I absolutely LOVE Desert Shadow. I have been using these colours for 3 years now & just started using the shampoo & conditioner. I always purchased the colours from Nourished Life but after visiting the Desert Shadow website I discovered a whole new range of products that are not available at NL. Plus Desert Shadow has a reward system too & Charmaine is extremely helpful & responds to questions very quickly. Can't recommend enough, My family are getting on the Desert Shadow train!! Love it
This product is amazing. After being allergic to hair dye and not knowing what to do I tried the Walnut shadow. It covered my greys completely and my hair feels so healthy. No irritations what so ever! Thanks Desert Shadow!
