Mehndi function is one of integral parts of eastern wedding culture. The traditional event is held a few days before the main wedding ceremony and was traditionally held separately for the bride and the groom. Mehndi is a ceremony that is named after henna, a dye prepared from the Lawsonia inermis plant which is mixed into a paste form to apply onto the hands of the bride and groom.
Here are some of the easy to do tips for removing the faded Mehndi stains from your hands and feet at home:
Mix salt with water to form a solution. Now, dip your hand in it and leave it in for 20-30 minutes, and then rub it dry.
Dip cotton in olive oil and wipe it across the henna painted area. To make the process go faster, mix a little salt in the oil before dipping the cotton ball. Leave the oil on for 10-15 minutes and wipe it dry.
