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

Honey shadow.

I was just hoping to cover the greys and eventually go lighter as my old colour grows out. It has coloured the greys a lovely light brown/golden blond. I hope the colour doesn't fade too quickly. I used another brand last time and it faded within a few washes. It has given my hair a beautiful shine and highlighted the lighter brown in my hair. So far, so good!!

Honey Shadow hair colour

This is a beautiful colour that looks very natural on light coloured hair. It blends well into my original colour when growing out. I only need to apply once every 4-5 weeks to cover roots. It’s my favourite colour in this range. It does take a few hours to do, but I find it much gentler than the commercial ‘natural’ hair colourants. When I used those, my hair used to fall out a lot. But Honey Shadow has no chemicals so my hair is very healthy now,

Comprehensive instructions, good amount of product for mid-length hair, Very nice result. and I enjoyed the QR code scanner instructional links. My local Go Vita has recently picked up the Desert Shadow 6jair dye range, but they do not have the colour I need in stock. I ordered the product online instead, Online buying was easy, delivery was quick, service friendly and warm, a personal message inside the box was very lovely. Postage did increase the cost though, which is the only downer. I'm very happy with the product and will buy again.

Honey Shadow

Returning to henna after 2 years of chemical colours ruined my hair & scalp. This is a gentle product & colour for mid-brown hair. The extra time is well worth it. It's SO soothing - it has begun to heal my head, no more flaking! And this colour is not too bright on my poor, fried hair. I have learned my lesson.

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.

Honey Shadow

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!

Honey Shadow

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.

Weight: 0.16 KGS
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?: HOney Shadow Step 1 can be frozen but the Step 2 needs to be used once activated. Please see our blog about root touch ups for tips on how to get more that one treatment from your pack.
