Henna Brow Tint vs. Regular Brow Tint: What Is Better?

Henna Brow Tint vs. Regular Brow Tint: What Is Better Eyebrow tinting is a popular procedure that can be performed both in beauty salons and by yourself at home. Eyebrows can be tinted with a regular tint, which is similar to hair dyes, or with a henna tint. Which one of these two options is better? What kind of tint should you choose for your eyebrows?

Let us make one thing clear from the start: by no means should you tint your eyebrows with permanent hair dye. It is too aggressive and can cause severe irritation of the delicate skin around the eyes and/or eyebrow hair loss.

If you need to colour your eyebrows, you should use a special eyebrow tint or natural henna. Each of these options has its pros and cons. In addition, the procedure itself and eyebrow care after tinting are different depending on the type of tint you choose.

The main difference between a regular brow tint and a henna eyebrow tint is the final result. Regular tints only colour the hairs, while henna also stains the skin underneath. Using a regular brow tint, you can make your eyebrows lighter thanwhen their natural colour, while henna tints only allow to get darker shades.

Since regular eyebrow tints only dye the hairs, the result looks as natural as possible. This is good for thick and not patchy eyebrows. However, if you tint patchy eyebrows with a regular tint, they will still look patchy after the procedure (and the patches might be actually more visible due to the new, richer colour of your eyebrows).

Henna tints allow to fill the patches and make your eyebrows look thicker and fuller. Therefore, they are recommended in situations where you need to not just tint your eyebrows, but also to correct imperfections.

How else are henna brow tints different from regular brow tints? Their colour palettes are another difference. Permanent brow tints come in a wide range of colours, including light shades. Natural henna only stains red; it can be mixed with other natural dyes such as indigo or coffee to get shades of brown and black. The final result of tinting your eyebrows with henna will depend on their original colour and the time of exposure, but henna tints will never allow you to make your brows lighter than they are.

Permanent tints also differ from henna tints in the duration of the effect. The result of tinting your eyebrow with a regular tint will last for up to three weeks, while henna stays on the skin for a couple of weeks, and up to a month on eyebrow hairs. The duration of the effect also depends on how well you take care of your eyebrows. For example, if you use a scrub or a sponge on your eyebrows, henna will wash off much earlier than expected, while permanent dye probably won’t be affected as much.

Speaking about the differences between henna tints and regular tints, we should also mention the important fact that henna not only dyes eyebrow hairs but also strengthens them, while regular tints don’t have such an effect. On the contrary, they can damage hair structure and weaken hair follicles when used too often, leading to eyebrow hair loss.

So, what should you choose, a henna eyebrow tint or a regular one? The answer is quite simple: you should choose whatever suits your peculiar needs more.

  • If you have thick eyebrows and all you want is to change their colour without changing the shape, if you want to make your eyebrows lighter than they are, and if you are not afraid of chemicals contained in permanent dyes, opt for a regular brow tint.
  • If you want to make your brows look thicker, change their shape, cover patches caused by plucking or eyebrow hair loss, and strengthen your eyebrow hairs, opt for a natural henna brow tint.
