    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

    My friend was wanting to dye her hair darker and redder but dye damages her hair and makes it very unmanageable so we decided to try henna. I ordered 2 100g of Kitsune to try and it worked great! The dye release was beautiful and it washed out very smooth. Her hair is very thick and still around a level 4 – 5 with some greys throughout. Kitsune brought her hair back to that warm dark burgundy I remember her having in our early twenties. She wants it a bit darker so in a month or two we will do another full head application with the second 100g packet maybe with some alma added. I also tried some of the leftover Kitsune on a clump of my shed hairs just for fun. Such a vibrant color!

    The product itself is packaged beautifully and thoughtfully as is everything Nightblooming creates. The new website is great!
