Hello all,
I need to relieve some stress.... tonite at work there was a family
that included two little girls. At the end of my sale, the mother
and the girls asked who did my henna. I said i did it for my other
job at which time the little girls said look at my henna.....they all
had "black henna" I told the mother to try to get the stains off as
soon as possible and proceeded to tell them of the harms of ppd. I
swear to god i was as calm as could be. at the end of it all can you
belive the woman looked at me as if i were telling her lies and said
very snottily "we get this done every year" "its perfectly safe" I
told her she didnt have to belive me but just for the sake of her
childrens health to please look it up on the internet. She said well
the guy at the flea market said its safe and its not henna anyhow. I
have spoken to this man before who wont tell me what he is putting on
people and insists (wait til you hear this) that what he uses is a
safe chemical and he wont use henna because when you add coffee or
tea to henna thats what causes people harm because the caffine reacts
badly with the henna on skin and causes people harm. I told her
there is no such thing as black henna anyhow and that anything that
lasted that long was a chemical that is potentially harmful. I
wasnt trying to get her business.....she was a tourist going home
tonite. I cant belive her reaction especially with children that she
wouldnt listen. I just needed to rant because this really ruined my
Thanks for listening.
