Desert Shadow Organic Hair Dye - Deep Chestnut Shadow
I have naturally dark brown hair, with less than 5% grey and the remnants of some old foils in the ends of my hair.
I used the non-grey preparation method.
Having never used a henna product before, I didn't know what to expect. I thought it would even out my natural colour and make my hair shiny.
It certainly did that, with some caveats. The colour is VERY dark, almost black on my hair. It did cover my old foils but not grey hairs, which now stand out like beacons of silver in my very dark hair.
The colour is quite flat, and I now want to put a red over the top to give it a lift.
It took about a week for my hair to appear shiny (3 washes) and it felt a bit dry for a few days after.
The preparation and application process was easy enough and the smell is not terrible, like a green smoothie powder.
Overall a good product, mildly disappointed in the colour and will use the "grey method" next time.

Perfection! Covers Grey!
I always keep this in my home. The colour is luxurious, the scent is quite pleasant, and my hair is in beautiful condition. I have about 25% grey, and this covers it well. So much healthier than chemical-ridden brands. It also encourages you to have a full spa day to yourself!

There is lots to love about this product, but the best bit clearly is the colour. Rich, deep, multi-toned and shiny, this is the best look I got from a home colour kit ever. The grey coverage is good, the dye does not stain the skin and it's not runny, so it's not dripping all over the place. It is very important to me that, besides being a natural product, it's not tested on animals. Unlike mainstream brands this does not sting my scalp or give me inflamed patches. The herbal smell doesn't bothyme and while it seems a bit strange at first I think anything is better than that ammonia stench. It's definitely a good idea to prepare step one before you actually want to use it and freeze it. As for the application time, 4 hours is a long time and I think that is why it will never appeal to everyone. I find it quite easy to apply it in the early evening and watch tv etc. I'll keep using it for sure and I would encourage anyone to give it a chance.
