Dont know why that didnt work before.

: Hey all just to let you know I have more Jamila again!!
: I will sell it for $8 per box. to forum folks.
: Blessings,
: Theadora
: : Thanks to the lovely and talented Willowhawk, I now have some
: : fresh Jamila (and Castle arts, which I'm saving).
: : After Kenzi and I tried some we bought in a shop in her
: neighborhood
: : which was grainy and stale, and after the talk about freezing
: henna, I
: : decided to mix up the "new" Jamila as well as some "old" stuff
: : back when Jamila was all the rage- two or three years ago? I
: forget.
: : It's been sitting boxed in my fridge and despite all the moving
: I've
: : done (my apt in Seattle-my ex's place in Seattle-Manhattan-
: Brooklyn) I
: : have tried to keep it cool.
: : Last night I mixed up a bunch of Willowhawk's Jamila. It had
: : consistency I still remember from years ago: silky smooth, like
: : cornstarch or talcum powder, and smelled divine.
: : I decided to open the old box, and the color was not much
: : from the new stuff - nothing special, kinda khaki, but still
: to
: : the touch.
: : This afternoon, in weather that seems like it hasn't gone below
: and
: : is killer humid (really, people are not meant to live in such a
: : climate!) I checked out both batches. They both had a blackish
: : coating on the top - dye had released.
: : In a few minutes I'll add some tea tree, but I mixed in a bit
: : lemonjuice to bring them to consistency, and dabbed a bit on my
: hand.
: : The fresh stuff gave an amazing brilliant orange in less than two
: : minutes. A five minute test of both it and the two-year-old,
: : refrigerated Jamila do show a difference, but the old Jamila
: : shows a respectably bright orange - duller, but there.
: : Now that whatever problems I've had seem to be abating I am
: to
: : do some side-by-side tests of different hennaes before the big
: event
: : of my sister's wedding in a couple of weeks.
: : But I thought I'd share my findings on refigerated Jamila - I bet
: : freezing would have kept it even fresher.
: :
: : peace

: : Anne
