She certainly sounds open to discussion, that's very positive.

I approach it as a karma thing.
"Yes, YOUR black stuff is fine, but if people think that black stuff
is fine and learn to look for and expect it, they'll eventually get
the PPD. Of course you didn't give it to them, but you did create
the opportunity for it to happen. Alternately, you can be the one
that says that the black stuff is bad, educated them in the beauty of
real henna, and saves them painful scarring or worse."
I'd be interested in exactly what's in her product. That seems like
such a short time to last. Also, if she claims 7-10 days is 2-3
times as long as henna lasts, she's been buying old, dead stuff, and
in that case, I can see why she prefers a different product. Since
she seems willing to chat about it, which is terrific, introduce her
to a quality henna and tell her about terps. That way she can get
dark, fast designs AND the moral high ground.
