Excellent: Very fine Henna powder giving great results
Thursday, 26 September 2019 | Susie
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.
This was my first time using henna hair dye and I'll be honest I didn't have the highest expectations as my hair is pretty dark (medium-dark brown) but I thought I'd give it a go anyway. I naturally had a few red highlights to my hair in the sun but nothing very noticeable unlike my sister who's hair turns a beautiful colour of coppery red in the sunlight. I am pleased to say that this henna went way beyond my low expectations. I mixed it with pure lemon juice and left it over night and the next morning applied it to my hair and left it for about 2-3 hours. It was quite a bit of effort to rinse out but after a few washes and once I blow dried it my hair was very red- maybe a little too red for my liking! But after a day or two it cooled down and is back to brown but with amazing auburn/red low and highlights- especially in the sunlight. I love it! It also looks very natural which is what I wanted. I'm very happy overall!
This Henna is amazing. Quite the beat I've used. It's so nice and easy to apply and not gritty like the other Henna's I've used. I used pure organics indigo anyway and mixed it with the henna before application, as I wanted a medium to dark brown finish. Unfortunately I didn't have quite enough indigo left so the finish is a little redder than what I wanted, as the grey hairs have gone more red. However, I did the application over a week ago and it's toning down now. My own fault as I should have checked I had more indigo. My hair which has no.grey is a gorgeous glossy dark brown with tons of red highlights. The condition feels amazing. Very pleased. Will not use any other henna now. I've been using henna for around 2 years now.
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.
