Re: Dye release times on various brands of henna

My favorite, Al Arooza (which I now suspect is "Mr. Green") usually
takes 6 or 8 hours for release. Unlike most though, I add everything
at once...terps and all! I've done it both ways and haven't been able
to see any difference between waiting to terp and terping right then
so I do it all at once. Recently I bought some mystery henna at the
Indian store...(I know!! but I just can't resist an unfamiliar
brand!) and after mixing, it released dye after only about an hour.
there was a great layer of dye on top and I was excited! Alas...NO
STAIN! Now that was weird after seeing the release with my own 2
eyes! this raises an interesting question though. I think I'm now
going to mix 2 bowls...one with terps like I usually do and one
without. I wonder if THAT affects the time?
