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

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.

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