Black Henna - Warning!

Henna Friends and Fans!

I often get asked for black henna applications and i'm a little surprised at the volume of inquiries. Leezee's does NOT use black henna and neither should anyone. Black henna can be very dangerous as it contains a chemical called PPD.

What is PPD:

PPD (para-phenylenediamine) is a black chemical dye that may cause severe allergic reactions. Unfortunately, henna products are often labeled "Natural" but contain traces of this chemical. Leezee's does not use or promote black henna and we strongly recommend NOT using it. PPD has been linked to cancer, it has also been know to burn skin and cause sever reactions.

 

As always, if you have any questions please ask :)

Applying Henna for Beginners

Hello All!

Recently, I've been getting a lot of question on how to apply henna in a professional, clean and fast way. The trick is practice, practice and practice. When I finished my MBA I got married and wanted to start a family, as a result I put my career in information management on hold. Bored at home and with the financial stresses of being newly weds and a recent grad I decided to start my henna business.

IMO to be successful at anything, you must LOVE doing it. I love the the art of henna, it has been a passion of mine since I was a child. It's not primarily for the money (although it helps :)). That being said, how can you go from a good artist to a great one? Here are some tips;

-Practice! One technique I used was to apply henna on a ceramic plate. You can use paper but reusing ceramic plates is more environmentally friendly. I have also used mirrors and glass.

-Educate yourself! Understand the different styles of henna, this is essential when I am dealing with the vast array of cultures. Arabic, indo-pak, modern, Moroccan etc. There are a ton resources out there, just Google it. 

-Watch other artists apply henna. The grip of the cone, the pressure applied, the position of your subject, their posture etc. I am in the process of creating a Youtube series that will show the various techniques. There are some great video, simply search Youtube.

-Ask me! I am more than happy to help :)

 

Have a wonderful day!
