Since I picked up my first henna cone – roughly two years ago – it seems there has been an EXPLOSION in the exposure for henna. I know this for two reasons: Increased news stories covering the dangers of “black henna” (this is great for spreading dangers of non-natural henna) and also the exponential growth in the number of henna artists now on instagram. Literally, there are hundreds of thousands of us now!
And I have to say: I. Love. It.
The one thing I was grateful for when I began was the generous and established existing community of henna artists. All of whom have been welcoming and nurturing. I feel as though I have henna mentors dotted around the world, all gently supporting me in my journey. To see this wonderful community grow is an amazing feeling. It makes me proud to be part of such a creative community. And as far as I’m concerned: The more the merrier!
