4 different methods for tinting your eyebrows

 

1 - Marie-José & Co Eyebrow Henna

Genuine henna eyebrow tint

 

Henna brows are totally hot! We expect that this won't just turn out to be a trend, but that it's here to stay. The advantage of henna is that you can also tint the skin itself. In this way, eyebrows look fuller. The brand Marie-José & Co has genuine henna eyebrow tint available, in 5 colours. You simply mix the henna tint with water, no oxidant is necessary! Consequently, this particular eyebrow tint is exceptionally well-suited for people with a sensitive skin.

Conclusions

• All 4 brands enable you to tint your eyebrows perfectly. With Marie-José Henna you can also tint your skin.

 

• No course is necessary for any of the 4 systems, they are simple to use. Marie-José and Godefroy deliver complete sets. With Refectocil, you need to buy the required products separately.

 

• With the Marie-José Eyebrow Henna tint and the Godefroy eyebrow henna tint, you will always have the precise amount of tint required per treatment. If you don't tint often, these brands are a logical choice.

 

• If you work with colours frequently and/or you tint frequently, then we recommend Refectocil Classic. With Refectocil tint, you will always need to buy a developer separately.

 

• Do you have clients with sensitive skin? Then use Refectocil Sensitive or Marie-José Eyebrow Henna. Make sure that you use the required developer with Refectocil Sensitive. It's a different developer to the one used for Refectocil Classic!



Allergy test

We recommend that you first do an allergy test with your chosen tint. Also read the instructions beforehand.

To test, mix together a small amount of tint. Next, apply it to the inside of your arm, for example. Let the tint dry for the time indicated and remove the excess afterwards. After 24 hours you can see whether an allergic reaction has taken place. If not, you can use this tint to tint your eyebrows, without any worries.
