I got a sample of this when I ordered Curl Keeper. It's very dark brown. Is it spoiled or is that the normal color?

2/c-3a Coarse hair med. density.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
I love all the Curl Junkie products and use CJ CCCL as my main styler. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
Every day is a gift
