Unfortunately over the past few years henna has been tarnished by a totally different product utilising it popular name this being 'Black Henna' which is not henna at all but a chemical p- phenylenediamine (PPD) it was previously mainly used as a black hair dye but when used directly on the skin can cause dangerous health problems with an estimated 3% to 15% allergic reaction rate. Para-phenylenediamine "black henna" use is widespread, particularly in tourist areas of the world with unscrupulous traders offering it, as it does create a desirable black tattoo.Thankfully now there is a new product on the market that also provides a blue black tattoo but with non of the permanent dangerous side effects this being Jagua.Hopefully this may reduce or eradicate the use of 'black henna' on the market fingers crossed.
I personally love the art of mehndi good for ever changing art for the ever changing fashions. I think it will continue to be successful for many years to come, it is fast becoming a tradition for festivals and celebrations in the western world as well as its homelands.
