In reply to: Well this is what I do to check for dye release. posted by Faery Ring on August 16, 2002 at 20:54:12:

: It involves mixing the henna paste in a cheap plastic Ziploc bag
: placing it on top of a white paper towel or white facial tissue (in
: an airtight jar of course). After 12 to 24 hours I lift up the bag
: of henna and check the color of the facial tissue. If I get an
: orange stain on the facial tissue then the dye release has taken
: place. If I get no orange stain then this is a pretty good
: that the henna is useless or hasn’t sat long enough. A couple of
: variables to consider would be how thick the plastic is and how
: the paste is. If the plastic bag is very thick not much henna dye
: will seep through. Same thing if the henna paste is very thick
: clay. This idea came about as I was not sure how to determine when
: the henna paste was ‘ready’ so to speak.
