In the world of eyebrows, while trends follow each other in rapid succession, henna brows are here to stay. You may be wondering, what are they exactly and what are the benefits? And what's the story behind Dyotics Brow Henna? Look no further, we're covering it all.
"In the early days of Mrs.Highbrow, about eight years ago, I was looking for a more permanent dye that would stay on the skin longer than regular brow dye," says Ska van Buren, owner and founder of Mrs.Highbrow. "In our salon we had a lot of clients who were overjoyed with their newly dyed eyebrows, but also disappointed because the color came off the skin after only one shower."
This is the case with "regular" brow dye, which only colors the hairs, and you'll only have that beautiful shadow on the skin if it's just been done. And customers wanted that look to last much longer, Ska says. "There were also customers who found it annoying to have to touch up their brows every day. Of course you can always opt for permanent make-up, but not everyone wants that. I wanted to develop something for those women."
From Brazil to India
Ska says, "I soon thought of henna, which I knew from the beautiful decorations on Eastern women, and a long, exciting journey began! So I paid a visit to an Amsterdam shop specializing in pure henna meant for applying skin decorations. There I learned that pure henna must sit for hours and leaves a reddish-brown imprint, which wasn't what I was looking for". So Ska continued her search and ended up with Brazilian henna brands. "But because I don't speak Portuguese and many Portuguese don't speak English, this was a tricky process. After a long search, I ended up with a few Indian producers. Many samples later and endless testing - my arms and even legs were stained for weeks - our Dyotics Brow Henna was finally born."
