Henna & curl relaxation???

I posted this on the color board with no luck. I thought I'd try on the general board.

I have been doing a bit of research on body art quality henna, including doing a search of this site and scanning the forum. On that forum, I note there were several questions/comments about henna loosening the curl pattern. I am curious how many of you curlies have used henna, for how long, and have you noticed your curls loosening?

I think the color is beautiful. I just don't to loose my curls.

    I tired it in my pre-cg days, so i can't speak much to it pulling out curl. I did find it to be very drying - drying enough for a Dt not to fix. It was body art quality henna as opposed to the 'cheap' stuff.

    Others love it though.
