Hard to moisten henna powder?

I am having such a weird experience with this prima-donna powder! It
won't strain- if I force it, I get chocolate milk in the bowl and
thatch in the nylon. So I sifted it- and now it doesn't seem to want
to moisten. Any other henna would be smooth by the time I stir it
this much, but oh, no, not this one. It's lumpy, like... I don't
know what else it's like. Cottage cheese? If I sit it overnight the
paste absorbs the moisture and it smooths out considerably, but since
the dye release is about an hour in this heat, I'd like to mix and
go. It's very stringy and the color is out of this world, as you saw
in my picture post below, but I'm not sure if I trust something that
behaves so differently than what I'm used to. Thoughts?
