While researching traditional Arabic and Indian henna, I also came across these henna designs; Moghlai Henna, Pakistani Henna, Moroccan Henna and Khaliji Henna. I’m going to try out some of these for my next blog! (i).”

Beauty expert Simone de Vlaming swears by homemade mehndi pastes and shares her recipe: “To make a natural mehndi paste at home, mix henna powder with lemon juice and a small amount of sugar to form a smooth paste. Apply the paste on your hands in the desired design and let it dry for at least 2-3 hours. Scrape off the dried paste and avoid washing your hands with water for at least 12 hours to allow the color to fully develop.”
