What is henna?
Henna is a natural brown dye made from the dried powdered leaves of Lawsonia inermis, also known as hina, the henna tree, the mignonette tree It can be used to dye hair and skin(temporary tattoos). 

How does Henna work?
Henna Tattoos are applied using a green paste made from the henna powder and a catalyst solution(various recipies). The paste drys on your skin staining the epidermis (upper layer of your skin). The tattoos take 12-24 hours to develop from a ligt orange to a full brown colour. Then it will gradually fade away as your skin naturally exfoliates over approximately 10-15 days. Duration varies from person to person due to skin type, skin condition, body location and lifestyle.

What colour is a Henna tattoo? 
When the dry paste crumles away your tattoo will start out orange and develop into brown over 12-24 hours.
