Somehow I ended up getting henna done right before my flight to the US. I entered the salon and was taken to the henna room where three kind Indian women drew on me very quickly with little icing looking things that were filled with this mud stuff. They finished drawing without any pattern or anything in about 15 minutes. Then I had to sit for about 30 minutes without moving to wait for it to dry. Then I could go, but I had to leave it on as long as possible for the rest of the evening to get the color the darkest possible.
