Black Henna Warning
Share on Facebook
So-called "black henna" is dangerous. It is actually not henna at all, but rather a petrochemical based, highly concentrated black hair dye known as Para-phenylenediamine (PPD for short).
It can lead to chemical burns and scarring. It is bad news.
Please use safe, natural henna free of PPD and other harmful chemicals!
We are happy to help you with mixing your own natural henna to the darkest possible color. Please feel free to contact us with questions!
Here is a photo and note from our friend Alia Khan:
