Re: making a stain last

superdark-longlasting is a function of 2 things: thick, granulated,
well keratinized skin and plenty of heat ... and terps help. The skin
has to be absolutely saturated with dye and hot ... ant that does the job.
If your skin is thin and glossy ... no matter what you do, you won't
get the saturation and long lasting darkness.
I've had terped henna stay coffee-dark until the last day ... but that
tends to happen on summertime skin, or with lots of extra heat. Skin
cells grow faster in the summer, and I suspect they have different
characteristics for henna staining.
