Nicole,

: I'm thinking that I might invest in some fresh powder for
: the summer. [snip] it would kind of be a waste for me to
: buy a lot at one time.
:
I'm in the same boat; I don't have a clientele or a business, so I
really don't need to buy a lot of henna at once. But fresh henna is
not expensive; many of the vendors online will sell you 100g for $10
or less. And by weight, it's probably cheaper than buying pre-made
paste.

One thing you might consider is a sampler pack of fresh henna
powders. Maureen at everydayhenna.com will sell you such a product
for about $15, and I think Lauren has something similar at
hennadancer.com. A sample pack may not be the absolute cheapest way
to buy henna, but I learned the hard way that buying cheap henna
often means you get stale henna, and that's just a waste of money.
Plus, with a sampler pack, you get to try different kinds of henna,
which I found to be quite a lot of fun and instructive, too.

: Anyway getting to the point, what do you feel is the best powder,
for
: both the stain, and cost?

Aha, here you will get many answers. This is the question I asked of
Maureen that started it all. ;) Perhaps I'll just leave it to the
more experienced henna folk to share their feelings on this.

-P
