Love this hair colour. It’s a really nice colour and leaves my hair soft and conditioned.

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.

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.
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.
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.
I have been using this product for years. It covers my grey hair perfectly. I'm very happy about the bright and refined colour.
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!
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.
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.
Great product. Rich colour that conditions my hair. My hair has never looked this good. Truely and no irritation that I was getting with chemical colour.
I love this product - great colour and feels good on my hair, thank you.
