: I Agree , testing the henna is a great thing to do. :-)))

The brilliant thing about IntelPlay microscope is ... this is an
inexpensive way to get picture of henna at 60x that you can SHOW to
another person and they can compare it with their picture and either
confirm your results or offer their results in contrast. This
actually gives us a way to comparison test something empirical ... not
.... "gee I think its really gooooooooooooood." Good is nice, but how
can you test "good"? You can count dye particles, or particle size
... and compare them from one sample to the next.

I'd like to be able to test lawsone content, but I haven't found an
affordable tool for that can be put in everyone's hands. When I do,
I'll post that on the forum so fast the bandwidth'll smoke.
