After you let it defreeze? I just let mine defrost naturally, but then what are you suposed to do afterwards?

What do you mean? Are you planning on using it or you want to freeze it again?

Slop it into your hair. :D
Or, re freeze it.
Just don't leave it sitting out too long. You don't want the dye to demise.

I love using cold thawed henna during the summer. It feels so good against my scalp. I even like it at winter time too. :)

Yea I just slap it on once it is defrosted.
Are you trying to find a way to warm it up? Applying cold henna in winter (even in a warm house) isn't the most pleasant experience in my opinion. I usually store my henna in a ziplock bag (then put inside another ziplock to make sure it doesn't leak) so when I want to defrost it I just put the baggy in warm water. It wont be super warm but its better then nothing.

I just wanted to know if there is something special you got to do with it, everybody always uses the word: 'thaw', not sure what that is!
I also got some henna in my fridge already for some weeks, would that still be useful?

The easiest way to thaw henna is to just leave it sitting out on the counter. Or, if you want it faster, you can float the container in a bowl of hot water, changing it now and then. You can use the henna cold, temperature doesn't matter, henna stains like crazy warm or cold. :)
I don't know about the henna that has been in your fridge for so long. Easiest way to see is to take it out, give it a stir and plop a little on your palm or the inside of your wrist. Let is sit a minute or two then rinse. If you have an orange spot, the henna still has dye and should colour your hair. If not, I imagine that it sould still condition and add some shine. As long as it hasn't gone bad, you don't have to throw it out. :D

That fridge henna already barely gave off any color last time, I think I'm going to add some fresh henna to it for a henna gloss :)
