I have answered a couple of frequently asked questions we have gotten into the salon lately.
If you have any questions about this treatment or any other treatment we do please dont hesitate to ask.
1. What are Henna brows?
Henna is a form of brow tinting that stains the skin beneath the brow hairs to create the illusion of depth and fullness and visually filling sparseness. Henna is vegan friendly and free from peroxide activaters. Henna paste is made up of dried leaves of the henna plant. It is in no relation to permanent tattoos.
2. What is the difference between henna and a regular tint?
Henna stains the skin from anything up to 2weeks and stains the hair up to 4-6weeks. Whereas tint will stain the skin for a couple of days and the hair for up to 2weeks (depending on individual).
3. How long does the henna last?
Henna lasts on the skin for up to 2 weeks and lasts on the hair up to 4-6 weeks. It does last abit longer on those who have a dryer complexion then those of an oily complexion.
4. What is the process?
Firstly we talk about what you would like to achieve. Then we map out the prefered shape of the brow and choose a suitable henna shade. The henna is left to soak into the skin for 20mins. Once removed we will shape (wax) and tidy up the brow. The treatment take roughly 45-50mins total.
5. How much is this treatment?
The treatment is €35 and includes a brow shape as well.
6. What is my aftercare?
After the treatment please avoid any heat treatments for 24hrs. Avoid shampoos and conditioners for 24hrs and avoid getting the brows wet for 24ths.
Apply wonder oil to brows every night.
7. What is Wonder Oil?
We recommend Brow Tycoons Wonder oil here at Elite waxing. Known as the 'hero product' as it is all natural, promotes hair growth and preserves the henna and shape for longer. It has omega 9 fatty acids which restores health and shine to brittle and dry hair. It also stimulates the follicle for growth.
for best results use every night.
It retails in the salon for €12
8. Does it have to be dark?
Of course it doesnt have to be dark! There are up to to 12 shades of henna to choose from amd we are able to blend the tint to suit individual needs. So if you dont want to be dark thats ok! Lighter tint will fade a little quicker.
9. How do I make an appointment?
Easy! Pick up the phone and call us on 0870698706. Or you can book online through our website.
We do require a patch test 24hours before treatment for those who have never had henna brows done. If you have any questions or queries please let us know!!
