Ancient Body-Art Is Giving Women Who Survived Life’s Most Brutal Battle A New Sense Of Self Love

A wonderful organization called Henna Heals offers cancer patients a new sense of beauty and self-love through henna.

For many cancer patients, hair loss is a dispiriting reality due to chemotherapy treatments.

Luckily, there are multiple ways for people to accommodate for the unfortunate side effect.

Unlike a normal tattoo, henna does not pierce the skin, there are no needles involved, and it isn’t permanent.

With Henna Heals, the henna paste used in every case is homemade with 100% all-natural ingredients.

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.”
