Tips for the Bride – Mehandi!
- You should apply it 48 hours before the event. The mehandi usually gets darker after a few hours. When applied, it is best to leave it overnight.
- Once it is dry enough, sprinkle some lemon juice or sugar syrup over the hands or use a cotton ball. Just like lemon juice or sugar syrup, eucalyptus is also supposed to enhance the colour of the mehandi.
- Do not wash it away with water. The longer you keep away from water, the darker your mehandi will be.
- Allow it to fall off naturally. To remove the remaining bits that remain, use a dry towel or just rub with your hands.
- Immediately apply some coconut oil and just leave it at least for 4-5 hours.
- If possible, when you take a shower, put plastic bags on your hands so that the mehandi does not lose its radiance.
- You should have manicures, pedicures, bleaching & waxing done before mehandi is applied, as you definitely would want your mehandi to glow in your hands.
