Henna Question

Hello Friends,

As some henna is absorbed via the scalp during the process, is it possible for the liver or kidneys to be taxed in some way?  If not, how does the body eliminate henna that is absorbed?

 

Thanks,

I'd sure rather have my scalp absorb henna than bleach, ammonia, PPD, etc. I went to henna after using chemical hair dyes for years and getting horrible chemical sensitivities. I like knowing I'm not hurting myself anymore.
