In some Cultures, mostly middle eastern it’s very popular to use it on festivals, parties or just for fun.
Henna is extracted from the henna shrub, the only species in the genus Lawsonia. It’s used since hundreds years ago to make perfume of the Lawsonia flowers while its green autumn leaves was used to make henna. The active ingredient Lawson undertakes in the hair with the proteins present there.
