Any advice on what kind? I want deep coppery orange hair. My hair is orangy red now (commercial dye) but has a lot of red in it naturally.
Jamilla, Reshma, Afshan, Rajasthani, Mumtaz?? Are they different shades of red?

henna sooq is awesome, i used to order or go down and purchase my henna from the store in toronto
Other folks here with more experience might be able to correct me!
Because of my particular immune system problems, it was important to me to make sure I was getting BAQ henna, so I don't mind paying the extra for Henna Sooq. Compared with getting my hair dyed red in the salon every 6 weeks, it's practically free!

i used to use the yemeni henna... here are some pics of my hair at the time.
Actually Henna Sooq has operations in both Canada and the USA, and you do not have to pay international shipping if you are in Canada.

I have read yemeni is the most true red, but it is often hard to find due to conflict in the area. I have tried the organic rajasthani blend from henna sooq and liked it but because I have dark brown hair did not see a drastic colour change. I am waiting for an order of the new red raj and it is supposed to more red than the organic rajasthani, which some people claim is more burgundy.
Oooh, I will have to give them another look then! Last time I looked at their site the shipping price they quoted was so high that it would have nearly doubled the final tally and I was afraid of getting nailed by customs on top of that.

Henna sooq ships out of Mississauga, Ontario, so very close to you. I live in Montreal and I get my order in a few days only. They have amazing service.
That is close! I wish it were close enough to pick up in person!
I have thought to buy Jamilla only because it seems to be the most common kind. Everyone has that same box of Jamilla, in addition to the other types here and there. It's that same box of Jamilla that is for sale from Halalco and Hennasooq. Halalco doesn't have the year on their's (Hennasooq does) so might be older, but still the same exact box.
At Halalco, that 100g box is $1.99, at Hennasooq the exact 100g box with the year is $7.99! At Halalco I can get 400g for the same price as 100g from Hennasooq, if I don't care what the year is. I know the year is important but I don't have much money to spend on it and want to get enough for many root applications so I don't have to order again for a long time.
But it has to be pure BAQ henna and I won't need to use as much of the newer stuff, something to think about. Man! This is a hard decision! lol!
Travel time is not an issue. I don't need it for another month or so, anyway. I want my current colouring to fade more and grow out some.
This is a big purchase for me, so I have to think about it before I do it and get the most for my money.
