So, I have used henna before, but this product is way better than the product I used before (I used to get my henna from Lush). This product comes in a cute little package with a picture of a mermaid on it. The henna powder is in its own container within, and the package also includes instructions and a pair of gloves. Don’t bother with the plastic gloves, though, I had a devil of a time trying to use them. The henna will stain you skin, so buy some nicer latex gloves (the kind your dentist and doctor wear). Also, use vaseline (or something without mineral oil) to protect the skin around your hairline, that way you don’t go to work with orange skin.The quality of this henna is wonderful, and it produces a very rich, vibrant color. My hair looks exactly like how I envisioned it, based on the photo on the product’s web page. Potential buyers should note that the color your hair turns out depends on the color you start with. If your hair is dark to start, you’re going to get a darker result than the photo. My hair is naturally a dishwater blonde, so the red comes out very nicely. And, if you haven’t read up about henna, be prepared for it to have a very strong herbal/damp earth/hay smell. I personally think it’s way better than the ammonia smell you get from most boxed dyes. However, the smell of damp earth does stay in your hair for a few days (depending on how often you wash it). It’s not so obvious that my coworkers or friends notice, but I can tell that it’s still there for a few days.I highly recommend mixing in some olive oil when you henna, because it can dry out your hair. But, it won’t give you crazy split ends like boxed dyes. Also, be sure to clean up any henna you spill, because it can also stain your bathroom counter. And, your shower will look pretty strange when you rinse the henna out. Just be sure to rinse your hair out thoroughly, and then rinse the shower itself with lots of water. Also, from personal experience, make sure you get all the henna out of your ears.
I bought this henna thinking it would turn out similar to when i tried it 4 years ago with a different brand but similar color, it did not. I have naturally dishwater blonde hair that takes well to color and is very thick and long. However, just applying this product took well over 2 hours, its really hard to coat each strand especially if you have thick and/or longer hair, and when I washed it out not only had I missed parts of my head which I had tried my best to cover, but it came out FLAMING ORANGE. And not in a good way. it faded in the next two weeks but still appears MUCH too orange for me. I was recently called strawberry blond by a few of my friends but that still is not what i wanted. Disappointing.
I love the color I got with this ! I’m a hairstylist and my hair has been thru it all and coloring it red over and over I just stumbled across this one day and thought why not !? It smells green for at least 2 days after u do it. Other than that I love it ! 😁 I bought more!
