I have little gray hair but what I have is WHITE. Henna doesn't phase it or at least mine doesn't. It takes several applications and even then you can still tell it's a grey hair! I'm looking at Red Raj and wondering if it's any better.... Is it finely sifted like Jamila b/c one of the reviewers said their's was a bit grainy?
I find red raj to be grainy, be sure to strain the henna before applying. I had bits of twigs in my hair after numerous washings.
Thanks, that's what I was worried about. I know mehandi.com sells henna specifically for African hair. After using Rainbow, I see why there is a market for that! Though, I've never had probs with BAQ Jamila on that. Was just hoping to find something with stronger color output. Might try it, can't decide...
Mix it ahead of time and freeze it for a week+. Results should be more intense.
