Walnut Shadow Hair Colour

I love this hair colour! I have a routine of doing the roots every 2 weeks, and I use half a packet for each time. It works well and gives a natural looking hair colour and softens my hair. I love using a product that is natural.

Walnut Shadow hair colour

I'm very sensitive to chemicals, so I'm very happy to have found a hair colour that does not give me red itchy skin and other sensitivities that conventional hair products do. I'm not ready to go grey yet, so walnut shadow hair colour is my friend! Thank you!!

Walnut Shadow hair colour

I have always tried to use chemical free body care products, organic if possible. I was very pleased to find Walnut Shadow and it has lived up to what I hoped. The colour really lasts and looks very natural. I have grey hair around the front, and it covers it well. I can get 3 or 4 applications from one box. Highly recommend.

Walnut shadow hair colour

I buy this for my aunt who lives in the states. She loves it as it is organic and it is the perfect way to dye her hair. She loves the colour and that her hair feels nice and soft and silky with no strong smells like all the other dyes. I have purchased 7 boxes already for her, so she is very happy!!

Walnut Shadow

Love this product because it looks natural on me and it does not affect my very sensitive skin. One box lasts ages as I don't need to use it all in one go (more like 4-6 goes. Thanks!

Walnut Shadow

I use the walnut shadow to cover my grey hairs. The colour doesn't wash out, but stays in my hair for ages (unfortunately I need to redo the roots frequently, but that's life!) I love Desert Shadow because I'm really sensitive to chemicals, and conventional products make me itch. When I use Desert Shadow I don't get (much) itching. Thank you!

Walnut shadow henna hair dye

Really nice colour

Written by Sarah on 2nd Jun 2022

I'm a convert!

It's the first time I've tried an organic dye like this. I have psoriasis of the scalp and was just absorbing toxins into my raw skin previously. This is a gentle-feeling and natural alternative and I love it. Effectively covered my greys and the colour is gorgeous on my medium brown hair. I was a bit daunted by the more complicated process of mixung the dye, but after doing it once I know I'll be much quicker next time. I'm definitely going to be using this dye from now on. Thrilled to have discovered it!

I just have to write this review because I am absolutely AMAZED at the results from this product. I am in my mid 30s and am getting patches of grey hairs popping up (mainly underneath). I am very conscious of toxins in my skincare abs hair care. I usually have a semi permanent dye done at my eco hairdresser and even though it’s lovely, it is very expensive and doesn’t really leave my hair looking very healthy for long. I thought I’d try Desert Shadow although I was terrified the colour would have a red tinge to it (which a lot of henna colours do). To my surprise the colour is stunning and not red at all. I have washed it twice since colouring it and it’s noticeably shiny. I have sun damage which no hair mask was helping. I love the colour, it’s so rich and beautiful. Has covered my greys well (some look more golden now but it’s ok). The only downside is the prep work but once you get the hang in it it feels like a special ritual. Love the me time. What a great product!
