Keep henna/indigo gloss?
Just wondering how long you can keep an already made up gloss? (1tbsp each of indigo & henna powders, salt & conditioner)

Re: Keep henna/indigo gloss?

Indigo is at its strongest for about 3 or so hours (or so I last recall), and then after that the dye begins to break down and weaken until its basically dead (demised). Henna's shelf life, at room temp, depends on what you mixed it with, with a stronger acid keeping it alive longer. It will last a lot longer when kept cold, but the problem is, is that cold kills indigo so you cant stick a hennigo in the fridge or freezer.
