Me Time required

Organic hair colours need time to deposit colour on your hair. Please allow the following amount of time for your colour treatment.

Non Grey coverage : 1 hr

Grey coverage : 1.5 to 3 hrs

Amount of product required

Short hair & root touch ups - 1/2 pack

Medium hair - 1 pack

Long hair - 1 to 1.5 packs

Super long hair - 2 to 3 packs

Thick hair - will need to add an extra 1/4 pack for short hair and 1/2 (short to medium) to 3/4 pack (for long hair)

*Please note - repeated use will see your colour become richer and in some cases darker. Once you achieve the colour shade you like on the lengths, simply apply to the roots only and do a full application every 4th or 5th time to boost the colour at the ends. This will save time and product and ensure you have an even colour all over.


Cassia obovata , Lawsonia inermis, Aloe barbadensis.



*We recommend a strand test to determine desired processing time and final colour result. Colour resistant hair will require the longer period for processing time. Not recommended for people who wish to bleach or lighten their hair blonde in the future.

Strand test instructions can be found here

Desert Shadow hair dye

I love this stuff!

Written by Sandra on 30th Dec 2022


I've been using this shade for a year now and couldn't be happier. My hair is super strong, long, shiny, and soft. I have dark brown hair, and the copper color is perfect for my goal. Indoor, my hair has a bit of reddish light, but out in the sun, it's like fire!!! Love it. I just bought five boxes, so I don't run out. Also, my hair is almost up to my waist, and I don't even need the whole package to cover it completely.

Copper henna

I absolutely LOVE this product! I have been using desert shadows' henna for a year now. It is a stunning natural copper colour. I only touch up my roots as needed and the colour has stayed vibrant. My hair has never been healthier! Highly recommended

I have been using this Henna for a year now and I absolutely love the colour. A perfect copper every time. I get so many compliments and people always ask if it's my natural colour. I had never coloured my hair before using this and it has stayed super healthy. I have used their guides and only touch up my roots as needed, I just redid my whole head for the first time since I started using the product and in all that time there was no fade or change of colour - It is very vibrant and permanent! Super happy with this Henna and will stick with Desert Shadow.

I have been using this colour for years now and when I’m out and about someone always comments on the colour saying they love it it’s bright and rich not brassy at all you’ll love it!

copper shadow

Beautiful vibrant colour. I used to use regular commercial hair dye but it was wrecking my hair. This is a much better option.

Weight: 0.16 KGS
First time users: Read & follow enclosed directions for mixing & application. More tips & info can be found on our blog
Optimum grey coverage: Wash hair before application, follow grey coverage mixing instructions in full, apply and leave in the hair for minimum 3 hours.
How long will the colour last?: Our colours give long lasting coverage and may fade but will not wash out completely.
Colour maintenance: Once you have achieved the colour you like on the ends you can apply future applications to your regrowth only. This will avoid colour build up, save time & money. Apply full application every 5th -6th time.
Unsure of which colour to choose?: We suggest you select a colour closest to your natural shade. If you are still unsure please contact us for assistance.
Washing your hair colour out: Rinse your hair with water and use conditioner only to release particles. You may wish to apply conditioner twice to remove the colour paste.
Mixed too much product?: Copper Shadow that has been activated can be frozen and used within 3 months.
Important note: If you intend to lighten or bleach your hair in the future we recommend you not to use our colours as they are long lasting. You can use our treatments to maintain hair health.
