Reading all of the good things about henna made me wanna try it too. I went to Henry's today and bought some. I have a couple questions, has anyone ever heard of the brand, Light Mountain Natural? They have a bunch of different colors and they even have a color chart in the store that shows u what color ur hair is likely to turn which was very helpful. So I got the red hoping that it's not gonna be too red. The ingredients say, Red henna (lawsonia inermis) and that's it. My other question is, does anyone know why it says not to use metal bowls, mixing utensils etc.? I'm also not sure about how to mix it. It comes with instructions but I see some of u guys talking about adding olive oil and honey... If I wanna add that stuff do I completely omit the water or reduce it...?
