Hair quality Jamila Henna Powder will give you beautiful red tones and highlights.
Jamila Henna for Hair benefits by:
Batch Yield 2013
Jamila henna powder comes in two varieties.
Summer Crop BAQ: This quality is used by professional henna artists, and is very popular amongst natural hair care lovers. This henna powder is the most finely sifted of the two varieties of Jamila henna powder available, and contains the best leaves of the henna plant that contain the most dye content. It also is so creamy it washes out easily from your hair. It currently comes infoil packaging that is marked in red writing "premium quality JAMILA henna 2011" and dye content is now marked. It comes inside a shiny Jamila henna box.
Henna for Hair: This henna comes packaged inside a clear cellophane package, inside of a sealed, plain Jamila box that is marked inside with "Henna for Hair". There will be no date marked on the box. The sift is a lesser quality, but still much better then store bought quality henna powders. The henna leaves chosen for this quality are from leaves that are lower on the henna plant. The dye content is not as high as the premium quality Jamila henna. It is popular for hair usage. This is a pure henna powder, but it is unfairly named body art quality, when in fact no henna artist would use it for body art. So it's not a true body art quality henna powder. How much you will need depends on your hair length, and thickness. This will give you a generally idea of how much you’ll need for 1 application: Above ear length: 50-75 grams Shoulder length: 100-125 grams Bra strap length or mid-back: 150-175 grams Lower back (above hips): 200 to 225 grams Hip/Waist length: 250 to 300 grams

I mixed with lemon juice for 2-4 hours like the package suggested and left it on overnight. My hair is 16 inches long and thick and 2 boxes (200g) made plenty of goo to cover it all. My hair was a orange and fried for the first day because I shampooed before dying (over a year washing with only raw honey once a week) but the color matured to warm reddish brown (started with medium brown) and my natural oils are back now. The dull ashy parts and sun damage from two years working in construction are almost completely cover, less shedding when I comb, and my hair has never been this smooth! Already looking forward to doing it again and wondering how it would work on my beard. I also love that it smells like fresh alfalfa, reminds me of kittens in the barn when I was a child.

I mixed my mix with around 150 grams of henna and 2 cups of green tea. I applied it. Left in overnight, filled my bathtub with water and laid in it. Did my styling and boy oh boy. After one use, I see the difference. My hair is so shiny and it feels stronger. I plan to use it every week as long as i can afford it. I stingily recommend it.

I have naturally curly 3c/4a hair. I used the Jamila Henna summer crop 2013 for hair. I kept it simple mixing it with water only. Then once the dye released added a bit of conditioner. I let it process on my hair for 5 hrs. I filled my stainless steel kitchen sink up, dunked my hair a few times then used the sprayer to rinse the rest out. It rinsed out easily and I had no clean up or stains in my sink.
My gray hairs turned more orange and were a bit brassy in some areas but I quickly followed up with Indigo which took in almost all areas. I can still see a few orangey hairs around my hair line but I'm ok with it.
I also ordered the Amla powder and oil. I will treat my hair this weekend with these too for added shine and moisture.
I'm happy I've found a natural way of dyeing my hair as I've since become allergic to chemical dyes.
Khadijah any recommendations you can give me for achieving burgundy highlights on my gray hairs would be appreciated. Also when I get ready to do a touch up do I do the entire process again or just use Indigo?
I'm anxious to try many more products!!!

I have naturally straight black hair, probably medium density/thickness, and down to my waist. I found that 100g of this henna was enough to treat my entire head, though obviously since my hair is black it didn't really show if I missed any pieces. If you have lighter hair, you should probably mix more to be safe.
I mixed mine with black tea and a bit of olive oil, but I found that it thickened as it sat, so by the time I came back to color my hair, it was thicker than I was aiming for and difficult to apply evenly. I recommend mixing in a little more water or tea to make it easier.
It gave my hair a very pretty burgundy hue where the light hit it. I feel that my hair is smoother, shinier, and stronger now. I'll be applying henna again soon and will return to this product.

I'm a natural redhead, but the color has faded over the last ten years and also have about 25% grey. I have chemically dyed my hair for many years, but the last year or so I have used Lush caca rouge, since it's hard to get your hands on good henna here in Norway. But since I experienced that the red faded too fast (the greys turned up again in like a week), I wanted to try real henna and ended up here. After reading and reading and reading here on this site, I ordered henna and did a lot of testing for dye release. It was kinda time consuming, but I wanted to be sure that the result would be good. I mixed the henna with herbal chamomile tea, and testet for dye release every half hour for 5 hours and threw the mix in the freezer for use the next morning (also put some of the mix in another bag for later use on my roots). Applying it was so easy, and not messy at all. I did my roots first and then I mixed the rest of the paste with some conditioner and Golden Jojoba oil and applyed to the lengths. That was messy, due to the mix got very runny. Rinsed it out after four hours (very easy), and the color turned out amazing. The color was red/orange at first, but now after a week I think it's more like warm copper. My grey hair turned out the same color as the rest of my hair (I think), and it covered it 100%. I think that the information on Henna Sooq site and the blog helped me get a perfect result (I read all of it he he) :) I'm so happy and will definately order more :) The shipping to Norway worked out perfect ;) I must apologize for my bad english.

I like this product because it covers this gray with Indigo powder. Also I like how it strengthens my hair.

I mixed my henna with a vinegar and water mixture with about 1 parts vinegar and 3 parts water.
I did a color test on my palm and the henna seemed ready at about 2 hours. At first the color was a vibrant orange but it was much darker after 24 hours. In addition the smell mostly went away within 2 washes.
My hair was a dark ashy blond/light brown color and I ended up with a deep red color. I like it because is changes hue depending on the light and it has a vibrant shine which makes the color pop out.
This is a great product for any first time henna users.

The henna was fairly easy to work with, I didn't make a mess with it and washing it out was actually really easy. The color I got was a very shiny orange-red that's very pretty and my hair is as soft as a kitten. I'm definitely going to keep using it because it's easy on my hair and my wallet. The free gloves were also a nice touch.
