Follow These Simple Steps For Dark Mehandi Color
We can’t imagine Indian weddings without Mehandi. According to old saying the darkness of Mehandi shows the intensity of your partners love Actually Mehandi is a form of body art and is traced back to Ancient India. The decorative designs are usually made on hands and feet, while many even use henna on their shoulders. It is a very popular tradition for Indian weddings and even festivals like Karva Chauth, Teej and Diwali. If you're getting married this wedding season and want your henna colours to pop, we've got the right tips for you.
Clean You’re Hands
Always clean your hands and feet before getting the Mehandi applied. Once all the dirt and grime is removed, the Mehandi paste will be able to get absorbed properly.
Try to keep Mehandi at least for 10-12 hours
Keep the mehndi on for a couple of hours. 10-12 hours of stay can turn the colour darker. If you have the wedding ceremony at night, you can sleep with the mehndi on and wash it off the next morning.
Mixture of Lemon and Sugar
Apply lemon water and sugar mixture to your menhadi designe once dry. Boil some water and mix sugar and add a few drops of lemon. However, don't overdo this step as too much of this mixture can ruin the design.
You can also try the clove 'bhaap' trick. On a pan, heat a few cloves and move your hands around the smoke of the cloves, which can make the colour darker. You can do this trick with the lemon mixture on your palms.
