1Now days, chemicals are added to mehendi paste to give dark color? Are these chemicals harmful?
Mehendi cones sold in markets may come with presence of harmful chemicals like para-phenylenediamine (PPD) in the mixture, which could lead to strong skin reactions. In addition, the natural oils are being replaced with white oil to give a dark colour. Some people are very sensitive to this chemical and the prolonged use of it can prove to be fatal. The chemical may cause itching, body ache, restlessness, etc. At Ram Kumar Mehandi Arts, you do not need have to worry about the same at all.
2What should I do to get dark colour of the mehandi?
There are a number of home remedies to get a dark colour like applying lemon juice and sugar over it and avoid direct water contact. Heat is a major effect to enhance the colour. We assure that our mehandi paste include all the essentials and appropriate measures are taken to get the desired colour effect, so that you don’t have to put in any extra efforts.
3What is black mehandi?
There is no such thing like black henna. Black henna has paraphenylenediamine, also known as PPD, which can burn your skin (leaving a scar) and do harmful damage to your kidneys.
4Does having dark skin prevent me from having a good colour of mehandi?
Avoid the misconception that being dark skinned prevents you from being able to have dark mehndi. This is certainly not the case. Although people with very dark skin may have to use only the best henna pastes, skin color has very little to do with the final hue of the dye.
5Is henna safe?
Henna is a herbal product, which is absolutely safe to use. We use completely natural henna, which is safe for all skin types, as we do not add any chemical. We have a large number of happy customers with zero complaints.
6How long do the effects stay?
The mehandi generally fades out in one to three weeks. The rest depends on the skin type and also the density of contact with water.
