Hi Karin,

If you want a more brown stain with Kimia, add a terp to her. If you
want to make sure that you stay in the brown range, I would suggest
that you choose a henna powder that is more known for its brown
range. Either of the Kezzis or Navaids are very powerful henna
powders, the stain the really hard to stain body parts excellently,
are as finely sifted and easy to work with as the Kimia or Jamila.
The range of browns is wide and varied. But they don't tend to push
to the reds as Kimia does. But, Kimia offers the flexibility to get
to the reds or the brown range. Kimia with terps will be more in the
brown range on the hard to stain body parts. The reds are most often
found on the hands and feet.

Hope this helps.
