Jamila Henna?
 
I have been reading the henna threads with great interest! Thanks ladies for such great info. The thought of mixing and buying the right products and not knowing what color I may get is totally intimidating to me. Just when I finally caught on to what BAQ henna means, someone mentions Jamila. Can someone kindly tell me what the difference is between Jamila and the regular henna sold by Catherine? Thanks!!;)

The Jamila is Catherine's "special stash". :)
It apparently gives really deep, amazing color...it's more expensive than the regular stuff, but according to those who use it, it's totally worth it.
I ordered some and can't wait to use it.

I know Sareca will be replying to this thread soon...she seems to be the jamila expert 'round here! :lol:

Jamila Henna is the kind that grows in Pakastan and is apparently of much superior quality than those grown elsewhere (India, Morocco, Yemen, etc.) Read about the different kinds of henna here: http://www.hennapage.com/henna/encyc...wing/Pakistan/

Catherine is not the only one to sell Jamila, if you do a google seach for "jamila henna" you'll find lots of other websites, like these:

http://www.henname.net/henna.html (based on my research, this is the cheapest place to purchase but if yall find it elsewhere cheaper, PLEASE let me know.

http://www.hennacaravan.com/shop/henna.html

http://www.mehndiskinart.com/henna_kits.htm

Lavendar: Don't be intimated and you can know with certainty what color you will obtain by conducting a "harvest test" where you save hairs from your brush/comb and test them in different mixes before doing your entire head.

Tee-hee. :grin:

Cosigning w/ my henna girls. Jamila stains darker faster and there are none of the 'leftovers' that make rinsing henna a pain. Jamila is the same price as all the other hennas sold by mehndiskinart.com. Catherine from hennaforhair.com charges more. Don't get me wrong I've loved the other BAQ hennas I've used, but my least favorite thing about henna is rinsing the leftovers (little veins and leaves) out. When I started using Jamila I feel in love with henna all over again. :dinner:

Unfortunately no, Jamila is red henna. :( You could use Jamila without releasing it, but you'd still have some color deposited it just wouldn't be much.

To get really black hair, you'll want to do a two step method, as reccomended by some henna users.

First you dye your hair with the henna...leave it on for a couple of hours and your grey hairs will turn bright red. Don't be scurred, that's just the first step! ;)

After that I do a 2/3 indigo 1/3 henna mix on my hair...and get a super shiny dark brown with just a hint of auburn highlights. To get jet black, just use the indigo by itself.

Good luck, and enjoy!

Thanks so much!! This will be the way I go for hair color! How often do you Henna. (sorry for all the question.)

Henna is red. Indigo is blue-black. I started using henna to cover my gray after a bad temp dye experience. Henna will make grey hair orange, but orange blends better w/ dark hair than white. Indigo will make them a coppery red brown color. I have to search to find my grey hair now and I have the perk of crazy henna shine and conditioning.

I just finished telling ekomba how I indigo my hair... http://www.longhaircareforum.com/sho...82&postcount=8. I mix up about 300mgs but I usually have some leftover.

I've done it twice so far, with great results each time...the second time I just mixed the henna and indigo together, and didn't have to do the two step process.

I plan on using henna and/or indigo at least once every couple of weeks.

SARECA! SARECA! I hold you totally responsible for this flagrant disregard for my bank account, especially since I have over 350 grams of perfectly good FNWL henna. I just order 400 grams of jamila henna powder from http://www.henname.net/henna.html for $29.00 (22.99 + $7 S&H).

This don't make no sense and if that jamila ain't the TOTAL ISH, ima come looking for you . . .

Girl, you know I will be giving you smoochies for days! You're the one who got this whole Henna Revolution going and you haven't steered me wrong yet so I ordered 400 grams (not 100g, not 200g, not 300g, but 400g of the stuff 'cause I have feeling you're totally right, as usual!).

Plus, I've been researching jamila and all the different kinds of henna and where they're cultivated and how they're different and WHY they're different and there's just a UNIVERSAL agreement that jamila henna from Pakistan is the highest quality most superior henna on the planet. And there you are pushing the stuff like a dang drug dealer. Soooo, what's a henna junkie like me gonna do? *shakes head* It just don't make NO kinda sense . . .

I'm posting this on every henna thread. It's a cautionary tale about compound henna. http://www.longhaircareforum.com/sho...04&postcount=1

Okay, I received my jamila henna today and already have a batch waiting for color release so I can henna tomorow. My recipe:

-50 grams jamila henna
-1/2 distilled water & 1/2 red wine vinegar - warm, not hot

Mixed up to form a soft pudding like paste, cover with plastic and then aluminum foil. My mix is now sitting in the boiler room which is the warmest room in my house.

The jamila is much much smoother than either mehandi or FNWL henna. It is super fine and mixed up nice and easy without any lumps. I will review results tomorrow after using.

I order 400 grams and received 4 boxes (100 grams each) and the boxes are labeled: Superior Quality Henna Jamila manufactured by: Abid & Company (Pvt) Ltd., P.O. Box 270 Lahore Pakistan. Since 1963 www.jamila.com.pk Made in Pakistan. Super Sift, Summer Crop 2006. MFG June 2006. Exp May 2009.

The 400 grams cost $29.99 total ($22.99 + $8 S&H) and I received within 3 business days of ordering.

too be honest I don't know one single thing about henna coloring. I will do a search. One question (or two)..........is it safe for natural hair? Is the color permenant?
