Henna can also be used for stomach and intestinal ulcers. Henna is applied for dandruff, eczema, wounds and fungal infections.
Gives a cooling effect when applied on the skin and gives red color to it. Apply on skin, when it dries completely, the skin or hair is washed with water to reveal the dyed color. Asian brides are not complete until they have applied Henna on their hands and feet. Do not apply Henna after waxing a desired area. Wait a day or two, as skin pores will be opened and Henna contains some chemical. This situation may cause damage or irritation on your skin. Henna gives different color on different skins. On palms it is darkest, near to black sometimes. On the other side of hands, color is much lighter and on arms it gets lighter. Color comes best after one or two days. You notice the difference of color everyday, first it goes darker, then after a few days, it goes lighter and finally gone!
You apply Henna from a cone, where the liquid is placed in it. Apply it with a pin from the cone and do not squeeze cone at the beginning. Place pin in cone when you have done working. Tip of pin has to be clean for better work of art.
