Henna darkens with every application, but there’s hope if you went too far! I lightened my too-dark henna to natural ginger copper without damage.

    I’ve tried henna and other herbal hair colors for many years by many different brands, but this is the first and only one that I’m really happy with. Barely any clumps, easy application, no dripping, minimal staining and almost no color-bleeding in the shower (which is so rare with henna!). My scalp is very, very, VERY sensitive but I havent had any issues with this color yet. the color itself is absolutely stunning, too. Very natural and ginger-y. I’m very happy with the product and customer service & will always come back to this beautiful color. 🙂

    I switched from full-strength henna to Genasi using a graduated mix of the two for a series of root applications, and I have to say–I’m really excited to finally be using just Genasi 🙂 I really love the subtler color I now have at my roots, and this is such a high-quality mix. It always leaves my hair feeling conditioned, and not as dry as henna alone. It also smells delightful!

    I’ve henna-ed my hair for literally decades and this is by far the BEST henna ever. I’ve used pretty much every brand, from straight henna to blends. This one (Genasi) gives me the terra cotta/coppery color I had as a kid, it is always beautiful, and I get tons of compliments. At this point I only do the outgrowth and can get two treatments from each packet.

    I’ve been using Fire Genasi for awhile and this time decided to add Amla to it, using the Night Blooming directions. I love the slightly toned down color I got. The consistency and quality of the product is amazing, as always.

    I’ve been using this henna for over three years now and it never disappoints! I read Melissa’s ebook (which I highly recommend) before taking the plunge, and I’d never go back to commercial color now. It took a few tries before nailing the right shade down, but Melissa was always extremely helpful when it came to trouble shooting.
    Pictured here is a 50/50 blend of the Fire Genasi and the Kitsune Firefox. I usually make a tisane using the Sunlit Meadow herbal tea and use that for my added liquid, but I have used water and a little apple cider vinegar with success, too. I leave it on for three hours, along with my eyebrows (I tried many different methods for keeping my brows covered and moist, from using cling wrap to squares of ziploc bag taped down, and finally decided to use packing tape. Works like a charm, haha, and I’ve had no allergic reactions.)
    For reference, my natural color is a light sandy blonde (as shown in the first picture) and my complexion is fair with both pink and yellow undertones. I tried to get a few pics in different lighting to show some color variation, I hope it helps!

    Melissa has answered countless questions in the time I’ve been shopping from Nightblooming, her heart is in everything she does and it shows in every correspondence. I will buy this magical mud for life! Haha

    This is the first henna I’ve ever used and I’m hooked! The sun makes my naturally red hair turn blonde and this brings the red back.

    Plenty of product for a proper strand test and the scent was so much better than synthetic hair dye! The color on my dark brown hair was beautifully subtle and brightened up my natural copper undertones in the sunlight.

    My very first time I coloured my hair was with Fire Gensai henna….and I’m spoiled, no other will do now!
    The application is such fun! Slap on mud, chill for awhile, wash and presto: new self! XD
    My hair LOVES henna, it gets so soft and it solved my split end problems for good. No split ends since I hennaed that first time.
    The extremely cool thing that no salon or box colour can ever do? Henna works WITH your present colour, so you get this special, personal colour no one else can replicate. It looks natural — because it is! — and gives lifelong dividends you’ll fall in love with.
    Thank you so much for making this product, Melissa!! I’ll cry if you stop making it

    I have always dreamed to change my medium brown hair to a beautiful copper color, but could never achieve the color I wanted with a henna-only mix. I found Nightblooming from reading henna forums and decided to jump back on the henna ship after 5 years without. The color I got from this mix is breathtaking! I got a beautiful deep copper red from dye releasing in the crockpot for 3 hours with the Selkie Detangler and leaving it on for three hours. I am sold and will only use this henna from now on!!

    Since my hair was light brown with hints of red, I wanted to use a non-toxic dye to inhance the red in my hair (more ginger-like). Now my hair is a dark copper (unless I’m in the sun, then it’s a lighter copper like how Melissa explained). Thank you so much!

    I originally just got the sample of this and kitsune because I’ve never used henna before and wanted to try it out. Fire genasi is a really pretty natural coppery color. I love it! It’s exactly what I was looking for I’ll definitely be ordering a full package for the rest of my hair!

