If you do not want the color of henna, try cassia or neutral henna. You get the same benefits without the color. Do your research before the plunge. I have never looked back.

Okay, I'll research it tomorrow!

There is a "sticky" thread about henna in the 4a forum that's pretty helpful.

The CurlyNikki blog (at the top right tab) has a lot of info on henna too.
