: What you seem to be describing is something thats called Peacock
: black hair dye.My sister-in-law is from Yemen and thats what they use
: as "Black Henna".Its stains truly black and is wonderful.Does not
: contain anything that would be of harm and you only need to mix it
: with water.Comes in a very little bottle.She puts a design on and all
: you do is let it dry for about 30 minutes.I'm almost certain by the
: way you described the bottle thats what she used.

Yes, I'm familiar with that brand, and NO it is NOT harmless! It has
PPD. Refer to the first article at the link below, ( Abdulla KA,
Davidson NM, "A Woman who Collapsed after Painting Her Soles"
Lancet 1996: 348: 658
"PPD (used in "black henna") is a potent skin sensitizer; it can cause
angioneurotic edema, collapse, and renal failure in severe cases"
and please note that PPD black hair dye, when used instead of henna,
can cause gravely injure people!
