This lady is scarred for LIFE because of the wrong Henna dye
Black Henna can SCAR you for LIFE
Be careful where you get your own
Henna is used to draw temporary tattoos
Some people add para-phenylenediamine (PPD) to make it last longer and give it the black color.
Natural henna will give a brownish-orange color to the skin when applied (red henna), but the colour usually darkens to brown eventually
The longer henna is in contact with your skin, the darker the color will be, other things can be added to give different shades like lemon oil, Pure Henna in itself will cause weak allergic reactions in a small number of people.
But when you add PPD, PPD is so powerful and toxic that it is illegal to use it on the skin.
PPD is used in hair dyes also.
But when you add it directly to the skin, it can cause burns
Not everybody will have this reaction to black henna, but if you do, it can be really painful!
The reactions can start as soon as 2 days but the effects are lasting for life.
Some may not have this reaction at all.
But that's not where it stops.
You run the risk of getting sensitized to the black Henna, what does it mean? It means that if you ever get exposed again, you may develop a life threatening reaction to it.
There is the case of a woman who died from a reaction to hair dye she had used before.
What do you do?
Natural Henna is never black
If it's black, please avoid.
If you have ever had a reaction to black Henna, no matter how little, avoid using hair dyes that contain p-Phenylenediamine or Toluene-2,5-diamine.
If you have a reaction, see a doctor immediately...
