This Henna kit was a big success at my nieces birthday party. Only two things could have improved our experience. #1-Since I didn't have much experience with Henna before this, I didn't realize that the dye was only "active"/"available" for a certain amount of time. I made the henna in advance by two nights and by the time the party came, the dye didn't stain nearly at all once we applied it at the party, but the ones we did as practice stained very well.
#2- The instructions are almost too simple. I really needed some additinoal information to make the est Henna. For example, most Henna artists use lemon juice or other acidic liquid instead of water to make the stain darker. Several also recommended against using generic Mehndi oil unless the ingredients are listed. Other than that, we had a lot of fun and I look forward to doing mroe henna in the future.
