Peeling or flaking off is a natural part of the henna tattoo process. As the henna dries, it forms a hard crust on the skin's surface. Once this crust starts to crack and peel away, it flakes off to reveal the stained skin beneath it. This flaking process generally occurs within the day of the initial application, but sometimes people may sleep and have their henna peel off the next morning.

Henna tattoos, also known as Mehndi or mehendi, are a beautiful form of body art that originated in Ancient India. They are temporary body designs made from the henna plant, which is a plant native to the Middle East and South Asia, as well as some parts of northern Africa. Henna tattoos have become widely popular globally now, and are often provided at vacation areas.
Traditionally, henna tattoos were applied only on women's hands and feet for special celebrations such as weddings, festivals, and religious ceremonies. However, in recent years, henna tattoos have become a popular trend among both men and women and are now seen as a beautiful form of self-expression. Even in its home regions, henna has become a statement of fashion and fun, as well.

Henna on the Beach
Countless years down on the boardwalk I have seen henna advertised, sometimes advertised as Black Henna. At the time I didn't think twice of it, enjoying my dripping frozen lemonade and the shining sun.
Now, as an adult with some knowledge, I know that these stores typically use the most cost effective products without the care of the quality of that product, as long as it can sell for the season. That's where Black Henna comes into these stores. This 'Black Henna' is essentially made up of different dyes and chemicals including PPD, which is found in most hair dyes (which all states to avoid direct scalp contact). When on the beach, enjoying the beautiful day, one rarely stops to think about these details. One may not even know the right questions to ask about back henna versus organic henna.
So How Is Black Henna Bad?
There is a high population that are severely allergic to Black Henna. Meaning breaking out in hives, itching burning feeling, and can even escalate into respiratory arrest. I know this all sounds scary, but don't worry too much. There are safe options and the knowledge is spreading more and more each day. Though many people do not first have major issues with PPD, this allergy can also be developed from continual or repetitive application. With that being said, there is no reason to continue the use of this product or advocate for its use.
There is especially reason to leave Black Henna behind when we have organic products that can deliver the same expectation in a much safer and healthier way.
