    This color is so amazing! It is close to my hair color but after I use it, it makes my hair and its color come to life again! I get so many compliments and I don’t feel like I am damaging it with a million chemicals!

    I have natural red hair but its kind of brassy, I have used other henna before but the colors I just wasnt really liking to much and with the whole process I was almost just gonna stop bothering with henna. I wanted to try this kind before giving up, and im glad I did because this kind just makes your hair so much brighter than other kinds ive tried. I will continue to purchase this over any other kind!

    Have been using this for several years mixed with indigo. I will not use anything else to color my hair.

    I use this to add more strawberry to my strawberry blonde and I love it! This henna blend also really helps my hair feel nourished/conditioned after everything is fully rinsed out. I am so grateful I found this product and Nightblooming in general.

    This is the second time buying this. I have light brown hair which gets lighter in the summer and this enhances my highlights. Love it!

    Spectacular blend and magnificent results. I used Rusalki on previously lightened hair; I’m going back to a routine of mainly natural hair care and Rusalki was my first step to getting a shade closer to my natural color without going too dark or too red.

    I left the paste on for approximately four hours. The photo was taken indoors with natural lighting four days post-treatment so you can see how Rusalki oxidizes on light hair.

    As with any treatment which includes henna, there is a 48-72 hour phase of brighter color which simmers down to a natural strawberry blonde between days 3 and 4.

    I will be purchasing Rusalki again!

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

    Background: I’ve been on and off the henna train for the last 20+ years. When I ordered this I was on the tail end of about a year of commercial dyes and heavy bleaching. Waist length hair was pretty trashed, and a mix of almost platinum and super pale blonde (when toned – when the toner faded out, more brassy gold tones from old henna crept back).
    So, time to try a new experiment, of which this and the fire genasi were part of. Also oddly – the experiment was to eventually get to a neutral/cool toned light/medium brown that wouldn’t rinse out the way chemical dyes/toners kept doing (so it would better blend in with my root grow out which is a medium neutral brown w/ progressively more white hairs sneaking in).
    Over a couple of months I slowly built back more warmth in my hair. I started with Rusalki – one short session about 45 minutes long. And then did a mix of that and genasi for about an hour. That brought me from the bleached photo to the strawberry copper.
    The mix was easy to apply – very smooth blend, and left my hair in better conditioner than before (not hard, the bar was pretty low lol).
    For the continuation of the color experiments, hop on over to my review of the ebook Night Blooming offers on hair recovery. That book helped me solidify the goal to get off the hair dye bandwagon. Which still required *some* hair coloring to do. Because reasons lol.

    I love this henna color this is the second time I have bought it. I was nervous at first but it turned out such a pretty strawberry blonde.
