Using frozen Celebration henna

Has anyone used Celebration henna that's been frozen? Does freezing intensify the dye release?

Another question: how about mixing leftover and frozen Celebration and Yemen, even Yemen that's got some Indigo (inert) in it? Any problems doing that?

Thanks. Insights into results much appreciated.

Re: Using frozen Celebration henna

Freezing after dye release has begun will increase dye release ... here is the FAQ about that:

No problem mixing Yemen and Celebration. The inert frozen indigo will not be an issue. If you want an indigo effect in your mix, you'd simply add some freshly mixed indigo to the thawed-out henna paste.

I had read the FAQ. Helpful, but not specific about percentages. Any idea by how much of an increase, if you can give a guess? Considering the high dye content of Celebration henna, could it be a large increase, i.e. really dark?

Thanks, Carrie.

I haven't tried Celebration but going by other Mehandi henna's I've tested by freezing paste, I'd say about 20-30%.
