Mix it ahead of time and freeze it for a week+. Results should be more intense.
Yeah, my last 2 batches were frozen. It really seems to help. I think I need to leave my henna on longer too. I can never find 6 spare hours to leave it on my hair but that seems to work best.
I do it overnight, wash it out the next morning/day then deep condition for at least the rest of that day. However, I never bother to let the dye release for more than 30mins (the time it takes the hot hibiscus tea to cool down). I let it release on my head. I'm too disorganised!
My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

Love: QB - all of it, Bobeam - shampoo bars, Darcy's Botanicals - Pumpkin Seed Conditioner, Coconut Cupuacu Pomade, KBN - Shealoe Leave-in, Oyin - Juices & Berries, Kinky Curly - Knot Today, Ayurvedic treatments, my Denman and the cloud of kinky goodness on my head that I get to play with!
