I love red henna. It's my favorite color. I know many people love the super dark, almost black/red henna, but I love the ruby red.
Here is a color sample of the 2007 harvest of Jamila henna. The paste stains very quickly, which is great for festivals, but it also gives this lovely color.
Please forgive the pattern. It is not my best work (I was trying a new style a little later in the evening than I usually do) but I had to see the color.
This is color only 12 hours after the paste was removed! More photos coming soon.
