Cancer patients who undergo chemotherapy or Alopecia sufferers usually have to hide their hair loss under wigs and hairpieces. However, a Toronto-based artist named Frances Darwin has shown them a different path that can turn bald heads into canvasses for artwork that can turn heads.
Darwin has started a service named Henna Heals that offers temporary crown painting on heads without any hair. These fashionable designs are great alternatives for conventional options like toupees and other head coverings.
Not only is this solution aesthetically pleasing and easy on the pocket, but Henna Heals also donates 10 percent of its proceeds to help those in need.
Explaining the concept behind Henna Heals, Darwin said: "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."
