Surya Brasil Henna Cream Hair Coloring Red -- 2.31 fl oz
It's exactly what I was looking for!
This henna cream hair color is just as easy to use as the chemical kind, but doesn't have any of the chemicals. I have hair to my shoulders and didn't think the little bottle would cover all of my hair, but I was wrong. I even had some left over. After applying the cream, I wrapped my head in plastic wrap (rather than use the plastic bag provided). I left it on for an hour, rinsed it out, and LOVED the result! I used Red, and I got brilliant, dark red hair. It's vibrant and shiny and I love it! I will be purchasing it to keep on hand for the next time.

It's the perfect hair coloring product
I also use the powder from Light Mountain brand for economical reasons, but I truly prefer this one. When I wash it off, my scalp and skin around the hairline is a little 'redish' but I just don't pull my hair back that day. The next day it fades, and after the next wash (next 1 or 2 days) my scalp is completely white, it doesn't stain remotely as bad as peroxide/ammonia coloring, and if you need to make a skin stain disappear faster just rub it with any oil and a piece of cotton and voila.
The color is stunning! it doesn't turn brassy like the peroxide/ammonia coloring, neither does fade.
My base is white in the front of my head due to gray hair, and still brunette on the back, I notice a little difference in color, the front is obviously brighter, and I fix that once in a while by doing some highlights on the back, that way it blends more naturally. I totally recommend this Surya Brasil Henna so much that I even requested Vitacost to please bring it back in stock. Thank you Vitacost for doing so, now I can order my favorite products all together.

Dyed my scalp red.
I was looking for something to color gray roots and replace the off the shelf product I normally use in a similar color. Even though I already use gentle, no peroxide/ammonia level two color (semi permanent), I wanted to find something without the parabens and PPD, etc., as well.
I'm glad I did a patch test as the product box suggests when you've already got dyed hair - to determine whether you might get an "undesirable" color. But it ended up that the color wasn't really the issue at all.
I left the product on for 30 min. and rinsed. The color would've likely blended very well with the rest of my dyed hair shaft - -but I could clearly see my scalp was also red, not just the hair. I've never had that problem with commercial products.
Funny, the box says it works on gray hair. MY gray hair is at the roots (like most gray hair!...we're dealing with touch ups and grow-out, here.) Obviously, the henna must at some point come in contact with scalp, no getting around that one.
Cannot recommend, unfortunately.

Rich vibrant color, great high lights and shine
I will definitely use this product again. This was my first time using Surya. I usually use the powder henna. I plan to use the Surya in between henna's treatment when I do not have the time for mixing the powders. What is great about his product is that it does not require any mixing, it is ready to use and clean up is easy with out the mess of powders. The bottle applicator made application easy. I have had the product in my hair for about five weeks now and the color is still rich. It covers gray hair very well. I've gotten a lot of compliments on the color and people are surprise when I tell them I did it my self. And of course I referred them to Vitacost.com.
