Mehndi / Henna

Mehndi / Henna

The mehndi applied for weddings is very different from those applied for religious or social festivals like Eids or parties, etc. The wedding mehndi, besides being very expensive (b/w USD 50 - USD 300 +), is also very detailed and may easily consume over 3-4 hours of intense concentration. Even more.

Do they wash off?

Yes, in fact, after application you wash your hands. The colours become sharp at first but as time passes by, it fades. In three days it's almost gone. A chemically active mehndi (not good for health) will survive few more days.
