The excitement around Eid is on the rise as we enter the last few days of the Holy Month of Ramadan. Among all the traditions surrounding the Islamic holiday, the practice of decorating the hands with Henna is the most looked out for. Every year, women in the region line up at henna salons to get their palms and the back of the hands decorated with the plant-based dye and the results are always visually stunning.
Henna is rooted deep in our culture where it is seen as a symbol of good luck and celebration. Bold designs resembling tattoo patterns are the most loved right now for Eid in the Middle East.
Henna along the knuckles, fingers and definitely the back of the palm of the hands with straight lines and symmetry is a big thing.
designs that look like jewelry, chains, and rings are also very popular at this time of year.
Tip:things you can do to make sure the henna has a rich color payoff and lasts long. Keep your skin moisturized, this really brings out the color.
oil is great to add once the henna has crumbled off. The warmer you are, the darker the henna gets, so body temperature plays a big part and, of course, warmer countries. For the color to be the richest on the day of Eid, the timing of the henna application must also be kept in mind.one to two days before Eid. Henna usually takes 48 hours to reach peak color, so this is the best time to do it and ensure it looks fresh for your celebrations.
