Dark, darker, darkest!

So many people ask me how to get dark henna? What is the best henna to use? What is the best recipe? How long to leave it on? How long does it last? While there really are may factors involved. The most basic are the following:

1. Use a freshly-mixed natural henna that has been mixed with high-quality essential oils.

2. Leave the henna on as long as possible (8 hours to overnight) and scrape it off instead of washing. Avoid water for 24 hours.

Even if henna doesn't turn "black cherry" on the palms, it always turns a range of beautiful earthy tones, which vary depending on how long you leave it on and the quality of the henna powder.
