In INDIA, they have something known as the ‘Mehndi Night’ the day before the wedding, a very famous ancient celebration. It is believed to bring luck and beauty to the bride.

The ‘Mehndi Night’ is common among Hindus, Muslims, Sikh and Jewish brides. And now with La Oja you have the opportunity to get a Henna tattoo too in Bogotá. If you any where else in Colombia, write to us and we will see how we can get to you.

Depending on where the Henna is grown the dye varies.  Henna in India, from the Rajasthan area often has reddish tones, the South tends to be more brown siena, the Yemenite and Moroccan tend to very dark browns. But the colour also depends on the climate you are in. Hotter the weather richer and darker the colour. The dye does not penetrate the same way throughout the body, the darker colors and durable are obtained in areas of the body with thicker skin and less fat, as are the palms of the hands and feet.

Henna has properties like:

  • Is not a permanent tattoo.
  • It remains only on the surface of the skin.
  • Henna does not hurt the skin, instead of refreshing.
  • Henna drawings while away the layers of the skin is exfoliated.
  • Henna is temporary and not permanent, it can last at least 2 weeks.
