Hi Cristiane,

I sell 11 body quality henna powders and the colors range from bright
green through to medium green, to dark green, to khaki (olive green)
to deep browns. They are all perfectly fresh and excellent henna
powders. Don't worry about the color. What you want to know is
whether or not it will provide stains for you. Try some out and if
it stains a respectible reddish, to brown to deep reds to deep browns
and burgundy color for you, then you have a decent henna powder. The
original coloring of the stain will probably be orange to
tan color. But the color will deepen over the next day or so. Mix
your henna powder with just lemon juice. If it is good henna powder,
it should provide you a good stain. Mix it and let it sit covered
for about a day. If it provides the stain you want after being on
the skin for 4 or more hours. You have a henna powder you can use.
If after 4 hours you have no stain or just a weak stain that does not
develop. Don't invest anymore money in that henna powder. It is old
and the stock at the store you bought it from is not a new stock of
fresh henna powder. As other people have already said. Most of the
online vendors here on the forum would ship to you with no problem.
Check out the various websites and henna powders offered and the cost
of shipping. You may see something that works for you.

Hopefully you can get your hands on some good henna powder so you can
get some good henna stains on you.

Take care.
