Really Old Henna?

Hello!

I have a really old (dye-released) batch of henna in my fridge that never made it to the freezer. It must be a few months old by now, at least - I know, I know, I'm terrible! I just haven't been able to bring myself to throwing it away. Do you think it is still good for hair use as a protein treatment?

I am not looking for additional color, just something to give my hair a healthy boost. If you steer me away from my old henna, I will use a cassia treatment.

Thanks,

The benefits of henna come from the dye and while henna ACTS similar to a protein treatment, it isn't one. Unfortunately, that henna is well beyond any sort of use besides maybe practicing body art designs.

I'd pitch it. Even to practice body art this is probably no good. Paste tends to get sort of tar-like and uncooperative at this stage of demise and won't be very helpful in training you for the real thing.
