Please do not use black henna. It is dangerous, could be life threatening and ILLEGAL in UK and USA.
Ladies/gents please avoid using it at all times. It may look beautiful but it is not worth the risk. I’ll explain why you should not use it... This so called “black henna” isn’t henna at all. It is just a dye applied to the skin in a henna design. It contains high levels of a chemical dye so powerful and toxic that it is illegal to use it in this way.
This chemical dye is called paraphenylenediamine (PPD for short). The chemical PPD is only legally permitted for use in hair dye and even then it is tightly regulated because of the health risks associated with it.
PPD can cause chemical burns and lead to allergic reactions. Aside from the legal risks, it can also leave you with permanent scarring, anaphylactic shocks and can seep into the bloodstream. It could leave you scarred for life and put you at risk of a life threatening allergic reaction.
If you experience stinging, itchiness or even a burning sensation then you may be experiencing an allergic reaction. It is so common, but not many people are aware of this. Hence, making you all aware!
It can be dangerous and even potentially fatal for those who turn out to be allergic.
So please do not take the risk, avoid using black henna and warn anyone using it. Let’s spread the word and stop as many people using it as possible... #henna#mehndi#blackhenna#blackmehndi#blackhennatattoo#blackmehnditattoo#blackhennadesign#blackmehndidesighns#blackhennaisdangerous#blackmehndistain#blackhennatatoo#blackmehndilondon#stop#mehndiartist#mehndistain#hennaartist#hennagroupbookings#mehndidesign#hennalove
