I really disagree here. Right now I have a kilo of fresh henna that
leaves a fabulous stain but---- I've got to sift it 3 times to get it
workable. (Jamila was unavailable this summer so this is what I got
instead.) Still I'm having clogs... This is a huge problem for me. It
takes forever to do 100 grams this way and sifting henna through
nylons is not my idea of fun for the evening.
Since I'm not just hennaing friends at home, I do this for a
business, people pay me and expect to get great designs. If I'm
constantly, and I do mean pretty constantly trying to pluck some
fiber from my cone it really messes up my flow.
It becomes frustrating, you can't achieve the quality of design you
need in the lenght of time needed.
Besides it really isn't fun. It can throw your entire mood out of
whack, make you crabby and lose focus and the smiling henna geisha
attitude drops by the wayside.
So , yes,great staining reliability and color are crucial but if I
can't squeeze it out easily it's just not going to work!
Suppliers, or manufacturers rather, could make a huge impact if they
sifted properly. Saving me and others hours over the nylons and see
huge increases in repeat business.
Right now the only brand that I have chosen to buy repeatedly is
Jamilla, in part to the fine texture.

I think people are taking this a little bit too seriously. People buy
henna for the
: quality of the stain. Ok, so its a bonus if you don't have to sift
but if there was a henna
: that would give a really red colour but you had to sift it, I would
still buy it.
