Chemical HENNA WARNING

Henna has become increasingly popular in the past few decades. As we see more and more peopled doing diy henna freckles, lips, brows and just having fun doodling on themselves and friends, it has become very important that the general public become aware of the dangers of chemical henna. With so many different brands of henna it can be hard to tell which is safe and which isn't. Although it may seem harmless or you many not "see" any reaction to a certain henna, that doesn't mean it isn't harmful. 


So how do you know which henna is safe to use?


1. Is it handmade by a reputable henna artist? 

2. Does it smell divine or does it smell bad? 

3. Is it wrapped in gold or silver foil wrapping? 


Black henna warning

Many people have started using, what is known as, black henna to achieve a even darker or "black" stain. This henna is extremely dangerous! It contains chemicals such as PPD (paraphenylenediamine) which can cause painful burns and permanent scars. Many times these types of henna cones contain little to no henna at all and in many cases the henna has been replaced with such chemicals. PPD is typically used in hair dye and is not safe to use on the skin. Unfortunately the same goes for colored or commercial henna cones from India or Pakistan. 


All natural henna has a shelf life of a few days to a week max. If your artist is using henna cones bought from 


Please be sure to do your research before you hire a henna artist. Ask about what they use in their recipe, do they make it themselves or do they buy it from a reputable source? Look for good reviews.
