These hand-made heat-sealed cones hail from the pacific northwest. Each cone can last several years, which makes them a great solution for henna artists looking to decrease their footprint. Using a heat sealed cone is slightly different from a traditional hand-rolled cone. Remember to use your fingers to move the paste, rather than the muscles at the back of your hand. You'll need less pressure, and maybe a little more patience to get the hang of this unique and eco-friendly tool.
Trim the tip of your resuable cone to open a tiny hole. Fill the cone about halfway with henna paste, using a carrot bag. Leave the end open or fold closed with a binder clip. Start creating! The cone has a "break-in period" while the shape of the henna is more akin to a ribbon than a tube. You can use your fingers to gently stretch and massage the seam and over time the shape with relax. Wash with warm water and soap in between uses.
I have bought these before and this time I ordered two bags. I really love them! The "bad" thing is that I only like to use them for about 3 shows, then I order new ones. I feel like the bottom hole starts to stretch at that point. However, with the cost vs. the usage, this is well worth it! Also, cut the bottom carefully, you can always cut more, but you can't paste it back on.
