Trick to extend the longevity of Brow Henna

18.05.2024 - Lisa Sazonova

Achieving stunning and long-lasting Brow Henna look can seem hard, but with the right preparation and care, it's easier than you think! At Supercilium, we know how important it is for you and your clients to enjoy flawless brows that last. In this blog post, we'll explore how long Brow Henna typically lasts and share our pro tips for extending its lifespan with Prep Peel Gel, a must-have product that can work wonders in ensuring your clients' brows stay flawless for longer. Let's get started!

Brow Henna basics

Brow Henna is a very popular beauty treatment known for creating bold, long-lasting colors. Usually, it can last up to 2 weeks on the skin and 4-6 weeks on brow hairs, depending on various factors. We will tell you about a few key factors that can influence how long brow henna lasts on your client's skin and brow hairs.

Factors affecting Brow Henna longevity

  • The longevity of Brow Henna can vary based on a few things: the quality of the Henna used, the client's skin type, and their aftercare routine.
  • It is no news that every client has a different skin type. Clients with oily skin may see shorter-lasting results, while dry skin could experience a longer wear time. Also, Brow Henna tends to look like it lasts longer on lighter skin tones than darker ones. Thanks to the contrast of the color the skin stain is better visible. However, the longevity is just as long.

  • Then there's lifestyle. If your clients are big fans of swimming, saunas, or working out, they might notice the color fading more quickly. Too much sun exposure can also speed up the fading process.

  • Aftercare is often underrated. Keeping the brow area free of harsh cleansers and exfoliants can help maintain the color. Offering your clients some gentle, nourishing Brow Care products to use on their eyebrows can really make a difference. For example the Nourishing Defense Balm, or the Nourishing Elixir.

Anyway, taking proper care of the brows after the treatment can make a big difference in how long the color lasts despite these factors.

What is Brow Exfoliation and why is it important?

Brow exfoliation is simply gently scrubbing away dead skin cells and impurities from the skin around the brows. This helps create a smooth, clean canvas for your brow treatments. We use gentle exfoliators to penetrate deep into the pores and unclog them, giving the skin a fresh start.

It is definitely one of the most effective ways to clean the brows and the brow area. The cleaner the brows and especially the skin below, the better the Brow Henna can penetrate into the skin to create that beautiful skin stain that we all love.

Pro Tip #1: Exfoliation helps reduce the risk of ingrown hairs and keeps the skin around the brows looking healthy and radiant!

Meet the Prep Peel Gel

Let's talk about the star in the world of Brow Care: The Prep Peel Gel. It is a gentle exfoliator made just for brows and the surrounding area. The Prep Peel Gel contains 4% AHA, which dives deep into pores to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells. A super clean canvas sets the stage for longer-lasting brow henna and other brow treatments, which is exactly what we want, right?

What is AHA?

AHA, or Alpha Hydroxy Acid, is derived from sugary fruit and works wonders at unclogging pores and smoothing skin. Think of it as starting with a fresh, clean slate — your Brow Henna will go on and stay put so much better. And let's be honest, who doesn’t want results that last?

Pro Tip #2: Exfoliating can make the skin more sensitive to the sun. So, make sure to protect your clients' brows with our Nourishing Aftercare Balm with SPF 30, especially 48 hours after Brow Lamination and 24 hours after Brow Henna.

How to use the Prep Peel Gel

Here’s how you can add Prep Peel Gel into your Brow Henna treatments for smoother, longer-lasting Brow Henna results:

Step 1: Start by cleaning the eyebrows with the Pro Cleanser on a cotton pad. Gently go over the eyebrows to remove any makeup, oil, or dirt.
Step 2: Next, squeeze a pea-sized amount of the Prep Peel Gel onto your hand. Dip a microbrush in the gel and apply it evenly over the brows.
Step 3: Massage the gel gently into the hair and skin using your fingertips for 15-30 seconds. Make sure the gel reaches the skin underneath the brow hairs.
Step 4: Remove the Prep Peel Gel using the Pro Cleanser and a clean cotton pad. This ensures a fresh, smooth canvas for your next steps.
Step 5: Now, you’re ready to continue with your chosen brow treatment—whether it’s Brow Henna, Liquid Dye, or Brow Lamination.

Important to note: This blog post is about a trick to extend the longevity of Brow Henna, but you can definitely use the Prep Peel Gel with the Liquid Dye! Just follow the same steps as with Brow Henna.

The importance of aftercare

Aftercare is key to making sure your clients get the most out of their Brow Henna treatment. Share these easy aftercare tips with them to help keep their color vibrant and long-lasting:

  • Keep the brows dry: Let your clients know to avoid water and steam for at least 24 hours after their treatment. This means steering clear of steam rooms, saunas, and sweating too much.

  • Be gentle when cleansing: Suggest using non-abrasive cleansers around the brow area to help preserve the color and avoid harsh products.

  • No scrubbing: Tell your clients to avoid scrubbing or using harsh tools on their brows. Gentle cleansing ensures a longer-lasting color.

  • Hydrate carefully: Moisturizing the brow area can help keep it soft and protected. Recommend a nourishing balm that won't disrupt the henna.

  • Stay out of the sun: UV rays can cause Brow Henna to fade more quickly, so remind your clients to protect their brows when they're out and about. Remember, offer them the Nourishing Defense Balm with SPF 30!

  • Hands off: Advise against picking, touching, or pulling at the eyebrows, as it can lead to premature fading. Your fingers can transfer oily moisture to the brow area, and regularly touching them can make the color feed more quickly. So yes, stay away with your fatty fingers!;)

  • Schedule follow-ups: Encourage your clients to book touch-ups as needed to keep their brows looking their best.
