I alternate. I have two henna creams. Surya which I dont think works well and Reshma which works better. I have a pure henna powder I got at Tunisian store but it doesnt say what kind. Only made in Lebanon. I have ordered raj from henna sooq and it made my grays light orangy. I didnt like it. But then I did mix it with tea because Im terrified to overdo the red because my har already has red undertones. I like the creams because I dont like applying to my whole head and having to help my hair recover from henna shock.
