Henna Crowns for Cancer Patients

People experiencing complete hair loss as a result of chemotherapy often hide their heads beneath wigs or hats. The amazing artists of Henna Heals provide another option; with beautiful henna-artwork, heads are transformed into a temporary canvas for stunning henna crowns. Crowns to honor the braveness and perseverance of cancer patients.

I love how founder of Henna Heals, Frances Darwin, explains her motifs: “For women, 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, by making it more beautiful with floral patterns, religious symbols and messages of hope.”

I think this last part is really profound… I like this initiative very much!
