- An African woman- Elaine Wangui has narrated of her nerve-jarring ordeal with henna, a beauty, coloring product used by women all over the world
- Unfortunately for her, and quite a number of the women in the world, a certain brand of henna reacts horribly when in contact with the human skin
Most women in Ghana take some time off to show off beauty in art. By getting those posh, Arabian inspired henna temporary tattoos replescendent of the coastal region.
One Elaine Wangui who is suffering after her henna art went left has asked Ghanaian women to stay from henna - especially the black one called Piko or peako.
As we speak she has what looks like warts all over her fingers and hand where the henna touched.
The whole hand is swollen and she looks like she has had a violent allergy.
And of course, the warts are as painful as hell.
Her update had over 300 shares on Facebook with African girls sharing their bad henna experiences.
