Henna from Saudi Arabia

17 Jan 2010

Haj season is over and Henna is often given as a souvenirs to relatives and friends.

Henna is a colouring made from Henna leaves. Traditionally, you pluck some Henna leaves, pound it and add vinegar/oil. Place the pounded mould on your hair or fingers, leave it overnight for long lasting effect.

This Henna is handy, it comes in tube form, like a tooth paste, just black-red colour. You squeeze small amount on your fingernails, let it dry 30 minutes to one hour. Wash it off - simple!
