The best way to Keep up with unavoidable distress is to find pleasure in what you undergo. This is the underlying statement that should see one through all turmoil that life tosses over. Most cancer patients loose hair and turn bald. Though baldness is common among men, the eves feel distressed and discerning when they turn bald. To rejuvenate them, a Toronto based Photographer’s company has launched henna heals program. This program developed by Frances Darwin is to use the head as a canvass and paint exquisite designs with a natural plant-based paste, Henna.
Henna the traditional design that decorates the palm is considered auspicious by the Indians. It is an essential part of bridal makeup. Well the tradition seems to be likely in many countries like Pakistan, Morocco and Somalia. However Frances Darwin has changed the utility of henna. The designs not only are elegant but also give back the lost confidence to the women, who set trends by flaunting their crowned heads.
The swirling, intricate drawings, which are safe, temporary and applied by skilled artists, command the eye to the head of the henna wearer, inspiring awe rather than pity while offering an alternative to wigs or hats. For the artist the design would take approximately ninety minutes and would cost $100 only. Even 10% of the cost goes to crowning the less fortunate who cannot afford the cost.
The unique initiative by the company has brought back the lost smile on the faces of many cancer patients since the last one year. Ask the innovator and she quickly chirps in to say, 'For cancer patients, 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 and making it more feminine and beautiful.'
