: Hello,
: I am an athlete (tennis player) and am wondering how henna holds up
: in such conditions. Will holding the tennis racquet rub and smear a
: set design? Will a lot of sweating affect the henna?

Sweating will help the henna get darker faster and therefore last
longer. Also, because you're an athlete, you probably have a faster
metabolism, which will mean a warmer body temp, which will also help
the henna. You won't want to apply a design and then do anything
that will smear or dislodge it while the paste is on, but after the
paste is off, it's fine. If you use the racquet a lot, it may cause
the design to wear faster in places, especially with a terped or
oiled mix as opposed to a traditional blend, but otherwise you should
be fine.
