After many many many months of testing she's ready! Sojat Supreme is my very own henna powder, milled just how I like it, stringy, and stains super dark. This stuff is super smooth and drapes like a dream.
Over the years I've sampled henna powders from all over SE Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. Each henna from each region has a unique consistency. When I was dreaming about the perfect henna powder I needed the stringy texture of Morocco, the stability of the Punjab Region, and the rich stains of the Middle East. My dream came true in the form of Sojat Supreme, a henna powder from Sojat Rajasthan India.
In addition to my testing I sent this amazing powder out to several other artists to try. Below are their results.
So here are the specs...

Finally a tutorial by yours truly! There are several variations of this design floating around the webs, but I took a my copy from @hudabeauty on instagram. I'd like to give credit to @hennabydivya who I was told is the original designer of this pattern, it was lots of fun to apply and has been insanely popular with my customers. I've altered this design slightly a few times on some of my clients, it has a very "gulfy" look and feel to it.
