: Hiya all,
:
: Sorry I haven't posted for an age - I have been sooooo busy. When
: the henna season is in full swing and the kids are off, and you
have
: just started a new job there isn't much time. Did anyone read the
: article in the Telegraph last Friday? (I wondered if you might
have
: Mark?) It was titled Henna Tattoos and said that a leading
professor
: had published a paper which warned against henna tattoos, that
they
: contain PPD (sounds great so far), and that this caused reactions
in
: 80% of the population and advised that parents do not let their
: children and teenagers have them done. Unfortunately the article
did
: not mention that this was black henna, and that pure henna was
ok.
: Wonderful for trade eh? Fortunately not many of my customers read
: the Telegraph! I wrote them a letter, explaining that their
article
: was very harmful to all of us legit. artists, but I have yet to
: receive a reply! Just wondered if anyone else had read it.
: Something else interesting that I came across the other week when
I
: was out. A teenager wanted a small flower at the base of her
spine.
: When I did it I noticed that she had course black hair growing
there
: which appeared to be in a uniform design (I didn't mention it as I
: didn't want to embarass the girl). She came back a few minutes
later
: because she smudged it and her Dad said (you know what I am going
to
: say) that she had a henna before and then hair started to grow, I
: asked if it was black, they said it was - I explained all about
black
: henna but admitted I had never come across this happening before -
: I've seen people with scars and burns etc, but not hair! Has
anyone
: else ever heard of this? I'd love to know what had been in the
: henna - I could have become a millionaire with a cure for
baldness!!!
: I hope you are all having a good season - I'm quite knackered
now.
: One last thing - I did Mehndi at a Curry Competition last week
(and
: got asked to do a wedding so I was really pleased) and one of the
: judges asked if I would Mehndi at the British Final - in Hull! I
: declined - it's is at the start of September - anyone local who
might
: be interested? I can try and put you in touch.

Hi Lynn

No didnt see the telegraph article....doesnt sound to bad though.

As for black hair....one way of looking at this is that in reality
most black henna is called Khali Mehndi. Which translates to Black
Henna. This is sold as hair dye - so what your seeing is not black
hair growing as a result of the black henna but is a result of the
hair getting dyed by it.

Ive seen it quite a few times....its quite amusing - but then not.

Heh....Mehndi final in Hull? Im from Hull myself. Perhaps i could go
and see whats happening!...see my folks at the same time!!

Nice to hear from you Lynn....nice to see your keeping busy.

Regards

Mark
