im very disappointed that you got the henna from the shelf. I dont
think i was clear enough when i said he keeps his in store stock on
the shelves most of the time. When i order henna from him, i ask him
to get the henna from wherever he gets it. It usually is fresher than
the ones that he has on the shelves. I guess it depends on individual
results as well, because ive gotten better stains with his Jamila
henna than with Jamila henna i bought from Castle Art or other

: Anne and I followed Jamila's advice to try a store here in
: Brooklyn that carries Jamila henna. We asked for a box that
: hadn't been sitting in the sun and bought it for $3. it was in the
: box which was wrapped in cellophane. We got it home, opened
: it and found that the plastic bag it was in had a hole in it. We
: opened the bag of henna and itwas a light olive green and barely
: had a smell. When we mixed it up it was quite big
: pieces but just the overall powder was not finely sifted. I had
: this same problem the last time I bought Jamila over the
: counter...i even sent some to Nick thinking it was the good stuff
: and he said it was awful.
: I got a sample of the jamila from last summer from Natasha and
: the fineness of it was to die for...the consistency was like
: caramel when you mixed it. it was truly a dream so this stuff was
: such a disappointment.
: Any ideas why there is such a difference in quality between store
: bought Jamila and the stuff from suppliers?
