Let me put on my frigidaire cheerleader suit one more time...
Gimme an F, gimme an R, Gimme an E and another E, gimme a Z, gimme an
E....Freeze! Freeze! Freeze! Rah rah

Sorry, in a goofy mood.

Ok, I don't know what to do if there's not the frozen batch. Keep
the fresh batch somewhere really warm so that the dye releases faster?

I know I have said it before, but I'll say it again for total
redundancy...when I mix up a batch of paste, I mix a huge batch, then
1/2 goes in the freezer after it's strained. And I used the other
1/2. This way when I need it, it's there. When I pull the frozen, I
make sure to make another batch pretty soon {sometimes even before I
pull the frozen}.
I was so excited to get my last order of powder, I mixed up 200g of
powder. I won't have to make any paste for a

Good luck,
Justine Willowhawk

: Hey everyone,
: I know I should have a way of dealing with this by now, but was
: wondering how others handle last-minute requests for henna. If I
: have some mixed up, that's fine (I just got a request for tomorrow,
: but I have some a-brewing at home) but what do you do when you
: have any henna ready?
: How to gently educate people that they need to give you at least
: days' notice?!? Anyone else have a system? If they can't wait at
: least two days, I've tended to tell them I simply can't have henna
: ready...
