Glove Your Henna!
You have to do something to keep your henna from falling off the skin while it's doing its job.  You can either stay perfectly still, princess-like, and have people bring you food, entertain you, serve your every whim ... or you can do something to secure your henna and get on with your life. If you want the darker stains of a wrap, but don't like the inconvenience of a mega wrap, you can do a "wrap-lite".

Cotton disposable gloves, marching band gloves, or gardener's gloves all will protect your henna so you can get on with your life and not drop henna crumbs all over the bed or in your keyboard.  Seal your henna carefully, and slide on gloves.  If you want to protect hennaed feet, use an old, loose athletic sock. 

For other body parts, seal your henna carefully, and then wrap in gauze or toilet paper for a light, comfortable wrap.
