I am happy that you revised it, because that's not the only time I've
heard that story. I'm am personally aware of at least 5 people that
came to me telling me that same story. In addition to this, I've had
people also tell me that they have had 3 or 4 with no problems then
they got one (after having many) and they had the reaction. So the
ones who have had no problems in the past should'nt think they are
immune. Unfortunatly, I've seen alot of chemical burns, alot of
people asking me:"is henna supposed to do this?"
