In an ever-changing beauty industry there are always new and improved treatments coming onto the market.
Henna is a great example of this. Henna is not a new concept but Elleebana has revamped the formulation to allow Brow artists to create beautiful, long lasting, tattoo like eyebrows.
What is the difference between tinting and Henna Brows?
Tinting uses an oxidant to open the cuticle of the hair and allows colour to penetrate the brow hairs cortex through the oxidation process.
Henna on the other hand, acts like a blanket over the hair and provides a coating to the hair shaft, coating the top layers of the hair cuticle only. As the brow cuticle has a scale like finish this coating smooths out the finish, almost like buffing out the hair imperfections to give the appearance of a thicker, softer and smoother hair and eyebrow.
What does the process involve?
Brow Henna is applied in the same way as normal tint but the treatment time can vary between 30-45minutes.
The treatments start with a thorough ‘shampooing’ of the eyebrow followed by drawing the desired shape. Then the Henna is applied and left to dry.
Removal is a quick wipe with a damp cotton pad.
The results are beautifully coloured brows that can last up to 14 days on the skin and 4- 6 weeks on the hair.
Elleebana Brow Henna has 7 different colours that is highly pigmented, matched perfectly to each skin type and tone and can be completely customised for each individual.
Is it safe to use?
Elleebana Brow Henna contains no ammonia, lead or peroxide which helps to minimize the body’s natural absorption of nasties.
I would always recommend a patch test at least 48hours before having the service done.
Who would benefit from this treatment?
This is ideal for people who has to tint their brows every 2-3 weeks or wants to fill brows without going down the semi permanent route.
Thank you for taking the time to read and I look forward to welcoming you to my treatment room!
