Here's how it went with my pregnant friend....
Posted by Erika on June 2, 2002 at 18:03:00:This is the friend who is also black. She came up for a visit so we
could do a belly cast and some henna. The belly cast was a lot of
fun and she loved it so much. If you have any pregnant friends, I
strongly suggest doing one of these for them. It took 3 rolls of
rigid wrap, and cost less than $15 to do.
Anyways...back to henna. I used untereped Tazii henna mixed only
with lemon juice. I used it about 48 hours after making it. I
didn't want to risk a reaction by mixing anything but the lemon
juice with it. It showed up great on the palms of her hands and
bottoms of her feet. It showed up , but not visible at a distance,
on the tops of her hands, wrists, and tops of her feet. It hardly
showed up on her belly at all. I went over the lines again before
she left. We steamed it a little and put a sheet of plastic between
her belly and her maternity pants. She said she'd call me tomorrow
to let me know if it showed up any better. If I knew someplace to
post pictures, I could share some. Anybody know where to post a
couple of pics for free?
