This is one of the best henna and the most selling henna in the world. However for people trying to use it for the 1st time please let me tell you that for any pure henna, Please do not expect to see dark color as soon as you apply. Since this is pure henna without chemical. You have to leave henna after applying on your hand body for darker color. The longer you take to wash it the darker the color will come leave for 6 - 8 hours before washing. Indian brides leave henna overnight after applying to get real dark color.
