I need to do more testing on nails with terps and non-terps. Some
people's nails are harder and some are softer. If you soak the nails
in hot water or steam them before putting on henna, and steam them
while the henna's on ... the keratin softens and you can get better
color uptake. It's been my experience that there's better color
without terps, but that could be circumstantial. Lawsone molecules
being the same size wherever they are ... I think the characteristics
of keratin is more the deciding factor.
