Re: Red Henna???

: I don't know what this stuff is, maybe just red dye?
I can think of a few things that it might be and henna certainly isn't
on that list, much less 100% pure henna!
I'd be very grateful if you'd send me a sample of what you got! I want
to put it under the microscope and have a look at it. An unopened box
would be preferable ... but if you don't have a whole box, could you
send me a clean spoonful in a clean ziploc bag, labeled with date
purchased, where purchased, brand name, country of origin ...
information like that. I want to micropic EVERY thing that's sold
with the name HENNA on the box to get some sense of what all is out
there. There's never been a public database of micropics of henna
before, and it can be very useful. Just with 50 hennas
microphotographed, you can see that Indian henna has different
characteristics from Moroccan, Pakistani, and Irani. The more
samples, the better the database!
Could you send it to

4237 Klein Ave.
Thanks so much!
