Lemon/Sugar Sealant

Once henna paste dries, it tends to crack and crumble off, however henna must remain on the skin for 4 - 8 hours for the darkest and longest lasting stain. So in order to help prevent the paste from crumbling off, try sealing the henna to the skin with a lemon/sugar mixture.

If you are going to sleep with the paste on, sealing it and then wrapping it in a tensor bandage, sock or something else breathable (that you don't mind getting stained), is a good way to prevent crumbs from falling off in the bed.

Lemon/Sugar Recipe

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

  • 1 tsp sugar

 

  • Gently heat the sugar in the lemon juice on med/low just until the sugar dissolves.

  • Remove from heat and let cool.

  • Make sure the henna paste is completely dry. It should no longer look shiny or feel soft and should be starting to crack a little bit and to come away from the skin slightly, as in this photo:

  • Dip a 100% cotton ball into the mixture, squeeze out excess, and gently dab it onto the dry henna paste.

  • Do not saturate the henna otherwise it will start to melt, you want to cover it lightly. 

  • Allow to dry.

  • You can apply the sealant approximately every hour, or when you notice cracking and crumbling.
