henna crowns on children?

Hello all!  I have an opportunity to help with a charity event for St. Jude's Children's Hospital/Research Center and they treat children with cancer.  I wanted to possibly donate my time by doing henna crowns for those over 5 years old but I'm not sure if it is safe- has anyone ever done this before on children?

It would be best to consult with one of the doctors at St. Judes.  Obviously, you should not henna broken, irritated or sensitive skin.  Use a gentle mix and let them know exactly what is in it.  Check out the Health and Henna info at HennaPage here: www.hennapage.com/henna/encyclopedia/medical/ and be prepared to answer any questions the docs or parents might have.

I have had the opportunity to henna a child who was undergoing cancer treatment and it was a wonderful experience both for the child, who got to be proud of her bald head, and for me who got to help bring a smile to her face.  I hope everything goes well!
