Frequently Asked Questions

What is Henna?

Henna (Lawsonia inermis, also known as hina, the henna tree, the mignonette tree, and the Egyptian privet)[2][3] is a flowering plant and the sole species of the Lawsonia genus. The English name "henna" comes from the Arabic حِنَّاء‎ (ALA-LC: ḥinnāʾ; pronounced [ħɪnˈnæːʔ]) or, colloquially حنا‎, loosely pronounced as /ħinna/.

Mehndi (Henna) applied on both hands.

The name henna also refers to the dye prepared from the plant and the art of temporary body art (staining) based on those dyes (see also mehndi). Henna has been used since antiquity to dye skin, hair and fingernails, as well as fabrics including silk, wool and leather. The name is used in other skin and hair dyes, such as black henna and neutral henna, neither of which is derived from the henna plant.

Historically, henna was found to be used in the Arabian Peninsula, South Asia, parts of South East Asia, Carthage, other parts of North Africa and the Horn of Africa. Bridal henna nights remain an important custom in many of these areas, particularly among traditional families.

How long does it last?

Typically Henna tattoos last for a week to 2 weeks. The time tends to vary based on where on the body, skin type, the strength of the henna mixture, how long it is allowed to seep into the skin before water touches it to stop the dying action, and general after care of the henna.

Does it hurt?

Henna tattoos are pain free and one of the main reasons persons prefer it to a regular tattoo.

Is it expensive?

We pride ourselves in being affordable and as such our henna tattoos start as low as JMD$500 and go up based on the size and design selected.

Ja'Henna Disclaimer

Henna for skin application has not been approved by the FDA due to the use of an impostor substance known as ‘Black Henna'. This means its very important to educate yourself about the types of henna out there.

It also does not hurt to do a skin test before.
