Not a bad first time
The instructions were simple and it was promptly delivered but the quality of the henna was very poor and gritty. I had trouble getting it out of my hair. The results were minimalI my dark brown hair had slightly copper tones. Later I tried it again with some body art quality henna mixed with lemon juice instead of hot water and liked it much better. It was cheaper as well but I wouldn’t put it down for someone cautious for their first time.
It is such a strong herbal scent that it made my entire apartment smell like henna, and gave me a terrible headache
This was my first time using henna so I followed the included directions exactly. One thing I was not expecting is the scent! It is such a strong herbal scent that it made my entire apartment smell like henna, and gave me a terrible headache. Once rinsed out & after several shampooings my hair still smelled like henna for about a week.I rinsed my hair with conditioner to remove the henna, and waited over 24 hours before washing with shampoo however, the color still only lasted about 4-5 washes and then it was completely gone.Overall, I didn’t think it was worth the trouble it was very difficult for me to wash out the henna paste, and I ended up using at least half a bottle of conditioner, and lost a lot of hair in the process of trying to get it all out.
Great color and conditioning
I order this for my husband and he uses it on his beard. He likes the Red (Fox) color and it turns his African-American, naturally black hair a deep auburn. He has salt n pepper in his beard and it turns the silver a bright gold-auburn 🙂 He has gotten compliments and people (men and women) asking how he color his beard. I like that it’s natural, halal, and makes his hair healthier.He doesn’t use it as instructed but has come up with his own method: he mixes a tiny amount with water in a small container to form a thick paste; let sit for an hour; apply to hair to coat; let dry. After completely dry, just use a comb or fingers to comb it out. Sometimes he lets it sit in his beard for several hours (or overnight) around the house before combing out. He stores the leftover paste by covering the container and uses the rest again. If it dries out, he just adds a little warm water and mixes to a paste. It works better after sitting longer. He remixes another batch whenever needed and reapplies every few days or once a week. Using it this way, one box lasts him a few months. I’m sure it would go faster using it on your head but I’m sure the same method would work and avoids wasting any.Results are visible after the first use, but the color builds and looks richer after more applications. hope this helps.
I used this product twice and I am very satisfied with it. The color stays on my hair (originally brown with warm copper undertones) for ~1-2 mnth. I was my hair everyday so it washes off rather quickly.
Hey, Ive tired alot of different hennas and this one is one of the best. The dye release is very good, and the color is vibrant. The paste itself is good quality. I make it with Red Zinger Berry tea and the results are excellent and I have a fair amount of gray hair aswell. The color is just amazing,and I cant tell you how many compliments Ive gotten from people right off the street over the years from it.
