We are still continuing with our Mombasa series and today am applying henna for the first time I was so excited I wanted to see how the outcome will and let me tell I was more than happy in this vlog am showing you how it all went down.
Henna has become part of Mombasa culture, most culture have embraced the different designs and patterns that originate from different parts of the world.
Every Eid and during wedding women in Mombasa adorn their hands with floral henna patterns, some with black dye & other natural henna.
Designs depend on status, for little girls normally a small simple design pattern, for a single girl the art goes just up to the wrist of the hand whereas for a married women it’s not restricted.
Bridal designs arw different from other designs because it’s the brides first night with her husband she has to look extra beautiful.
It’s believed that a woman must always adorn her handa with henna to look beautiful for her husband so that the husband, looks at her and sees the beautiful & colorful at work.
Different cultures have a specific designs ie Indian Mehndi or UAE Khaleeji style & also Sudanese black dye style.
Process includes mixing the henna powder with water to make paste the n the designer puts the wet henna in a cone which is used to draw with. Once it’s applied on your skin, you wait for about 45min – to an hour for r it to dry afterwards you peel it off.
The prices starts from as low as 300ksh for a smaller design the higher the design the price goes up enjoy love xoxo.
