HOW LONG DOES MEHENDI (MEHNDI) STAY ON THE BODY?

When the henna mud is applied, one is directed to keep the mud on the skin overnight, or for several hours. The longer the mud remains, the longer the color will last. It helps to keep the mud a little moist with a mixture of lemon juice and sugar (it smells good, too!). The reddish-brown color of Henna begins to fade within two days. It then changes to a lighter color in six to seven days. It fades gracefully. Mehndi usually stays on the body for fifteen to twenty days, varying with the body heat of each individual.
