These women had henna tattoos applied to help empower them to feel beautiful & to give them the confidence to be a walking work of art.

Henna Heals was created to raise awareness of "henna crowns", a temporary, safe and all-natural form of body-art for people experiencing hair loss.

The organisation was founded in 2011 as a small henna company based in Toronto, Canada, and has grown into an international referral organisation of over 250 independent henna artists.
