What is henna?

Henna is the common name for lawsonia inersis, a plant that produces a natural dye that has been used by humans for thousands of years.

Henna leaves are harvested, dried, and ground into a fine powder, which is then mixed with water, specific essential oils and sugar, to create a pure and natural staining henna paste.

This paste is carefully applied to the skin, and allowed to dry and stay in place for several hours. After the dried paste is removed (through rubbing or scraping), a pale pumpkin-coloured stain is revealed, which gradually darkens to a darker shade over the course of 1-3 days. Henna stains range from a light caramel colour, all the way to a dark chocolate stain, depending on a few variables, such as how long the paste remained on the skin, where it was applied on the body, the quality of the henna paste and the individual’s skin chemistry.

Depending on how well a person takes care of their henna body art, it can last from 1-3 weeks and will gradually fade away as the skin naturally exfoliates.

What are henna crowns?

Henna Crowns are a natural extension of using henna body art to beautify oneself. These crowns are used by those who have significant hair loss through either chemotheraphy, or a genetic condition known as “alopecia areata”.

A “henna crown” is the careful application of natural henna paste to the bald skin of a person’s head to create delicate and original motifs, that are designed to make the recipient feel more comfortable with their baldness through the beauty of henna.

Using the bald head as a blank canvas, professional henna artists create intricate and original designs onto the scalp, using safe and natural henna paste, which they have mixed themselves, using organic and other high quality ingredients.

These henna crowns can take between 1-2 hours to create, depending on the size and intricacy of the desired design; as some can extend towards the forehead or sides of the head, or along the base of the skull. This painless process of applying the henna paste is often described as relaxing, uplifting and empowering by recipients.

Depending on how well the henna body art is taken care of and the recipient’s individual skin chemistry; these beautiful henna crowns can last between 1-2 weeks and gradually fade through the skin’s natural exfoliation process.
