Default Reshma Henna

I tried reshma henna, which is supposed to be 100% herbal, for my first henna. it didn't do much and made my hair dry, which might have been due to the apple cider vinegar. The smell was awful though, like rotten eggs, and it had this yellowish tinge. The next time i decided to try jamila instead. The jamila henna had a much better smell and had a darker natural looking color. Ive read some posts about reshma actually being cassia, but cassia is supposed to be neutral and the reshma gave my dark brown hair a reddish tinge. Has anyone else used reshma brand henna?

I just used the Reshma brand for my first henna treatment ever and I used it a second time for a henna gloss one week later. I have heard mixed reviews about this brand, but as far as I can tell it was worked great for me. On CurlyNikki's blog, I saw a fellow reader that Reshma yielded beautiful results for (it gave her dark brown hair a rich reddish auburn glow, it was amazing). I plan on experimenting with a few other brands, so I can make an informed judgement, but so far I like the Reshma. I got it for $1.79 for 200grams (I got this at my local Indian market) and I see that Jamilla is more than twice that and you only get 100grams (I can only seem to find this online). If you have tried both, do you see a great difference?
