No disrespect intended, but what are your qualifications to know that
this product contains nothing harmful?

Please read the link that Catherine provides below to gain a better
understanding of just what PPD is (a liver damaging toxin) and what
it can do (leave scars and lifelong sensitisation). All hairdye
contains warnings. The FDA demands that they do by law. They warn
against application to and/or near eyes and they warn against getting
the dye on your skin. They tell you to wear gloves.

You are very lucky to have never had a reaction to the stuff or know
anyone within your family to have had a reaction, but do you really
want to take the chance? Isn't your health more important than
someone else (that probably isn't qualified) telling you "yeah, it's
safe, nothing ever happened to me!" ? There are some people in the
world who continue to smoke, drive drunk and continue other harmful
activities because 'nothing bad ever happened to them.' No doubt you
don't care about those people, but certainly you treasure your own

There is NO SUCH THING as 'black' henna. Adding hair dye to henna
does not make it such. It just makes it an illegal harmful compound
that has actually figured in people's death and left children
scarred. That isn't something that sounds truly wonderful to me.

Hey by the way, Yemen has some GREAT henna- gorgeous red colour. Why
screw with God's plant??


: 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
: 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
: 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.
