I understand your concern in regards to protecting your
livelyhood,especially when raising children. I also know a little of
the pressures of useing black dye with chemicals added like the one
you use with PPD in it. Most people in this country are more
accustomed to seeing a black tattoo line on the skin and have little
or no refferance of the red brown color that is real henna. Also they
are sometimes impatient and want immediate results. Once a long time
ago I had some henna sent to me that was supposed to be black. It had
some small white crystals in it that looked like salt. I tied to sift
it and mix it and the smell of it made me feel weird and it burned
the skin on my hands. I knew nothing of the dangers of these
additives and had not yet heard of PPDs ,but I immediately threw it
all away.
I know its a hard thing to choose to do. I would have been so busy
and had a line at my booth a mile long if I had a sign saying "black
henna" For me there was no choice, I couldnt Knowingly harm others or
myself for the sake of vanity.The prospect of all the riches seems a
temporary thing that could very easily backfire and come back to
huant any person who is useing a known toxic poison, that is not for
use on skin. If you honestly dont beleive the photos and info on the
black Henna (BLACK DEATH as it is also called as henna is not black).
Then scroll down and read some of the testimonials from people
writing in to get help after being burned and how they have suffered
from scarrs and pain .
It is not something we on this forum have created to ruin yours or
anyones business.I am very concerned however that if the people like
yourself who use The Black Death dont stop you may take us all down
with you . I have children too. I have put alot of time into learning
to make strong henna paste that is pure and alive and leaves a
beautiful stain in skin. People do listen and they do learn that
henna is different then tattoos. I have only lost like 6 customers
(out of the probably 1000s) in three years of doing Mehndi due to it
not being black like they see on the movie stars. Please for you and
your childrens sake consider what the reprocussions may be if we are
not wrong.
If you want help and recipees and support with doing the art of Henna
& Mehndi stick around and write again.
Blessings to you
