    Mehendi is such that it tends to get absorbed into the skin to such a degree that it is really tough to get it to disappear quickly!

    Nevertheless, you could try these steps:
    1. When having a bath daily, use a loofah. This is a circular piece of rough fibre with which you can scrub your hands.

    2. After your bath, take a swab of cotton & soak it in a katori of olive oil (just enough to soak the cotton completely). Place the cotton on your hands and swipe it to and fro. Do this regularly every few hours throughout the day. Do not use water at all.

    3. Important Notes:
      Some people recommend using bleach, various types of creams and even kerosene. However, I would not advice you to use these if you are having a dry and rough skin and are suffering from any type of skin allergies.

      Olive oil is the best to use simply because it does not have any side effects as such & hence is considered safer to use than other things. In fact, it helps to moisturize your skin.

      When people come at you with their worst, you should come at them with your best (advice given to Selena Gomez by her mother, quoted in Time magazine.)

    Dear member,
    To remove mehenthi, you can try the following simple steps:
  • You can apply bleach on your hands, and allow it to dry completely and then rub your hands for few minutes to get rid off , which will result in fading of the color of the mehndi well.
  • You can try to remove mehendi by dipping your hands in the warm water for few minutes and then rub hands to get rid off.

  • You can take bath in a pool where chlorine is added which will help you to fade mehenthi quick. You can try this in your home also by taking vessel containing water and adding chlorine and then dipping your hands in it. Don't follow this if you feel skin irritation.

  • Frequent wash of hands for more than 10 times in a day will result to great extent.

  • You can apply toothpaste on the mehendi and allow to dry, then rub the hands to diminish the colour of mehenthi.

  • Use paste called baking soda which is mixed with lemon. Apply this paste on your hand in order to fade the mehendi. But this can make damage to your skin. So apply very little paste and wash it thoroughly after drying.

  • For best practice, use your hair conditioner when taking bath.

  • Try with olive oil. Put few drops on your hand and gently rub your hands to fade colour of mehenthi.

  • Hope this will help you!

    It is more than enough to wash your hands with a soap or handwash frequently to get rid of mehendi in your hands. Even the contact with detergents while washing clothes makes the mehendi fade
