Hi Lynn

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

As for black 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.
