Remember when henna was so “2000”? It was like, the greatest thing to do at your sweet sixteen or bat mitzvah. Your friends felt so scandalous getting a “floral” or “star” design on their back like a tramp stamp and your mom accepted it because it was “just temporary”. I remember getting a weird swirl design on my hand at some birthday party where they served Moroccan food under a silk tent. The henna was goopy, chunky, brown and GROSS. But that’s because the person making it was not a skilled mixer. It also didn’t help that she was American and totally unaware that henna was actually not from 2000. Henna is a skin dye used also on hair, fingernails, wool and leather in Roman, Mediteranean, Egyptian, African, Spanish and Indian traditional celebrations dating back from the Bronze Age.
