Every human is a beautiful work of art and Henna Heals works to exemplify that beauty. People experiencing complete hair loss as a result of chemotherapy or Alopecia often seek to hide their heads beneath wigs or hats, but with these beautiful, temporary henna crowns, their heads become the canvas for stunning works of art. Started by Frances Darwin in Toronto, Canada, Henna Heals also offers henna services for special events and belly painting for mothers-to-be, but they always donate 10% of their proceeds to help subsidize the cost of crowns for those who need them the most. They use 100% natural, home-made henna paste.

Darwin explains:

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.
