I had used a mix of lemon water (lemon juice + water in a spray bottle) and leave-in condish several times a week for 2 weeks in anticipation of using henna. I did this because I expected henna would make my hair darker. Using henna over time has already darkened it a little, but I got darkness just from 1 application this time. I noticed the stain on my hands was much redder and darker than it was in the past. This is definitely deeper though I didn't get as much red from it as I expected. I also didn't notice it got my grays any better than Jamila which surprised me but I always have a hard time applying henna evenly. All in all, I'm pretty happy so far. I still want to use Jamila as an add-in because it's cheaper but I do want to use the Yemeni alone to see what it does. Maybe I'll try this flaxseed gel I read about here so I can better apply my henna. Will crushed flaxseeds work b/c that's all I can find? Or does anyone know where I can get flaxseed gel for not a ton of money? Thanks.
DO NOT try to make flaxseed gel from milled flaxseed. It is an absolute disaster. Don't ask me how I know. I bought some once from a lady on Etsy. I forgot the company's name. Did you go to health food store? That is where I buy my seeds.
