1. WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE APPLYING MEHENDI-
Make sure you wash your palms thoroughly with soap. Also don’t apply any cream or lotion if you are getting your hands done with mehendi. This step will help your palms get a darker shade of mehendi.
2. GO FOR EUCALYPTUS OIL-
This oil not only has a lovely fragrance but also helps darken the colour of mehendi. Apply eucalyptus oil after to your hands and feet after washing them.
3. LET IT DRY NATURALLY-
I would say that let your mehendi get dry naturally. DO NOT use a blow dryer because blowing air can smudge the design and waste all the time you spent in getting it applied.
4. TRY LEMON AND SUGAR-
Mix 1 tbsp sugar in a small bowl of lemon juice and apply on mehendi once it has dried and when you feel like its flaking. This mixture of lemon and sugar will help you out. You just have to apply this mixture with the use of a cotton ball on your dried mehendi. But NEVER overuse lemon juice as it might end up lightening the colour. The moment it dries up, repeat again.
5. VICKS OR PICKLE OIL WILL HELP-
Vicks provides warmth, and the mehendi gets darker when heat is provided to it. Gently rub your palms to remove the mehendi and then apply some vicks or some pickle oil to your hands.
6. HOT CLOVES-
Take a pan and heat the cloves about 10-12 minutes. Make sure your palms absorb the fumes of the cloves as it will provide heat to it. It is undoubtedly one of the best six tricks for darker mehendi.
TIP- Any sort of contact with water at least for 24 hours or else it will ruin the henna getting darker. So stay away from water for at least 7-8 hours after application.
