Hi there lee,

I've always used lemon sugar in a spray bottle, I have some bottles
from a friend who makes her own natural body products and her body
misters have a lovely fine spray. I would use it and keep q-tips
handy to blot up the occasional blob of lemon mist that pooled, that
way I didn't have to worry about flattening the henna. I like it way
better than cotton, but last year I started to put sugar into my
paste... mix it up into the lemon juice, melt it & add to the henna.
That & some tea tree & lavender oils to terp & scent it & I've
abandoned using any aftercare. I find that adding sugar makes the
henna paste nice & goopy.. and keeps it pliable on the skin. The
henna sticks beautifully, although on a larger piece I would probably
use a mister with lemon sugar just to keep up the moisture, like you
mentioned. I have found that lemon sugar in a spray will attach to
fine hairs & purified water would be the best way to remove it,
picking would just be too painful (I had a client with wispy hairs
down her neck , right above where I did henna on her back.. and
owie!! we didn't pick it off!!!) On hairless and nearly hairless skin
it wasn't too bad.. picking is ok)

Good luck! and please share any tips that you discover along the way!!

Anyone have any idea on how to seal henna on a large area? I'm more
: concerned with keeping the henna moist so it stays on the skin
: and cracks less.
: - My thoughts are that large areas include peach fuzz (or straight
: wookie hair in my family)thus spray skin is not a good idea - I was
: thinking something that can be wiped of with purified water or
: off with the henna?
: Anyone tried using the lemon sugar in a spray? Any other thoughts?
: Thanx - lee
