Hi, Basimah.

My hair isn't quite as long as yours, it's about 3 inches below my
waist, but I henna my hair regularly. It's definitely easier (and
less messy) with short hair, but I certainly wouldn't let long hair
stop you! I find a hair color brush works very well when applying
henna to long hair.

You would probably need 3 boxes of henna to cover your hair, or about
300-400 grams. You may need a little less or a little more but
that's probably a good amount to start with. You may be able to find
a better price by buying in bulk.

One thing to keep in mind if you use skin quality henna, make sure
you put cream or petroleum jelly around your hairline and over your
ears so they don't get stained. If you buy boxes of henna for hair
you probably won't need to worry about that as much.

Let us know how it goes if you decide to go ahead.
