Henna is a natural colorant made from the dried leaves of the Lawsonia inermis shrub. It produces a beautiful orange-brown color that has been used for thousands of years to dye skin (mehndi), fingernails, and hair. Plant-based and 100% natural, henna is traditionally used on the hands & feet, often in times of celebration and to bring good luck. Mehndi is a particularly elegant form of body art and the Jacquard Mehndi Henna Kit is a great introduction to this ancient process! It comes with everything you need for a successful DIY experience.
