So you may be wondering, "What is Hennagua?" and "How do you do it?" Well, Hennagua is a term my sister came up with (thanks sis;)). Basically, it's when you use Henna and Jagua together, to give a two-toned effect. I usually do it one of 2 ways.
Method 1, is to do the Jagua first, let it sit on the skin for 3 hours, then wash it off and let the Jagua stain mature (The reason I do this, is so that I can see clearly where the Jagua is, so that I can figure out where to apply the henna). Once the Jagua stain is matured, I then apply the henna and let it sit on the skin for 6-8 hours (most times for me, that is overnight). And of course, once I remove the dried henna paste, I rub in some shea butter, coconut oil, etc. The resulting stain of Method 1 is my favorite, and that is because it yields more defined lines and distinction between the Henna and Jagua. It looks like this (picture left).
I'm still working on different methods that could possibly be better for a Great and Easy Hennagua stain. And I will try to let you all know when I do. And, hopefully if anyone out there is willing to share a better method I'd love to hear it/ see it. Let me know. If you all want to see how to do Method 2 and the 3 different types of results I got from it, watch the video below. Thank you for reading! More posts coming soon (inshAllah).
