--> iNews: Black Henna is Evil!

as-salam

Corak di tangan pengantin mungkin cantik, tetapi tahukah anda bahawa jika anda menggunakan Black Henna, kecantikan tersebut mungkin boleh berubah seperti gambar di bawah ini.


So what is the “black henna” that you may have seen at a festival or on the street?  Well, the truth is, it likely has some henna in it but that isn’t what makes it black. A substance also found in black hair dye is the key ingredient for black henna, known as PPD (para-phenylenediamine).

So why is PPD so dangerous? Because skin exposed to PPD for an extended period of time (as is needed in henna application) can irritate the skin, possibly even scar it (as seen in the photo above and the two lower down on this page).  Individual sensitivity varies but severe scars and even kidney and respiratory damage have been attributed to PPD in black henna mixes. Some individuals “skate by” with minor allergic reactions or mild dermatitis, the first time. Some even avoid a reaction all together, initially, but typically that doesn’t last.  If you don’t have a reaction or you have a mild one the first time, it doesn’t mean you won’t have a worse reaction with the next application.  Once you have a reaction to a PPD exposure, you are forever sensitized to it.   The reactions can worsen with subsequent exposures and can eventually render a person incapable of contact with a number of everyday items (PPD/black dye is used in a number fabric dyes and other products). Source

How To tell the difference?
Asking the artist can be a good start, however those use black henna are likely to either lie to you or may not be aware of the dangers themselves.  Below are a few tips to keep yourself safe:
1)Take a look at the paste, it should be a greenish to dark brown color.  If they are using powder then take a look at the powder, it varies from bright green to dull yellow green.
2) If the artist reassures you that it can be washed off within an hour, STAY CLEAR!!! With natural henna, the longer you leave it on the richer the stain becomes.  Most artists recommend a minimum of 4 hours depending on the location of the application. Source
