Adthomas, I'll take your word for it! I'm not sure I want to attempt making my own anyway even though people say it's easy to do. I think I'll just try to do a more careful job of applying it. Thanks!

Jo, it's only been recently that I've been using frozen henna. I'll make a big batch and save 1/2 of it because I've heard the stain is better that way. I figured it would be redder not darker. I guess that's why my hair is getting so dark from henna lately. Thanks for the info!
