it seems really strange that
: you've had such a problem with the bottles.... do you drum at all,
: play an instrument? I play tabla, darbouka, and sitar, and i really

can do
: something to exercise the muscles in your hands that you're
: with the j-bottle, it should help a lot.

I agree with you about the importance of keeping your hands and
arms strong and supple. I find it's a lot like exercise and sports,
if you have been a couch potato for a while and then suddenly
play 2 hours of tennis or a free weights routine you will probably
be in pain during and after the exercise. On the other hand, if you
are reasonably active, such bursts of activity may cause some
pain the next day, and if you are very active these activities won't
cause any pain during or after. The same is true of any activity
using muscles. I find that if I have not been hennaing for a while
my hand will cramp up after about 3 hours of using a j-bottle but
when I am in full swing of the henna season i don't feel a thing.

That said, your paste must be smooth because trying to squeeze
out clogs can be difficult with a j-bottle. This is especially true of
the j-bottles with pebeo tips. Under normal conditions you
should not have to squeeze a j-bottle very hard; it should be
easier than squeezing a lemon, maybe more like squeezing a
tube of hand lotion.
