Henna Heals was founded in 2011. Working as a photographer, Frances Darwin became inspired by a client who had cancer and was adorned with a henna crown. She decided to start a business in Toronto offering an artistic, beautiful alternative to a wig or scarf for people who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy and alopecia. Soon after she began, Henna Heals was featured in Elle Magazine, Daily Mail, Bored Panda, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed and the list goes on. This concept quickly resonated with people from around the world and she ended up creating a global henna crown movement.
Quin, the artist and owner of Henna Planet, is a proud member of the original Toronto Henna Heals team. Although Henna Heals is no longer in business, Quin continues to offer henna crowns as part of her Services.
"Thank you, Quin, for my beautiful henna crown. I love it!! It was a relaxing, soothing experience, and was also a huge confidence restorer." ~ Leslie
