I have been using natural henna for long time. I know how it feels and smells. I am really sorry, but there is nothing natural in this product. All artificial.It looks like the product has been used for colouring rugs and carpets, not hairs. First of all, it is very expensive , the second , very difficult to apply, doesnt spread smoothly as natural does.One box is not enough for shoulder length hair. Dont buy it, I waisted my time, my money and henna left on the bottom of plastic. It was very difficult to squeeze into hair. The plastic is so hard and feels awful on hands. The saddest thing is it is not real NATURAL HENNA.
