How can you protect yourself from black henna?
Ask questions! If the artist applying your henna does not know what's in their paste, don't allow them to apply it to your skin. If any "henna artist" offers black henna, avoid them! If the "henna" has a toxic or chemical smell, stay far far away. If the packaging on henna tubes or cones say anything about black henna, don't use it. My best advice is to mix your own henna paste, or hire henna artists that uses natural henna.
