Turn that Frown Upside Down with a Henna Crown
Losing one’s hair is a devastating part of chemotherapy. Some patients even end up losing their hair permanently. Henna artists who are experienced in creating exquisite designs work to make the change a little less frightening and more empowering by drawing beautiful henna crown right on the heads of former cancer patients who have lost their hair due to the devastating disease.
The art is also a hit with people who suffer from Alopecia. Alopecia is an autoimmune disease that results in partial and in worse cases, total hair loss. It is the latter that is the most devastating as is to be expected. Henna crowns give their self confidence a much needed boost.
Provided that it is made with natural ingredients Henna paste is perfectly safe that is, unless it is black henna. Black or red henna comes in cones and contains harmful chemicals such as PPD.
If you are wondering, PPD is used in hair dye. Plus it has devastating effects on the skin if you happen to be allergic to it. Think of a blistering oozy henna design. The stuff is anything but 100% pure henna.
Make no mistake. If a henna design starts is pure black it has PPD in it. You can’t afford to have something like that on your skin especially after you just got out of a traumatizing experience like cancer. You do not need a doctor to tell you that.
However, it is still best that you consult with your doctor before you get a henna crown of your own. The art is equally recommended for patients who are still undergoing treatment,Only when henna artist use natural henna and water paste.
