What is henna?
Henna is a very fine green powdery substance that comes from a plant of the same name. When mixed with water or other liquids, it thickens into creamy paste which is then ready for application on the hands, feet or other body parts. Henna is essentially a natural dye which when removed after several hours, leaves a reddish-brown color behind that lasts for several days to weeks. For easy application, ready-to-apply henna is available in tubes or cones.
