When I was in Egypt I had black henna done- it was not done the way
they do it now, the application was exactly like natural henna, so
I'm still not sure what was in it, but it was certainly not pure
henna, that I do know. Either way, the designs lasted at least two
months, possibly even longer (been a loooooong time!). In fact, I'm
certain it was longer, that it was two months before it started to
fade out. It faded just like henna; you know how when you wash your
hands and maybe scrub extra hard you can get smears left on towels?
It did just that. Like I said, I still don't know that it was PPD, it
might have even been a trick something like the ammonia dip. Then
again, it could have been gasoline. I just have no idea. It was not
the apply, dry and peel in half an hour though. The only reason I
have doubts it was PPD is the application was nothing like what I've
heard of for PPD. But doubtless, in the time since then, perhaps
things have "improved".

: She claims that her black stuff lasts 2-3 times as long as natural
: henna? How can this possibly be true unless she's applying shellac
: or something? I thought a PPD design would last a week or two, and
: good henna applied correctly can last up to 6 weeks.
