You must have created innumerable memories together, also there will be many more in the future but there is definitely one such memory which can never forget and is very close to your heart. How about getting that particular memory of you incorporated within your bridal Mehandi design.

Whatever be your liking the one thing that matters the most is how dark has your bridal Mehandi turned out to be. There is no denying that Mehandi application is an arduous task and when you’ve invested a great deal of time and effort into this let that not go in vain by scrapping it off soon without achieving the darkest color.  Here are some of the ways in which you can get the darkest mehandi color. 

1. Wash your hands before applying Mehandi

Before you start with applying Mehandi on your palms, you need to wash your hands with soap and water and tap them dry with a towel. Also, after the wash, make sure that you do not apply any moisturizer or cold cream so that there is no barrier between the skin and the Mehandi design and you get a deeper and darker color. 

2. Use a Eucalyptus oil

Once you are done with washing your hands, apply a good quality eucalyptus oil and let it get absorbed properly before you start with your Mehandi design application.

3. Keep it for long

We know it takes a long time to get the perfect Mehandi design when you have invested so much time into it why waste it by scraping it soon. Keep it for as long as you can to get the darkest Mehandi color. 

4. Generous lemon & sugar

Once your Mehandi is fully dry, before you scrape it off, make a mixture of lemon and sugar and apply it on your Mehandi design with a cotton ball. Make sure you don’t overdo it as it might act in reverse, lightening the color of your Mehandi design instead of darkening it. 

5. Clove smoke

Apart from lemon and sugar mixture, clove smoke works great in darkening the color of your Mehandi design. The smoke produced from heated cloves is enough to darken your Mehandi for long-lasting color. 

Take a few cloves on an iron pan, heat them up and run your hands over the pan. Keep them as long as you can and repeat as long as you can. 

6. Vicks or any other balm

After giving ample time for your Mehandi to dry overnight, scrape it off by rubbing both hands. Once done with the scrapping apply a good amount of Vicks in your hands. It is said to act as a color enhancer to your Mehandi. 

7. Mustard oil

Mustard oil also helps in darkening your Mehandi design. Not only that but any other pickle oil will be able to darken the color of your Mehandi. 

8. No waxing or shaving

The best thing to do is to get all your beauty treatments like waxing or shaving done atleast a day before you get your Mehandi design done as shaving or waxing after Mehandi might peel off the upper layer resulting in a faded look. 

9. Let it dry naturally

Often you might be in a hurry to dry your Mehandi design quickly, but you shouldn’t do that. Trying artificial things to dry your Mehandi will take away the natural glow of your Mehandi. Always wait till your Mehandi dries naturally. 

10. A thin layer of Chuna

Many of you might not know this, but trust me this is amazing. Chuna is usually applied on paan but it can be surprisingly used to darken your Mehandi design. Once your Mehandi is dried, apply a thin layer on chuna on it to darken the color. Remember to soak the chuna in water nicely before applying it. 

11. Cover your hand with bandages

As soon as your Mehandi is a little dry, cover it up with bandages so that your design doesn’t get hampered also it doesn’t come in contact with water ruining the design. 

12. Add tea or coffee to your mehndi mix

Soak some tea or coffee in water and add this mix to your liquid Mehandi. This remedy would give you amazing results. Tea or coffee-soaked mix will give you a darker Mehandi than expected. So, get ready to flaunt your darker Mehandi to all of your office colleagues. 

13. Avoid contact with water

One thing that you’ve got to do is avoid bringing your hands in contact with water at least for a day. Water prevents the color of the henna from penetrating within your skin. So, avoid it wherever you can.

14. Apply 1-2 days before the main event

You probably want the darkest Mehandi design for your wedding. Get your Mehandi design done atleast 1-2 days prior to your wedding day. It usually takes 30-40 hours to get the darkest Mehandi design and get the true color.  

15. Go chemical-free

Natural Mehandilasts longer than chemical ones. Natural Mehandi comes out darker and leaves you with a more beautiful color. 

16. Do not blow-dry

It might appear tempting to dry your Mehandi design soon but it is advised to let it dry on its own. Do not even think of blow-drying as it might lead to bleeding of your Mehandi design and ruin it completely. A bleeding Mehandi is something you would never want, especially when its your wedding. 

17. Avoid direct sunlight

While proper lighting is important for your Mehandi design artist to check her strokes, you must avoid sitting under direct sunlight as it would result in a blurred Mehandi design. 

18. Ask your Mehandi design artist to go for thicker strokes

Always keep in mind fine designs though look pretty on application, does not look striking when they come off. So it is better to go for thicker strokes which are bound to come out darker once dried. 

19. Avoid soapy water 

You anyway need to avoid water for a good 10-12 hours. Even after that, you have to avoid washing your hands in soapy water to avoid getting your Mehandi design faded in portions. 

20. Avoid constant movement

In order to get your Mehandi design dried soon avoid moving your hands up down or sideways as you might end up spreading or spoiling the entire Mehandi design. Please let your Mehandi design dry on its own without any external effort.
