Anyone use Black or Red Henna from Golchin (brand name)

I went to my local iranian (mediterranean) grocery store and found henna from Golchin. They have two different kids Black and Red.

I'm wondering if anyone is familiar with this brand? The package does not say anything else, so I can't tell if the "black Henna" is a mix of Henna and Indigo. Or is henna with PPDs.

Any thoughts?

    If I were you, I would go to and really read up on it and get some form there or the Then test to see what color you like.

    ITA. Unless you know for certain that it's plain, unadulterated henna, I'd be afraid of it. There is no such thing as black henna, clear henna, etc. - there's just henna. Black henna would have to have at least indigo in it, if not PPD or other things.

    I checked out the site (I think that's what it was) and it looks like they're some kind of spice distributor. They had pics of both hennas and, I mean, they *look* right -- the black henna looks like green powder, close to what a blend of indigo/henna would look like. The red henna is a somewhat odd golden color.

    That said, instead of ordering and crossing your fingers, I'd recommend just doing what poster above mentioned and get it from somewhere known. I've only ordered from hennaforhair, but I checked out hennasooq and it looks like they're considerably cheaper. Obviously, I can't compare quality, but just a heads-up. :)
