FESTIVALS: TO SEAL OR NOT TO SEAL...?
Good evening, everyone! My name is Vanessa and I work as Henna Designer in Festivals since last year... When I give the Henna to my client, I ask Her/Him to come back in 10 minutes to have it sealed with gel + sugar (then it will stay on the skin for, at least, 3 hours)... I would like to know of You artists, if You also apply the sealant during Festivals? And if You don't, do You prepare the Henna Paste in a different way to prevent it of flaking off...? How? (My Paste starts to flake off after some 30 minutes - even with sugar in it - and it's not enough to give a good result...) Thank You SO MUCH and many hugs from Brazil!

Try some hair sprays

There is a kind of hairspray in the USA that sticks henna down well, doesn't distrub the design, and even smells good.  I don't know what you might have in Brazil, but I'd recommend trying a few and seeing if you can find one that works.
