amla v cassia


I am familiar with the effects of Henna but I fancy a change and was wondering about cassia and amla  What should I and should not expect from using them separately?  E.g., will they thicken, loosen the curl add shine etc.,

Cassia produces a weak yellow dye which only shows up on white to super pale blond hair and has effects similar to henna. They only last about 3 weeks. Its been labeled as neutral henna in the past. I'm not sure if cassia thickens the hair as much as henna (though henna only seems to do this on very fine hair), and most find it doesnt add near as much shine. I dont think it loosens curl, but it might.
