Locate your nearest Jacuzzi and spend LOTS of time there! Use hand
sanitizers .. they seem to eat up henna. The combination of bleaching
and exfoliation help henna vanish.

IN the future to avoid this problem ....

If you are a moisty person you might have perspired during the night
and that would have made the design disperse. If you're a moisty
person, wrapping just may not work for you.

If the henna wasn't perfectly dry before you wrapped that would have
made the design disperse. A blow dryer helps that.

I always had better luck with New Skin if I was doing an overnight
wrap, and I laid down PLENTY of TP under plastic.... that seemed to
deter dispersing and smearing.

However, you can get the same dark results with alternate steaming and
heating and have greater control over fuzzing.

Or ..... go over to terped hennaes, and skip the wraps. That's a very
different technique, and though it certainly eliminates the smearing
problem, it has other challenges. You always have to choose the
technique that is most suitable for the situation.
