thanks for sharing this! I would never have thought of using apple sauce/henna together but since I am due for a henna treatment I will give this combo a try.I used apple sauce today in my henna mix and it worked out very well. I mixed 3 packs of 35g Jamila with room temperature water and one pack of no sugar added Mott's Applesauce (3.9 oz size). Sugar definitely does wonder for henna because my mix was smoother than it has ever been. After about 90 minutes it left a stain on my hand but I still let it sit overnight.
In the morning the stain on my hand was a rich burgundy color. I applied some coconut oil to my dry twist out (it had been rinsed days before) and then applied the henna with my applicator bottle and left it in for 4 hours. It rinsed really well and I only had to cowash twice to get it all out. I used V05 Strawberries and Cream mixed with EVOO. I think I am going to stick with this mix for awhile.
