the ingredients together (make the tea/coffee warm but not hot!) using non-metallic implements. Cover with cling-film (saran wrap in the US i think...) and leave in a warm place to dye-release.

Check after an hour. Dye release can be seen when a darker crust appears on the top of the henna. This means that it is ready to use. With indigo, this crust will be a dark blue/black.

Apply to damp hair. make sure that you don't try to brush it through, but smoosh it onto the hair, tryign to make sure that all strands are covered.

Wrap hair in a shower cap and a warm towel.

Try to leave the henna on for as long as possible, 8 hours is preferable, 4 is a minimum.

Shampoo out and condition well.

Again, leave for a couple of days to cure.

Other people may have other recipes, but these are the ones that work for me. However, the best thing to do it have a go at a few differemnt ones and see what works best for you. you do need to have some kind of acid in the henna mix to dye-release though, and some kind if colouring herb (with normal henna) to help it colour nicely.

I don't think so. It depends. If you get the henna in the tubes, then it is all mixed and ready to use. If you get the henna powder, then you have to mix it yourself.

Different people's skin accepts henna better etc etc. The longer you leave it, the darker the result when its finished developing, and the longer it lasts.
