Henna 2


This is me and my henna hands. Like I said before, the henna lady applies henna on one hand, and tells you to come back in an hour. She wants the hand to dry before applying it on the other hand.

I told this lady that I had very little patience and could sit still only for about 15 minutes. She took 10 minutes to apply henna on each hand. After an hour, the henna dries and falls off. No worries. Just don't get your hand wet.

And here is why you need at least one dry hand...

Don't you folks use lemons to make the colour stay longer?

I hope you found a straw ;)

That stuff (and your hands) looks great, but I thought, it would stay on longer.
