So here are the tips and hacks courtesy the top mehendi artists in the business!

Aditis Mehendi Art★ 4.9 says:

  • Don't let the henna get so dry on your skin that it absorbs the colour back.
  • If you have hair on your arms, is very difficult to achieve the design you want.

Raju Mehandi Artist GK-1★ 4.9 says: 

  • To achieve a dark colour let the mehendi rest on your hands for at least 2 hours.
  • Don't apply water on mehendi for 5-6 hours.
  • Use mustard oil to remove the dry mehendi.

Deepa's Mehendi★ 4.7 says:

  • For dark colour she should apply mehendi 2 days prior to the main wedding day.
  • In winters, one should apply mehendi during morning time as it becomes freezing cold in the evenings and it's difficult to achieve a good colour payout. So the bride should wrap her hands in something warm or wear woollen gloves before sleeping to get a good dark colour.

Hari Om Mehandi Artist★ 4.9 says: 

  • Before booking the mehendi artist, trial is must. Trial will give the knowledge of mehendi artist's skill and the type of mehendi they will be using, and whether it suits you. 

Bittu Mehendi Art★ 4.2 says:

  • Always ask mehendi artist to use fresh mehendi.
  • Bride should not use any moisturizer and lotion before the mehendi.

Aksha Shah Mehendi Designer★ 4.8 says: 

  • Take 10-12 cloves, put on the roti tawa heat them, take the clove fumes all over the dried mehendi . This gives more heat and hence darker colour.
  • Apply red tiger balm after the removal of the mehendi to get darker colour.

Jyoti Chheda Bridal Mehendi Artist★ 4.8 says: 

  • Waxing should be done 4 days prior to putting the Mehendi, as recent waxing can cause skin to itch while putting the mehendi.

Vinod Mehandi Artist★ 4.5 says: 

  • Always go for herbal and organic mehendi. Chemical mehendi can cause skin itching and also dry the skin.
