: There are lots of places to buy henna online, and I've heard that
: henna from certain sites usually result in certain colors. I'm
: looking for a place to buy online whose henna generally results in
: dark cherry stains.

The true reds are the most elusive colors to get. Kimia (which I and
Maureen sell) is known for giving reds, but the color ranges from
cherry red through dark chocolate depending on the person wearing it,
even in the same batch. Moroccan henna usually gives me deep browns
but when I last tried it at Sirius NYC, it went deep red-orange on
mw. Also consider that the color will usually darken over time, so
what was red the first day can be almost black the second. In
general, terp oils brown out the reds, so your best bet is to go
terpless.
