When I first started the quest for making dark henna paste I read
somewhere in the vaults of this forum of useing brass bowls to mix
So I searched high and low and finally found one. I was thinking
that there may be a reaction with the henna or the acid mordant
(lemone juice) but for me there was no difference at all from mixing
in ceramic or plastic.
I know for hair do not use metal. did once in a past life before
mehndi and it turned my hair trout green. NOT a desired shade and I
soon had lots of skinhead friends in SF!!

: I have noticed in a few postings and henna websites people
: not to mix or use henna in a metallic bowl, can anyone please tell
: why this is and what proof is there to back up these claims.
