Chebaby, I mention that because I noticed you use nupur. I noticed major curl loosening with that one and though it wasn't permanent, I thought I'd never get my curls back! I think there was something off about nupur though because I sometimes noticed a rusty smell with it. I've heard hennas made for hair often contain metallic salts so I wonder if that's what it was. I also thought it was incredibly drying compared to Jamila. IDK I don't want to go back to that brand but I loved the darkening aspect. I've done henna and indigo but wasn't pleased with it either.
