There is one possibility for that. If the henna is so old and stale that it won't dye anymore, it might still give shine. Also, I have read(don't remember where) that henna can be treated with heat somehow so that it won't dye.

According to the places that sell body art quality there is no such thing as "neutral" or "clear" henna. If it is henna, it stains red. Period. What most people call "neutral henna" in generally cassia obovata. Cassia is a different plant than Henna. I use Cassia frequently and it is fabulous. It has no stain whatso ever to it, and will ad condition and shine to any hair. I get mine from www.mehandi.com Catherine is reputable and always ships promptly. She carries high quality product.
