The leaves of the fascinating Henna plant are the source of a red-brown dye widely used for body art, known as Mehndi in South Asia and now popular around the world. Egyptian Royalty were said to dye their hair with Henna leaves. Since 1890 it has been widely used in Europe for tinting the hair, usually in the form of a shampoo, many shades being obtainable by mixing with the leaves of other plants, such as indigo. The plant is mostly found in Egypt, India, Kurdistan, Iran, and Syria.
