There's brow lamination, and then there's henna. What's the difference, you ask? When should each be done? We answer these questions – and more – below.
Brow Henna VS Brow Lamination
Brow lamination and henna are two completely different services. As you might have guessed, brow lamination focuses on the hairs while henna concentrates on subtly dying the skin. Brow lamination lifts and separates each strand, giving it a more fluffy appearance. Henna dyes your skin to create a fuller look.
Both henna and lamination are designed to give a particular end look for the brows. It's essential to go over brow goals before beginning your course of treatment. Are you looking for a more polished, put-together look? Brow lamination is likely the better choice. Do you want your brows to appear fuller and more natural? Henna may be the better option.
Let's take a look at what each treatment can achieve.
Introduction to Brow Henna
What is brow henna, and how does it work?
Brow henna is a form of tinting that dyes the hair and skin. If you are looking for a way to add color, shine, and thickness to your eyebrows, henna may be the perfect solution for you. Henna is available in powder form or as a paste applied with a brush.
Henna is available in both powder and paste form. You can mix the powder with water to create a paste and apply it directly to the skin.
How long does brow henna last?
Henna will last for anywhere from two to four weeks, depending on the type of henna used and how often it is washed.
With PurHENNA, your results will last up to six weeks, with a tattoo effect for up to two weeks.
Introduction to Brow Lamination
What is brow lamination, and how does it work?
Brow lamination is a form of perming that fixes the brow hairs into place. If you are looking to tame, add volume, or change the shape of your eyebrows, brow lamination may be a better choice for you.
If lengthening the brows is on your goal list, InLei® offers a brand of lamination that is scientifically proven to lengthen the hairs of the brows over time - Available on our website.
How Long Does a Brow Lamination Last?

When Should you Apply Lamination - Before or After Brow Henna??
Unfortunately, deciding which brow treatment to give your client is an either-or situation: Lamination or henna. You should never perform the two in one sitting. Keep reading to find out why!
Chemical Reactions in Henna and Lamination Products
The chemicals in henna and lamination products are not meant to be used, nor are they tested in conjunction with one another. There is no way to precisely predict what will happen when you mix the two, and, likely, one or both will not work as intended.
Active ingredients in laminations can react negatively with henna dye, causing discoloration and unpredictable results. There is no knowing what the outcome will be, so it's better to avoid performing both services in one sitting.
Your best course of action is to examine expectations, help determine which treatment will get closest to the dream look, and perform only that treatment.
Can I Perform Henna and Lamination in Tandem?
Henna and lamination should never be performed in the same sitting, but if you wait two weeks after one has been completed, you can apply the other.
This waiting period is necessary to allow the previous treatment to fully settle and avoid any adverse chemical reactions between the two treatments.
Performing lamination and henna in tandem is a great way to achieve your desired look while avoiding any potentially harmful side effects.
