This red henna comes in a fine powder and the instructions give several ways to prepare it. I never knew about using lemon juice to release the colour but I'm so glad I gave it a try. I have long brown hair and have been using a block product which was clumpy and difficult to manage. I bought 200g but only needed 100g. I mixed it with lemon juice diluted with a little water and left it all day, put it on about 6 or 7pm, when it had been sitting at least 8 hrs, then I wrapped my hair in cling film and a towel and left it on overnight, washing it out the next morning about 8 or 9am. It's the most wonderful vibrant colour and has covered all my grey, which the block stuff struggled to do. I'll be using this from now on!
after trying few henna now that my hair is 80% white mix with indigo they didn't work I was disappointed because all my life I have used henna & never have that problem. Couldn't be more happy that I finally found certified Organic Cassia. Just follow carefully the instructions and you will get perfect results.
I've used solid henna a lot in the past from a well known high street store, but have found the dye to be really disappointing there recently. This product is so much better! It is much easier to apply as the henna is very fine so it makes a really smooth paste and is also easier to rinse out. I left it 24 hours in lemon juice and the colour was really beautiful and covered my newly multiplying greys!
The only downside for me is the plastic, especially as it comes double wrapped, as I am really trying to minimise how much I use. I would love it if this could looked into.
My first time using henna! It was easy to apply (nowhere near as messy as I had been warned) and also rinsed out well with no grittiness. The color was beautiful and rich on my hair but did not stain my bathroom or mixing bowl. Came with lots of info about how to use it. All in all a great product and I will purchase again!
I've been dying my hair (chemical dyes) since I was 12yrs old (I'm 37), I have had every colour from black, brown, platinum blonde, blue, pink and purple but I have never tried henna. Suvarna was highly recommended after I found I now have allergies towards chem dyes. I saw they had it's pure boxed henna but wanted to go big or go home. I purchased 200g of henna and some indigo (just incase). I cured henna with filtered water and lemon juice (2tble spoons) left for 23hrs to cure then applied. I did make a mistake in not adding enough water constancy was thick icing sugar again my mistake but I'm new to henna. I love the colour it's a deep red at the moment but I know after oxidation it'll be an auburn colour which was what I was hoping for. I'm a henna convert, I even love the smell of henna. I'll be buying more to stock up on. Kinda sad I have indigo I don't need but you never know I may need in future. Shelf life is amazing, packaging I'd brilliant as well stocking up won't take much space. I'm truly happy Thank you suvarna and thank you Tricia for your helpful advice. If you're ever in doubt ask Tricia will help you ❤️
Having had trouble with henna in the past I was nervous to try it again, but hair dye is starting to give me worse allergic reactions each time, and Iím not ready to go grey. This was perfect! Mixed it with apple juice and left on for four hours. I put the rest in the freezer and used it for my roots a couple months later. Next time Iíd be tempted to divide the mixture into lots of small tubs to freeze so I donít waste any, but Iím still not entirely sure how much I need.
Excellent: Very fine Henna powder giving great results

I've tried many other brands but none had such fine powder that mixed into a lovely yogurt like consistency. Where the coarser versions were crumbly to apply and keep on your head for hours and a nightmare to wash out, this one was so easy to spread on and wash out. I soaked it overnight before applying to release the dye and the results were a very bright Henna red that also made my hair feeling healthier and stronger. I am also allergic to Sodium Picramate which is often added to other Henna to enhance the red colour but it leaves my head very itchy for days. This one had no reaction to my super sensitive skin. My delivery arrived quickly. I'm very happy with my purchase.
