Very few are aware of a similar & highly dangerous & harmful product-Black Henna. Black henna is made up of chemical (mainly PPD-para-phenylenediamine). It is very harmful & may leave lifelong side effects including blisters, open sores.

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. - May 16, 2014 - PRLog -- There are many ways to differentiate both products:-

PASTE COLOR:-Natural Henna past is dark green or greenish brown in color while black henna paste is


SMELL:- Natural henna has a strong odor while black henna has either chemical or no fragrance at all.

TATTOO COLOR:-Natural henna leaves orange color & start turning dark in 24-48 hrs but black henna

leaves a black stain in no time. If you see artists have black spots (instead or orange or brown), its a hint

she/he is using black henna.

TATTOO DESIGN:- Artist cannot make very fine & smooth design with black henna due to the paste

composition while with natural henna is all about very minute, intricate & fine designs.

HENNA CARE TIPS:- If the artist doesn't give you lots of instructions on how to take care & why is it

important to keep the tattoo away from moisture, it is a RED flag. Natural henna needs lot of care to get

dark color but black henna leaves black stain without any care at all & moisture doesn't effect the stain


BEACHES:- Most of the artists (I am not saying all) uses black henna or a mixture of natural & black

henna as the air is very moist near beaches & it makes it impossible to get a good stain.

Is Henna safe on pregnant woman?

YES! 100% Natural henna is completely safe & as a matter of fact pregnant woman are recommended to

use henna on their belly as henna absorbs all the heat from the body & gives a cooling effect.

Does Zainab uses Natural Henna?

I use all natural 100% herbal henna imported from India. However people allergic to citric or any

essential oils (which are natural too) should be careful as lemon & other essential oils are mixed to get a

dark & longer lasting stain. Patients taking lithium pills should avoid henna.
