I used to live in Hull!
That's hilarious.
Good thing they have the curry fest there - makes sure that it's
never dull in 'ull!
Jeez, that brought back memories!



: : Hiya all,
: :
: : Sorry I haven't posted for an age - I have been sooooo busy.
: : 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
: : 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
: : 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
: : 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.

: : TTFN

: : Lynn
: 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
: 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
