How to Tint Your Eyebrows with Henna at Home

How to Tint Your Eyebrows with Henna at Home For many women, well-groomed eyebrows are just as important as luscious hair or glowing skin. No wonder that eyebrow tinting and styling is a popular beauty procedure. Since eyebrow tinting isn’t available in all beauty salons (and even banned in some U.S. states), many women tint their eyebrows with henna at home. Let’s learn how to use henna to tint your eyebrows.

Henna is a natural dye prepared from the dried and powdered leaves of the henna tree (Lawsonia inermis). It has been used for body art and as a hair/eyebrow dye since ancient times. To prepare a dye from henna powder, you need to mix it with water or another liquid (for example, lemon juice) to get a paste.

Henna only stains the skin and hair one colour, reddish brown, but the final colour of your eyebrows may vary from bright red to reddish brown depending on their natural colour and on how long you have left the dye on your eyebrows before rinsing it off. For other colours, henna is usually mixed with some other kind of herbal dye, for example, indigo or amla (Indian gooseberry). Thanks to this, the palette of eyebrow shades you can achieve is really wide.

Henna cannot dye your eyebrows permanently because of their rapid hair growth cycle, but it will stain them for at least two weeks. That’s why eyebrow tinting is considered a semi-permanent beauty procedure. If you want to tint your eyebrows with henna at home, you’ll need pure henna powder or a jar of henna eyebrow tint, a non-metal bowl, a flat make-up brush, cotton pads or cosmetic sponges, and some warm water.

If you want to style your eyebrows in addition to tinting them, you will also need tweezers, an eyebrow pencil, and eyebrow styling products (for example, eyebrow gel or wax). You will also need thick cream, Vaseline or carrier oil to apply around your eyebrows to protect the skin from staining.

Tinting Your Eyebrows With Henna: Main Steps

To tint your eyebrow with henna at home, you need to prepare everything you need for the procedure and wipe your eyebrows with a makeup remover tissue or an alcohol-soaked cotton swab to remove makeup residue and skin oil. In a non-metal bowl, mix henna powder with warm water. You can add several drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice to brighten the colour and make the stain last longer. Stir well to get a thick, lump-free paste.

When the dye is ready, use the eyebrow pencil to draw the desired outline of your eyebrows. If you’re satisfied with the current outline, you can skin this step, but it’s still recommended to contour the eyebrows to make dyeing easier. Additionally, you can comb your eyebrows, it will also make the procedure easier because the dye will be more evenly distributed.

The shape of the eyebrows is determined individually and may depend on the current makeup trends, but the good old classic shape will never let you down. To give your eyebrows such a shape, hold the pencil to the wing of your nose and position it so that it passes through the inner corner of the eye. The beginning of the eyebrow lies at the intersection of the pencil and the eyebrow.

Then you need to position the pencil so that it rests on the wing of the nose and passes through the outer corner of the eye. This is the end of the eyebrow. Next, slightly move the pencil diagonally so that the line runs from the wing of the nose through the outer edge of the cornea. The top of the brow arch will lie at the intersection of the line with the eyebrow hairs.

The next step is applying henna. It is recommended to start with the outer end of the eyebrow, moving through the central part to the inner end. You should apply henna with a flat brush, making sure that each hair is stained. After applying the dye, you should let it sit for 15 to 25 minutes, depending on how coarse your eyebrow hairs are and on how dark you want them to get. If you need to remove some dye, you can wipe it with a damp cotton swab before it’s too late.

As soon as the tint dries, you can wash it off, using a cotton pad or ball and warm water. After washing off the henna, comb your eyebrows with a special brush and adjust their shape with tweezers, if necessary. Then don’t wet your eyebrows or use any eyebrow product for at least two days.
