Jamila henna powder is ready to use right out of the box. If you do not have Jamila, then you must sift the henna powder before use. Visit a photo gallery of bridal henna tattoo using Jamila henna powder. These are a few from the 2009 gallery.
For bridal henna without Jamila, then II sift the henna powder, use a mortar & pestle to bruise it to help give good color and of course a super fine powder. I may sift the henna powder twice more (through a stocking stretched over a little bowl) if the henna is very twiggy.Be sure to visit the Henna Blog for the latest photos.
Here are some photos of bridal henna tattoo in process. I learned a lot doing this practice design! This is a page of useful tips for bridal henna. (Click the photos to enlarge the view.)
