Securing Your Mehndi with Mefix Tape: A Guide to Darker, Lasting Stains

Mehndi, a delightful part of Indian weddings, symbolizes joy, beauty, and the start of a new life chapter. The secret to making your Mehndi stand out? Keeping the freshly applied henna paste intact. Enter Mefix tape.

Why Mefix Tape?

This self-adhesive fabric tape, usually used for securing dressings and bandages, does wonders for your henna. By holding the dried henna paste securely, it allows the henna dye to penetrate deeper into your skin layers.

How to Use Mefix Tape for Mehndi

Let’s walk through the process, step by step:

Step 1: Let it Dry

First, let your Mehndi dry naturally for a few hours.

Step 2: Taping

Next, cut Mefix tape strips to cover the henna-filled areas. Gently place the tape, ensuring it covers the design without distorting it.

Step 3: Wait it Out

Leave the Mefix tape on overnight or for as long as possible.

Step 4: Removal

Finally, gently peel off the Mefix tape, and scrape off any remaining henna paste with a blunt knife or spoon.

Precautionary Measures

Before using Mefix tape, perform a patch test on your skin. If discomfort arises, remove the tape immediately.
