The final bright orange or red color of the mehndi basically depends on the composition of the henna powder. Before you fix any deal with mehndi artist inquire about the henna and where it comes from. Though most mehndi artists make mehndi on their own using a variety of ingredients that help the original color to pop.

How to make your bridal mehndi design last longer?

1. Go chemical-free for long-lasting mehndi

Use natural henna as it has no chemicals added and also lasts longer. Natural mehndi comes out darker and leaves you with a more beautiful color.

2. Wash your hands and feet prior to the mehndi application

Before you sit for your mehndi wash your hands and feet with soap. This is very much required because any kind of dirt or oil will hamper the absorption of henna on your skin. Washing your hands will ensure better absorption of henna.

3. Eucalyptus Oil for darker mehndi

The quickest and the easiest answer on earth to make your mehndi darker is to apply eucalyptus oil. Before applying mehndi apply some eucalyptus oil on your hands and feet.

4. Lemon and sugar to darken your mehndi

This is the most common remedy for darkening mehndi. Mix some sugar with lemon juice and use a cotton ball to apply it on your hands and feet after the henna dries up.

5. A trick- clove steam!

Once you are done with the application of lemon juice and sugar, take clove steam to get a gorgeous color. Warm a few cloves on the tawa and run your hands over the smoke.

6. Stay away from water

Use a butter knife or a card to scrape off your mehndi instead of using water or you can simply rub your hands against each other. avoid washing your hands and feet for at least 12 hours. Any kind of contact with water will lighten the color.

7.  Do not Blow dry your mehndi

I know, it’s tempting, to use something to dry your mehndi as soon as possible, but please let it dry on its own. Blow drying will lead to bleeding of your mehndi and ruin the design, which is absolutely not desirable.

8. Shaving or Waxing is restricted

After getting your mehndi done, do not shave or wax as it can scrape off the upper layer of your skin making your mehndi look dull.

9. Leave it overnight for the best color

You’ll be having your mehndi ceremony two days prior to your wedding. After application, leave it on for at least 6-7 hours and a maximum of 12 hours in order to get a rich color.

10. Apply a balm or cooking oil to darken your mehndi

Once you have dusted the dried mehndi, Apply Vicks or cooking oil to bring out the color of your mehndi. Remember to not go overboard with the application of Vicks as it may turn your mehndi to an extremely dark shade of brown.

11. Valuable Vaseline to protect your mehndi color!

Before you go to bed at night, make sure to apply vaseline all over the mehndi to protect the color.

12. Keep it under wraps for an enriched color

Wrapping up the design will give you a richer and darker color. Ask your artist to do so for you.
