This is an interesting point. It really goes to show you that just
because someone is from a country that uses henna (or
invented it!) it doesn't mean that he or she is an expert in henna.
Another reminder that we (all people) cannot and therefore
should not judge people based on their race or country of origin,
at least where it concerns our narrow world of henna. If you do
the work and have the interest, you can be an expert in henna
and hopefully no one will say, "well it's not bad for a white girl/15
yr. old/man/woman from Oklahoma/Hispanic etc."
