"This is the first time I've "henna-ed" and I think I really like the result. My hair, now that summer is over, is a combination of blonde highlights, medium brown and dark brown underneath so I really did not know what to expect. The hair that was very dark, has only very subtle red tinges and the hair on top is now a red/auburn but it blends fine. It is not a "Lucy" or Ronald McDonald red, but a deeper red. I'm happy with it and hope it doesn't change much over the next few days.
I used the whole 4oz and found that it didn't cover as much as I wanted - I have shoulder length hair cut in layers. There are places where I think it "missed" even though I was pretty sure I covered it all. It was too thick, so I did add some yogurt and more water. Next time I'd try vinegar and red zinger tea, but didn't want to do it this time since it was a trial run.
I did keep it in nearly an hour and had heat on and off (I sat on and off in front of a stationary heater we have and then wrapped my head in a hot towel over the plastic wrap.) I didn't find the rinse out to be a big deal at all - it took several minutes but it did all finally dissolve - just do it in the shower and not the sink or you'll probably never get it all. The staining is overstated I think - it did not stain my white porcelain sink nor even my hands (I touched my hair after I took the gloves off). It does smell, but it's just like grass or plants and is not a bad smell at all.
Will definitely be doing this again - it's fun! :)"

"I've used this henna for years. Once a local chain stopped carrying it I had to find it online. Vitacost shipped it quickly and accurately.
My hair is pretty long but I use each can of the henna for 2 applications. The color is great; everyone thinks it's natural. I also don't get any split ends unless I blow dry, so my hair is stronger. It smells funny for a day or two and it will get on your clothes, but it's totally worth it. It does turn grey hairs bright orange; use caution. ;)"

Love it!
 October 29, 2012
"I had tried a couple of other brands of henna, I wasn't too excited about them, but didn't want to go back to the chemical dyes. Tried this brand, have absolutely loved it! I have used it several times now, and will continue to buy for forever! I have a sink sprayer and that makes rinsing it out so much easier I think! I love the conditioned feeling it has afterwards too, my hair tends to be really dry."

I didn't love it
 January 6, 2012
"The color deposit from this henna wasn't bad, but the product itself is not finely sifted, so it was very hard for me to wash out. Matter of fact, I had what looked like pieces of straw in my hair days after washing out the product. My experience was not one to be repeated. Will not purchase this product again."

Excellent Henna
 December 8, 2011
"The best henna I've ever tried. The color is rich, the henna itself is easy to use and easy to wash out of the hair (which is a real bonus!), the hair is soft and pliant after the use. Will order again for sure! One package is enough for shoulder-length hair."
