    Hi There,
    how about this, how about you let us know what questions you have. The internet and all of the information (and unfortunately misinformation) it contains can be your best friend or your worst enemy.
    Any products in particular you have questions about???

    • Hi There,
      You mean Cinnamomum aromaticum, called is also called cassia or Chinese cinnamon to distinguish from Cassia Obovata which is actually in NO WAY related to the cinnamon family at all, so this wuldn't apply to or effect a 'cinnamon allergy"
      Cassia(chinese cinnamon) is also from the bark of a tree and closely resembles ceylon but taste different , Cassia we use for our hair are the dried leaves of a plant from the same family as Henna and again is no at all related to the Cassia Cinnamomum (green powder as opposed to brown , reddish tree bark)
      Hope this helps

        I'm sorry I was away, but did you get around to trying the henna, cocoa, or indigo?
        If not let me know (if you did, LET ME KNOW!)

                  • Butter Queen, I would like to do a monthly Ayurvedic treatment. I henna monthly so I would like to add to henna paste to make the process simple. I add 2 TB. Amla and 1 TB. Brahmi and warm water to my henna paste. Any other suggestions, is the sufficient? I like Rajasthani henna and love the color that I get with this combination.

                      Ho jojo!
                      The only thing to remember the more goodies you add to your henna paste the less color you'll get from it, thats the ONLY drawback. If you are having any issues in particular then I could possibly recommend something else, just let me know!

                        Sharika, I am not having any issues in particular, but I would love recommendations. I am open and like to experiment. My philosophy is "It's just hair. As long as it's healthy I will experiment."

                        • Hi Sharika,
                          I'm considering doing a hibiscus flower rinse. I heard it helps with breakage. I was wondering how long the results last? How do I use it to get the best results? Does it leave a color on black hair?

                              • Not sure if you're still answering questions on this forum, but has anyone touched the topic of indigo yet ? I'm very curious and interested in trying it. I like the idea of henna, I just don't want my hair lightened. Thanks in advance !
