My Kimia took about 48 hours to completely darken.

I was saddened - the lavender EO browned it out. No lovely reds at
all :-(

It *did* turn a neat leathery brown shade, though!


: The Kimia I mixed up Monday (powder, lemon juice, sugar)was finally
: ready to use yesterday so I did a whole hand design so I could see
: it reacts to both sides of my hand. I steamed and L/S'ed then
: for the overnight wait. I steamed again before removing the paste
: I was up two hours early this morning because I was so excited to
: how the Kimia did. I was kind of disappointed.
: The color on the palm was pretty good but nothing spectacular,
: much the same that I get with the rest of the hennas I've tried.
: back of my hand was just bearly visible.
: They have darkened a bit through the day, the palm is that dark
: that you get when you first take the paste off a really good stain.
: The back got a little bit darker, but looks like a stain that's more
: on it's way out than on it's way up. This is very annoying because
: it's one of the best patterns I've ever done. :(
: So my question is this, is Kimia as slow to darken as it is to
: it's dye?
