Brow Henna 411
Elleebana Henna Brow Tinting:
-STOP ALL AT HOME BROW GROOMING. Give yourself 4 weeks from your last brow grooming session (this includes any professional brow shaping as well). Avoid waxing, threading, tweezing, trimming, or shaving around the brow area for at least one month, or longer if a lot of damage has been done.
-You can come with makeup on or off, doesn’t matter.
-Head to my IG page (@sparkstudiomn_brows) and save any before and afters you resonate with.
-Start feeding your brows with health. Brow growth serums and castor oil applied daily can help.
-Henna Brow Tinting is a TREATMENT. This service if repeated often (4-8 weeks) can dramatically help regrow over groomed brows. Be realistic about the regrowth process, some clients take as long as a year before old, empty follicles decide to produce a hair.
-Again, this is a TREATMENT. It also conveniently delivers a beautiful tint to the brow hairs and leaves a skin stain behind. If you already have dark/black brow hairs, you will not see the visual lasting results as long as someone who has blonde/fair colored hair. PLEASE REMEMBER, dark haired clients still receive the same nourishing benefits! Typically the tint can last up to 6 weeks.
-I have to get to know how your skin and hair take the color. I aim to nail this everytime, but it could take a few sessions before I am able to zero in on exactly what makes you happy. This line of brow tinting is natural, and so are the colors within it. Take this into consideration as I skillfully use my expertise to balance them with your skin and hair tones.
-The skin stain may initially come off warm or cool, it may evolve over that day or the following days. Sometimes it appears warm simply from blood coming to the surface of your skin during the treatment.
-Immediately it could feel dark or overwhelming depending on your request or how your skin and hairs take the tint. This WILL fade, so don’t stress. If it’s overwhelming, just wash your face. Use gentle face wash, and DO NOT SCRUB. Henna is only coloring the top layer of your skin, scrubbing could cause flaky, spottiness.
-Natural looking results will fade faster. There is no way to get this to last longer without going darker.
-Henna is not Microblading. Your brows may be at two different locations on your face (one higher than the other is typical), I will NOT correct this. I will do my best to make them look like mirror images, but they will still be at different locations.
-Unlike regular brow tinting, Henna wraps its color around each hair creating more thickness with the brow hairs. If you repeat this service, that color will build making vellus hairs appear more dominant.
-As the days pass, your skin stain will fade. Most likely it will not last beyond 5 days. Henna is only attached to the top layer of skin. Any moisture and natural skin oils will fade the color.
-Avoid face washing, sweating, moisture of any kind, and sun for the first 24hrs.
-Avoid scrubs and brightening products around the brow area.
-Once the skin stain fades, resume brow serums or castor oil.
-Rebook! 4-8 weeks is ideal for those wanting to aid in regrowth.
