Experts recommend using henna and dyes carefully in pregnancy. Natural henna is thought to be safe. Black henna comes from a different tree to natural henna and is dangerous for you and your baby. Some henna products also have the hair dyes.
added to them. Check on the packet before you buy and choose henna without dyes.

You should consult your doctor before using henna if you suffered from any blood problems for example Anemia

Black henna can cause an acute skin allergy. Some doctors recommend not using any kind of henna directly as body art to avoid any possibility of a rash or allergy.

Even if you have used henna prior to being pregnant, it’s still wise to take some sensible precautions:

  • make sure that the room is well don’t lie down on your back while the henna is still on your hair or on your body, instead lie on your side or sit comfortably on a couch or a chair ventilated and cool
  • stop what you’re doing if you feel dizzy or experience shortness of breath.
  • don’t be tempted to keep the room hot to get more out of the henna colour.
  • Overheating can make you dizzy and may raise your Blood Pressure.

Always consult with your doctor before using henna. and check the ingredients and chemicals while using henna as the henna available in food stores or packeted powders are called compound henna and may contain lead which may be harmful.

hi pavitha, congrats on your pregnancy have a happy pregnancy journey. don't try products that you bought, if you need you can use Maruthani.. that is safe. and also be aware whether applying maruthani will cause cold to you.
