whoa.
thats crazy intense, haha.

I used to work for a a company at a theme park who did all the artsy stuff, (facepainting, airbrush tattoos and shirts and hats, caricatures and henna) and we were always told we couldn't henna someones face, because the skin is more sensitive.....

One of the girls tried to test this, and had a massive reaction to it, and it burnt a swirl pattern around her eyes.

Has this ever happened to you?

I was thinking maybe it was the type of henna, or maybe it was just random, because she used it on her arms and legs with no problems.

Woah, i would guess you guys used black henna? that shit is sicknasty, there are some gnarly dyes in it that are really bad for you. or maybe there was tea tree oil in it? that stuff is strong so maybe thats what made her break out.
I use henna on my face all the time no problem, but then again i only use all natural stuff that i know has no dyes in it.


so i love all of this.

it's amazing.

thank you  Smiley
I use henna alll the time. hahaha.

we used (supposedly) all natural stuff, like, directly from this (as I was told,) crazy old indian lady who had a small company, and was so sure that it was pure she ate a whole bottle of it....

But I don't know. We got so many lectures in the begining of the job about no black henna, because of the chemicals and what not... blahblahblah.

anyways, I dunno. I guess she might have just had really sensitive skin, is the whole point of this. haha.

And seeing your post inspired to give myself a henna all over my palm and left arm  Wink

I'm basically poor, so i use what I have, and can't buy any new henna. The stuff I do have though, has been sitting in my fridge for... almost a year.  Undecided

almost everything I did on my arm/hand is gone, it faded after the first day and a half or so.

But my palms still there, kind of. haha.

its mostly just really really light brown, and orange speckled. I actually managed to get a little shading in, but its faded.

And, sorry about the icky cell phone picture.

Was the "henna" you used a jet black color and did it stain black? If it was and did, that's black henna. If it was brown and stained orange brown color, it was probably mostly natural henna. Most professional henna artists use lemon juice in their henna paste and tea tree oil or other essential oils.

If it was natural henna, it may have been the lemon juice or EO's that caused a reaction. Lemon juice is used because the citric acid brings out the stain. Citric acid can be harsh on the skin. The skin on the face is more sensitive than the legs and arms and is also thinner skin. Henna is not recommended for use on the face. But if you do it, you should avoid the eyes and mouth.
