Rainbow Research Henna?

I was thinking about henna-ing my hair, and I'm getting a lot of links to hennaforhair, but (to save on shipping) I usually like to get my things in bulk, and Mothernature.com, where I buy my skincare things, has this brand and Light Mountain Natural.


Has anyone tried it? Is it good for hair? Should I just suck it up and get the more expensive brand?

Hope you can help!

I've heard a lot of complaints about the Rainbow Henna. If you can find someone who sells the Jamila Henna, I've heard a lot of people get good results with that brand.

But I've never read a single good thing about Rainbow Henna.

I don't know where you live but if you have any sort of ethnic market's they usually have it (Arabic, Indian, Armenian). I get mine there and it's about $3-4 and I got Reshma Henna and I get my Amla and all the other herbs there are well.

I had a feeling that RRH was a bit iffy

Henna for hair is a good site and worth reading through for the basics. There are also henna threads here on NC.

Definitely stay away from RRH. I initially tried it many years back and it worked well. Then just a couple of years ago I decided to use henna again, so I used RRH. That go round it was pretty much a disaster. It looked like I used cheap peroxide lightener on my hair.

I used Rainbow Research brand for a few years. I loved it because it was a mixture of henna and other stuff for my dark brown hair. Made my hair shiny and healthy (and it was dull and dry at the time. before I found NC).
Then I started to go grey and wanted to go natural so I stopped using it. But I like it alot.

I have dark hair but use the henna to help cover a horrible salon error. I get it from a local health food coop and I found where you can also order it online. I think Whole Foods carries it as well.

so glad i checked here first!

I'm taking this off my list of brands to try.
I used it, but I did not like it at all. I had previously used Surya Henna. I applied it and left it in my hair overnight. When I rinsed it out, my hair felt soft and it had a nice shine. 2 months later, I used Rainbow. With the Rainbow Henna, which I only left in for about 1 1/2 hours as it specified because I used a color. (The Surya Henna was not a color, I was using it for the conditioning benefits) The Rainbow Henna seemed to change the texture of my hair, and not for the better. Thank goodness I have a close cut, so by the time I get my next hair cut, it will all be out. I would not recommend this Henna. Stick with the PURE hennas. I will be going back to my Surya Henna. Lesson learned: If you find something that works for ya, stick to it!
