helps with dye release. I haven't noticed any difference in my
paste, either. But tamarind is delicious, tangy!
Your best bet for dark henna is fresh powder (I find Jamila to be
very consistent), lemon juice and an essential oil with terps -- see
CCJ's Sirius recipes.
Welcome back to the henna world! Missed you!
