Hello All!

Let me first say that I have been a horrible lurker and am starting
to improve my posting habits! I have always enjoyed reading
this list.

Okay, so I am notorious at making too much henna at a time. I
end up keeping the extra henna in the fridge like a week and
then I fear it is too old and finally throw it away. What a waste!
I've heard people mention mixing new henna into the old batch,
but that sounds like I'm just using/making more henna.

How long in the fridge can henna be used (even if not that dark)?
Anyone ever experiment. I know that with paying customers and
such you would always want optimal conditions, but for just
practice that looks half decent how old can it be?

Also, I tend to notice it seems to thin out a little after time???
Could I just add little more powder to the mix without making
another batch and then cutting and mixing the two?

I know overall the answer is use less to begin with. :) Thanks!
