I found I was losing hair after many years of using chemical dyes. I had tried another henna product which had not covered my greys at all. I was very unhappy with how my hair looked and was nervous about trying salon treatments again. So grateful that I have found desert shadow. Beautiful non brassy colour and it covered my greys very well. Thank you Desert Shadow - I really thankful to you - I can be confident about my hair again.

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 : 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 auriculata, Indigofera tinctoria, Lawsonia inermis, embilica oficialis, 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

Thankyou for developing this Hair colour it's so nice to use a non Chemical Hair Colour wasn't difficult to use the the Colour Honey Shadow was so So beautiful .I've had many Comments on the Colour and how Healthy my Hair looks .Highly Recommend this Product and will be reordering it again
I (and my hair) absolutely LOVE this product! I experimented with a few henna colouring brands when I switched to henna several years ago, however I've found the 'Desert Shadow' range to producing the best and easiest to maintain colours. The colour is perfect (and when you follow the instructions carefully, covers greys!) and the ingredients are of the highest quality, evident in how nourished my hair feels afterwards. Thanks!
This colour is a beautiful soft golden blonde with deeper undertones - I love it !
First time user of organic hair dye and I’m so happy with the end result. The colour was exactly what I wanted, greys are covered and my hair looks and feels nourished. The preparation and application process was easy with some careful planning. Will definitely be buying this product again and have recommended it to my friends.
