Tips to keep in mind before and after you apply your Mehndi:
- Speak well in advance to your Mehndi artists on about how you wish to personalise your Mehndi design for wedding.
- Relax when you sit down to get your Mehndi done, it will take a long time. Visit the washroom right before you sit down for the Mehndi ceremony.
- We suggest you do a trail of the design on paper once before you actually book a Mehndi artist.
- Please wear something comfortable while you're at it. Applying henna and especially when you are the bride is usually a long process. You might just get tired too of sitting upright so that your mehndi doesn't falter in any way. One tip that will make it an easy breeze is switching into something comfortable before your henna artist stars applying mehndi on to your palms and feet.
- Apply the lemon concoction on to your nearly dried up mehndi to get that brightest hue of red
- if you want an even darker tone, then once you have removed the dried up henna, apply move on your palms and feet, cover them with a pair of sock and voila you will have the henna colour that will make everyone else jealous. Trust us!
- Please eat before you get your mehndi on. It is oddly uncomfortable to get fed by someone while you are sitting stick as a board. so, a full stomach before you get your hands filled with henna is the right way to get things done!
