In reply to: these tests mean a lot to someone like me posted by Alissa on August 28, 2002 at 15:32:48:Stain is the most important thing. However its a pain to have to
hassle with clogs (especially repeated clogs) no matter what the tool
of choice is. Its interesting to me to know that some powders have
more grit and such in them only for the fact of it's not just my
imagination that some powders were harder to work with than others.
Hopefully Alissa is right and those who actully supply the henna
powder for the folks here to sell will get the idea and insure that
what they send is as clean and gunk free as possible.
I suspect that these tests will not effect the sales of the varying
henna brands those on the forum supply. (And what it comes across to
me anyway, is the underlying reason some are getting so worked up
over these tests) It simply gives folks who buy from them a heads up
that they may want or need to sift what they get from the varying
suppliers, as well as deal with the occational clog. Something that
is nice to know ahead of time.
Personally there are only two henna suppliers I'll buy from anymore,
a decicison that I made a long time ago based on the stain quality,
how well the powder itself holds up to my peculiar way of storing and
lack of hassles and clogs. These tests won't change that in one bit,
and I suspect it won't change what powders others prefer to buy
either. Its just an interesting bit of info that brings us that much
more knowledge about the henna we are all so passionate about.
Just my few ramblings...take them or leave them as you like.
