Cool! I think the BEST shot for Yemen Shihri is large body work, and
for brilliant (though transitory, on my skin) reds. When the paste
first comes off, and through the first 12 hours, the red is
INTENSE!!!!! The Harazi doesn't have quite the "punch" that the Shiri
does on the hands, but it's holding even in larger body areas
(terped). Tell the supplier EXACTLY what you expect out of sifting!

Funny story about Yemeni full body henna (I've seen a few pics, and
it's pretty cool). An Orthodox Jew from the Boston area moved to
Israel and married a Yemenite girl (and also aquired a mother in law
who thought he was full of crap). He was debating with a Dutch Rabbi
in Israel whether or not henna was really "Jewish" enough.. (Now you
know WHY the Yemeni mother in law thought he was full of crap). I
mentioned in one a few dozen emails back and forth about henna that
Yemeni women hennaed legs up to knees at least, full arms, chest and
all .... and he responded "OUR women would do NO such thing, they
NEVER show their legs!" (The Yemeni mother in law had to remind him,
once again, that he was full of crap, and they certainly DID henna up
the knees and farther).
