Henna storage question

soonermomsoonermom Posts: 73Registered Users
I made up some henna today to test on my tester hair, but I am not going to get to use it on my head for a few days. Do I put it in the freezer till I can use it? I know you can store it in the freezer for long periods of time, but I didn't know if there was a better method for shorter store time.

    I've kept henna in the 'fridge for about a week or so and it was fine to use. Freezing it might give you a better stain because it helps it to breakdown even further.

    I've seen just a couple of comments about Suave conditioner causing henna to fade. I think I've seen more comments though about Suave shampoos fading out color because of sulfates. I've also seen people on the hennaforhair board recommend Suave conditioners for rinsing out after henna application. There was a recent thread about conditioners - some henna-heads really like Trader Joe's Nourish condish....Good luck!
