A powerful initiative from Henna Heals is helping a number of cancer patients around the world. Personally, I know how cancer can effect the body and soul, and for many the physical and emotional difficulties of their disease, and the loss of their hair , can leave you feeling very overwhelmed.

Henna Heals, is a collective 150 henna tattoo artists that help women with cancer feel confident and beautiful again by drawing elegant henna crowns on their bare heads. The intricate patterns that the artists create with all-natural henna paste are a unique and empowering substitute to the hats and wigs that many women use to cover their heads after losing their hair to chemotherapy.

“For cancer patients, the henna crowns really are a healing experience. This is all about them reclaiming a part of themselves that would normally be perceived as ill or damaged or not nice to look at and making it more feminine and beautiful.”

Frances Darwin, the founder of Henna Heals.

Henna Heals was initially established by a team of 5 women in Canada, and also offers henna services for special events and does belly painting for mother-to-be, but they always donate 10% of their proceeds to compensate the cost of the henna crowns they make for cancer patients.
