: There is nothing wrong with self promotion CCJ, but when that self
: promotion is at the expense of others, it may not be worth it.

If I was selling henna, this might be self promotion. I don't sell
henna. I don't sell supplies at all. What have I got to promote?
Nothing. Do you see this as an opportunity for everyone to get REAL
about what's in henna, and seek the highest standards? I do. People
have wondered for years why some hennaes seem gritty, why some clump,
why some clog jac tips, why some were peculiarly green. I answered
that question by looking closer.

Deal.

But for 2 or 3 samples I paid cash for every henna I tested. Just
like everyone else. Those few other samples were usually promotions
.. I have nothing to gain by these tests. I do them because I'm here
for henna, and for people who care about henna. If some people are
pissed off, so be it.

If there's a fussing and screaming, follow the money trail. It
doesn't lead to me!
