Dye Release Problem

I've been using Henna for 3 years on my hair.  This batch I ordered, is not dye releasing.  I mixed it with lemon juice and water let it sit for 8 hours.  Little to no dye release.  So I put it in the fridge for the night and next day.  Still very little release.  So, I put it back in the fridge for another 18 hours still little to no dye release.  I've bagged it for freezing but don't want to waste the time doing my hair if it is demised.  Any suggestions?  I'm going to put it in the freezer tonight.


Please Help,  I need to do my hair soon.....

Henna needs to sit out of the

Henna needs to sit out of the fridge for 8-12 hours. The fridge slows down the dye release.

It also depends on the temperature. If it is cooler, it will take a little longer.  If you are getting a stain on your finger after a minute, it's good!
