About Henna By Afshan
Hi ! My name is Afshan Moosa and I live in Dallas Tx since 1994. I have been practicing the art of Henna since I have been a teenager and professionally I have been in this industry for more than a decade . I mix my own henna paste (with the best Henna crop from India ) with absolutely no chemicals in it and hence I advise everyone that the peak color will show up after 48 hours and not right away as with the store bought henna cones which have a lot of harmful chemicals in them.
I work for Delta airlines and travel a lot…. The only reason I do Henna is because I absolutely LOVE doing it…….. Henna is not just work for me…… its A PASSION and you can see that in my work! I am a self taught artist but as of June 13th 2011 , I am a fully trained Henna Artist Certified by Ash Kumar ( A Guiness World Record Holder and CEO of Ash Kumar Henna and Beauty Academy UK) .
Henna (Lawsonia Inermis) is a woody shrub that thrives in hot and arid climates. The henna plant produces extremely fragrant and delicate flowers, which have been used in perfumes since ancient times. The leaves of the henna plant are harvested, dried, and then ground into a fine powder. This lovely silken green powder is made into a paste using safe and natural ingredients.
