Creating Stunning Body Art with Jagua and Henna

Welcome to! Are you ready to take your body art to the next level? Combining jagua and henna can create unique, eye-catching designs that are sure to turn heads. In this blog post, we'll explore how to use jagua and henna together, what to expect from the staining process, and tips for achieving the best results.

Why Combine Jagua and Henna?

Jagua and henna are both natural dyes that have been used for centuries to create beautiful, temporary body art. Henna produces a range of colors from orange to deep brown, while jagua results in a dark blue-black stain. By combining these two, you can achieve a stunning contrast in your designs, making them more vibrant and dynamic.

Layering and Application Techniques

  1. Layering Henna over Jagua: Start by applying jagua and letting it fully develop. Once the jagua stain is set, you can apply henna over it. The jagua stain will usually dominate, creating a darker base that can result in a deeper brown or blackish tone due to the henna's influence. The final color can vary depending on your skin type.

  2. Layering Jagua over Henna: Apply henna first and let it develop. Once the henna stain is set, apply jagua over it. The jagua stain will again dominate, often resulting in a darker, blackish stain. The henna might slightly influence the final color, adding a unique touch to your design.

  3. Side-by-Side Application: When applying henna and jagua side by side, you can leave both on for the same duration. Henna typically requires 4-6 hours or more for a dark stain, while jagua needs around 2-3 hours. However, you can leave jagua on for 4-6 hours or longer to achieve a stronger, longer-lasting stain.  

Tips for Best Results

  • Skin Type Matters: Stain development can vary based on skin type, so color predictions aren't always precise.
  • Patch Test: Always conduct a patch test to see how your skin reacts and how the colors develop.
  • Creative Overlapping: Don’t be afraid to overlap applications. Combining henna and jagua can create stunning and unique artwork, with the brown henna and dark jagua stains complementing each other beautifully.
  • Follow Instructions: Adhere to the recommended application times for each product to achieve the best results.
