I've been a Caca Rouge user for 10 years, until disability made chopping and grating a solid bar too painful. I ordered Suvanas henna to try on my thick, waist length hair, particularly my darker roots. The henna arrived quickly and was simple to prepare, the instructions were clear.
Working with powder henna that didn't need heating was so much quicker and easier to apply, no lumpy mixture, burns or time spent trying to massage it through my hair. One pack coated my hair completely with enough to saturate my roots. I advise you *do* use gloves, a barrier cream and a spray bathroom cleaner afterwards as it dyes skin and the tub quickly. However it definitely doesn't have a heavy herbal smell, which is a plus.
I'm a convert, and will be using Survana henna from now on, it's a high quality henna that turns an arduous process into a pain free, quick dye job.
I have used just henna for 1st time on its own, I do have grey roots, it has took really well. I love the colour its rich orange colour. I know it will darken over days too. VEry pleased with it will be ordering again, thank you.

I have been using it for 2 years with indigo and itís really good . But is there something to get rid of the indigo smell ? At the moment I use leave in hair oil with sweet almond oil . But are there any alternatives to use to not have that smell ...
Try adding a little ginger or cardamom powder to the paste to mask the smell

As instructed I left the product on the grey areas of my hair for longer than the rest. Those areas were fluorescent orange. The rest of my hair wasn't that great either. I had to wash it several times with Head and Shoulders to tone down the colour. I would not use this product again
I am sorry but it is normal for pure red henna to be orangey on white hairs, especially immediately after you have washed it out. The fluorescent brassiness will tone down and darken a bit as it oxidises over a few days to a week after application.
Henna was great

Henna mixed well into a very smooth paste which meant rinsing out was so easy and quick, leaving a very rich colour. Very please with results.
I had been thinking for a long time about using Henna instead of Chemical Dye long term ,but had felt anxious also as I had done my research on the effect of impure henna on Chemical dyed hair . So after doing further research I was very happy to find a Company that promoted Certified Pure Henna ,as well as other Certified products .This put my mind at ease. I ordered this product from Suvarna which arrived in a few day's .I am so impressed with the lovely rich shade of red ! And the noticeable change for the better in my hair condition was immediate ,especially as I also deep conditioned after . Because it is finely milled ,it was very easy to remove from my hair afterwards .I feel happy that I now have the freedom to retouch my colour as and when I choose without the concern of the chemical process .I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who would like to make a similar transition .I,m really happy that I finally did .!
