I went back to my Indian store and bought more products:

Amla powder - to be used on my skin and hair. I'm going to make an Amla face mask and also mix the Amla powder with my henna to tone down the redness and and gain more moisture/conditioning.


Jamila Henna and Nesh Henna. The Nesh brand is from India and I'm told that the Indian hennas release more quickly. We'll see.

My only complaint is that they don't carry any Cassia powder - there are a couple more Indian stores nearby that I may try to find it at.

I also got some really good pastries there - yum!!!
