: has anyone tried this to get dark color?
: have you used "vicks balm" after henna application
: to get dark color, a henna expert here told me that
: it contains same coloring ingredient as clove oil!
: important : just vicks balm, no other vaseline or stuff like that,

Vics Vaporub has monoterpene alcohols (terps), and has of the same
ones as in the Serious Mixes. Clove oil isn't a coloring ingredient.
It does, however, contain eugenol, which is a monoterpene alcohol
that improves dye release and darkening.

Some people report good results with vaporub, but I didn't get as good
results applying the stuff after the henna went on as I get by adding
the terps straight into the mix.
