The history and origin of Henna is hard to trace. With centuries of migration and cultural interaction, it is difficult to determine where particular traditions began. Some researches argue henna originated in ancient India while others claim it was brought to India by Egyptian moghuls in the 12th century. Still others will contend that the tradition of applying henna to the body began in the Middle East and North Africa in ancient times.

The word Henna has its origin in the Arabic word Al-Hinna. Henna produces a red-orange dye molecule. This molecule has an affinity for bonding with protein, and thus has been used to dye skin, hair, fingernails, leather, silk and wool.

As a healing plant, henna conditions, cleanses, colors and cools the skin. When applied to hair, it has the same effect. Millions of Asian and African people regularly apply henna to their hair as it helps to cool the scalp in the hot summer months. It is very unusual for anyone to have an adverse reaction to natural henna as it is one of the safest cosmetics ever used, but if one is concerned then a patch test could be the answer.

In non-traditional American & European pop-culture, henna decorating is practiced by men and women alike. Mainstream America remains fascinated with body adornment and beauty practices from other cultures.
