nice color!

"I really like this henna. Gave my light brown hair a nice rich, caramel brown color that isn't too dark. I just used the henna with a splash of apple cider vinegar. Much better consistency, easier to apply and better color than Light Mountain light brown henna."

Nice natural color

"I have dapped with using henna for many year. Four years ago I started getting chemical burns on my scalp from regular hair dye. Blisters, swelling and oozing that would last for three weeks. Being in my fifty's with a lot of gray I needed to find an alternative. I turned to henna. I use coffee, apple cider vinegar and throw in an egg for conditioning. My hair dresser told me my hair will start breaking off after a while from using the henna. So six months ago, I started using collagen (in pill form). Everytime I get my hair cut, everyone in the salon comments on how great my hair looks! How healthy it looks!"

Not sure?
 March 26, 2013
"The jury is still out on this hair color? It turned my hair brassy red (and I used the coffee method) did everything by the book. I dont want to say that I dont recommend it because it covered my gray and the color isnt that bad (considering what I've seen)and it's very soft. I am going to try it again, but with the dark brown and use only half the amount (my hair is only 1 1/2" long) and mix it with a little more water so it's not like a mudpack. I will let you know!"

Good color. Left my hair soft and shiny
 August 15, 2012
"My first try with Henna. I did a lot of reading first. Used coffee and vinegar. I suppose the smell with the grassy smell of the henna was strange but not bad. I will mix it differently next time. I think it was too dry. I mixed it per instructions in a plastic bowl, put in bathtub and turned upside down but it would fall off my head in clumps. Still I was able to get it on, put on a plastic cap then wrapped in plastic cooking wrap and relaxed for about two hours. Clean up was easy.
I really do love the color. Mostly I love that my hair is happy after about 8 years of coloring my hair. I don't have grey hair I do have white roots. Great gradient of colors. Natural looking.

Good Stuff and Tips for Application
 March 15, 2012
"First of all, I live in a major metropolitan area and I cannot find this stuff anywhere near this price. It turns my gray hairs lighter brown, so I have a nice streaked look.
Here is how to apply this product much easier. I mix according to directions, using coffee and apple cider vinegar for the grey. Then I put the bowl in the empty bathtub, strip, and kneel over the the bowl and apply with my bare hands. It's easier on the arms, contains the mess and you can get to all parts of your scalp and hair. My hair is long and I find I have enough mud to cover every strand this way. Then I wrap the mess in a plastic grocery bag, then a turby-towel over that. I use a wash cloth to clean off my face and shoulders. It does not stain! Then I just hang out for an hour or so in my bathrobe. When it comes time to rinse out, skip the shampoo and go straight for the conditioner, probably two applications will get it all out. I love the way it smells on my hands and hair afterwards.

Adds Body
 October 26, 2011
"Somebody said it's too messy. Really, it's just like mud packing your hair. It came out kind of dark brown, but most of my hair is dark brown. My grey roots came out a little lighter, so I might try darker next time. It wasn't that hard to do, adds quite a bit of body, and I like it. I also like that I don't have to worry about using chemicals on my hair, which is very fine."

Rainbow Henna, Light Brown
 July 3, 2011
"I have light brown shoulder length hair with 20% gray. Very mousy looking. I used the Neutral first to give it some life and it did but I would now like to see the gray go. so I used the 2oz light brown with the 4 oz Marigold Blonde Golden and black tea with 2 tbsp of vinager and 3 tbsp vanilla yogurt. It brightened my brown hair and turning ALL my gray gray hair a light golden blonde. Very natural looking and a lot more shine using the colored henna then with the neutral. Left my hair feeling great."
