Wow! I'm really grateful to you gals for all the info/feedback/updates about the amla and other stuff
Your experience and advice comes at a perfect time ... it helped me to finally make my decision to take the henna/amla/indigo plunge! I'm fixing to order some things from mehandi.com tomorrow
I plan to post the results. Please wish me luck!
(PS I still have some q.s and comments for the last few posters above - will post those tonight.)
