Sealant Magic

There are many sealants available to protect and bring out the color in your Henna designs.  This article will briefly go through some of them, please use this as a start towards your own research.  Comments, tips and even your own preferred sealant methods are welcome.  In this article we will go over common sealants for body art.

  1. Lemon & Sugar or Honey & Lemon: this is probably the most common and well known of the body art sealants out there.  Its is simple and easily made at home by adding approximately 1 part lemon to 2 parts sugar or 1.5 parts honey.  Dissolve the sugar/honey into the lemon juice over low heat.  Once it is ready and cool, you can put it into a bowl and add a few cotton balls for application.  This way everyone can continue to re apply the sealant a few times throughout the night.  I like to put mine in a spray bottle and spray a few squirts onto the paste.  Make sure that the paste is dry enough before sealing, otherwise your henna will begin to run.  The sugar keeps a protective barrier from the air while the lemon keeps the henna wet and also pulls out more of dye onto the skin.  Caution: too much sugar will make your henna crack and too much lemon will make your henna run.
  2. Hairspray or spray gel: Some people use non toxic hairspray hair spray or spray gel.  This really keeps the henna firmly on.  The hairspray tends to dry the henna out quick, where as the spray gel keeps it wet longer.
  3. Cotton Balls & Tape: once your henna has dried on top, you can use cotton to cover the design and then tape to secure the cotton balls.  You can leave it like that or cover it with a plastic bag.  With a plastic bag, your henna may stay too wet and can easily smudge.
  4. Fixative Tape: This is also one of my favourites and what I use in private bookings, bridals and pregnant bellies.  Once the Henna has dried on top I wrap it up using fixative tape, this keeps the henna wet and in place.  It is comfortable and leaves clients free to move and continue with the day.  When you remove the tape, the henna comes off with it… almost perfectly.
  5. Saran or plastic wrap:  This is  must for the hair or eyebrows as we do not want the henna to dry at all on the hairs.  But it is also a good one to add on top of some fixative tape, cotton, toilet paper or paper towel.

Like I mentioned in the beginning of this post, these are the most common and also great to combine them.  There are many other methods of securely sealing your Henna designs.  Have fun and experiment!
