henna kit uniformity
  • Hey,

    So we've on occasion purchased the mehndi henna kits. And after 3-4 pretty much know what to expect. However, we picked one up today, and after mixing the mordant it has a completely different texture. Slimly, doesn't stick to the side of the bottle. allowing it to develop only slightly impreoved this.

    It's completely usable, i'm just curious if this could be a different type of henna then what we've normally had. or could it be something else, age, mordant, etc
  • I don't have any hard and fast idea of why the henna has mixed up with a different consistancy than you've experiernced previously, however, my general experience with most things grown suggest that the difference could be anything from one season's rainfall on the henna crop to a different soil composition to the mill using a different cutting blade on the plant material.
