There are a few ways for cancer patients to embrace the life-altering symptoms of their sickness such as wearing beautiful scarves, fun wigs and even proudly displaying hairless features; Henna Heals offers another alternative. Henna Heals turns their heads into canvases for intricate temporary tattoos. In this way, men and women are able to celebrate their baldness in a stunningly artistic and touching way.

Founded by Frances Darwin, who is based in Toronto, Canada, Henna Heals uses a percentage of its profits from its regular henna services to subsidize the cost of crowns for those who need them the most. Darwin writes, "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."
