Store Henna for Future Use

Written by , Posted in Guest Posts, Hair Regimen, Tutorials

This is a guest post by Kass; a naturalista who is also a chemistry genius.

To store henna it needs to be frozen and I will show you how I do this.

I use a small container in which I put foil and clear wrap.  Or if you will not miss the container you can leave it in the container.

This time I used one piece of foil and this went in one direction the clear warp makes a cross one piece in the same direction as the foil the other perpendicular. Push these into the container.

Scoop the remaining henna into the center of the clear wrap. Then cover up the clear wrap

Then wrap the foil over this.

I leave the henna in the container and place in the freezer. After a week I can remove the container and the henna will be in a regular shape.

To thaw remove this from the freezer and thaw slowly at room temperature for about a day. If you need it in a hurry you can also thaw it in hot water until it regains its mushy consistency.

How do you store your henna for future use? Would you rather make a fresh batch each time you use it?
