Tips to Darken Your Finger Mehndi!

Who doesn't love dark mehndi stains? After all, spending hours seated to get your dream design is totally worth it. We've compiled some tips that you can follow to darken your finger mehndi design:

Use a Mixture of Lemon & Sugar 

This is one of the oldest methods to maintain the stain's intensity. Once your finger mehndi has dried slightly, gently apply this mixture onto your mehndi. This will help it stick to your skin for a longer period and result in a darker hue.


Take 7-8 cloves and heat them in a pan. After removing your mehndi, hold your hands over the clove fumes. Cloves possess a warming quality that aids in enhancing the darkness of your mehndi.

Mustard Oil

Here's another home remedy to deepen your mehndi's stain. It's a simple trick – just apply some mustard oil to your hands. Allow it to sit for 5-6 hours and observe the results. Psst... it also softens your hands.

Tea or Coffee in your Mehndi Mix

You can request your mehndi artist to incorporate some coffee or tea into the mix. These two components really help in giving your mehndi the right amount of darkness. 

Avoid Water

Never wash off your mehndi prematurely. Always allow it to dry naturally and keep it away from water. Water can lighten the stain, so it's best to avoid contact for a while.

Apply Eucalyptus Oil

Essential oils can be really helpful, and eucalyptus oil is a good choice. If you're not a fan of mustard oil, you can opt for eucalyptus oil and apply it to the mehndi designs on your fingers.

Well, well, who would have thought that finger mehndi designs could be so fresh and exceptionally next-level? It's time to stop settling for those average finger mehndi designs and go for something you truly love. Also, don't forget to let us know which of these designs got you hooked!
