Experiments with henna continues. Trying a new brand of henna. This henna was bought in a little ecomagazine for 130 rubles (100g) the price is slightly high, when compared with the lash, but also higher than the brands now, of course, and phytocosmetics.
Henna is Packed in a plastic zip-package and carton minimalist ECO-box. I love these upakovochki as lash or armel - nothing more.
I decided to make a batch of yogurt. By the way on its length usually use 100 g, and yogurt used 75 grams - more than enough. Yogurt 1.5 cups warmed on a water bath (not boiling) and then get the cheese:) I added henna'd have Vymetal, added the juice of half a lemon, turned out gustavito therefore diluted a bit with water, let infuse the mix for about 15 minutes and started to apply to freshly washed, towel-dried hair.
The mixture is very plastic and is applied just like regular shampoo , I think to the credit of yogurt.
She henna in consistency as the powder is very fine and very pigmented, on my fingers and forehead immediately left yellow stains anywhere and is not removed in time with a napkin. I went with a mixture on the head for 1.5 hours, because it no longer forces - everything started to flow and very annoying. Happy with the result. Voluminous hair clean and soft + color see for yourself.
Photographed with flash because it was getting dark, and in the sun the hair look brighter with rajakrishnan tints and shiny, and the room with the suit. The lighting is dark chestnut.
I have tried multiple brands of henna:
Now, of course, the Iranian choice - an excellent ratio quality/ price . Grinding of small, medium pigmentation (sometimes takes a little) you need to watch the expiration date. Henna usually does not write the date of collection, and write the end of shelf life, but about the shelf life of henna 3 years )))) so consider how much she has lain in warehouses and shelves. Cost about 20 rubles per 25 g.
Phytocosmetics Iranian Extra - perhaps the worst of all tested, the grind is horrible - really pours when applied, the pigmentation is average or below average - again, depends more on freshness rather. The cost of 15 rubles per 25 g.
Lash (take brown) - the pigmentation is great, but too greasy ( from oils) and hair even after two washes as thick and suffocating smell of cloves a headache not only for me until she was painted. And I think the color effect is not worth 590 rubles per tile 320 g (that is how much it costs the shop lush).
Henna armel Indian - pleased, the grinding is not so powdery, but fine, meeting speck, but the pigmentation on top. The cost of 100 rubles - 100 g Can, of course, caught fresh. Very very pleased.
Finally , henna, OOO "soap nuts" (about her opinion) a very good grind and pigmentation. And the most fragrant henna first ( probably because fresh). Cost 130 rubles per 100 g.
