Mixed with Amla powder it gave a nice dark red color, although I was looking for something more copper looking, Next time I will use it with Cassia for sure! Overall I"m very satisfied with this product, delivery was fast, will order from Suvarna again for sure
It was my first order from Suvarna, I ordered 10 packs of the Oct 2016 harvested henna thinking that it may not be that fresh but I took the chance to make to most of the generous discount. I was not disappointed at all! I have dark brown (medium thickness) mid-back length hair with a few white hairs at the front. I mixed one packet (100g) with the juice of a lemon and water and left it overnight. It is very finely ground which makes a smooth paste that is very easy to apply. Surprisingly I had enough mixture for the whole head and length of hair but if my hair was thick I think I would've needed half a packet more. I kept it on for almost 7 hours and washed it out with just plain water (no shampoo). The colour is a very rich mahogany and I was impressed by how well it coloured my white hairs. This is premium quality henna, nothing else compares to the potency of colour this product has. Don't be put off by the harvest date. The delivery was also very quick considering I opted for 2nd class delivery, it arrived within 3 days.
I've been using henna for around six years now and this is among the best I've had. Such a bargain price and really lovely colour result. I will continue buying this brand on the future. I have naturally dark auburn hair and this henna leaves it a vibrant mahogany red. I have had tons of compliments. I thoroughly recommend this to anyone looking to henna their hair.
