Bridal Henna

Bridal mehndi by Dimple Shah


Traditional bridal mehndi

  • The mehendi / henna paste dries within 20-30 minutes. 
  •  Gently tab lemon-sugar mix on the design.
  •  Do not wash your hands. 
  •  Keep the paste for 7-8 hrs. 
  •  Do not wash your hands/feet, just peel off the paste from your hands with spoon or spatula. 
  •  To remove stickiness apply baby oil and clean your hands and feet with paper towel, but do not wash your hands and feet. 
  •  Put 12-15 cloves on a pan & warm up your hands from far with the cloves steam – smoke, for 10 – 15 minutes.
  • To get better color apply Vicks balm or Tiger balm on your hands, but do not wash your hands.
  • The color turns orange in the beginning & later turns to Burgundy after few hours.
  • The color of mehendi also differs on individuals which depends on one’s body heat and how well one takes care of mehendi.

Interview in National Post – dated April 2004

Mehendi also known as Henna is an ancient Indian Body Art. It is used in creating intricate ethnic or contemporary designs and exotic patterns on various parts of the body. It is completely natural, non-permanent and painless. Mehendi was once thought only for women but now men are finding it a nice alternative to permanent tattoos
