That's fascinating! I think it's possible that this is true; I think
most Moroccan women seek to have lighter skin as it is
considered to be more beautiful. And in general, the people in
Marrakesh tend to have darker skin than the people of the north.
Just the fact that there exist all these methods for making the
henna dark or black goes against what you report. it makes me
think that some people do want black or dark henna. Because
they tend to be dark skinned they want their henna to be darker
so it can be seen more easily.

I have done most of my henna research in the Marrakesh area;
as I do more research in the north I might find out what the
differences are between different regions.
