Henna – An Alternative of Body Painting
For many years, tattooing and piercing have become two popular types of body painting. Although many people like this type, they actually hurt, so we must be absolutely willing to do it. Now there’s a new popular form of body painting. It is preferable because it gives our body a beautiful appearance without hurting it so much. This type is called henna.
If you like to watch Indian movies, you will see them painted on women’s hands, especially in wedding scenes. These movies could be the ones that have spread the popularity of henna around the world. In fact, henna plants have been used for thousands of years for medicines, cosmetics, and hair dyes. They can be used as an anti-fungal and as a preservative for fabrics and leather. The flowers are used for perfumes.
The henna plant grows in the tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, North and South Asia, such as India, Morocco, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt, Somalia, Bangladesh, Libya, and Sudan. A different variety of henna is grown in each region. The powder is made from the leaves. Each plant has its own characteristics, so it influences the colors.
If you think henna is black, you are wrong. Pure black is not a natural color. Pure and natural colors are khaki, dark green, and brown. When applied to the skin, they can produce some colors from orange to red to cherry black and almost black. Some factories often mix different types of henna, coming from different parts of a country or even from different countries, to obtain perfect colors.
You can apply henna to your hands, legs, and arms. For simple designs, you only need to prepare for 10 or 15 minutes. For complex designs, several hours are needed to achieve the best result. After painting, spray the henna with a solution of lemon and sugar to preserve the paste. The duration of the painting depends on the quality of the paste and the type of skin. The best qualities can last up to one month.
