Colour description

(6.64) Deep Copper Red 

Intense Fiery Copper, Deep Red Shadow will give a deep fire red to grey, light blonde and dark blonde hair and will add a cherry burgundy tone to light brown and medium brown hair. When used on dark brown and black hair a red reflex effect can be seen in the shimmering sunlight. This colour is ideal for those who love daring colour and people with naturally red hair. This colour looks amazing with green or blue eyes. 

*this colour will not lighten the hair as it contains no bleach or peroxide. 

Colour & treatment in one

Our hair colour products also act as a treatment, helping to repair dry and damaged hair, leaving your hair soft and shiny.

This 100% Certified Organic formula is ideal for those who have scalp issues, sensitive skin and allergies to chemical hair dyes. It is also a wonderful and safe alternative for pregnant mums who would like to continue colouring during pregnancy* as they contain nothing but certified organic goodness.

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.


Lawsonia inermis, Cassia obovata, 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

Deep Red Shadow

Absolutely love everything about this henna product.. the colour is vibrant, people always comment on the colour of my hair. It's the only product I have used for many years. No harsh chemical smells, no toxic nasties. I also love supporting local business. It makes me smile when I see the hand written notes when a package arrives. Excellent personal customer service and outstanding product.. Ticks all the boxes. 10 outta 10.

Very impressed

Tried henna as chemical dyes seemed to be drying and causing hair breakage. I have used this henna twice now very impressed with the coverage and hair condition has improved

I'm allergic to any other henna products but Dessert Shadow Red henna is the only one works for me. I love this pure henna. Thanks a lot for making this product.

Deep Red Shadow Hair Colour

I have been using this for years and always get fantastic compliments. I am going grey and that means the highlights are getting more dramatic! The coverage is great and my hair has never been healthier.

Such warmth and richness

This is a lovely glowing red which my husband uses on his beard and hair. It has reasonable coverage of his stray white hair, and deep, glowing and vibrant red on his slightly gingery brown hair. He loves it, and it certainly seems to be good for his hair too! Thanks!

Deep Red Shadow/Deep Copper Red

I have used a variety of henna dyes over the last 30 years but my search for the perfect henna product stopped around 5 years ago, when I found Desert Shadow. I simply love the product. This henna creates a perfectly smooth paste and leaves your hair feeling wonderfully soft, not to mention vibrantly red. I love that it is organic, made here in Australia and the care and personal touch the creators so obviously have put into their products.

Deep red shadows

I’ve been using Henna for my hair since I was teenager, then stoped because I can’t find any good product until I tried desert shadow. It is above and beyond, the color is what I expected, my hair is smooth and strong, repaired my damaged hair Highly recommended and I’ll keep using it Thanks for getting my healthy hair back

I met Charmaine over 20 years ago at her market stall in Perth. Her passion for natural products (and beautiful hair!!) convinced me to try her products - I havent looked back. Gorgeous product that produces stunning results year after year.

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?: Deep Red 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.
