: According to a series of tests I just did ... the
: superdark-longlasting is a function of 2 things: thick, granulated,
: well keratinized skin and plenty of heat ... and terps help. The
: has to be absolutely saturated with dye and hot ... ant that does
the job.

Ok that might be a reason. The summer here in the UK has been rubbish
and the weather is weird. Its Autum (fall) here yet it is still
between 16-20 Degrees Centigrade outside which really is unheard of
at this time of year but the nights are cold. I do tend to leave my
arm out of the bed overnight as i have had times when i have had a
pattern not only on my hand but on my breast or stomach or where ever
else my hand has rested in the night that has caused the henne to re
mosturise - can be quite amusing sometimes. Also i dont want the
henna to flake off in the night.

It's hard to apply henna at any other times on my hand what with 3
children to look after so overnight is normally the time i apply and
steam in the mornings...
