In reply to: people who wont hear..........(small rant) posted by Heather@Amber Lotus Henna on July 9, 2002 at 08:03:31:

I sympathize with you. When I try to tell people the dangers of black
henna and ppd most of the time I will give a short explanation. I
have had people just mumble and go yeah ok, like they don't care and
don't want to hear it and I have had people not care and tell me
their friend had the black done or they had the black done and
nothing bad happened to them. It makes me so angry.

I'm also angry that the people at the local health food store sells
colored henna and insists it's natural. I tried to tell one of the
workers. They told me we have used it for years and it's as pure as
you can get.
Still I tell as many people as possible about ppd and the dangers of
black henna.

: Hello all,
: I need to relieve some stress.... tonite at work there was a
: 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
: had "black henna" I told the mother to try to get the stains off
: 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
: belive the woman looked at me as if i were telling her lies and
: very snottily "we get this done every year" "its perfectly safe"
: 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
: the guy at the flea market said its safe and its not henna anyhow.
: have spoken to this man before who wont tell me what he is putting
: 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
: 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
: wouldnt listen. I just needed to rant because this really ruined
: night.
: Thanks for listening.
