OFFICIAL SAVANA RAE: HOW TO CARE FOR A HENNA TATTOO AND MY EXPERIENCE WITH IT AT THE ANGEL BEAUTY PARLOUR

HOW TO CARE FOR A HENNA TATTOO AND MY EXPERIENCE WITH IT AT THE ANGEL BEAUTY PARLOUR

No comments:
I am not one of those who would get a permanent tattoo for many different reasons that I feel would need a whole post to explain. However, the way they do tattoos nowadays is on another level, they are a work of art when done by the professionals.

Needles and permanent tattoos are not an option I would consider. 

The next best thing you can go for if you have a similar mindset to me is getting a henna tattoo.

Henna tattoos are symbolic and are known to bring good luck. Before a wedding generally women in some cultures will gather and have a henna event where they will all get tattoos to commemorate this moment.

However, you may wish to get one for special occasions or just because you may be in the mood for one.

Henna tattoos are part of the Arab, Indian and Pakistani Mehndi designs which are applied to hands and feet mainly. You can get them also on other parts of the body.

There are two types of henna colours you may choose from. One being the original henna which is of orange with a red or brown hue. You may also get them in Black but because of the additives they use I don't advise you to get a black one as it's safety is debatable. They now also create other colour variations.

VERY IMPORTANT


Do have a patch test 48 hours prior to having it done and do not rush into it because you may develop allergies to it. Black specifically can create very bad reactions so take caution before making this decision.

I noticed that when I went to this salon, they did not take care to make sure other than simply ask me, rather than having a form signed. 

Never have Henna unless you have had a patch test from that specific place you will get it at because you just never know how your skin can react to the henna they have.

I was adamant to get one done that day. I really love henna tattoos and have had them done many times.


MY CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE

ANGEL BEAUTY PARLOUR CROYDON FOR HENNA TATTOO

I came into the Angel Beauty Parlour in Croydon and was asked what I was after. I asked if there was anyone available to do a henna tattoo. Since I hadn't booked I was asked to come back in 30 mins.

I returned after 30 minutes, while I was waiting I had to ask to see their design book. 

In my opinion, don't even ask for it, there were maybe only 15 pictures in there. The designs were outdated.

I told her that I had a picture I got online of the design I was opting for, she assured me she would be able to replicate it with her own twist. I love the idea of giving an artist creative freedom as it will always look best. I happily agreed.

THE DESIGN


It may have took her no more than 10 minutes for one hand. Which is very quick as it's best when they take their time. It's not like they had customers waiting so I am not to sure as to why she rushed it.

I decided only to have one hand done and you will understand why as soon as I reveal the end result.

THE REVEAL


As you can see, I guess her hand was not steady and she did not have attention to detail as I had to ask her to fill in spots she missed.

She was so lovely I could not bare to tell her I was disappointed with the design she created.

It was like one of those INSTAGRAM versus REALITY situations. 


INSTAGRAM VERSUS REALITY BLACK HENNA DISAPPOINTMENT ANGEL BEAUTY PARLOUR

The Henna they use must be low quality as it was so faint where she applied little of it. The art work was really poor, as you can see she hasn't filled in properly nor created any sort of symmetry. Her hand was very unstable so the lines are mostly crooked and she did smear some unintentionally in areas where there should be none.

So really unfortunately it was a very disappointing experience.

When my loved ones saw it, they couldn't believe this was salon work. It is beyond amateur level.

Just goes to show how talented Henna artists need to be and I think that experience goes a long way too.  

THE COST

It's value was of £15.

In another occasion as soon as I would have seen her way I would have asked to get it wiped off but I really felt sorry for her somehow. I know I should have said something and it's not worth the cost but bless her she was an angel.

HOW TO CARE FOR A HENNA TATTOO

I have devised a useful list on how to care for you new Henna.

These steps will ensure great colour and a longer lasting period. However there are two important variables to consider, one being quality of the Henna they use and method efficiency by which they apply it.

The ultimate guide on how to take care of your henna tattoo

The next day, even though I am highly knowledgable, it already started fading away especially up top as she had used a very little amount of henna and not applied it thick on my skin.

As you may have gathered, doing your research is very important when it comes down to choosing where to have your henna.

Will I be returning to this salon? Definitely not! The quality is underwhelming and worth your time nor money.
