Organic Roots have two grades of Cassia Obovata . One is called Lustrous and the other is called Nude & Glossy.
You can get hair masking benefits with both cassias. But for coloring purposes, we recommend Nude & Glossy because it contains chrysophanic acid in more concentrated form so it is better in wheat golden dye content so we recommend using this in our kits. If you want to apply as hair conditioning purpose then lustrous is a od choice too. Cassia Obovata give fabulous effects if applied alone too but adding more herbs can make it more beneficial. Organic Roots Secret Hair pack is also available on store with all beneficial high-quality additional 9 herbs added in cassia obovata. You do not need to add any herb to make cassia obovata richer paste if you buy Her Secret Hair Pack.
