Hi! Glad you're posting! Welcome to the scaryexciting world of the
professional henna artist.
I use rolled cones to apply henna, each holding 10-15 grams of
paste. If I'm only doing armbands and smaller stuff, I'd plan on
bringing one cone for every 25 or so people. You will have extra at
that point, which is good if the cone breaks/clogs/hole closes/gets
stepped on as will eventually happen, if not at this gig, at
another. Also you can sell any unused cones you have at the end of
the gig.
Mixing your own henna is actually pretty easy as long as yuo already
know the consistency you need from working with a good quality
paste. As for recipe, the link below will take you to the recipe
page on my site. I use the basics, as most of us do. Lemon juice,
sugar or honey, and a terpene-rich essential oil.
Supplies- yes, I sell stuff :) I also use the powders, oils, and
applicators I sell on a regular basis on myself and clients, so I
know they are good. Many other people on here sell good stuff, too,
so look around and pick a color and price you like. Many of us who
have more than one kind of powder offer a try-a-whole-bunch-of-stuff
option where you can try several different kinds of powder without
committing to a whole lot of something you're not sure of. If you
want to stick with paste for a bit, I also have fresh-made paste for
sale at very reasonable prices.
Above all, keep posting! We love to hear success stories and can
sympathize with the rest.
Lauren
