Black Henna vs. Natural Henna

Henna has been used for generations to adorn skin with designs of all kinds. Natural henna is made from dried, ground-up henna plant leaves because only the leaves contain the dye. Natural henna is made into a paste with essential oils and applied to the skin to dye it. The result is a reddish brown tattoo on the skin. Natural henna is generally safe, and usually does not cause an allergic reaction. Most henna artists use natural henna for their work, making it safe and fun.

Recently, some people have been tattooed with Black Henna. Black henna is not actually henna at all. The jet black color is achieved from a chemical ingredient added to the paste. This synthetic ingredient is usually a coal-tar dye called “PPD” or para-Phenylendiamine. It is absorbed into your skin, enters your blood stream, and in turn passes through your kidneys and liver. Some people have had extreme reactions and lifelong damage. Many people like the idea of black henna because the outcome looks more like a real tattoo. Though the tattoo looks real, it can also have a high risk of staying with you for the rest of your life.

There are many potential risks associated with the use of black henna. The chemical burn that can be caused by PPD causes the skin to blister, swell and itch. You can have a permanent scar or even develop allergies to other things, if you only use it once. The chemical that makes the henna black, can stay in your system and cause your body to react to things that you would not normally have an allergy to. Many people have found themselves unable to use sunscreen, cosmetics, dark-colored fabrics, leather, and hair dyes ever again. Henna can be found at fairs, resorts, festivals, and theme parks, and can often contain black henna with PPD without the vendor knowing.
