Usually ready made henna cones get a bad rep, but I used "Mehak Dulhan Henna" and the quality was very good - not bad for £1.
Tip 1: The henna came out a dark cherry/mahogany colour when left overnight with a lemon/sugar mixture.
Tip 2: Another tip to get a dark colour is to wrap the hand in a plastic bag - this will not only protect your bedding (and face!) from getting henna onto it, but the heat generated will activate the henna to darken further. You could also use a large disposable plastic glove.
Tip 3: Apply oils to moisturise and protect the henna from fading once you have washed or scraped the design off.
