The producer and exporter of this henna claimed it was 3.2% lawsone and charged extra for the alleged superior quality. When it arrived here, I sent it to an independent certified laboratory for testing. The HPLC tests revealed that it was 1.4% lawsone. When I challenged the exporter, I got the most amazing array of bogus excuses. I'm not going to pretend that this henna is 3.2%, when it's NOT. Aren't you glad I send every shipment to an independent lab, and that I tell you the truth about the contents?

Henna from Yemen
We're trying to get henna from Yemen again. The samples simply haven't been up to standard; there were 1/4 long scraps of plant in the last batch of powder. Perhaps the mills were damaged in the revolution. When we can get you the quality you expect, we'll have it here!
We keep hoping to get you a henna the quality of Celebration with lawsone content 3% or over. Though several exporters claim to have henna with over 3% lawsone, (and I see other people selling it with that claim) when I've sent samples to an an independent certified laboratory, the results have come back 1.1% to 1.4% lawsone. I'll continue to sell henna based on independent laboratory results.
Punjabi Prime was a specific 2008 crop, and it has run out. However, the present crop of Rajasthani Monsoon is very similar. If you loved Punjabi Prime, buy Rajasthani Monsoon.
|Dark of the Moon|
Dark of the moon was a specific 2008 crop and it has run out. However, Rajasthani Twilight is very similar. If you loved Dark of the Moon, buy Rajasthani Twlight.
We no longer carry Jamila, because we have found other hennas to be superior in sift, purity, and lawsone content. If you love Jamila, all of our hennas are equal to or better than Jamila. Our lab tests prove it!

Henna and cassia wiill dye your hair most effectively when they are mixed with an acidic liquid. The acidic liquid keeps the hydrogen atoms intact on the corners of the quinone molecules so the color (lawsone or crysophanic acid) can bind to the keratin in your hair. If these molecules are bound to your hair, the color will not fade or go peculiar. In fact, the color will gradually deepen and look more natural. Dilute lemon juice, orange juice, apple juice, and cranberry juice are all great for mixing. If you don't have any of these handy .... use citric acid!
Add one 6g packet of Ancient Sunrise® Citric Acid to 100g of henna or cassia powder from mehandi.com. Add one additional packet for each additional 100g of henna or cassia.
Would you like to know the real chemistry of how henna works and why an acidic mix gives you the best results?

Henna is good for you and your hair, and you can use it as often as you like!
Mehandi.com sends our best hennas to an independent lab for lawsone content testing, full pesticide assay, and testing for other contaminants. We have already tested several hennas, and within six months we expect to have completed testing all of our hennas. What we have found is that 1/10 of 1% makes a lot of difference in lawsone content, and that no two batches of henna, even from the same supplier and the same crop are exactly the same!
Store-bought henna usually has contaminants, sand, lead, pesticide residue and additional dyes. Because henna is an agricultural product, every batch is different! Mehandi.com buys henna several tons at a time and we send them out for independent laboratory analysis and certification. If you buy from us, you know precisely what you're getting.

Traditionally, henna was believed to have the quality of "Baraka" meaning "blessedness" or "grace". It was believed to be able to avert the evil eye and thwart demons that caused disease, depression and misbehavior. Your regular hair dye never did that for you!
