“Henna crowns” are a temporary, safe and all-natural form of body-art for people experiencing hair loss.
Click here to learn about henna safety and how henna is being used to help people undergoing cancer treatment.
The Henna Crown is created free-hand by a skilled artist, using homemade henna paste. The design takes between 60-90 minutes to complete. The henna design dries quickly but should be left on for about 8 hours (the longer the henna stays on the skin, the darker the design will be).
After brushing off the dry paste, the design is bright orange, but will darken over 48 hours.
The design will last 7-10 days, gradually fading as your skin exfoliates.
