Colour description

(2.15) Dark warm brown

The darkest brown in town, Deep Chestnut is just a couple of shades off black. It will give a darkest brown with subtle red highlights in the sun to most hair colours* This Colour is ideal for people with naturally brown hair.

* We recommend a Red Shadow or Copper Shadow base application for hair with more than 30% grey, light blonde & colour resistant hair to achieve optimum colour results.

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 : 2 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, Indigofera Tinctoria, 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

    Love it!

    Posted by Nadia on 25th Feb 2023

    I have dark brown hair (almost black), and this product gave good grey coverage, and the colour wasn't too dark. What I love the most is how soft my hair feels afterward. The only downside is that it is a long process, and it is a little smelly, but that's only a minor negative for me. Adding honey to the mix really helps in washing it out. This is definitely my go to brand for hair colour.

    Deep Chestnut Shadow

    Posted by Tegan on 29th Dec 2022

    This colour combination is just beautiful!! I mixed the step 1 and let it rest over night, and step 2 I mixed using chamomile tea. It is a beautiful, deep natural brown. I put it over Deep Red (coloured the day before to cover up and fill in previously bleached highlights) - the colour is so vibrant and my hair is in beautiful condition. I’ve had so many compliments on my hair and how healthy it is!! This will be my colour of choice for all my future colourings!! Never ever switching back to synthetic dye!! This makes you feel like an absolute goddess
