If they all test poorly, we'll know they were cooked and I'll send you fresh ones. n/t

: : : Hi Lauren,
: : :
: : : It just didn't stain as well (on me) as the Ojai Body Arts or
: : Kenzi's,
: : : with the same recipe, treatment, etc, and all throughout the
life
: : cycle
: : : of the batch (I did both hands and some on a foot as well).
The
: : color
: : : was brick red with nothing darker (except the spots I went over
: : twice).
: : : And no, I'd *never* store my henna near a radiator! I keep it
in
: : the
: : : fridge, sealed from light, ALWAYS. Learned that lesson very
early
: : on
: : : with "why hair henna doesn't stain the skin" - long before I
ever
: : : called myself a professional.
: : : It did last a long time though, in that orange-can't-scrub-off
way
: : that
: : : terped hennaes seem to...no memorable color to begin with and
slow
: : : demise.
: : : thanks,
: : :
: : : Anne
: : :
: : : : I had a bunch of samples of various hennas to give out at
Sirius
: : : : NYC. A while back, Anne posted that she had
gotten "forgettable"
: : : : results with one of them, the Maghriba from Morocco. I have
been
: : : : using the same batch on myself and others frequently and have
: : been
: : : : selling it and gotten feedback, and it has always stained
really
: : dark
: : : : and lasted a long time. I am wondering if any of the rest of
you
: : who
: : : : had samples of this henna (or the others) had similar results
to
: : : : Anne. I want to track down what made Maghriba perform so out
of
: : : : character. I am wondering if maybe it was too close to the
: : radiator
: : : : in the apartment or something.
: : : : Lauren
