Experiment With Red Mehndi

Aloha Galz!!
Today I'm gonna show you what dark red chemical-ed mehndi can do.
Yes! I did this experiment on my hand. I thought what could happen for applying it only for one time and on back of my palm where usually normal mehndi do not give much color as compared to the color on palm.
This is the cone which I got in Rs. 10/-
It has no company name written on cone.
Here's the story begins -
I started making design on back of my hand as you can see in picture below. And yes if you like than you can also see the patterns of design.
After few minutes of applying I started feeling some sensation on my hand. I don't know what it was but it was tolerable. You can also see the orange color bleeding from mehndi on my hand.
This is the example of lacking of alertness with this cone -
You've to be alert while making the design because if by mistake you have drawn something else or a zig zag line, it will instantly start showing the color on your hand. You can see clearly a light red line in picture below. I draw this line mistakenly and remove it within 5 seconds but the color was there and I couldn't remove it.
One more thing which is very interesting with this red mehndi -
You don't need to apply lemon sugar mixture on mehndi because when it starts drying it removes like peel-off. Yes, you can see the peel-off dried mehndi in below picture.
And here comes the color -
It gives very dark red color, perfect for any festive occasion or any other function you prefer to apply this red mehndi. And yes it's also good for making tattoos. I'll make few tattoos and show you soon.

But the color starts fading off from 4th day and completely vanished after 10 days.

Have you tried this kind of chemical mehndi before? How was your experience?

  6. @ Tania - Thanks a ton sweety even I'm not trained in this but its just comes right when I do it. :)

  7. @ Vale - Thank you sooooooooo much dear for liking my blog.

  8. I loved the thought of sharing this experience and loved the design. I have tried the rs 10 / 25 waala cone a couple of times and the experience was just the same. 3-4 days after the application, the colour tends to peel off on rubbing... that is weird and puts me off. Baaki for temporary application, once in a while i manage with it. Think i shouldn't, but how'd we know if it has chemicals/ not?

  9. @ Anuradha - Thanks a bunch Anu. Yeah for temporary application it's fine. It has chemicals dear because the way it gives sensation on hand and the color pay off. I've also used henna leaves to see the color, it gives natural orange color and also gives cooling effect and every cone has chemical in it but this one is much more chemicaled. I've also black mehndi which is more chemicaled as it gives black color on hands so now you can differentiate between normal and chemicaled. :)

  10. Your mehendi design is lovely! And I agree that the color at the back of the hand is typically paler in comparison to the palm. I haven't tried (not even heard about the red mehendi!) but looks like a good thing to try.

    Did the "sensation" go away after the mehendi washed off from your hand? I'm bit sensitive to chemicals, that's why I'm asking.

  11. @ Nadia - Thanks swts. Try to find it in your city.
    Enter my giveaway if you win I'll also send you this mehndi cone with the prize.

    And the sensation go away within 2 or 3 mins of applying mehndi.

  12. Hey Vertika...lovely blog you have...sorry to have missed your blog giveaway :(

    I have tried this mehendi for a couple of weddings...and I have very sensitive skin! I felt a mild tingling sensation when I first applied and then it started to itch. I removed it immediately after, haven't ventured after that last scare!
