states, "henna powder that came through your hands." This was a
post in response to Denise's post in which you refer to me by name,
Is this a mistake and you thought you were writing to me when you
made the statement about "came through your hands." Or was this a
statement to Denise?
I can't find record of ever selling her or sending her and Sarah.
But the other issue is one of hair henna that I sell as hair henna
being tested with the criteria for body art quality henna. Some
people may sell it that way. But if someone bought Sarah from me
then it was sold to them as hair henna. That distinction is very
important in the controls. What is the exporter or supplier selling
the henna powder to be used as? If for hair henna, I would expect
one set of criteria. If for body art quality, I would expect another
set of criteria. If for fabric dye perhaps even a different set of
criteria. And if with the same henna powder, different suppliers are
selling it for different purposes then the distinction and
identification of the source becomes important. This also makes who
these samples come from important as well. A hair henna sample sent
to be part of a body art quality henna powder analysis can skew what
people think they are looking at and what the results indicate.
There is no need to feedback to any exporter about a product he/she
sold as a hair product if the supplier or the customer chose to use
it for body art henna.
My hair henna is just that and all are suppose to have something
herbal or a natural oil included. Sarah is clearly labeled as hair
henna on the box. All of my herbal/henna hair dyes are on the page
as herbal/henna...making the clear distinction that there is
something in them other than just henna. I wouldn't look at those
and test them or think they belong in any test with body art quality
henna powder. I didn't understand their inclusion when I saw the
list but didn't pay that much attention to it because I had no idea
it bore any relationship to me. There are too many of these quirks
when samples come from just anywhere.
If this didn't come from Denise, then I can stop looking for proof of
that order. But the same issue applies with anyone who sent it
when/if it was bought as hair henna. And with the name Sarah on it,
that is the only conclusion I can come to.