    I like the color. Love that it’s not toxic. Love the smell. Love the company is all about eco friendly products. A bit messy to me( still learning not to make a mess 🫣) does take time to prepared, apply and rinse. I recommend to do it when you can give several hrs and not in a rush. Overall, my to go hair products.

    This product is great for natural red heads whose shine has dulled over time!
    But more than that, Melissa is the most kindest, sweetest, patient seller there is! I got nervous I was doing the procedure wrong and worked up the courage to message Melissa. She was so kind and responded right away, affirming ne and my doubts! She is definitely the best! The product smells like strong matcha which I love, so I’ll definitely be back.
    Highly recommend!!!!!

    As always, incredibly happy with this product <3 I've been wanting to re-dye my hair for the fall, but being pregnant I was nervous- but then I remembered... doy! Henna! I'm so grateful your product is 100% natural. I tried the crockpot method this time and I might've overcooked the henna a touch (oopsies on my part obvi), but I'm still super happy with the result. Next time I'll use the windowsill method again. Thank you so much for your incredible service. MWAH!

    Melissa makes stunning products. I have been using them now for three years and have truly loved feeling *me* with her henna creations. I have darker hair and choose to lighten my natural color with traditional dye once (as my roots grow in every few months) and I then follow up with fire genasi mixed with rusalki (I vary the amounts based on the season and lightness I want!). My hair is very healthy and the color is brilliant.

    Been using this for years to amp the auburn in my hair, the color pay of is phenomenal. Genuinely the best henna product I have used on my hair, I have classic length hair and use this several times a year. I am a repeat customer and will continue to be far as long as this shop is open.

    I’m forever grateful for this product- I only wish I’d discovered it earlier in my life. It gives me the color of hair that I’d always wished for, and I love it so. It smells great, and is consistently of excellent quality. If what you want is coppery ginger hair- this is what you need. I cannot recommend highly enough.

    This henna is amazing!! I’m a ginger whose hair has faded to a sandy strawberry blonde as I’ve gotten older. I didn’t want to use a chemical dye because the ones I had tried when I was younger faded so quickly. This was my first try with henna and I am over the moon. The minute I washed it out I smiled and over time it has dulled down to a gorgeous red with only slightly more intensity than I had when I was younger. I cannot thank you enough, it’s just perfect!

    Perfect match for my naturally red hair. It brightens up my copper hair. I have tried a lot of henna. This one is my favorite. It smells great and doesn’t dry out my hair.

    It was my first time dying my hair and it turned out fantastic. I got the 500g bag and ended up using about 3/4 for my classic ii/2b hair, application took an hour, left it on for 2 1/2 more hours. I have a very uneven hair color and I wanted to keep it that way, just make my auburn pop more. It looks amazing, very natural. (pictures are after oxidation, last picture was before Fire Genasi)

    Beautiful henna. I bought several shades to try on my graying red hair. I tried them from darkest to lightest, and I ended up mixing Kitsune with Rusalki for a nice fiery red.

    This is an amazing product! High & consistent quality and lovely customer experience. As a 50+ natural red-head, I have been using Nightbloomings herbal hair dye for a few years now to cover my white and absolutely love the unique & natural looking golden-red color. It has been great for my hair too, leaves it strong and glossy! Strangers regularly stop me on the street to compliment the color & texture of my locks. 100% recommend this henna mix!

    Wonderful color and very thorough instructions for a first-time hair coloring, it worked like magic! My natural hair was exactly the shade of the third example in the picture (very, very light brown). My hair was pretty “orange” right after, but the color deepened and mellowed out within a week to a very flattering red that was still surprisingly light. There are probably ways to inhibit the oxidation process if you’re going for that brighter orange color, but I LOVE the tone I got by just following the instructions and leaving it alone! I have plenty left over, but I’ll definitely be buying another bag to stock up and keep my roots looking nice and ginger. To give an idea of the “mellowing out,” I took 2 pics in similar lighting. The first one is the day after, and the second is 3 ish weeks after. Only a subtle change, but it looks much nicer now! Give the fire genasi henna a go, and just trust the process! (Ps, my brows turned out great too once the stain on my skin disappeared over a few days).
