: By the way, Kenzi, I finally got the hang of your Moroccan henna
: *spectacular* results!!! I didn't know that it released its dye so
: quickly until Kree told me that's a characteristic of Moroccan. I
: had been using it past its prime. I was getting decent results,
: nothing compared to this. I mixed it with lemon juice and
: immediately added some tea tree & lavender; I used it about 5
: later and the color is fabulous. LOVE your stuff!!! Thanks! (by
: the way, do you know how long it'll last in the fridge? I mixed it
: up on Saturday and tested it yesterday and still got a good
: stain. Just wondering.)

Hmmmm, very curious! Everyone seems to have their own tricks
for the timing of terps. I mix, let sit for 24 hours, terp, let sit for
another 24-48 hours and then use. I can usually use it for 2-5
days (maybe 7) after the initial mixing. Nick, on the other hand,
mixes (using Kenzi henna), lets sit for 8 hours, terps and then
uses shortly thereafter up to 24 hours...after 24 hours the paste
is past its prime. I guess it all depends on your particular
situation and you have to experiment to find the right timing. The
same goes for the life of the paste...mix up a batch and test it
each day afterwards to see how quickly it dies. You can also mix
up paste every day, terp etc. and then test all these pastes at
once, like we did at Sirius (look at the henna journal, terp tests).

Glad to hear that things are working well!
