"White henna": What is it?

(Note: Blue Lotus Mehndi offers traditional (red) henna as well as henna-style body art in any color you like, including glitters and metallics! Call us at 205-378-8058 or email us for details.)


People are starting to talk about "white henna." Just do a Google search and you'll find hundreds of stunning images.


"White henna" looks like an exciting option for darker skin tones as well as for Western-style brides who don't want traditional red henna.

Glitter mehndi: An alternative to traditional henna!

Glitter Traditional mehndi—or henna—is the art of creating a temporary stain on the skin using a paste made from the henna plant. True, natural henna comes in only one color—red/brown—and can last up to three weeks. 

But sometimes, you want something a little special.

"Glitter mehndi" is not true mehndi in that nothing from the henna plant is used, but you can still get henna-like designs using cosmetic glitter or powders on top of liquid adhesive. 

Using this technique, the design is sweatproof and waterproof and, with care, can last several days with minimal wear.

Since its beginnings, mehndi (henna) has been associated with women's rites of passage, especially weddings. Even today, many brides in the Middle East and Southeast Asia wouldn't think of leaving off mehndi when they put on their bridal finery. Mehndi, in fact, is at its most complex and intricate in the dense, lace-like designs of Indian bridal work.

Many charming traditions are associated with mehndi.
