Sifted Henna Powder

Sifted Henna
What Makes Henna Expensive

 What really makes henna top quality besides its stain ability is it's sift. Once sifted finely, your ability to use many types of applicators becomes almost endless. This becomes important too if you tend touse very fine lines in your Mehndi designs. Designs from India utilize very fine intricate lines often in wedding Henna Mehndi, leaving romantic messages and bride and groom images. Sudan designs however are bold and don't use as many thin fine lines as her neighbor India.

Right now as we speak I am working on a henna sifter design which will enable us to sift any brand of henna which may not be triple sift from India. We will offer it here and on our sister site Ink Sopt Henna soon. Keep sifting guys! Happy Mehndi!

Sudan Henna test...

It was fun mixing his henna from Sudan. I swear it's stain is just as good as the Rajistanir triple sift henna from India. The main draw back is that it's not triple sift, but that's ok because I find a super fine mesh sifter here in he markets which works wonderful for you to sift your henna before mixing. I do have a tutorial at Sanpguige on mixing henna Mehndi paste for body art.

Lemons are very tiny here and it would take a car load to get a cup so I use this tea liquid method or I use vinegar. I think your liquid depends on what's available to you and also your chosen henna powder. The henna design I present here I used vinegar in the mix.
