Peace & Light Henna Gods & Goddess,

This post is all about the Jagua & Henna stain, before and aftercare! If you're new to this world of jauga or henna, or just wanting to freshen up your knowledge before booking an appointment with us, I highly recommend taking the time to learn about each of our products so you can make the best decision possible for your needs. Jagua and Natural Henna not only have very different stains, but they also require different aftercare (ex: drying time, what to wear, how far out to book event…etc.) to get the darkest and longest lasting stains. 

 

 

Jagua Before & Aftercare

 

 

 

 

 

Book 24-48 hrs BEFORE event

  • Stain starts out as a light grey and develops to a deep dark bluish stain 1-3 days after application. 

  • Darkest on palms of hands and feet.

  • Lasts about 1-3 weeks with proper aftercare.

  • The longer the gel is left on the skin, the darker it will be.

  • Color of stain varies between individual body chemistry, temp., aftercare, and ph levels.

  • Jagua is a citrus fruit, so it's not recommended for anyone with a citrus allergy or eczema.

  • The stain fades naturally as the skin is rejuvenating, so keep skin hydrated using natural oils.

 

 

BEFORE CARE

  • Remove hair from desired area for seamless application.

  • Make sure skin is clean and free from oils and lotions.

  • Gently exfoliate area to remove dead skin cells.

  • Dress accordingly because the design will be wet when you leave.

AFTER CARE

  • Jagua is a citrus fruit, so it's not recommended to use if you have citrus allergies.

  • The gel dry time varies depending on design size.(1-3 hours)

  • The longer you keep the Jagua gel on, the darker the stain will be.

  • It's recommended to leave gel on for 4-6 hrs. minimum.

  • Wash off the Jagua thoroughly with warm water and soap after it completely peels. 

  • Jagua stains extremely quick, so you have to be very careful!

  • DO NOT: Touch, smear, or sleep with design (if sleep use a sock).

  • CAUTION: It will stain anything it touches before you wash it off.

    • On some individuals, when fresh Jagua body art is exposed to heat within the first 48 hours, it can actually lead to a reaction.

    • In the event that you have a bad reaction to Jagua, you can use hydrocortisone or any other natural remedy to relieve the itchiness which is usually not severe.

Henna AFTER CARE

  • Stay warm~henna

  • Heat keeps the henna from drying out and allows it to penetrate your skin better. Stay warm with layering clothes, getting some sunlight, or applying direct heat. Henna is a natural sunblock and will create an inverse tan of design.

  • Heat up cloves in a pan or boil them in water, and place exposed design above the steam or smoke for 30 seconds at a time. Take breaks as needed if it gets too hot and be cautious of melting the henna. Typically used for hands, and no more than a few minutes.

  • Once the henna or jagua is removed, apply after care body lotion, or on the go oil to the design. Applying after care body lotion, or on the go oil before showering or going to the beach/pool will help repel water as well.

  • Aftercare spray is recommended!
