Let us stick to the point!!!

Because now we have moved from dark skin to very dark skin to ebony
black skin, to posting pictures and providing recipes. I state
again, that I am not attempting to change the mind, thinking or
behavior of anyone here. If you can't see it. Then you can't see
it. If you don't understand it. Then you don't understand it.

My posts are and were for people who would come here and read those
posts and interpret from those statements that people of dark skin
can not get visible henna stains. I am sure that each time you
rephrase the statement and add to it that it will be come clearer and
clearer to the reader what you meant to say. That is good. If my
posts have prompted this clarity. That is also good. It is just an
extra bonus and was not the intent of my posts.

My posts have been for people who came to this page and read the
comment that the henna stains would could not be seen...are not
visible or can not be seen from a distance on dark skin. When I
first posted my comments it was prior to all of this clarification
about what was meant and what is in the true hearts and minds of the
people who wrote the original posts. Again, the resulting
clarificatins have been worth the journey. My posts were intended so
that the original posts were not the only voice on the statement.

And look now. We have so many voices. I am not in agreement with
everything you have said here. But, my original point and purpose
has been made and has been taken care of.

This entire line of conversation could best be illustrated with you
and other henna artist recognizing the excellence of the quality of
stains that are obtained on the skin of people of color regardless
of the hue and reflecting that in your work. You state that you
believe it is possible...I think you said except on ebony black your opinion. Then what do you need proven by me.

Just so it is clear. I choose my shot and how I make my point. I
have nothing to prove to you about henna on dark skin. As henna
artist, that is your journey. My results speak for themselves.
There is no magic to it. Excellent henna powder and cajeput. No
mystery at all. That is the point.
