The final stain. i kept the paste on for for more than 15 hours. i make a high sugar mix. the sugar:henna ratio by weight is 1:2. that means i add 50 grams of sugar to 100 grams of henna. this ensures the henna stays stuck to the skin pretty well. after it was dry ( well a high sugar mix is always mushy but it gets hard after most of the moisture is gone) i apply sugar syrup( again here lemon is not necessary just mixing sugar in water is enough. take sugar in a small bowl and pour enough water as to just cover the sugar. microwave or heat it for a min to dissolve the sugar as much as you can. apply this with a cotton pad. you might get excess of it even if you are careful. just blot the excess off with a tissue or else your design will run. this step ensures that your paste will never ever dry out. if are like me and you like to keep your arms and feet warm under the blanket while you sleep then you need to cover the whole thing up otherwise the sugar will stick to your sheets and blanket. split a cotton pad so that you get a nice thin layer. apply it on the deisgn. cover the design completely. it's easy since the cotton fibres stick to the sugary layer below it and the cotton layers stay stuck and won't budge. after that cover it with a medical tape. make sure you secure it loosely or else you will smush your deisgn. the next day morning i woke up and removed all this( it is very difficult to pull off the cotton fibers from the sugary mix so just scrape as much as you can with a spoon or blunt knife) finally soak the stubborn henna with coconut oil and wipe off with a hard towel so that you get every bit off. . . any questions ? shoot away in the comments. . . 💗💗💗 #devakysdharan

Health warning: . . ladies in the middle east!! please read. . . here is a henna powder that i picked up from oman. it is a very popular brand here. one among the many i can say. . . after testing their cones personally, i would say anybody can smell the petrol/gasoline added to it. my whole house reeked of petrol for two straight days. inhaling petrol or direct contact with skin is dangerous. why do they add petrol to the henna? petrol helps the henna stain the skin faster. also i have noticed that with a petrol mixture the stain oxidises faster. ladies!!! there is no shortcut for good results. for the sake of your health, i suggest you use good quality oils in henna. it will give you the exact same results as petrol or gasoline in your henna paste without the health risk. petrol is carcinogenic. if you expose yourself to it, you are putting your health in grave danger. feel free to 'google' about 'harmful effects of petrol'. then you know what i am talking about. . . it is a humble request. those in my followers list, who are in the middle east, please share this post. i have seen lactating and pregnant ladies use the petrol mixed henna paste. please educate yourself regarding the same. ask for henna without petrol. do not put yourself and your family at risk. . . i wanted to try the henna powder. follow the numbers in the picture. 1. as of now i have only tried ' bhavna' henna powder. i wish to try more and review it for you. 2. the colour of the henna powder was a big turn off for me. i've been using henna for quite a long time and this one was nothing like i have ever seen. then again henna powder comes in different shades of green. i put off judging it until i have tested it further. 3. this picture shows that there is an unusual green tint to the mix that gets absorbed to the tissue. to me it looks like green dye. 4. the fact that green dye has been added became more obvious after 24 hours of mixing. no change in the colour. not even after 48 hours. i tried a bit on my skin. it doesn't even stain good. . . now both the henna cone and the henna powder 'bhavna' was a huge let down. . 💗💗💗 #devakysdharan

Re- uploading this video since so many of you asked me how i do my stippling. . . i have only laid down one layer of the stipples. i wait for it to dry so all the dots don't clump together and do it in the empty spaces again. . . 💗💗💗#devakysdharan

So many things to do. so little time. marriage has made me such a busy human. in between all this i do henna. once when i joined my college i let henna go and when i got back into it i promised myself that i will never do that again. i'm wiser and older now. i would have coped with all the stress much better if i hadn't done that. henna is a therapy. . . a little tip. when i do my humps i draw a straight line so my humps are all in the same level. it's just a faster way to make sure that your humps are evenly lined up. . . ❤❤❤ #devakysdharan

Here it is!!!. after so many requests for a cone rolling video. i have written a bunch of tips below to get cones like the ones i get. . . cone rolling tips: 1. i use a 20- 25 micron thickness cello. i've found they give you the thinnest tip to work with. 2. i cut my cello sheets 9 inches x 6 inches . i've found the rectangular shape to be ideal for me. 3. i roll my cones with an open tip. i used to roll them closed and cut it. i found that cutting the tip of the cones makes the henna paste curl up at the tip. especially if the snipping of the cello at the tip has been done at an angle or so. hence i roll the cones open now. 4. i use a 0.5 mm pencil lead to roll my cones open. i found that 0.5mm measurement was ideal for me. pins of that thickness are hard to come by, so i just use a pencil lead. that process has been demonstrated in the video. you may even use a gauge wire of 0.5 mm thickness or any other thickness for that matter. since i use these leads, i know my cone tips will be the same thickness all the time. i remove the pencil leads before filling the henna. . . these are all the things that i learnt through the years and what i am comfortable with. i remind you. this is not the only way to make a cone but this is how i do it. you can experiment and find out what suits you. may be one year later i will post something that is totally different from what i do today. we all learn things in time. i hope you find my video informative. . . 💗💗💗 #devakysdharan . . #omani #oman🇴🇲 #7ena #falaj #design  #instagram  #khaleejihenna  #sohar #hennatattoo #hennaart #7ina #naturalhenna #henna  #hinna  #muscat #alkhuwair #hennadesigns  #bodyart #india  #gulf  #oman #heena  #7enna #khaleeji  #الحناء #حناء #عمان #الخليجي #خليجي

@hennabydevakysdharan - today i would like to talk about patience with you guys. i believe nothing can be achieved in life without it. everybody aspires to become something great but forget the most important thing. patience!!! in relation with the henna artform (which i believe is why you are in my account) patience is the key to achieve good skills. my initial works are cringe inducing. i'm glad i had the patience to keep at it and work on my skills. it is the mental factor and practice is the physical factor for gaining good skills. it is just not the wait but also what you do during that wait. get your cones out!!! doodle something. give yourself time to grow. you are the only one standing in the way. trust me!! practice everyday. you will be amazed how different your work will be after a week. sometimes it will take years to get into henna professionally. yes!! years. so do you have it in you to be patient for years and still have the same love for the art? . . 💗 💗 💗 #devakysdharan . . #omani #oman🇴🇲 #7ena #falaj #design  #instagram  #khaleejihenna  #sohar #hennatattoo #hennaart #7ina #naturalhenna #henna  #hinna  #muscat #alkhuwair #hennadesigns  #bodyart #india  #gulf  #oman #heena  #7enna #khaleeji  #الحناء #حناء #عمان #الخليجي #خليجي

😍😍 @hennabydevakysdharan - a little practice for me. being in touch with henna every single day can make astounding changes to your work. it is the same for beginners as well as professionals. so whip your henna cones out and doodle something everyday. . . 💗💗💗 #devakysdharan . . . #dsdhennavideos . #omani #oman🇴🇲 #7ena #falaj #instagram  #khaleejihenna  #sohar #hennatattoo #hennaart #7ina #naturalhenna #henna  #hinna  #muscat #alkhuwair #hennadesigns  #bodyart #india  #gulf  #oman #heena  #7enna #khaleeji  #الحناء #حناء #عمان #الخليجي #خليجي
