Tips to Keep in Mind before and after applying mehendi:
There are some tips which should be kept in mind while bridal Mehendi is applied. These will ensure that the colour is richer and darker and stays for long:
- Avoid washing your hands with water after the mehendi has dried and removed. Water makes the colour lighter and lighter after every use.
- Apply vicks vaporub to the mehendi after it dries. Vicks produces heat which makes the colour richer.
- Avoid using creams and lotions on the hands before application of mehendi. Mehendi doesn’t stick properly to the skin if there is a cream or lotion applied.
- Waxing or shaving after the mehendi is applied makes the colour lighter. hair removal should be done 3-4 days prior to the Mehendi application so that the skin is not red or itchy when the mehendi is applied.
- Mehendi is best applied 1-2 days prior to the wedding. It gets the best colour after 1-2 days so by the time your wedding day is here, your mehendi is the darkest!
- Keep your mehendi overnight as longer duration of the mehendi gives a better colour.
