Are henna eyebrows harmful?

Eyebrows are an essential part of our look. They give expressiveness to the face and are even capable of modifying the shape of the face. This is why more and more men and women are turning to methods such as henna to fill in those areas that lack density. To what extent are these types of techniques beneficial? Are henna eyebrows harmful?

In the blog de Hospital Capilar, a clinic specialized in medicine and hair surgeries, we tell you everything you need to know about henna on the eyebrows.

What is henna eyebrow coloring?

Henna is a plant from which the reddish pigment used for coloring eyebrows or body tattoos, which receives the same name, is extracted. This is mixed with chemicals to achieve different shades and to be able to adjust the henna to different colors of hair.

The application of henna on the eyebrows must be carried out by a beautician specialized in this type of technique, since henna requires a few previous steps to prepare it. In addition, if what is sought is a natural finish, a gradient should be practiced during the application of henna on the eyebrows. This is somewhat more complex, so it is recommended that it be carried out by a beautician.

Duration of henna on eyebrows

The results offered by henna eyebrow coloring are semi-permanent.. It lasts approximately one week, although depending on the henna applied, it can last up to 6 weeks. It should also be borne in mind that in the summer you sweat more, which directly affects the henna eyebrows, considerably reducing the durability of the results. In addition, the baths in the beach and the pool are totally contraindicated.

As you can see, filling your eyebrows with henna it is not a definitive method for the lack of density in the eyebrows and, therefore, we must resort to this technique continuously.

Are henna eyebrows harmful?

Thinking of resorting to this method to simulate density in the area but are you worried about possible side effects? The truth is nothing to worry about at all, since when asked if henna eyebrows are harmful, the answer is no.

However, our doctors indicate that, as can occur with the topical application of any other product, there may be some cases of allergic reactions to the henna itself. In these cases we may experience sensations of itching, burning and redness in the area. This is why it is recommended that, before applying henna to our eyebrows, we do it on a small area of ​​skin to verify that we do not experience any adverse effects.

In short, are henna eyebrows harmful? No, although it is true that it has an important disadvantage: the durability of its results. Currently we can find other types of methods and techniques with which to recover the density of the eyebrows with permanent results, such as eyebrow grafting.

Eyebrow graft: the ultimate solution to lack of density

The eyebrow implant is one of the most demanded techniques today to restore lost hair in the area. This is mainly due to the fact that its results are forever and natural, since it is the patient's own hair that is implanted and not a simulation with ink.

It is an outpatient surgery, approximately 5 hours, minimally invasive. In it, a small area of ​​the lower part of the neck is shaved from where the hair is extracted, which is later implanted in the hairless gaps of the eyebrows. Once the intervention is finished, the patient begins the postoperative of an eyebrow implant where a series of medical standards must be met to guarantee the best results. During this process, a personalized medical follow-up is carried out, as well as the pertinent cures, to control the evolution of the implanted hair at all times.

The results of the eyebrow graft are definitively given one year after the surgery. However, once the first 6 months have passed, great changes in the look can already be experienced.
