In reply to: Answers posted by Raven on July 16, 2002 at 17:41:06:Commercial premix is known for its less than excellent stains. Most
of the problem is that it takes so long to ship over here. Several
artists on this Forum, including myself, sell premixed paste that is
made just before it's sent, and from high-quality ingredients so you
know it'll work for you. Another problem with the commercial premix
is that much of it is incorrectly labeled as to ingredients, if it
lists them at all. Most of this is harmless, but I don't want
anything on my family's skin that I can't identify.
On the other hand, it's cheaper, relatively easy, and fun to make
your own paste from powder. Again, commercially pre-boxed powders
tend to be old and dead, but if you buy from an artist, you usually
get the same stock they make to use on their clients, so it has to be
good. Also, when working with an artist, especially the terrific
ones who post here, you get a high level of service and commitment to
helping you get the best out of your henna experience.
