HENNA

Henna tattoos are now being offered at the Spa at Rec at the Cook/Douglass Rec Center. Traditional and modern henna patterns will be available.  All henna is created using USDA organic henna powder from a plantation in Rajasthan, India. Henna is derived from the leaves of a henna plant that contain a natural red dye commonly used for skin and hair. There are no additional chemicals or dyes added so henna is safe for use by all.  Our henna stain lasts a total of 3-4 weeks and will start to fade after 2 weeks of application.  The cost is $5 per henna tattoo.   Appointments are on a First Come, First Serve Basis.  Stay tuned for summer henna hours.
